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.

This tour is Awesome! Segways are soooo easy to learn and soooo much fun to ride. I'm 70, and I had no trouble at all. The training session in their shop before starting the tour is all you need, and you you'll be good to go. This segway tour is the absolute best way to *see* and learn about the French Quarter. Our guide was super-nice and super-informative. You should try it! I promise you'll love it!

What a fun way to do a NOLA tour! We were given expert training on how to ride a Segway before we ever left the shop. Tour was great and informative. We were also given free time playing with the Segways in Louis Armstrong Park. Our guide was very informative about all the different spots we stopped. He not only covered the history but current events as well.

Even though it was lightly raining, the tour went on anyway. What a great time. They furnished us with rain ponchos and have us training on the proper operation of the Segway. We rode for several miles, saw interesting sites, neighborhoods, and several off the beaten path areas. Would highly recommend
