New Orleans: Garden District Food and History Tour

1. New Orleans: Garden District Food and History Tour

Start at the Lafayette cemetery, where you will learn about the unique funeral customs and traditions of New Orleans. During the guided walk to the first restaurant stop, you will explore the architecture of the Garden District, home to historic mansions, colorful shotgun houses, and hauntingly beautiful oak trees. Then, check out local shops on Magazine Street. Visit three food stops that highlight Cajun and Creole flavors and history. The first food stop is an indulgent taste of Creole fusion and the multicultural influences that shaped the 300-year-old city. You'll also learn the history of the Cajun people and the influence of their hunting and farming society on the food culture of Louisiana. Along the way, visit locally-owned shops and an art gallery before finishing on a sweet note at the dessert stop for specialty, filled beignets, and cafe au lait. The first two food stops include either a choice from a menu of craft beers from local breweries, a cocktail, house sangria, or mimosa. Non-alcoholic drinks are also included and vegetarians and many dietary allergies can be accommodated. You'll also get plenty of recommendations for local fun on your trip so book for the start of your time in New Orleans.

Tour was great, mostly because of the experience of the tour operator, the DELICIOUS food, and our guide’s love of her neighborhood! We heard bits and pieces of history, mixed in with information about the area and local shops. We left stuffed, and even took some food back to our hotel. You get to choose your own food, which is unlike any tour we’ve ever been on before, and everything was so yummy (not an exaggeration)! This tour was some of the best money spent during our time in New Orleans!

This was such a fun tour! We stopped at 3 different places to eat/drink and got to learn about the area and New Orleans in general at each stop and in between. Michelle was so nice and incredibly smart! The food we had (red beans and rice, napoleon, stuffed beignets and roast beef po boys) was all delicious! Highly suggest doing this tour and seeing the area!

This was a great tour! Lots of great information Michelle was a great guide for the virgin traveler in NO!! Great tips and history! We loved her so much we passed her card on. Other people we bumped into were very jealous of our experience!! We wanted to share it with everyone!

It was actually a tour of where the locals ate and the food was delicious. Michelle (our tour guide) was informative and knew the history of the garden district. Would highly recommend.

The guide Michelle was Great! She was very knowledgeable and gave us a great lesson in New Orleans History, culture, architecture and food.
