    This is a must take tour for anyone who loves good food. Every stop was better than the first and the ending was the most delicious stop ever (I’m not going to spoil the surprise… lol). We do plan to do it again but try the walking tour that time. We also meet some great people and learned a lot of information about Lafayette.

    This is our second tour, the first one was all around the world and the second was Cajun food taste tour. We had Jay both times as our driver and he was awesome very informative. This time we went with some family members one was from Manvel, Texas and they really enjoyed it also. We are already thinking of planning another tour!!! Thanks for a great time!!!!

    Nice tour

  4. 5 out of 5


    Had a great time on the new tour, which featured a trip to Vermilionville, a boat ride in the swamp, visit to a boucaniere (sp.?), even a dance lesson at the new Rock n’ Bowl. Filled with wonderful information and great fun and companionship. Although we are from nearby, we always feel we can do more to appreciate our heritage.

    I found this tour “Cajun Food Tours” in the Allons – Lafayette’s Inspiration Journal. My husband and I had a wonderful time . We enjoyed the company of our host Marie, and other guests. We stopped to 5 eateries and enjoyed the local food, something we would not have done on our own. The food samplers were delicious, and we were so satisfied that we had to skip dinner that night. We will do this tour again on our next visit. I recommend it to anyone who visit Lafayette.

    Marie Ducote’s food tour is one of the most enjoyable tours around. Whether you are a tourist or a native, she manages to delight. If it’s a place you have frequented many times, she manages to pull an item that you have never thought to try before and are truly surprised with. If it’s a place you never heard of, get ready—it’s great! I went on the morning tour and simply cannot wait to go on the afternoon one!

  7. 5 out of 5


    I had eight ladies both family and friends join me for my 60th birthday. We all had a blast! Not only was the food delicious, but the historical tidbits Marie shared along the way were wonderful too. I would definitely love to do this again!

  8. 5 out of 5


    Their Around the World Tour was so much fun!! We loved the food & also the education we were given; from Jay, about the food and the cultures they came from. It was a very fun night out with some friends who are all locals. It was the perfect opportunity for us all to visit and catch up with each other while we all road together on the bus. Thanks for given us a great experience!!

  9. 5 out of 5


    First food tour but won’t be our last!!! We had so much fun with Marie. She was well-prepared and well-organized which meant that we got to relax and enjoy. The food was fantastic. Marie’s knowledge of the history and the culture really added to the experience. She has curated a good relationship with the people and places at all our stops. We got to hear from a lot of the owners — each had an interesting story and/or information in addition to their great food. Even my skeptical 20 year old son commented, “That was really good!” —a high compliment from him.

  10. 5 out of 5


    Truly an amazing experience. Had such a great time and sampled some great food. We went on the Breaux Bridge tour. Our tour guide was top notch and made sure we all had a great experience. Recommend this tour to everyone.

  11. 5 out of 5


    Breaux Bridge Walking Tour: This is just as much fun as the Cajun Food Tour. Whitney is vivacious and knowledgeable. At each of the four food stops, we tasted more than one item. The offerings were plentiful. At the carefully chosen shops, we received small gifts. The historical side of the tour was interesting. Strolling between stops in the spring weather was a pleasure.

  12. 5 out of 5


    I did the Breaux Bridge walking tour with Whitney as our guide. She was awesome!! I had an amazing time, and the food was excellent. I will definitely be doing another one soon!!

  13. 5 out of 5


    As a native Louisianian, I LOVED this tour. Jay was a great tour guide, the food was delicious, and the historical facts were fun. Thoroughly enjoyed our food tour!

  14. 5 out of 5


    Excellent tour. Well worth the price.

  15. 5 out of 5


    This tour was fabulous! Great sampling of the best food in Lafayette. Jay, our guide was very knowledgeable and taught us about the area history as well. We traveled with a family member who uses a wheelchair and has other disabilities. Jay was very helpful getting him on and off the bus. All stops were accessible. This tour is well worth the money!

