In the video from Marie's website, she says to "wear your stretchy pants". Indeed! We have taken a number of food tours (North America, South America, Europe) and this was one of the very best. Food is part of culture and Marie weaves Cajun history, food and personality seamlessly with enthusiasm, knowledge, pride, passion and ... enthusiasm. Very informative and great fun!

Being from South Louisiana and of Cajun heritage my expectations were moderated a bit when I agreed to take the tour. I was truly surprised by the trip as a whole; sample meals were not merely taste testing samples, Jay was a great host and resource for questions, the staff at our 5 destinations were great, and our group was fun. Yep, I'm up for another tour, without a doubt.

Their Around the World Tour was so much fun!! We loved the food & also the education we were given; from Jay, about the food and the cultures they came from. It was a very fun night out with some friends who are all locals. It was the perfect opportunity for us all to visit and catch up with each other while we all road together on the bus. Thanks for given us a great experience!!

The Cajun Food tour was absolutely the best thing we did on our getaway to Lafayette! We are semi locals (from LaPlace) but love the rich history and culture of Lafayette. Marie was an outstanding guide who made you feel as though you were on a trip with an old friend.
I cannot stop talking about this tour! Can't wait to do it again!

Having grown up in Louisiana and now living in California, I was pleasantly surprised by this incredible food tour. Marie is the perfect guide balancing a depthful knowledge of Cajun history with a charming, warm and personable approach to each of her guests. The food at each stop was a great value and each dish was plentiful. I would highly recommend this tour to any and all who appreciate good food and a good time!
