Description

Experience the best travel stories for yourself! Join a local expert and uncover hidden gems on this Lonely Planet Experience powered by Urban Adventures.

You’ll begin your tour in the most iconic spot in New Orleans, Jackson Square. From here, the best and most historic bars of The French Quarter are all within a stone’s throw. We will be going beyond the tourist trail to show you what really makes New Orleans cocktail culture unique. For our first stop we will travel back to the 1700s and visit a bar which used to entertain some of the most eccentric characters in New Orleans history. Here, we will taste a famous drink of the city and learn how it has influenced New Orleans drinking culture today. New Orleans has a wide range of delicious dessert-like cocktails. On this tour, we will visit one of your guide’s favorite bars and taste a drink so good you’ll forget there’s alcohol in it.

Next up, we will sample the ‘official cocktail of New Orleans’: the Sazerac. One of the first cocktails ever invented, it’s definitely tasty enough to stand the test of time. From here, we will taste another classic New Orleans invention, while exploring some of the oldest bars and restaurants in the French Quarter. We’ll also get a behind-the-scenes peek into a courtyard oasis, a stunning hidden feature that makes these buildings special, giving well-known customers a classy room to drink in, hidden away from plain sight.

Last but not least, we will visit one of the classiest establishments in New Orleans to try one of the city’s most esteemed drinks, the Ramos Gin Fizz.

Sophie was awesome! Very personable and knowledgeable. She has lived in New Orleans for four years as a student and knows all the great places to go that locals go to. Such a fun tour! It was a small group tour with 5 different cocktails to try! Can’t go wrong with this one!

We are local and did this tour and absolutely had a ball. We were able to try cocktails and go to places that we had never been before. I highly recommend this tour. It was a small group of about 12. i recommend that you wear comfortable walking shoes because we explored all different parts of the French Quarter.
