This is a very informative tour, lots of history and not a lot of emphasis on the cocktails. We were able to buy several drinks along the way if you wanted, I was disappointed in most of the drinks, even if they were supposed to be "famous", they were over priced for what they were. But our guide, Dionne, was a great source of information and it was easy to tell that she was having a good time informing the group about all the history of New Orleans and the French Quarter. She made the tour a great experience! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

We knew it would be fun and it defitnitely exceeded our expectations!

Brian took us to the bars at all the old famous restaurants for their special libation- Antoine's -Sazerac, Broussard's -Pimms Cup, Hotel Monteleone - Vieux Carre and Court of Two Sisters -Bayou Bash! I'm not really a whiskey drinker but these were good drinks! We also got some family stories and history of the buildings. Very enjoyable.

Such an interesting tour, and Joe was brilliant

I had a great time on the tour, learning about the fascinating history of New Orleans and getting to see behind the scenes of some of the most iconic restaurants in the city. Joe was very entertaining and well informed and he made the tour what it was. Thoroughly recommended.
