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.

We took the morning cocktail tour and had a blast. The bikes, guide , drinks and info given where all top notch and well worth the $$$. I run an electric bike tour company in Austin TX and have very high expectations, every one of them exceeded.

Keith Hurtt led our bicycle group on this tour. It lasted about three hours with plenty of stops so not a very strenuous ride. Keith was irreverent and funny. A lifelong resident of New Orleans, he has a very NOLA attitude. He doesn't take himself or the city that seriously, but obviously loves the place and packs a ton of... More

We had not been on a bike for almost 20 years. Took a little while and it was like yesterday that we last rode a bicycle. Have to be comfortable to ride on some roads with motor traffic but most of the route was on back streets with very little traffic. Our tour guide was Keith. He can tell you... More

We did this tour so we could see more of New Orleans than could be done on foot and we were not disappointed. Nick took us on a musical history tour and we learnt a lot about the origins of jazz. Visiting the homes, studios, bars and parks where it all began certainly brought the city alive for us. I... More

My daughter and I took a early morning bike tour with Nick, we had a great time, learned a lot, and really got to see the city, and enjoyed it at a pace that was comfortable. Nick made the tour fun and interesting!

So happy that we did the Creole Tour with Nick! It was a highlight of our trip to NOLA. As music lovers, we especially enjoyed Nick's knowledge of jazz and all the bits of information he shared with us. So glad we ventured out of The French Quarter to see some other neighborhoods. Highly recommend doing a bike tour.

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighborhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
