      Creole E-Bike tour
      This was a fun ride, made even better with Betsy’s knowledge and sense of humor. The creole tour gets you out of the most seen areas and mixes in the popular ones too.

      Great for older children, teens and adults, keeps your interest and fun.
      Great history, I realize there isn’t enough time to share all of NOLA’s history, but I do wish more Black history would have been shared, we rode right by an area of the pier that was where the enslaved were brought in to New Orleans but it wasn’t mentioned at all. All our history, even the bad, is important to acknowledge. I think we felt very safe on our bikes as our guide had a careful eye on our group, even in busy intersections and places that were hairy, traffic wise. Very interesting overall, the bikes made it fun for adults as well as our teen daughters

      Fun and informative.....highlight of our trip
      A fun way to spend a few hours and learn about the City of New Orleans, including but beyond the French Quarter. From the Riverfront to City Park you will cover 300 years of history and culture. Our guide, Guy, was fantastic.

      Best bike experience!
      Do not hesitate to book this tour! It was the highlight of our trip to New Orleans. Jeffrey, our guide, was so informative, and safety was always his first concern. The e bikes are so easy and comfortable to ride, for any fitness and experience level. The tour took us outside of the French Quarter so we could see more of what makes New Orleans so special. 100% would do this tour again.

      Great bike ride through The Big Easy
      Jeffrey did a great job on our tour. He made sure we were safe and got to see lots of unique sites around the city. We enjoyed a stop at City Park and Cafe Du Monde for coffee and beignets. I would definitely recommend this tour. It was a great way to see the city and learn more about it from a local.

    This was my 2nd trip to New Orleans and my mother’s 1st. My mother enjoys riding bikes, so I booked the 3 hour bike tour of the French Quarter and Garden district. It was a great tour especially for a first time visitor because you get a good overview of the area.

    We were thankful traffic in the area was light and our tour guide Jeffrey was excellent at guiding us through and across streets throughout our tour. He also did a wonderful job making sure we were hearing things that were of interest to us during the tour. He’s a very versatile tour guide and can easily give you information regarding art, music, history, food, and even “New Orleans Hollywood” related factoids. He also helped us decide where to stop for a quick, but delicious lunch after our tour on the way to the WWII museum.

    What I appreciated most on the tour was Jeffery’s ability to project his voice. My mother is hearing impaired and she was able to enjoy the bike tour because she was able to hear him speaking.

    The bicycles were comfortable and easy to navigate. Buzz Nola tours provides a water bottle and helmet. Although we didn’t need a break during our tour, we were given two different opportunities to stop for a break during our tour. Overall, we had a great time and would strongly recommend this tour!

    Jeffrey (with two F's) is a very engaging tour guide. His historical stories at the various stops along the route were interesting as well as entertaining. Our whole family, kids ages, 18, 15 and 12, enjoyed the experience. It was a great way to see New Orleans, especially during the pandemic when so much is closed. On the bright side, there was very little traffic to compete with on the streets.
    The bicycles were very comfortable to ride for three hours.

    A tour guide can make or break the experience. Jeffery was a hurricane! The drink not a disaster.
    First Jeffery helped us feel safe riding bikes in the city. His confidence and clear direction was assuring not only with his biking skills but conveyed directly into his deep knowledge of New Orleans history. He's a natural story teller. Pulling us in with his passion for real stories that are much more interesting than fiction. I'm sure he was directed to touch on particular historic facts but what made us listen was his energy and allure for the irony of good & evil in historic events.

    Fantastic tour of the city with an excellent guide. Jeffrey provided our family of four (including two teens) an interesting and fun experience throughout the French Quarter and Garden District. We learned some fascinating history, saw architectural elements, and heard great stories about the city then and now. It’s clear that Jeffrey has a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of New Orleans (land, culture, food, music, people, etc.) and he kept us engaged and entertained throughout the tour. I also very much appreciated his diligence and care in guiding us through traffic and on the unique roads of the city. I would book another tour with him in a minute if we had the chance!

    This was truly an amazing tour. Jeffrey, our guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable. He’s a great storyteller, and he’s got exceptional people skills. My husband, my 22 year old son and I went on the Crescent Tour, and he made each of us feel welcomed. What’s more, we started our day touring with him, and from there had a clearer vision as to how we wanted to spend the rest of our day. This was our first bike tour of a city, but we’re determined moving forward to start out all of our trips to urban areas on a bike tour to get a lay of the land and a context for making meaning of the rest of what we explore.

    A few years ago I also did a tour that went to up Esplanade Ave to City Park with Buzz Nola, I’m not sure it’s still available. I’ve really enjoyed both tours I took. The guides were well informed and provided a lot of info. Biking is a great way to see New Orleans.

    My partner and I had a ridiculously good time on this trip. The tour guide was absolutely incredible. And even though the weather was a little bit sketchy, the park has provided help to skip through the rain. The tour guide customized the tour to the things that people wanted to see, and so we got to visit all of the spots we wanted to look at. I honestly haven't had a better time on a tour so thank you very much to this group. Can't wait to come back and do it again.

    Tour was great. I signed up for a regular bike tour but got shifted to an ebike tour. I had never been on an ebike and was apprehensive, but it was totally the way to go. I would have been hot and sweaty for the rest of the day on a regular bike. The ebike helped with tackling small hills and using turbo boost to get through intersections with cars but I still got my exercise. Jeffery was our guide and he was great. He was both knowledgeable and friendly. He covered food, history, art and architecture. He also recommended places to go after. Overall very satisfied. Thanks Jeffrey!

    I have taken this tour 5 different times. I love it so much! Any time I have New Orleans first timers visiting, I suggest Buzz Nola and end up going on the tour with them. A plus for me having done it so many times is that there's always something NEW that I learn on the tour! This city is fascinating and Buzz Nola just keeps it going!

    Jeffrey is my favorite tour guide. He's so knowledgable and easy to get along with. His story telling is captivating and he's got a great sense of humor!

    Great tour given by Milan, our guide! We went mid week and were lucky enough to be the only two on the tour. They have electric bikes for anyone who may want to upgrade, although NOLA is pretty flat. Plenty of historical explanations and stops, equal time in French quarter and Garden district with a short break in between where we had a coffee drink and scone. (The beignet came later on a food tour!) Bike tours are a great way to see more of the city with a knowledgeable guide who points out very interesting things that is otherwise missed. Its also a great starting point of a visit to a new place and we were very happy with this company.
