Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your morning or afternoon bike tour in the French Quarter, where you meet your guide, get a safety lesson, and are 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 atmospheric New Orleans neighborhoods, each with its own distinct mark in the city’s historical 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 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.

We were extremely pleased with our bike tour. There were only two of us, so it was like a private tour. We got to see everything that was promised plus some sites we didn't know we would get to see: we were only walking the rest of the days and the Degas House and Sculpture Garden at City Park were so appreciated. Otherwise, we probably wouldn't have had transportation to see them.

I would highly recommend this tour as the ride through New Orleans is lovely. We went through the famous French Quarter, Migney and several other neighbourhoods. Stopped at Jackson Square, a cemetry & a beautiful park larger than central park in New York The ride was easy with no hills so even a novice rider could manage this gentle ride of approximately 20 - 25 kms. I would rate this ride 5 stars if it wasn't for the guide who was very informative and told us interesting facts along the way, but to me in particular was very rude. As an example when we were pulling up to stop at a landmark he asked all 10 riders to park in two's behind one another and my partner and I did so, however another rider decided to park beside us but he didn't see who pulled up last and went off at me saying he had serious concerned about my maths. Then when I proceeded to go to the back of the line to form a pair with someone else he shouted where do you think your going. It was very humiliating and it then appeared he had a complete dislike for me and singled me out a few more times. This really spoilt the overall experience for me. Upon our return he handed out icy poles to the group but you guessed it, he managed to bypass me. Hence my partner and I did not give him a tip because we only tip good service and his attitude towards me was appalling. The tour guides name was John.
