The 3-hour tour was hands-down the favorite part of our NOLA trip for my husband, teenage son and me. The staff was friendly and helpful; we could not have asked for a better guide than Karina (hope I'm spelling this right!) - she was patient, attentive, cheerful and plenty knowledgeable about the French Quarter, Riverfront, Treme and Marigny. She was a great in helping us on and off our segways and offering to take family photos. After a little practice, we took right away to operation of the segway - it is mainly common sense and feels a little like snow skiing. Most of this tour is conducted in some traffic - French Quarter, Rampart St. The drivers were tolerant and gave us space. We watched Karina's signals and all went well. One word of caution: it is easy to get complacent and comfortable after awhile. I learned this firsthand when I got distracted and fell off in the final block of our tour! I would highly recommend the tour as an ideal way to tour New Orleans, seeing some history and sights of interest up close - yes, we looked a little dorky but were the envy of the hot tourists on walking tours. Several people asked about the tour and for brochures while we were out and about.
