Owner description: New Orleans is so more than the French Quarter and we want to show you what most visitors don't get to experience. The heart of our city is seen through its many other historic neighborhoods, such as the beautiful Faubourg Marigny; and there is no better way to explore them than with New Orleans' original bicycle tour company. Join us as we take you for a bike ride around the old Creole neighborhoods and tell you the stories of the New Orleans that most tourists miss. The ride is relaxed, with plenty of time to ask questions, and a stop along the way at a neighborhood bar where you can find out all you want about local life while drinking a delicious Bloody Mary, if you like. For those who want to delve a little deeper, we offer a tasty Neighborhood Culinary Tour and a Historic Drinking Tour (where you get to indulge as you learn), all travelling through our streets like the locals do, on easy to ride classic cruiser bicycles.

We went on the 9th Ward bike tour on a recent trip to Nola and had SO MUCH fun. Our tour guide Derek was entertaining and informative. The pace was fast enough not to get bored, but not too fast as to drop my road-Abita picked up at a bar stop along the way. It was fascinating for me to... More

We did the Lower 9th Ward bike tour with these guys on December 26th and can't say enough good things about them. It was informative, fun, respectful of the locals and just an all-round incredible experience. Our tour guide Jeff was absolutely brilliant - so much local knowledge and genuine love and passion for the area. The bikes were in... More

Did the combined bike and kayak tour. Nice ride on the bikes down some interesting streets. Jeff added interesting narrative. Biking is a nice way to see parts of NOLA outside the French Quarter.

We had an awesome Creole Tour with our guide Jeff, who was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. We loved that this tour was so accessible for people of any skill type. Some of our favorites was stopping in Jeff's house to see what a typical New Orlean's style house was like, and stopping at a bar outside of the Marigny... More

These people are awesome,did both the lower ninth and food tours and rate both 110 out of 100. Do not do a plastic tour when in Nola please contact these guys for memorable tour. Especially enjoyed Victors charm and razor sharp wit. I will not hesitate to use again when I go back.

We took Nick's Lower 9th Ward bike tour just before Christmas and had a terrific experience. Nick is knowledgeable and fun, and the tour is fascinating -- we came away with a far greater understanding of this admirable, resilient community before and after the storm. The po-boys were delicious, and I especially loved our visit to Mr. Lewis' House of... More

We just got back from taking the Creole Tour with out tour guide Jeff. We had a great time. Very informative and delivered with wit. We went to parts of the city that I wouldn't have ventured to otherwise. It was $50 well spent and I would recommend it to anyone.

This was our favorite activity in New Orleans. We were able to explore many neighborhoods at a relaxed pace. There is something about traveling by bicycle that makes you feel much more connected. Our tour guide bubbled over with his knowledge of history, jazz and rock n roll and I could have continued the tour for hours longer.

I was excited for the bike tour because of all the great reviews, but I was actually very disappointed. I think it was more to do with our tour guide, though. He did show us some cool places I never would have gone to otherwise, but he seemed to lack direction. He often asked if there was anything we wanted... More
