    From the French Market, you’ll embark on the picturesque streets of the French Quarter where your guide will take you to some of their favorite palate-pleasing spots.

    On this half of your tour, you’ll also have the chance to try a dish that sparks more controversy amongst chefs than any other in New Orleans: gumbo.

    You’ll finish off the food portion of your tour with a sweet treat made from locally grown sugarcane and the region’s abundant pecans.
