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 among 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 ride ends at the starting point in the French Quarter.
This tour was awesome! The tour guide was super accommodating and fun. We covered a lot of interesting ground and had rest stops to eat, take photos, and enjoy the scenery. The bikes were a pleasure to ride. Chuck was the BEST!
We got to see a lot of the city in a short time. Pace was good and guide was knowledgeable. We even went to dinner the next night at one of restaurants the tour took us past. I would suggest bringing a small snack like granola bar or trail mix just to give a boost for the last few miles.
My husband Darrin and I really enjoyed the bike tour through the French Quarter and surrounding areas. Our guide was personable and knowledgeable about the area and rich history and we had a wonderful time. We will definitely be repeat customers we return to New Orleans and also take the Garden District bike tour. Thank you!
What a perfect way to see New Orleans, the French Quarter and the City Park areas. Our group had an exception time. I had not ridden a bike in 30 years -- but it's true what they say, it's like getting back on a bike, it all comes back to you. If you have 3 hours to spare, and you want to do more than walk around NOLA, hope on a tour and enjoy your day.
