It’s true: what most people think of as delicacies, we include in our daily diet here in New Orleans. Seafood is a cornerstone of our culture. And we want to share it with you!
This full lunch walking tour will guide you through a cornucopia of seafood delights, with our local blue crab, crawfish, Gulf oysters, and some of the most beautiful shrimp you’ve ever seen. While you feast along the route, we will also discuss how our seafood is different from the rest of world. You’ll learn how oysters are cultivated, why we’re so crazy for crawfish, and how locals “go crabbing.”
But that’s all just the appetizer.
After a few short tasting stops, it’s time for deviled crab and a down-home, picnic-style shrimp boil! You’ll be able to see the pot, smell the seasonings, and learn the secrets for hosting your own boil back home. Then, roll up those sleeves—we’re going to eat! We’re talking about a table topped with newspapers and the whole shebang. Plenty of large, peel-and-eat shrimp to go around plus the other boil staples: potatoes or corn on the cob, and sausage. Finished with homemade dessert…it just can’t get any better than this!
Seating is limited. Price includes all food and restaurant costs; alcoholic beverages can be purchased separately.
This is a walking tour (about 0.75 mile total) on uneven sidewalks, so wear comfortable shoes and prepare for the weather (sun, cold, or rain, depending on the season). Contact us prior to booking if guests cannot walk up and down a flight of stairs. This tour does not accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, salt-free dietary restrictions or seafood allergies of any kind. At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately).
We’ll meet on the steps of the Louisiana Supreme Court Building, 400 Royal Street, across the street from Brennan’s Restaurant in the French Quarter.
While we can offer substitutions for most dishes to pescatarians, we cannot accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, kosher, or low salt diets. Those very sensitive to spicy food may also want to consider another tour.
You will walk approximately 0.75 miles on this tour.
This is definitely NOT the tour for those with a shellfish allergy! You may want to consider the Magazine Street Foodie Tour instead.
This tour is not suitable for children under six years old. In addition, there are restaurants which can be quite packed and difficult for a stroller. Depending on the preferred tour date, we may be able to accommodate younger children and strollers on a private tour (please contact us for details).
The first few stops will be smaller portions, but the shrimp boil will be a full meal! Come hungry!
We’ve priced the tour without the inclusion of drinks so that our guests can decide for themselves if they want to share a drink, have their own drink, or not drink at all.
Our tours run rain or shine; please bring an umbrella or poncho in order to stay dry during the tour. If the weather is severe enough that it poses a danger, we will call you to explain our decision and discuss alternatives (this is why it’s very important to list a good cell phone number when booking online!). If we cancel a tour because of severe weather, all guests will be given a full refund.
The typical menu will consist of a variety of seafood and shellfish. Because we love anticipation (and because the tour may change on a given day because of restaurant closures/changes), we don’t release where we go or what we eat –– except to say that it’s all wonderful!
This tour will max out at 9 guests. We pride ourselves on small group sizes so you’ll never be a part of one of those massive tour groups!
Children 12 and under who share portions with their parents will be $35. If your child is a big eater, you may want to consider buying a full-priced ticket!
