The #1 Lafayette Tour!

Blown Away by Hospitality

We loved this tour from start to finish. We recently moved to Louisiana and wanted to get a taste of the good stuff. We were blown away by Marie’s hospitality. Even despite COVID restrictions she made the whole tour a blast and we left with our bellies full. With so many different restaurants on the tour and no two tours the same, we will indeed be back!

You've got to take this tour!

Y’all - if you’re ever in the area, you’ve got to tale this tour!!! We went to five places and got to sample the BEST food. And I say ‘sample’ lightly- very generous portions at each place . Such a great way to taste so many different Cajun foods. And there is an ice chest on the bus , so you can make purchases along the way ! Jay was our guide- so knowledgeable on food history . Go do this! You’ll be sooo glad you did!!

Left Feeling Happy & Full

Had a great time with Marie! We loved meeting the restaurant owner at our first stop and hearing how it's thrived through generations. Loved the variety of stops and all the food was delicious. Marie would offer information about the history of the food and culture at each place and was happy to answer all of our questions. She is not only knowledgeable but passionate and we loved hearing her story as well. We left feeling happy and full! We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting both near and far!

Fun & Easy to Relax

The Cajun Food Tour was wonderful. Marie knows the local history & has connections with some of the best restaurants with the most delicious food in the area. It was wonderful to just hop on the bus & let her take control of the afternoon. She made it fun & easy to relax with local friends as well as meeting new friends from out of the area. I highly recommend it.

Absolutely fantastic afternoon!!

If you are in Lafayette, you need to do this tour!! We were lucky today in that we had both Marie and Whitney as our guides. We shared the tour with visitors from Missouri, Minnesota and locals from Broussard. Our food included crawfish, gumbo, boudin, cracklin, smoked sausage, alligator, pizza, some local wonder and deep fried Oreos. Great way to spend three hours, meet great people and taste great local cuisine!!

Loved every minute of it!

My husband and I had a fantastic time on our tour this week! We had a chance to shop at a couple of the establishments, there was nice variety in the places we stopped and the food we tried, and Marie was outstanding! Very knowledgeable about the area, the history of Acadiana and cajun culture, and food. Cajun Food Tours is definitely a MUST if you visit Lafayette! Thankfully we live close enough to do all of the tours :)

Great experience

Wonderful way to try a variety of food and different restaurants. Jay was our guide...he was very knowledgeable of not only food and food prep, but the history of the area. Also stopped at a local meat market which gave us an opportunity to shop. Wrapping up our two week stay in Lafayette, wish we’d done this last week...we would have made different food choices. Put this tour at the top of your things to do while in Lafayette list.

A Great Taste of Louisiana

Nancy & I did the afternoon Cajun Food Tour on Monday, April 8. Marie & Whitney made the tour a wonderful experience. Marie’s Cajun roots, her extensive historical knowledge of the Acadian area of Louisiana, and her thoughtful scheduling of authentic Cajun “must try” foods made this tour unforgettable. This tour should be #1 on your agenda when you plan a trip to Louisiana.

Let's Go Eat!

A terrific time was had by all of my group of Vermilion Parish Retired Teachers. Marie is so knowledgeable about all of the restaurants we visited as well as their specialties. The first thing she does when you board the van is present you with two gifts as she tells you the rules for the tour. Then it's time for "Allons Manger" which is Cajun French for "let's go eat!". I am not able to tell you all of the great places we went to as its part of the "surprise " aspect of the tour. I will tell you however that you would be wise not to eat breakfast before you start the Original Cajun Taste Tour! Marie offers at least three other food tours and they all promise to be as enjoyable as the one I am reviewing!!

A Must Do

What a great experience!! We had been on this tour a few years ago and planned our recent trip to get to Lafayette again for their tour. Marie is wonderful, and so helpful. We called and asked for recommendations for the night prior to our tour. The place she recommended was great! Marie is so knowledgeable about the food, culture and activities around the area. A must do if you are in the area!
