“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Just rented bikes but would definitely do a tour if I went back to NOLA. Fantastic service, fast, efficient, friendly and the weather was perfect for just cruising around the streets.
Highly recommend Crescent City.

“One of the best ways to see and learn more about New Orleans!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We have been to New Orleans multiple times and have done a number of tours, but enjoyed the Bike Tour the most. Having been born and raised in NOLA, Richard was a fantastic guide who shared much history and stories of the many attractions in the area. Including the Algiers/Canal Street ferry offered awesome views of the city and introduced us to Algiers for the first time.The bikes were super comfortable and easy to ride. If you're even thinking of doing a bike tour, go with these guys, you won't regret it. Well worth your money and time. Can't wait to return to NOLA and do some more biking with Crescent City Bike Tours.

“Excellent Bike Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Who wants to be stuck inside an air conditioned bus, hurtling past some of the awesome sites of New Orleans you want to see, and too big to fit down the streets of lots of the others?

A bike tour is the perfect way to discover New Orleans and I would highly recommend doing so with Crescent City Bike Tours.

Richie lead our tour and was an excellent guide. Immediately personable and extremely knowledgable, he made us feel at ease right away. He was happy to go at whatever pace suited us, pointing our notable sites and points of history, culture and fun as we worked our way around New Orleans from the French Quarter in a 2.5 - 3 hour 7 mile gentle bike ride.

Richie was extremely knowledgable, and very happy to comprehensively answer any questions we had. He was even happy for us to stop for a coffee and sustenance mid ride!

Outside of being a full and beautiful tour of New Orleans, we also took a short Ferry ride with our bikes over to the Mississippi to Algiers Point do do some cycling there and get a different perspective of the city. This is not something you're going to find on other tours of the city.

Bikes were brand new and excellent quality, water and helmet supplied and even an awesome peacan cookie given to us the end to help re-fuel!

Great customer service, great tour, very good value and both Richie & Kristine were warm and genuine people, wanting to share the city they love with visitors and locals alike.

I recommend starting your stay in New Orleans with this bike tour to see which parts of this amazing city appeal to you most, so you can then tailor the rest of your stay to visiting those.

Thanks Richie and Kristine - You guys and the tour you've created are awesome.

“The Best Thing You'll do in NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

By far my favourite part of our trip to NOLA. I loved learning more about the history of the city while also seeing so many different parts. Richie takes his time, knows the city so well, is happy to answer any questions and also offer recommendations for the rest of your stay. The booking was easy, accommodating, and I love how the tour finished with freshly baked (& delish) cookies from Christine.

My husband and I booked this tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it!!! Richie does a great job of introducing us to the city and sharing the wonderful history with us. The pace of the tour was very relaxed and Richie was extremely flexible about stopping for pictures of refreshments. Great value for the price!!
