Famous Flavors of the French Quarter Food Tour
From US$56,00
Take a bite out of the French Quarter on a walking food tour in New Orleans. A foodie guide shows you how to dodge the tourist traps and find authentic Creole and Cajun favorites like pralines, shrimp and grits, po’ boys, and French pastries. It's a great way to satisfy your appetite while learning fascinating tidbits of local history along the way.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the French Quarter and set off by foot to explore the neighborhood’s best dishes, served up with a side of local history. Near the historic French Market, savor shrimp and creamy cheese grits at Cafe Fleur De Lis. Try cajun red beans and rice at Tujague’s, housed in a former Spanish armory, and sink your teeth into a savory muffaletta sandwich in a quiet Creole courtyard.

Try famous southern sweets like sticky pralines and handmade chocolate at Laura’s Pralines and Candies, New Orleans' oldest candy store that dates back to the 18th century. Taste the city’s French influence with fresh-baked pastries at the Croissant D’Or Patisserie. All together, the five food stops include enough samplings to make up a satisfying lunch.

Richard was a great tour guide and storyteller! The tour was as much a history tour as it was a food tour, and it really helped tie the city together for us. Good food at fun stops, and lots of suggestions for the rest of...More
