    Nice little tour to see a lot of the "off the beaten path" areas. A lot of the guide's regular spots were closed because of COVID-19 but he did a great job in making up for things.

What people are saying about French Market, New Orleans

The tour was wonderful! Don’t make the mistake of eating before the tour like we did. My thought was the samples will b small and not enough to fill us up. Boy was I wrong! The samples were a pretty decent size and quite filling. Our guide Lauren was great! Very personable and easy going. She was also very accommodating to my non beef and pork eating husband and son. I forgot to mention that when I made the reservations but she was able to appease them by coming up with different food options to suit their needs.

This was a fun and tasty tour. Angela was a fantastic guide, took the time to get to know the personal tastes of the individuals in the group, and was very knowledgeable. There is more than enough food at all the stops to be a compete meal. We sampled gumbo, jambalaya, boudin sausage, muffulettas and po’boys, beignets and pralines.
