My 10 year old son loves anything to do with history. We spend most of our 4th of July in the museum! Will need to go back to see what we missed.
We did not get to the museum too much before closing and did not get to see very much. But we really enjoyed the airplane exhibit.
Wonderful, very educational and the staff was great.

Chef Rene was a great instructor for the demonstration cooking class. Funny, historically informative and of course his jambalaya, gumbo, bread pudding and pralines were amazing!
Pat, our chef for the experience was delightful. She was entertaining and gave great history of the area. She was conversational and it wasn't like she was following a script. The food was delicious and she made us all confident that we could make the recipes at home! The best part of our New Orleans trip!
Very interesting, informative and delicious. Loved it and enjoyed shopping in the general store. Thanks.

Atmosphere, food, service and music was amazing!
Fantastic brunch w/excellent service.
Wonderful sampling of New Orleans cuisine. We sat right next to the Jazz band, and were afraid we'd be blasted out, but the volume was perfect! The staff was extremely courteous and attentive. The garden is just beautiful!

Pat did an amazing job of sharing New Orleans rich history while teaching us the delicious dishes she made. Wonderful morning of food and fun!
Our chef Pat was just great, giving us great cooking tips as well as a history of New Orleans food culture. The whole experience was very enjoyable, including chatting with other guests at round tables. When you figure that you also get lunch, we felt it was a good value. For me as a celiac (can't eat wheat/flour), the eating part was a bit unsatisfying. The 'dietary restriction' meal seemed to be the same for vegetarian or celiac. So I was served a veggie gumbo and a veggie creole sauce on rice. Meh. This is the only part of things that could be a lot better.
Every year during our annual vacation, we book the 10:00 cooking school. Each year it is a different chef instructing. It is entertaining, educational, you get instruction sheets on how it is being made, then after watching the chef prepare it, you get to eat it! You learn about local food tradition and history of the people that brought those food traditions into the area. I highly recommend this activity even if you don’t do the cooking in your household.

See a different side of New Orleans with this unique, must-see New Orleans City Bus Tour. Stretch out on a cozy tour bus...
I booked this tour a week and a half in advance. The website advertised an 8:30 till 10:30 tour with hotel pick up if you're staying in the French Quarter. Great! I got a call the day before saying there was no pick up and the tour time was 9:30 till 11:30. I had to call and change dinner reservations and check to see if my hotel had in and out privileges for valet but I decided to stick with it. I'm glad we did. Matthew was AMAZING!! He is super knowledgeable and cracks jokes. He has even more fun facts to share if there are no kids present. The sights were pretty dark so a flashlight would be great but you won't be disappointed. There were a few people in our group that pre-purchased drinks on the website for our stop at Bulldogs. There seemed to have been some complications with the manager but they were able to get their drinks. Apparently it was a first time. Overall super fun and super educational. I would recommend this tour.
My husband and I visited NOLA for the weekend for our anniversary. I found this tour on a web search when I was looking for activities. Tyler was very informative, energetic, friendly, and knowledgeable. It was an awesome experience I would definitely do as a first time visitor or a repeater.
Andrew was a great tour guide. We enjoyed the entire tour and highly recommend it!!
