Eat Like A Local: New Orleans Garden District Food & History Tour

About this experience

What you'll do:

Visit three food stops that highlight New Orleans history through flavors on this guided walking tour of the Garden District. After a brief tour of the neighborhood's architecture & history, enjoy a full meal of unique Cajun and Creole specialties, spread out over 3 local eateries. Start at the Lafayette Cemetery to hear the unique funeral customs and traditions of New Orleans and the history of the city's early years. Then explore the architecture of the Garden District, home to historic mansions, colorful shotgun houses, and beautiful oak trees. Your first food stop includes an indulgent taste of Creole fusion and the multicultural influences of Italians, Germans, Irish & Afro-Carribeans that shaped the 300-year-old city. Two food stops also include your choice of local craft beers, frozen drinks, house sangria or mimosa (or a non-alcoholic beverage) and at our beignet stop, sip a cafe au lait. Along the way, check out locally-owned shops, vintage stores, an artist co-op and gallery.
