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

My husband and I took the Creole New Orleans tour. It was fantastic. We have taken 3 tours with 3 different tour companies and this was our favorite. Cassady was our tour guide and he was very knowledgable. It felt like we were riding with a friend. It's one thing to see an area while driving in a car, but... More

My husband and I are foodies, and we read about this tour in Southern Living magazine. Our guide, Cassandra, was amazing! We were able to sample dishes at 4 amazing restaurants (Bennachins, Elizabeths, The Joint, and The Meltdown) spanning 3 different neighborhoods (French Quarter, Marigny, and Bywater). It was definitely the highlight of our trip! The tour is an absolute... More

We opted to go on a cuisine tour and loved it. If anyone in your party is dying to try certain dishes, please let the guide know and he/she will tailor it to your tour. This tour visits little known restaurants that the locals go to in areas of town that most tourists wouldn't visit. So it was a double... More

We did two tours on our last trip to NOLA and they were both great! I had done the Ninth Ward Rebirth tour before with some friends and was so impressed I wanted to take my husband on it. It's a great education and going to the House of Dance and Feathers is a treat all of it's own (especially... More

After researching different foodie tour options in New Orleans, we decided on the Confederacy of Cruisers tour. The bikes were comfortable and easy to ride. First, we went to an African restaurant called Bennachin in the French Quarter. They served a yummy spinach dish and a plantain dish. There was plenty for everyone. Next we went to a restaurant called... More

I took the 9th ward Rebirth Tour a on a very hot June day. It was definitely worth braving the heat for and was one of the top highlights of my trip to New Orleans. The bikes were comfortable and easy to ride and the ground covered is flat so you don’t need to have a high level of fitness... More

We are already planning our trip back to NOLA and we will definitely be taking another tour. Our guide Keith was amazing! We learned so much and in a fun way.

Never felt compelled to do a review before, but I really enjoyed this tour. Learnt a lot about the history of New Orleans from our tour guide Nick. Especially enjoyed the music history content. It is clear that Nick knows his stuff. You feel like you're off the beaten track and are exposed to the grass roots of New Orleans.... More
