We visited three restaurants, and one praline shop, Laura's. Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable of all things New Orleans, specifically food! Great tour with sampling of various local food offerings from famous well established, historical restaurants. The only thing not so great - spent $22 dollars in Laura's and the sales clerk/cashier, who I am told is the owner's daughter or niece, seemed annoyed to be at work and inconvenienced to help me with my selections. After ringing me up and taking my money, she handed my card back to me without so much as a thank you. Not cool.

Not impressed. Only received 5 samples and the reservations stated 7. Taking free samples from a Candy Store does not count. Very disappointed.
