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.

Jon was an excellent guide. Even though the first parade of Mardi gras was that evening he still gave us an excellent tour of wonderful Nola. Lot's of history and he was very good on picking up on the kind of stuff we like to learn more about.

Cathy our tour guide was fantastic!!! She really knew the area and was very attentive to all our needs! She knew all the answers to our questions and showed us short-cuts thru the French Quarter. Also, she recommended places to come back to which we found very helpful. Great way to visit outside the French Quater and we would highly recommend Cathy and the Bull Frog Tours!!!

Steve was an informative and hospitable tour guide. He was prepared in every aspect with great bikes, first aid kit, water and reflective vests. The tour was broad enough to understand NOLA to a level most people don and #39;t experience. Highly recommended!

My wife and I 57 and 59 Went on 3 pm bike tour with Chad as the guide. Chad was extremely knowledgeable and informative, we learned a lot of cool things we never would have on our own. Biking, is the way to go, you can cover a lot in 3 hours. Real leisurely ride, but we kept moving, you're in the city so you have to pay attention and have some common sense. last 45 minutes in Bayou St John, Treme, and French Quarter was after the sun went down, Bikes had lights, we had a great time going through the French quarter. I would highly recommend this tour, ask for Chad

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.
