What You Can Expect
Many say that the history of New Orleans can be traced through its neighborhoods, so your tour takes in seven of its most atmospheric boroughs to help you understand the different eras in New Orleans’ development. Cycle along the banks of the Mississippi River where the city was born, wind your way through the French Quarter, and pass in to the bohemian neighborhood of Fabourge Marigny.
Get a feel for New Orleans’ 19th-century swagger as you pass along Esplanade Avenue, home to mansions built by the city’s founders. After cruising around the leafy streets of the upmarket neighborhood, take a break in St Louis Cemetery 3 to see its fairgrounds as well as some impressive marble tombs.
Wind your way around the landscapes gardens of City Park to start heading back toward the French Quarter, passing through three more exciting city neighborhoods: Bayou St John, Mid-City and Treme. After 3.5 hours of exploring the city and learning about its history, return to the start point where your bike tour finishes.
This tour was AMAZING!!! Our guide, Sarah was so knowledgeable. She holds a masters degree in NO history and since we were the only ones on the tour - she was able to customize the tour and spend extra time on the areas we were interested in. This tour was the hi-lite of our entire trip!!! You must experience this for yourself.
This tour was the highlight of my trip to New Orleans. I had been to New Orleans a few times in the past and was looking for a different type of experience. The 3-hour bike tour provided it with flying colors. The bike ride itself was not strenuous. The 3-speed bikes provided for the tour were excellent for the flat terrain and reasonable speeds on the tour. Our guide was excellent. She had grown up in New Orleans and had a Masters degree in history. We saw areas of the city and received information that were totally new even though I had been in N.O. at least 4 times in the past.
I am a 72-year old male in reasonable shape.
I would also comment that I took both the Segway Tour and the Bike Tour on different days and there was a minimum of tour overlap. Even though we started at the same spot and touched on the French Quarter on both tours, they were very different.
