Description: New Orleans is so more than the French Quarter and we want to show you...
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.

Booked the Ninth Ward bike tour on a very cold and windy day in NOLA. We thought about canceling but since we just left 7' of snow we decided temps in the 40's were not horrible. Only two of us showed up for the tour and we are so glad we did. Nick is passionate about his neighborhood and we... More

The Ninth Ward bike trip was great, as we bravely ventured into variety of local neighbourhoods that were affected to varying degrees by Hurricane Katrina. Our fearless leader, Derek, was funny and informative, while also allowing some quiet time for reflection on some of the amazing aspects of this city. You get a real feel for the people and challenges... More

I really enjoyed this guided tour and a big reason for that was our guide Jeff who was just great. Jeff's love for the city really comes through on this tour and he is a wealth of information on all things NOLA. Book this tour without hesitation. You won't be disappointed.

It was a lot of fun. The tour guide took us out of the way places that people normally don't see on regular tours Good was delish and at places never would have gone too

Our guide, Nick was amazing! His knowledge of New Orleans history and in particular the importance of it's music to culture of the city was captivating. He obviously loved what he does and told his stories with such enthusiasm that I felt I was living a PBS documentary. Watch out Mr. Burns. Bicycling through the various neighborhoods was also a...

I had the best bike tour EVER in the lower 9th ward. Nick (that handsome devil) was an awesome tour guide. He had interacting facts. He even showed us where he lived. The highlight of the tour was his passion for the lower 9th ward restoration. He made me want to buy a house there. I truly love the tour... More

If you want to know the coolest sites and true culture of this awesome city instead of what the media portrays, you have to do this tour! My tour guide was so knowledgeable about current events in history of the area, and pretty funny too!

What a concept! Lunch on wheels! Pedal for twenty minutes, eat for twenty minutes, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat! The guide, Victor, was knowledgable about New Orleans cuisine, culture and history. He chose out of the way place that I wouldn't have gotten to on my own and every bite was delicious. Highly recommend it.

Jeff, the owner of this bike company, took the six of us to four different restaurants that specialize in a NOLA treat. We tried fried chicken, gumbo, et to feet (sp), BBQ SCRIMP, poor boys, and amazing buttermilk drops! We would have never had the opportunity to eat foods like this if we were on our own. The bike ride... More