  16. 5 out of 5


    I loved the “Around the World” food tour & highly recommend it to everyone! It was FUN & delicious! I felt like I got MORE than my monies worth! I can’t wait to take the Cajun Food Tour next!!

  17. 5 out of 5


    This was a neat experience. Friendly service and great company. I enjoyed my evening completely. We went to 5 restaurants and I could not eat at one (way too spicy for me!). Great welcoming staff at all 5 restaurants.

  18. 5 out of 5


    This was a great activity for my lady’s adventure group. The food was fabulous, and our guide, Jay, was very knowledgeable of Acadian food & history. We learned a few things, even though we are from the area! I would recommend this tour to visitors and locals. We plan to do their “Around the World Taste Tour”.

  19. 5 out of 5


    On this tour, we sampled a delicious variety of Cajun food. Our tour guide, Jay, shared a wealth of information about the area, the food, & the culture. His personality was warm, welcoming, & humorous. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable day. This is a great adventure for both tourists & locals.

  20. 5 out of 5


    I booked this tour for a few friends who came in town from Texas. Little did I know that I would enjoy it just as much as they did. Marie is a phenomenal tour guide; so knowledgeable about our culture, history, and the food. We received top notch service at every place we visited. The food was amazing, the experience is a MUST, and the company on the bus was wonderful. This is a MUST do in Acadiana!

  21. 5 out of 5


    The tour was fun and educational. The food was a great combination of sweet and savory items that were just perfect to expeience. The food that we tasted at each stop was just enough to make you want to go back for more on a future visit. I highly recommend this tour; any age, anyone!

  22. 4 out of 5


    Gave this to my 4 sons and their wives as s Christmas gift. They chose to include me. Went on the tour Friday. May 26. Was great. Food was great. At first stop we all planned to come back forcrawfidg after the tour — but by end of tour no one could even think of eating. The choices of restaurants or food places were great– places you may not think of visiting. The tour guide (not Marie) was informative even for us who are locals. What a great way to entertain guests especially if they are from out of state/ country.

  23. 5 out of 5


    Had a visitor from Naples, Florida and wanted her to get a taste of Cajun food. Marie was very upbeat, entertaining, and had a wealth of educational information on Lafayette and Cajun history. Food was delicious. My 92 year old mother thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Thank you Marie!! Plan on more tours!!

  24. 5 out of 5


    We hosting a surprise birthday party for my Mother. Marie was so helpful, my mom and her friends had a GREAT time. Everyone said how good the tour was, although everyone was local,they all learned things about the area and got to taste some good food.


  25. 5 out of 5


    This was our first food tour ever and we will definitely be finding others to do when we visit a new location. Marie is so knowledgeable and has so much interesting information on a variety of topics to add to all the fun of tasting delicious Louisiana cuisine! A great way to experience the best of the best local food in small quantities, learn about the food, culture and the area. I would highly recommend going on this food tour; it is totally worth the time and money! Be sure to come hungry!

  26. 5 out of 5


    It doesn’t get any better than a Cajun Food Tour! I’ve been on a morning and afternoon tour and loved both of them! You get to eat some great food and our guide, Marie, was awesome! She educates and entertains you! A great experience to share with someone and the others on the tour!

  27. 5 out of 5


    Can I just say ditto to all the other reviews listed here? What a fabulous experience! The food, the history, Marie herself, the communication beforehand, timeliness. A+
    to the teacher turned tour operator!

  28. 5 out of 5


    loved the tour

  29. 5 out of 5


    this was my third tour with was as good as the first. I love to hear the history of the area and her jokes are not bad either.-I would recommend this tour to anyone local or from other areas.

  30. 5 out of 5


    Even for a local who has lived here all her life and been to every place Marie took us, it was an awesome time and experience. We went on this tour as my “birthday party” to try something different, it was a girls trip, and we all had a blast! We are planning a couples trip bc I have so many friends want to do it now! I would definitely recommend this all locals and tourists.

