See not only the damage from Hurrican Katrina, but the uplifting rebuilding; and more importantly, why the neighborhood needed to survive. We'll visit the levee, learn about the musical culture, and meet Ronald Lewis, local historian and curator of the House of Dance and Feathers. Definitely an unforgettable day. « less

This bike tour takes you through the Ninth Ward. Here you get to see some of the effects from Katrina and the work still in process. Derek Wood was our tour guide. He is a native of the area, and is able to explain what you are viewing. If you can only do one tour, this is the one to... 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

This was such an amazing way to learn about and understand what happened to the Lower Ninth Ward during and following Katrina. Our guide was Nick, who did a great job explaining the history, geography, culture and music to us. I had done lots of reading about Katrina, but there is no substitute for actually being in the area and... More

I did this tour with two friends and we all had a GREAT time. Derrick was a super tour guide, really knew his history and made it fun. Lunch was good and meeting Ronald Lewis and seeing the House of Dance and Feathers was such a treat. I could have asked him questions all day, there is so much to... More

Could not ask for a better experience! We saw parts of the city that a tourist would never get to see without such a great guide like Derek. I haven't been on a bike in awhile but never once was an issue, nobody in my group fell behind and made new friends on the way. I took more pictures in... More

My partner and I went on this tour Jan 2014. Amazing guide Derick lead the way through areas that we would have never have gone on by foot or bus. He lead our group through local neighborhoods and told us many interesting things. Our guide had studied New Orleans History and was fantastic at his job. He answered all our... More

I had an amazing time with Derek. I visited NOLA in September and it was wicked hot. I showed up and a tan handsome guy was ready to take me around his neighborhood. As a born and raised local who is studying at Tulane, Derek imparted wisdom that only someone who knew his stuff could. He was charming and funny... More

The history and culture shared by Derek of the area made this tour fascinating and the ability to roll along on our bicycles made it fun. New Orleans is like another world and this tour really felt like we were getting an opportunity to see a side of the City that we would not otherwise visit. Really enjoyed the stop... More

Derek runs a very informative, fun and interesting bike tour through this amazing area showing the determination of the people of the area to rebuild their neighbourhood that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina! He has just received an award from the National Geographic for his tours that help in the recovery of the area.
