What You Can Expect
Explore the French Quarter, New Orleans’ timeless cultural center. Admire the French and Spanish Colonial architecture, and note intricate detail and metalwork that adorns the historic buildings, some dating back more than three centuries. Glide along the Mississippi River waterfront while your local guide offers facts on New Orleans’ French colonial history. Mingle with locals, catch snapshot views of the West Bank, and watch picturesque steamships paddle by.
Then you’ll leave the riverside to explore Jackson Square, the colonial city center, and Louis Armstrong Park. As you cruise through Jackson Square, check out the open‐air art vendors and admire the age‐old buildings surrounding Jackson Square – including St Louis Cathedral and the Cabildo, where the Robert Livingston and James Monroe signed the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.
At the edge of the Tremé‐Lafitte neighborhood, Louis Armstrong Park – the birthplace of jazz – offers a lovely ride through a manicured park, adorned with beautiful fountains, bridges and tributary statues to the city’s rich musical icons.
Your 2‐hour tour ends with a ride down infamous Bourbon Street, a visitor haunt since the days of French smuggler Jean Lafitte, and a visit to the Old US Mint.
The 3‐hour extended tour will include a stop at Congo Square in Louis Armstrong Park, an important site where slaves and free people meet on Sunday to openly trade, socialize, play music and dance. Then continue to the famous Tremé neighborhood, known historically as a rich cultural melting pot and jazz hotspot, and more recently as the setting for the popular HBO series Tremé. Your tour returns to the starting point on Decatur Street.
This tour was a BLAST!!! We had never been on Segway's before and we were a little nervous - but they taught us well and we had a fabulous time! Our guide JON was great!!!
Kathy was amazing! We had so much fun! We saw so many things and learned so much history!
Very enjoyable experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone especially if you want to see all of New Orleans outside of the typical places. Well worth it!
Awesome! Amazing! Spectacular! Everyone should try this, don and #39;t think you and #39;re too old (we and #39;re 65+), and don and #39;t be afraid. It just takes a couple minutes to get the hang of it - and so worth it. So much fun!! And Steven -our tour guide - great teacher, and very entertaining!!
Steve was the best, most accommodating guide. He talked us through and gave quite a bit of history about the town. None of my family had been on segways before and he gently nudged us until we built our confidence. Definitely would use this service again!!! Favorite part of our trip.
Shorty United States of ...
Wonderful! Everyone in our group had previously been on Segways, so we took to the streets right away. Perspective customer's should be advised that your are sharing the road with cars and trucks most of the time. Amber, our fun, knowledgeable guide, was absolutely terrific.
Excellent tour, great way to see a lot of the city quickly. Informative and fun at the same time, everyone should take a segway tour!
great time and what a way to see the city - - - my wife and I have done about 6 segway tours, but it was more fun seeing our daughter and son-in-law on a segway for the first time. will always look for a tour every where we go.
We were somewhat hesitant about using the Segway, but once we got out onto the streets, we loved it. Great way to get around the French Quarter and more. Our guide was very good as well. Knowledgeable and courteous. I would highly recommend this tour.
Cathy was a fabulous guide. Spoke clearly about history, was very informative. She was also very helpful with taking pics. Segways are the best way to see a large area in a short amount of time.