  31. 5 out of 5


    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed an informative tour with delicious food. Our group was a complete mix of visitors and locals and ages from 3? to 70. Strangers who had a good time together and a lot of fun. Marie has a talent for making everyone very comfortable and happy! We plan on taking this tour again!!

  32. 5 out of 5


    The Cajun food tour was amazing. In our group we had locals and out of towners. The out of towners loved that they got to try and learn about the culture, food(s), and history of the Lafayette area. The locals loved that they got to explore new restaurants and restaurants they’ve been to. They were introduced to new things on the menu at a restaurant they’ve been to a million times.

    If your a local or an out of towner this tour is great and Kid friendly. :)

    PS: Lots of food which is a plus.

    Thank you Marie for a great experience. Most definitely will come back for another tour and recommend you to all.

  33. 5 out of 5


    Great tour, great food and the tour guide was fantastic. Would do again.

  34. 5 out of 5


    My husband and I took this tour after reading the wonderful reviews it had on the internet. We were not disappointed! Ginger was our tour guide and she was delightful. I could have listened to her talk all day, with her heavy Cajun accent! Every place we went served us delicious food- and things I may never had ordered myself. It was a lovely experience and I would highly recommend it to all!

  35. 4 out of 5


    As with anything your first time expecting my wife and I were trying to guess just what we was getting into with this tour!We arrived at our pickup location and was timely picked up with two smiling face’s greeting us.We boarded and went right into a get to know each moment,it was great meeting others. We were drove around 6 places and we enjoyed each one, tasting various foods.Also bring your on cooler in your vehicle because at a few locations your able to buy food/ etc that may need cooled down.There is a cooler on the tour bus to hold your items.Would recommend this tour to family and friends!!

  36. 5 out of 5


    Over the years, we have taken more tours than we can count…including numerous foodie tours…this tour ranks in the Top-5! Marie’s knowledge of the area and it’s Cajun roots is truly top-notch, not to mention she’s a genuine story-teller…VERY entertaining! I highly recommend Cajun Food Tours, it’s a GREAT day-trip from NoLa, to boot!

  37. 5 out of 5


    We had so much fun on our tour!!! We visited 6 different places and the food was EXCELLENT! We really enjoyed learning about points of interest in the city and the background of the restaurants we visited. Everyone showed that Southern hospitality they are known for in South Louisiana. This is a MUST DO for anyone who will be in the Lafayette area.

  38. 5 out of 5


    Marie does a great job of explaining about the Cajun people, their culture and food. Her van is decorated like a living room to make you feel at home. We visited 6 places and at each the food was excellent and plentiful. She offers bottled water and you have the option to buy alcoholic beverages at some of the establishments(this was the morning tour). This was my first food tour and we had so much fun. I’m now hooked! My husband had a business meeting and had to leave after the 4th stop and Marie was very accommodating and dropped him off at our hotel.

  39. 5 out of 5


    We chose to take the Cajun Food Tour as our bridal luncheon for my daughter’s wedding. All thirteen of us had such an enjoyable time with Marie, our tour leader and driver, and our party. The trip around Lafayette was fun, informative, delicious, and memorable. The attractive, comfortable bus took us to a bakery, a new cafe, a cultural center, and three established restaurants on our midday experience where we enjoyed a sample of local Cajun delicacies. All were locally owned businesses, some with gift shops. We were greeted by the owners or managers. Marie, in her pleasant, upbeat way, entertained us with interesting narration about area history and a few additional landmarks, along with cute “Boudreaux and Thibodeaux” jokes. For a unique, tasty way to appreciate Lafayette, whether you are area natives (as we were) or visitors, try the Cajun Food Tour!

  40. 5 out of 5


    You are missing a lot if you miss this tour!! Marie is a wonderful guide…full of information and provides lots of laughs along the way. But most of all….the Food! At each stop we sampled delicious “Cajun food” from the popular boudin to the favorite bread pudding. Will definitely do this tour again!! Allons manger encore!!

