Combining the history of Louisiana cuisine and New Orleans-style cocktails, this event is a feast for the senses! 

Along with your guide you will visit up 6 locations: award-winning seafood restaurants, James Beard Award-nominated craft cocktail lounges, Creole restaurants, artisanal candy stores and more.

Once inside you’ll sample up to 9 or more different dishes that represent the modern expressions of our culinary heritage: classic dishes like gumbo, and muffulettas, but also new interpretations like savory fried plantains and curried pork skins!

We'll also enjoy 4 full-sized cocktails like the refreshing Pimm's Cup, the rum-heavy Hurricane, the classic Daiquiri and more!

This 4-hour gastronomic odyssey is our way of showing you where we like to go now, and what we like to eat and drink once we're there.

With so many dining and drinking options in New Orleans, why not try up to 6 different places in one fell swoop?!

Note: all venues subject to change based on availability.


  • All-inclusive tour

The variety of food and drinks was great. Loved the history of the places we went and the food and beverages we consumed! Best tip is to not eat before tour - it is not just tiny tastes - it is a lot of delucious food!!

Great tour. Learned a lot of history throughout the food samples. I enjoyed almost everything, glad we booked it. My only complaint was that the guide had us start late because we were waiting on other guests even through the email made it clear we start on time. We were 15 minutes early like suggested, so we waited for close to 30 minutes.

Food and drinks were great but the history provided by our guide was the greatest. Left understanding much more about New Orleans and the origin of the food and drink we were enjoying.

A group of us went on the Cocktail & Food tour the day after Halloween, hungover and exhausted from partying for 3 days, but Dr. Gumbo soon lifted our spirits (no pun intended). We had an absolute blast trying all the different foods and drinks, and Dr Gumbo is super knowledgeable about local history and culture and a fantastic tour guide. By the end of the tour we were all re-energized and ready to go again. We would definitely love to do one of his tours again the next time we're in Nola! Highly recommended! (we did our tour in 2020 but TripAdvisor doesn't allow selecting dates from prior years)

Ben was a great guide and gave us tons of information. This was a great way to sample the local cuisine without the hassle of finding everything and the wait to get in everywhere. Lots of information about the history of the cuisine and the venues were comfortable. The experience was so great.
