Make your way to the Freret neighborhood of New Orleans. (Private transportation from your hotel can be arranged at an additional fee by contacting tour provider after booking.) This little-visited uptown neighborhood may not make it into most guidebooks, but it is well-known by locals for packing serious flavor into just a few blocks.

Stroll down the streets with your group of at most 12 people and take in the views: French-inspired architecture, sidewalk cafes, parks, and classic shotgun houses set the scene for casual Southern dining. Sample a variety of authentic New Orleans food like gumbo lagniappe, Natchez-style meat pies, and locally made gelato. Learn about each food’s origin and cultural significance from chefs, restaurant owners, and your guide as you go.

Conclude your tour at a James Beard award-winning bar beloved by locals. Some drinks are included, but you are welcome to purchase more at your own expense. When your guide leaves, feel free to stay and let the good times roll.

Please note: All guests must be 21 or older to participate and bring along a valid photo ID.

Kristi put the Fun in the Funky Freret Street Tour!

I've been on a number of food tours in other cities and the one thing that Kristi did better than the others was first making introductions of each person on this small tour (10 of us) and facilitating interaction among us which lead to one of the most enjoyable tours I've been on. Sure the food is important, but the mood is even more! But on to the food. We were glad to get out of the French Quarter to see a different neighborhood and their take on NOLA classics. Not everything I tried was a hit for me but most of it was very good to outstanding. My favorite turned out to be the alligator sausage at Dat Dog...the thing i thought I'd like the least! That's why doing food tours are so great, they take you to places you wouldn't go to on your own and you sample things you might not otherwise try. Thanks Kristi for a great afternoon...the group stayed for a while after you left and we all had a great time together!!
