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.

This tour was great! After 25 to 30 minutes of Segway instruction and a little practice, we were off to see the city. We crisscrossed our way across the French Quarter, from the river to the Treme neighborhood. The guide was a native who was both friendly and knowledgeable. A definate must.
