The process of renting was painless and very affordable. I would rent again. It is much easier to get around The French Quarter on a bicycle. On hot days you will stay cooler. I was able to see more in shorter period of time. Plenty of bikes to choose from

We had a wonderful rental with The American Bicycle Rental Company. My son and I each rented a bike and were walked through all of the terms of the rental clearly. We were given good information on how to keep our bikes secure throughout the city, and things to look out for that we may not have even thought of.... More

Nice bikes and helpful staff, definitely made getting around the city much easier. Prices are comparable to most and a military discount makes it cheaper!

We rented bikes for one day and it was as easy as I've ever experienced. The bikes they carry are great and they provide a lock and basket and map. We took it from their shop all the way to City Park on Esplanade. The ride is beautiful and the homes on that street are incredible. The bike lane is... More

Friendly employees, clear explanations, prices in the average, not very confident with Holland-style bikes

Thank you for your review Marianna but please forgive me I'm having trouble understanding your 3 star rating of our company. You loved our service, our employees, and our prices are average being that we have the only custom ordered fleet of American made bikes anywhere close to our city, but you gave us a 3 star based on the...

Great people, excellent equipment. I really appreciated the willingness to explain the bike routes and how to the main sites the city had to offer. No better way to see New Orleans.

The only thing is that it was a little pricey vs NYC, but otherwise service was great. The bikes were adequate as well.

Great bikes, good price! The staff at the shop were informed of areas to go and not to go. Had an after hour drop off if needed. Good time!

I went to the American Bicycle on a fairly busy day in June, but the woman there was taking care of everyone, and doing it well. We all got out the door pretty quickly, with maps and good instructions, and good bikes. I had a great time on my own, biking around, using the map and taking the woman's advice.... More