  41. 5 out of 5


    My sister went on tour at the end of January. She raved about it so I decided to book a tour for March14,2016. I really enjoyed every minute. The food was delicious. Even though I have lived in Lafayette all my life, we went to places I had never been. The fellow passengers and the tour guide,Marie were wonderful. I will definitely be doing this again. Good job Marie!

  42. 5 out of 5


    My husband and I went on the Cajun Food Tour for my birthday in January. My grown children live in Lafayette, so I’ve already been to 4 of the 6 locations we visited on the tour, but that didn’t make my time any less enjoyable. We tried lots of different foods including boudin, cracklin’, seafood/crawfish pizza, alligator legs (so yummy…none of the group of 12 of us had any idea what we were eating), stuffed grilled cheese, shrimp po’boy, and bread pudding. You can bring a frozen daiquiri or a beer on board the bus, but there are opportunities for great drinks at several of the establishments you’ll visit. The locations change around a lot, and you won’t know where you are going until you arrive. That’s all part of the fun! Marie is a former teacher and has a passion for Lafayette and its food and culture, so you’ll learn a lot while having a great time. I highly recommend this tour for out-of-towners who really want to experience Cajun culture and for locals, too, so that they can find out where the REALLY good food spots are. Allons manger!!

  43. 5 out of 5


    Great fun! Great food! Fantastic guide! Outstanding service! This is worth doing again and again.

  44. 5 out of 5


    Being a local, I enjoyed going to restaurants that I had never been to and eating delicious foods that I wouldn’t have tried otherwise. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on this food tour!

  45. 5 out of 5


    I accompanied out-of-state guests on this wonderful food tour. The foods provided were authentic Cajun foods so unique to this part of Louisiana. It provided them with samples of many more foods then we could have provided them with during their short visit. We were worried that we would only get bites of food and would be hungry at the end of the tour. But to our surprise we were uncomfortably full as we exited the bus for the final time!!! I have lived here for 20 years, and even I learned something new about the Cajun culture.

  46. 5 out of 5


    Marie is an excellent tour guide! In fact, I’ve lived in Lafayette my entire life and was still able to see new sites, learn new things, and taste new and delicious foods. I found it pretty incredible that she was able to teach me about a couple of the places I’d been to many of times before. The best part of course was the food! It was extremely delicious and I had an excellent time all around! I definitely recommend this to all my friends & family!

  47. 5 out of 5


    Can’t say enough good things about Marie, the food and the fun we all had. We learned so much about the customs and rich history of the Cajun people. Even though we are all from Louisiana and some are even from the area, we learned some interesting facts that we hadn’t been aware of. We walked away with a greater appreciation of the people of this area and with a new list of the many new places to eat!

  48. 5 out of 5


    My wife and I from Broussard, La. and her parents from Stavanger, Norway have taken the Cajun Food Tour! We all give this activity an A+! The tours are informative, delicious and FUN! In spite of the fact that I live in Acadiana, I learned some history and ate at spots I had not yet enjoyed. Thumbs up all the way!

  49. 5 out of 5


    My husband, two friends and I took the food tour recently. Ginger was the guide and Marie was there for additional support and info. The 4 of us enjoyed the tour and making new friends with the other participants. When you take the tour wear comfy clothing due to the need for an expanding waist. I would take the tour again!

  50. 5 out of 5


    Loved, Loved! This was an adventure for 14 of my classmates and Marie was very patient with us even though we had whistles. The food was out of this world loved everyplace that we went. I have told many people about this and we are planning another tour October 24, 2015.

  51. 5 out of 5


    I have taken two tours with Cajun Food Tours now, one at 10:30 am with a dozen women, the other at 2:30 pm with my husband. I give this activity an A+! The tours are informative, delicious and FUN! In spite of the fact that I live in Lafayette, I learned some history and ate at spots I had not yet enjoyed. Thumbs up all the way!
