New Orleans Bike Tour

New Orleans Bike Tour

Begin your morning or afternoon bike tour in the French Quarter, where you’ll meet your guide, get a safety lesson, and be fit with a 3‐speed bike and helmet before setting off on an exciting city ride.

For the next several hours, enjoy picturesque urban and pastoral views as your expert guide takes you through seven atmospheric New Orleans neighborhoods, each with its own distinct mark in the city’s historic development. Cruise along the Mississippi River for a look at paddlewheel steamboats drifting on the water, then head back through the timeless French Quarter en route to the hip Faubourg 
Marigny, best known for its great live music.     

Next, head north along Esplanade Avenue, soaking up the opulence of stately Creole mansions and cottages along the boulevard. Your route leads directly through St Louis Cemetery No 3 – where you can hop off your bike and meander through some macabre and magnificent tombs – and then on to City Park. As you admire the lush beauty of the park, learn a bit of its history as the former site of Louis Allard plantation and a favorite location for dueling amongst the New Orleans’ gentry in the 18th century. 

Your return trip winds through three other diverse urban neighborhoods: Bayou St John, Mid‐City and Treme. In each borough, you’ll have a chance to stop, ask questions of your guide and snap some memorable photos.

Your 3.5‐hour ride ends at the starting point in the French Quarter.

Loved our tour of the city. Our tour guide was Kathy and she did an amazing job. We were able to see so much in our 3 to 4 hour tour. All the while her explaining much of the history. Rode thru many of the neighborhoods, cemetery and sculpture gardens. I would highly recommend this tour

Danny was our tour guide - he was excellent! On the day we went it was raining, but the ride went on! We were provided with complementary water and rain ponchos to make our ride comfortable. Danny was very informative and kept the group together making sure no one missed out on the points of interest. We had our 10 year old daughter together and she was able to keep up, so it was family friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.

Jon was awesome! Informative, fun, gracious, knowledgeable. Great biking pace, and excellent bike safety/communication. I feel as though I experienced a different side of New Orleans with this tour. Five neighborhoods, the City Park with its beautiful Oak Trees, Congo Square, bayou St John area ... Loved all of it. The stop at Morning Call was a great break and beignet treT. I'm especially grateful that the company honored my booking as I was the only person on the tour. A great experience and highly recommend!!

The New Orleans Bike Tour was our favorite part of our long weekend getaway to New Orleans. My boyfriend and I went in late September. The Bike Tours company had high reviews and we like biking so we gave it a try.

The location was convenient, as it was in the French Quarter. Our tour guide Danny really made the New Orleans Bike Tour special. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the historic sites, the various neighborhoods, city politics, and fun things to do around the city. He checked in frequently to make sure he wasn't bombarding us with information but we were so interested in everything he told us that we often asked him to tell us more. This was an excellent way to see New Orleans, understand the history, and get a workout in without it being overly strenuous. Our group was small, only four people excluding Danny, which we loved. It felt intimate. We could all talk and take pictures.

Again, this was the highlight of our trip. We believe Danny made it extra special -- ask for him to be your tour guide!
