What You Can Expect

New Orleans French Quarter Segway Tour

Touring Around the Treme Neighborhood

Meet your group and guide on Decatur Street for a 30-minute orientation session and safety instruction. Once you feel comfortable on your Segway, it’s time to hit the road!

Follow your guide through the French Quarter, New Orleans’ cultural hub and the oldest part of the city. Admire the French and Spanish colonial architecture and see buildings dating all the way back to the 1700s.

Cruise along the Mississippi River waterfront and learn why the French chose to colonize New Orleans. Enjoy sweeping views of the West Bank and catch a glimpse of a steamship paddling by.

Head to Louis Armstrong Park, the birthplace of jazz. Explore the beautifully manicured park, a lesser-known spot among tourists, and enjoy the green landscape dotted with fountains.

Visit Jackson Square, the center of the city when the French first settled here. Surrounding the square are some of the oldest buildings in the US including St Louis Cathedral, the oldest operating Catholic Church in the US, and the Cabildo, where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803.

On bustling Bourbon Street, see the favorite hangout spot of the infamous French pirate Jean Lafitte. Then, stop by the Old US Mint, a historic landmark that now houses part of the Louisiana State Museum.

Choose the 6pm evening departure for a New Orleans sunset treat.

Extended 3-Hour Tour:
If you choose the 3-hour tour, you’ll also visit Tremé, made popular by the post-Hurricane Katrina HBO series. This neighborhood was home to Caucasians, Haitians, Creoles and ‘free people of color’ in the late 18th century, and helped give rise to jazz culture.

You’ll also stop by Congo Square, a section of Armstrong Park that was once a vibrant market place where slaves and free people of color could trade, exchange news and play music on Sundays.

Return to Decatur Street to conclude your tour.

This was so much fun and so informative for our family. Our tour guide Jon was fantastic and I highly recommend this on your first day or visit to the French Quarter.

It was a great tour and our guide Steven was great and very animated. He gave us a lot of history about the city. We always find Segway tours are a good way of having fun and getting around locations rather than walking or being cooped up on a bus.

This tour was awesome. Our guide Katey was very knowledgable and entertaining. Would recommend this tour and also would take it again.

Great time! Was with a large group of friends and our guide was very attentive to our mood and interests throughout the tour!

Great way to see the city, learn the history, and no crowded boring bus. My 14 year old hard to please son, and a friend of his really had a good time, so perfect for teens too. Great for anyone, but you must at least have the basic balance skill to ride a bicycle. Not hard to do and they teach you how.

This was the first tour we took once we got to town. It was the perfect introduction to the French Quarter and took us to places we wouldn't of seen otherwise Treme. We'd never been on a Segway before and felt a little scared, but within 2 minutes of training in their office, you feel like a pro. They are very stable and so much fun! Wish you could rent them without being on a tour.

Was awesome! Segways were easy to pick up and learn and was great fun. We want one now. The tour was safe, detailed, engaging and fun. The guide had lots of local suggestions - we tried a bunch of her food places and they were great.

Was an excellent way to see a lot of the town without having to walk for miles. Totally enjoyed this and would definitely do again. Jason was a great guide and the 3-hr tour was a nice length. I had trouble knowing where exactly we would be going...we explored everything between Canal St and Esplanada St and from Louis Armstrong and a little beyond that all the way down to the Mississippi River. Wish we could've headed to other side of Canal St to Garden district but i guess that's too far.

Great way to see the city! We have two fourteen year old boys and they both loved it!
