Bob gave us a very informative tour of New Orleans; along with lots of tips on things to do and see while in the Big Easy. It was like getting the true history from an insider's perspective without all the misleading media coverage; especially about Katrina. My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed Bob's straight forward demeanor and vast knowledge of... More

She called again to confirm, 2 weeks in advance, was told that they booked a group of 6, no longer have room for... More

This tour was a great way to see New Orleans. I was in town for a wedding and short on time, after researching the different tour options I chose Big Easy Bike Tours, mainly because of Bob's reputation. He met my friends and I near our hotel around 8AM and took us on a 3 1/2 hour tour of a... More

This is a really great tour. I have traveled with Bob twice - once with my wife and second time with old college friends. I haven't done other bike tours in New Orleans - but I doubt that any other tour would be as fun or thorough as Big Easy. This is the tour to take if you're looking for... More

I highly recommend this tour. Bob is intelligent, witty, and gives an informed view of New Orleans culture and history that's not found in many textbooks. This was at least 10 times more interesting than I thought it would be. He's also very well organized and the bikes are a great way to the the sights along Esplanade. If you're... More

This was my second time taking one of these bike tours with Bob. He is so knowledgeable. It's fun to ride around on the bikes and see the city this way. Plus, you learn alot and come away actually knowing something... Bob also made great restaurant recommendations and places to visit. Highly recommend!

We took a tour early on a sunday morning at 8-11 for 20 miles touring the city of new Orleans. Bob is very informative and gives tips about details in the city that you don't normally hear from tour books. You get a great view of streets you would not normally walk down on this tour. It is a longer... More

We loved the Esplanade Avenue of the Creoles tour that Bob gave on our recent trip to New Orleans. It was truly one of the highlights of our trip! Bob is very knowledgeable about the history of the city and shared so many interesting stories and bits of information . . . . we learned a lot and saw parts... More

We've cycled many cities in the USA and usually hire bikes and do our own tour, but we were thrilled we decided to go on Bob's 5 hour tour. He certainly knew his stuff and it was so nice to take a leisurely and informative tour. We had mixed group with some experienced riders and a few riders that needed... More

Start your trip with this bike tour. Bob delighted us with interesting facts and wonderful tips for seeing the city. From the cemeteries to the Treme neighborhood to the riverfront, Bob regaled us with stories and useful information. If you are interested in music, Bob excels in this area. Bob texted us early in the AM to offer us alternatives... More
