Baton Rouge is a hotspot for foodie tours, which are gaining popularity at a fast rate. “Food tours are back, and we now have two different companies putting them on,” says Visit Baton Rouge’s Erica Sweeney Glory.
All About Baton Rouge Food Tours transports guests in climate-controlled mini-buses to four to six stops with diverse tastes—from salty and savory to sweet. The tours provide meet-and-greets with local merchants and chefs, and participants can experience the culinary culture of the city as well as its history, local music, and art scenes.
Enjoy Baton Rouge Walking Tours offers short walks between five local restaurants for groups of six to 12. With special restaurateur presentations and history talks, the tours feature Creole, Cajun, seafood, new American, and unique-to-Louisiana flavors—all while accommodating dietary needs.
