Small Group Culinary Tours Featuring The Very Best in Food, Wine and Sightseeing

Here's what they're saying about Wining and Dining In The Big Easy:

"We just returned from New Orleans on a tour put together by Mark Spivak. He took care of everything. We stayed in one of the nicest hotels in the French Quarter. Mark did a great job of picking the restaurants and cocktail bars, and gave us an agenda beforehand so we could go online and research them.

"The food was amazing, and Mark personally selected the wines. He even arranged our sightseeing tours and escorted us to the pickup points. All in all, a wonderful experience and a great trip---I would highly recommend his tours."

Sue and Don Rechil, Ontario, Canada

"Nadine and I want to thank you for hosting our recent culinary tour of New Orleans. The choice of hotel and restaurants was excellent, and the dinners were fine dining at its best. The tours you arranged gave us a chance to learn about the city and get ready for the next restaurant. We particularly enjoyed being in the center of the city, which allowed us to walk a lot and explore. Your concept is a great one, and we look forward to participating in a future tour."

Graham and Nadine Nichols, Toronto, Canada
