What You Can Expect

New Orleans French Quarter Segway Tour

Touring Around the Treme Neighborhood

Your tour begins on Decatur Street in the French Quarter with a 30‐minute training in the basics of Segway use. Once you’ve got your bearings on the electric two‐wheeler, you’ll take off on a whirlwind adventure with your expert guide.

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. 

Itinerary

Extended 3‐Hour Tour:

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.

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.
Highly recommended.

Just a terrific time had by all 5 of us. Jon was informative and entertaining. Just a great mix of humor and history. Gave us time to grab coffee at a great neighborhood spot as well as buzz around an empty parking lot. I thought it might be tough to navigate the bumpy, congested roads but Jon guided us well. Great time.

This tour was awesome. Rod is a great guy and a great guide. He gave us so much information about NOLA. I would highly recommend doing this tour first thing so you can get a good grasp of whats in the French Quarter. After the tour, I couldn't wait to go out and explore since I knew where I wanted to go. I wish they offered more tours because everyday my son wanted to Segway Let's go segway again today hey, let's segway again today. It was almost tempting to do the same tour twice. LOL!

We had never ridden segways before. A little nervous at first, but pretty easy to catch on. I am 58 and my husband is 61, so if we can do it probably anybody can. This was my husbands favorite activity we did all week.We will do this again in other cities if available.
