Miss Mary was an excellent tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her. The kids are still talking about Miss Mary and all the delicious food experiences we had with her. Definitely worth the money.

Naïf was fantastic! He took us to 5 different places and we tried nice portions of Po boy sandwich, gumbo, rice and beans, turtle soup and pralines. As we walked from place to place he talked about the city’s history. He was quite enthusiastic and time flew by. I would recommend this tour !

I, my husband and three adult children had a wonderful time with Naïf! We had 14 people on the tour and Naif’s energy and fun way just kicked it off! I knew it was going to be a blast! He is such a history buff and a lover of all things New Orleans and the whole area! Each sampling was great, although my two adult boys thought the portions were a tad small that would be the only only negative comment ! We went back to a couple of the restaurants for dinner it was a delight thank you Naif! We feel like we are friends already we will be back! The Piper’s
