New Orleans Food and History Tour
US$ 70.00
Overview
Combine New Orleans’ best assets—history and food—on this guided tour of the French Quarter. Visit six local-approved restaurants that specialize in classics such as po’boys, gumbo, and beignets at establishments that live up to their hype, and pick up bits of New Orleans' history and trivia along the way.
What to Expect
Begin your tour at the award-winning restaurant SoBou, which specializes in street-food inspired dishes such as boudin balls, pork cracklings, and savory beignets. As you dig in, learn about the American Indian, European, and West African roots of Louisiana cuisine.

Continue to Pepper Palace Hot Sauce Bar to sample dozens of sauces and rubs, followed by a stop at the historical Leah’s Pralines candy shop. Try the shop's signature bacon pecan brittle, and learn the history of this Southern sweet.

Next, bite into two New Orleans inventions, the muffuletta and the po’boy, both served at a funky NOLA dive. Discuss 19th- and 20th-century immigration of New Orleans as you eat these favorite lunchtime sandwiches.

Polish off your tour with Creole cuisine at Tujague’s, which has been in operation since 1856, and Dickie Brennan’s Tableau, famous for its seafood gumbo.

Your tour concludes at Dickie Brennan’s, just in time to take advantage of their happy hour deals.

Yes, 3 hours but easy pace. Our guide was Ben Wisdom and he talked as we walked about different food topics. Very enjoyable afternoon.
