Bob was outstanding! Extremely knowledgable and gave us some excellent historical background and cool facts from a local. We did the 8-11 a.m. (3 hour) narrated tour. It was hot in July - but still worth doing, it's not too bad when you start that...More

I was referred to Bob by a friend who had used him for her sister's bachelorette party (a group of 8) and hear amazing things. We were excited to do the bike tour as well, but we had a whopping 24 people! Believe it or...More

Just finished a 5 hour tour with Bob through the Esplanade and Garden Districts. What a great time! June is not exactly peak tourist season in NOLA, so I was the sole participant. This was the only tour I could locate that started early in...More

Going on a tour with Bob from Big Easy Bike Tours is the most intimate way to experience New Orleans. We started in the French Quarter, and then hit Esplanade Ave, highlighting the beautiful architecture of the homes. We stopped at a grave yard and...More

Even if you don't 'do' tours (perhaps especially if you don't 'do' tours) - Bob's Big Easy Bike Tours is a must-do way to learn about the multicultural, musical, colonial, architectural, and geological history and current situation of this unique city!! Bob is deeply knowledgeable,...More

This tour is a one-man operation. Bob is the one and only tour guide; it's his business; and he keeps the groups small on purpose. Yes, the bikes are old cruisers - and so what. We signed up for a tour of the city, not...More

Overall, "the ride with narration' tour was great. Saw lots of interesting things, and a lot more of New Orleans than we would have seen on our own. Two warnings: the bikes are kindof junkers and one of them kept breaking down on our tour....More

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
