What You Can Expect

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.

My husband and I loved this tour! We got to see so much more than the French Quarter, learned a lot of history and were able to walk around a fantastic cemetery. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour! It gave me a really good sense of New Orleans beyond the French quarter. The bike riding wasn't taxing, although in retrospect we covered a lot of ground. I would recommend this tour to any one who is interested in learning more about the city. This tour doesn't cover the garden district, however, there is a separate tour that goes there.

Kathy was amazing!! So knowledgeable and personal. We did ride through the WORST storm ever but she never compromised our safety to get us back quickly...... we were 4 or more miles out when the clouds dumped! We will be telling everyone to take the Tour and hopefully have Kathy guide them through a wonderful trek of NOLA!!

Cathy was awesome! We had a fantastic time. Cathy was very friendly, thorough in describing historical facts, sharing her own experiences through Katrina, and showing us extra places and spending extra time. It was a fun and relaxing way to see the city on a beautiful day. We highly recommend this tour.

This trip and the guide - Kathryn - was a great way to get a view of the city - some history and enjoy the great outdoors. Our guide was knowledgeable and efficient with our time. The variety of what we saw - neighborhoods, business district, city park, cemetery - gave me a dose of new Orleans that no other tour would have provided. Well worth the cost, time and a little sun burn!

This was a fantastic way to see New Orleans up close! Area is delta flat so no hills! Tour director Danny was very informative and eager to share his love of the area. We were a group of 60 yr olds not nec. in the best of shape and had no problem with the 13.5 mile ride. We stopped frequently to view houses and city sites and drink the provided water. Was great!
