What you can expect

Let your appetite take the lead on a memorable food tour through New Orleans that allows you to discover the vivid history of the French Quarter. Sample tasty morsels like spicy seafood gumbo, savory muffaleta sandwiches, and creamy gelato as you wander past Victorian façades and Creole cottages.

Begin your sumptuous excursion in one of New Orleans' most storied restaurants—Tujague's—the city's second oldest eating establishment dating back to 1856. Taste signature dishes like brisket with Creole sauce and seafood gumbo, and learn about the French couple who founded the restaurant after immigrating to the United States during the Civil War-era.

Moving on, meander the French Quarter's colorful streets toward Antoine's Restaurant—a fabled locale with a 175-year past. At Antoine's, enjoy a delectable mufaletta sandwich prepared with mouthwatering layers of meat inside a sesame roll. Then, indulge in a sample of gelato for dessert—marveling at its cold and smooth texture.

Before your tour is complete, come to understand the differences between Creole and Cajun cuisine, absorbing information about the many cultures that have come to influence contemporary New Orleans cooking. Depart the tour with an appreciation of the city's history through the lens of its vivid culinary scene.
