Owner description: 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.

“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We went out on the Creole tour with Cassidy. Toured the Marigny, Bywater, and Treme neighborhoods, had a delicious bloody Mary at a dive bar (sorry I couldn't remember the name) and learned a ton about the history of this city we love. Cassidy (sorry if I am spelling his name wrong) our guide, was a wealth of information, both historical and local, was an energetic and entertaining guide and kept us all safe from being run over. Both my wife and I would definitely recommend this bike tour to anyone wanting to see unique neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter. By the time I post this Cassidy might have become the father of a brand new baby girl. Congratulations! Thanks for a great morning.

“Great group activity; Fun, interesting, learned and saw a lot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I've found bike tours to be a great way to see and learn a lot about a city in a short time, and this was no exception. I had a group of seven, and we had a blast cruising on our cruisers. Jeff, our tour guide, was great and very accommodating (we wanted to stop at a few out of the way places). One of the highlights of our weekend in NO. As a biker, I really appreciated the fact they took the time to fit the bikes to each person in our group. Highly recommended.

“Culinary Goodness...Biking too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

My Mom (70) and I enjoyed an afternoon with Cassandra (guide) and an interesting crew of 6 other NOLA visitors on the Culinary Bike Tour...I'm still full! This tour does not disappoint, absolutely fantastic! I always like to find 'off the beaten' path types of activities and to combine cruiser biking with true local dining is a match made in, well, Cycling Foodie Heaven!

The tour is 3 - 4 hours long, winds through neighborhoods a 'typical tourist' would never know to visit, and stops at the most Mom & Pop Hole-in-the-Wall eateries. A true treat! The ride covers approximately 14 - 16 flat miles and about 27,391 calories. Cassandra was extremely knowledgable and clearly has a passion for her town. She was engaging, witty, and fun!

We enjoyed fried chicken, chicken/shrimp/sausage gumbo, BBQ shrimp, roast beef po-boys, and popsicles. Oh and a few cold adult beverages (or 3!). Cassandra is a true foodie and not only provided us with NOLA culinary history, but great suggestions where else to eat during our stay.

The tour was $85 which included everything except alcohol and is paid at the end of the tour. They provide a water bottle, a bike basket for your belongings as well as a helmet (optional). I always travel with an extra layer, water, and hand wipes...oh and a camera! It's a well organized 'simple' tour. Highly recommended.

Come hungry and ready to have fun!

“So fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Perfect way to see New Orleans. We loved riding through the old neighborhoods and checking out the cute historical homes. Our tour guide was super nice and really knew the city well. Loved the little bar we stopped in for a beer. Thanks for a great afternoon!

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We visit New Irleans a couple of times a year and wanted to see some of the city from the locals perspective. This did not disappoint. The tour lasted about 3 hours and took us into the neighborhoods of Treme, Marigny and Bywater. Along the way we stopped at a neighborhood bar, a snowball stand and several stops where our guide told us really interesting stories about the area. If you are lucky enough to get Laura as your guide she is really bubbly and a lot of fun, but everyone with this tour are very cool!
