Description: Bike through the little seen parts of New Orleans with us and take a ride...
Bike through the little seen parts of New Orleans with us and take a ride through the rebirth of a historical neighborhood. 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.

Derek is personable and knowledgeable. His wit and playful intelligence is engaging. His roots in New Orleans are worn with pride and he allowed us a dignified insight into the Lower 9th Ward. I came away wanting to explore more....

This was the best thing we did in New Orleans. Our guide (Nick) was very personable and knowledgeable and knows people in the neighborhood. We saw places we probably never would have seen (like the fantastic House of Dance and Feathers) and learned a whole lot. Plus it was just plain fun to ride around the city. It was July... More

We took this tour yesterday and there are no words to say but it is a MUST DO if you are visiting New Orleans. It was very emotional to see all of the devastation but encouraging to see the rebuilding, improvements and the clean up. Our guide Derek was very knowledgable, funny and a great host. We learned a lot,... More

We read reviews about this bike tour and are so glad we were able to experience this neighborhood with Nick who is so knowledgeable about the people and the long road to recovery of this special area. He is passionate about telling the "real story" of the neighborhood and its people, not the story that we all know from TV... More

Having spent a few days in NOLA already we were keen to discover some more about the much mentioned Lower 9th Ward without going on a 'look out the window of the bus' disaster tour. We're so glad we found this tour. We actually got a private tour as we booked last minute and there weren't any other takers, which... More

Due to the rest of the group canceling at last minute (too hungover they said... Can't imagine that in NOLA) I ended up the only taker on the morning. Derek was delightful and even though we shortened things as there was only me was still a fabulous way to see a party of the city is otherwise know nothing about.... More

We were looking for a perspective of the impact of Katrina on the local community together with an insight to the local way. An experience rather than the tourist thing... Our guide Nick delivered!! From a cruise through the neighbourhood, meander along the levy top, history, Mr Lewis' museum and tribute to Mardi Gras and 2nd line parades, to the... More

It is difficult to choose one highlight in a city filled with so many highlights,but this bike tour through the Lower Ninth Ward is surely it! And, considering I have already been here for one month, it says a lot. Our wonderfully engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining guide - Reecy - has established an interpersonal relationship with members of the community.... More
