Famous Flavors of the French Quarter Food Tour
From USD 59.50
Take a bite out of the French Quarter on this walking food tour in New Orleans. A foodie guide shows you how to dodge the tourist traps and find authentic Creole and Cajun favorites such as pralines, shrimp and grits, po’ boys, and French pastries. This tour is a great way to satisfy your appetite while learning tidbits of local history along the way.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at The Shops at the Colonnade in the French Quarter and set off by foot to explore some of 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 including 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.

The tour ends in the French Quarter.

Fun tour with great food

We were a group of four visiting from Ireland and went on the seafood tour, and the regular food tour on consecutive days. Tish was our guide and we really enjoyed both experiences. I'd fully recommend checking at least one of these out!
