Dr. Gumbo Tours: Food History Tour – New Orleans, Lousiana

Reviewed by FoodTourFinder!
See our review in the Comments section


Chefs are the new rock stars and this tour is a delicious journey through New Orleans and Louisiana’s rich culinary history! Down here we’re passionate about eating, so along with your guide you will visit up to 7 locations: classic Creole restaurants, neighborhood sandwich shops, hot sauce bars, artisanal candy stores and more. Once inside you’ll sample different foods that represent the breadth and diversity of our culinary heritage: dishes like gumbo, Creole brisket, muffulettas, poboys, pralines and much more.

We cover New Orleans’ various restaurant family dynasties, we discuss recipes old and new, we visit restaurants that pre-date the American Civil War, we recommend places to eat and places to shop. When possible the chefs come out to visit the groups and discuss their influences and passions. And with so many dining options in New Orleans, why not try 7 different places in one fell swoop?!

The 3-hour walking tour is conducted at a leisurely pace and with small groups. Most of the restaurant stops feature fully stocked bars if you’d like to enjoy a cold beverage (adult or otherwise!) during the tour.

Where: SoBou | 310 Chartres Street, New Orleans, LA

    This tour, led by Dr. Gumbo’s delightful wife “Nurse Gumbo,” took us to some of NOLA’s most stylish restaurants, as well as some little hole-in-the-wall spots. It was a great mix of cuisine, from pralines and po-boys to more sophisticated cuisine. All along the way, Nurse Gumbo wove in the history of the city as it related to the food we were eating. You have a chance to go inside and sit down at many of the stops. That makes a big difference in the New Orleans’ heat! I could tell that the Gumbo gang are real pros in terms of how they handled all the logistics. Even though we were a fairly large group, the tour never seemed unwieldy or disorganized. I highly recommend this polished, professional tour, which had such an abundance of food that it took the place of two meals!
