Hi, Paula. What would you like to know about this attraction? Hi, Paula. What would you like to know about this attraction? Mark, where are you from? Have you had Cajun food before? What made you think the food was going to be a full meal at each restaurant? I ask because the adult cost for the tour would barely have gotten one adult a full meal at one restaurant, not because it's expensive, because IT IS WORTH IT. As far as Cajun food, what I can promise you that what you got WAS real Cajun food. Unless you go to McDonald's in Lafayette, everything is Cajun food. I've lived and eaten out in New Orleans all of my life and visited Lafayette and eaten there more than once. I can pretty much promise you that what you experienced was worth every penny you spent; if the food didn't surprise you in a good way, it may be because what you were expecting was an unfair idea of what you actually ate. If you didn't like the flavor, that's not unusual at any new restaurant you visit. I'm sorry you felt disappointed, but to be fair, please look back on your memories of the tour and compare it to what you thought you were going to get, any literature about the tour and see what gave you the idea there was going to be a full meal at each stop. Trust me, if you had gotten a full meal at each stop, it would have cost you more than your entire trip and it STILL WOULD HAVE BEEN WORTH IT. Please rethink your experience and see if you don't think your review might deserve a little adjustment on a more positive side.

You can't possibly eat a full meal at every stop on a food tour. Think about time and stomach capacity. You would have to spend an entire day and use the old Roman feather trick after every stop. Compare it to a wine... More

Sorry, but your own ice chest isn't allowed, but the company has one on the bus in which you are invited to put your own refreshments and any perishables you might purchase on the tour.
