Overview

New Orleans stands as one of the most unique culinary destinations in the U.S., known especially for a dish that carries with it the story of the city and its people: gumbo. On this tour of the French Quarter, we’ll delight your taste buds with the various styles of gumbo and learn why this hearty dish captures the essence of the Crescent City. With a local guide, you’ll be visiting beloved and lesser-known eateries serving up the best of gumbo, discovering the ingredients that go into creating the Creole, Cajun, Native American, and African influences that have evolved as immigrants shaped the city’s food scene. This tour will have you soaking up the rich history of New Orleans and the last of your bowl with some French bread, ending with a classic dessert with a story of its own. Along the way, your guide will be pointing out buildings that represent the city’s mix of cultures just as much as gumbo, including the Parisian-inspired Pontalba buildings and iconic St. Louis Cathedral
