Where are we going today?
Yum....can you smell something cooking? We think WE can - it must be the Cajun Food Tours!
These amazingly delicious 3 hour tours (And sometimes 4) will take you on their customized tour bus, and indulge you in some of the most amazing flavors of the area. Fit for 14 people at a time (so no big groups here!) you will stop at 6 food tasting jaunts around the lovely Lafayette Paris.
Not only will you be introduced to the foods of the area, but also the culture and history. It's an amazing part of Louisiana!
Have you ever tried fresh gulf seafood? Then you're in for a treat! Have you ever tried boudin & cracklins? No? Then you're in for a treat! Some of the incredibly tasty places that you will be visiting with the Cajun Food Tours include the very naught Cajun Market Donut, and the Hook & Boil - which as the name suggests, is delicious seafood!
Seafood and steak? Don't mind if we do at Don's Seafood & Steakhouse, and you can't have a Cajun food tour without a mean pie and ice cream! From Drive-Ins, to Old Tyme Grocery stores, to bakerys and markets, you will experience the best and tastiest (and most authentically Cajun!) foods of Louisiana.
Our stomachs are rumbling just thinking about it!
Don't worry though if you're not good with spice and think Cajun food is all heat - it's not! It's all about FLAVOR, and with the seasonings you get some amazing flavors, but that doesn't mean it's loaded with spice.
What's also fun about Cajun Food Tours is they don't give you an itinerary. They want to surprise you, and the best way to do it is to let them do all the hard work - you just sit back, relax, and get those stomachs ready!

I have been on many tours around the country and this is hands down one of the best. You experience the best food Louisiana has to offer while learning the fascinating history of the Lafayette/Acadiana area - and have so much fun!
Will be doing this tour again and will highly recommend to anyone. Great for all ages.

One of the most fun ways to spend about four hours in Lafayette.
