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. « less

We recently went on a culinary bike tour of the city with Cassandra. She did a great job bringing us to where locals go for the best food. We went to a Liuzza's (for the best Gumbo and Crawfish Etouffe), the Parkway (for Po-Boys) and Angela Brocato's (for ice cream and cannoli). The biking was easy and the bikes were... More

I went on the Creole bike tour with Keith. Fantastic tour! Bikes in great shape, perfectly acommodating company. Keith was incredibly knowledgeable about the history, culture, current events of the town. He lives it and he loves it and it comes across on the tour. He gets you out of the part n where most visitors spend most of their... More

What a great way to learn about New Orleans 9th Ward. Nick did a great job on the tour. He was friendly, funny, and informative. Got to learn a lot while having gun. The bike ride was easy and could be done with moderate bike experience. No need to get on your professional bike gear. Just put on some comfortable... More

Took the tour with Nick and highly recommend it! We had a fantastic time and explored so many areas of the city that we would most likely not have ventured to otherwise. Exciting way to learn a bit about some history in New Orleans! The biking was easy and a basket with water was provided. We traveled to various parks,... More

This bike tour starts near Frenchmen St, about a 15 minute walk from Bourbon St. The bikes are cruiser bikes where you stop the bike by pedaling backwards. The bikes are outfitted with decently sized baskets and everyone gets a bottle of water for the ride. There is a restroom to use at the store front. Very clean. We did... More

What a great way to see and taste New Orleans. Cassidy was a fantastic tour guide, full of great stories and he took us to some wonderful restaurants for many culinary delights. The ride was easy, in fact I wish we burned up a few more calories on the bikes because we certainly ate a lot. The bikes were in... More

Remember those potholes, jutting concrete slabs, and missing/broken bricks you constantly dodge walking around the French quarter? Well, now you get to maneuver a well-used beach cruiser around them, or if you miscalculate -- through them. As good as this tour is (it is decent), prep your butt for soreness! As a bonus, you get to be left behind (dodging... More

One of the main things we planned to do whilst on holiday in New Orleans was take a bike tour. Whilst researching online the one that stood out from the beginning was the Ninth Ward Rebirth Bike Tour. It sounded interesting and had 100% great reviews. Prior to the visit we booked the tour via email correspondence and we arrived... More

We highly recommend taking a bike tour with this group. My husband and I took two very different tours with two different guides. Both tours were fantastic! Our guides were very knowledgeable - you could tell they were very passionate about NOLA. We saw places we never would have on our own. You do not have to be an experienced... More

It was unseasonably cold on the day we were supposed to take our tour, but COC was extremely accommodating in rescheduling us so we didn't have to freeze! The weather took a turn for the better on our newly scheduled date and we really enjoyed the ride. Keith was our tour guide and he did a great job. I loved... More
