This New Orleans food tour has every culinary taste covered. With a history-savvy guide leading the way, you’ll walk from classic Creole restaurants and neighborhood sandwich shops to hot sauce bars and artisanal candy stores. Visit up to six locations to sample diverse foods representing the breadth of Louisiana’s culinary heritage, including dishes like seafood gumbo, Creole brisket, po-boys and pralines. Learn about the historical origins of each cuisine and, when possible, hear the chefs discuss their influences. Enjoy plenty of food on this afternoon tour.

Meet your guide in the French Quarter in the afternoon and begin your food tour of New Orleans at SoBou, one of three restaurants owned by the award-winning Commander’s Palace family. Sit down and relax as you are treated to three street food-inspired dishes that showcase modern New Orleans cuisine: fried pork cracklings, boudin balls with Creole mustard, and a sweet potato and duck beignet topped with a foie gras fondue.

Listen to a narrative history of Louisiana cuisine, starting with the culinary contributions of local American Indian tribes and leading to the arrival of the Europeans and West Africans who created its Creole flavors. You’ll hear about the unique geography of southern Louisiana, as well as the linguistic origins of dozens of local dishes, from beignets and étouffée to gumbo and jambalaya.

If you’d like, purchase a drink at the full bar before moving on to a stop at the Pepper Palace Hot Sauce Bar, where you can sample dozens of different hot sauces, BBQ sauces, dry rubs, seasonings and more.

Third stop is Leah’s Pralines, a candy shop established in 1933. After learning its history, taste a Creole praline and sample the bacon pecan brittle.

Next, bite into two New Orleans inventions: the muffuletta and the po-boy. Both are served at the funky dive NOLA Po-boys, a local joint with an immense menu. Discuss the 19th and 20th century history of the New Orleans' immigrants as you sample the fried catfish poboy on freshly baked New Orleans–style French bread before moving on to the slightly warmed muffuletta: an Italian-style sandwich of ham, salami, mortadella, provolone cheese, mozzarella cheese and New Orleans-style olive salad.

The next stop is Tujague’s, the second-oldest restaurant in New Orleans, serving up classic Creole cuisine since 1856. Discover the culinary contributions of the butchers of the French Market while you dig into one delicious dish: the Bavarian-style slow-cooked beef brisket.

Your final stop is Dickie Brennan's Tableau where you will enjoy a savory Seafood Gumbo. Tableau is owned and operated by a distinguished local restauranteur and located in the heart of New Orleans, the historic Jackson Square. By the time the tour ends happy hour will have started at Tableau.

The walking tour covers about one and a half miles (2.4 km) at a leisurely pace.

Meet your guide upstairs at Tiki Tolteca, a hidden tiki-themed oasis, to start your tour. Your local guide presents a fun and fascinating introduction to New Orleans’ and the world's cocktail culture as you sip your first drink. The tour begins with a refreshing, rum-laced Mai Tai inspired by the English sailors working in the 1600's Indian spice trade. 

Next, turn the corner to visit SoBou, where you sample the official cocktail of New Orleans: the Sazerac, a drink that comes from a 19th-century recipe.

Take a break from the hustle-bustle of New Orleans and escape to nature on this exhilarating, family-friendly airboat ride! Spot alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets and herons as you take a fast, fun ride over a tidewater cypress swamp close to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Admire moss-covered cypress and tupelo-gum trees as you explore bayous teeming with life and take advantage of incredible photo ops.

This small-group tour is limited to eight people (small airboat) or 25 people (large airboat) to allow for better views of the wildlife.

Please note: If you book the self-drive option you will not receive hotel pick up

Drive-out approximately 30 miles (48 km) to the embarkation point of your airboat from your New Orleans hotel. Depending on the option you selected, board a large airboat holding 15 to 25 passengers or a small airboat limited to six to eight passengers for a more intimate, personalized experience.

Set out on a 20,000-acre (8,095-hectare) tract of tidewater cypress swamp close to the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. Your flat-bottomed airboat is powered by an aircraft propeller to allow a fast, fluid trip through the shallow marshes. Feel the wind on your face as you zip into bayous lined with mossy cypress and tupelo-gum trees and your pilot points out a stunning variety of wildlife.

Prepare to see plenty of alligators in the warmer months (and warmer days in winter), some of which may be out sunning themselves on rocks! Your guide may even feed the gators, affording you amazing photo opportunities. Also keep your eyes open for turtles, snakes, egrets, herons and ibis. You may even catch sight of a hawk, owl or bald eagle. In the cooler months, look for white-tailed deer, raccoons and the large rodents known as nutria.

Your morning or afternoon airboat tour ends at the embarkation point. Be sure to check out the indoor exhibits of alligators — including an albino alligator — before making your way back to downtown New Orleans on your own.
