I had read about this tour on Trip Advisor and seemed to fit the bill - I couldn't have been happier with the service I received!
I phoned and made a reservation for Mar.7th and the evening before the run, I received a text reminding me of the time and meeting location the following morning (great touch!)
We met in the French Quarters near the Mint. Note: I took Decataur St. and all the cross streets are clearly indicated. If I didn't get lost, you won't either!
Marcus, our tour guide showed up with his Jogging Tour sign so he was easy to recognize. As there were only two of us (me and and a fellow from New Jersey - Shout out to Mike!) it was like getting a personal, customized visit through several New Orleans districts.
Before we even began, I stated that I wasn't a super-fast runner and Marcus assured us that he'd go out our pace. I must say that I after I finished that I'd been on a run but not like I'd ran a race (which was great) – I exercised AND got to see the sites.
We stopped to look at points of interest such as Jackson Square, a cemetery, famous houses, etc. We ran through the French Quarters, the Business district and the Garden district (beautiful!). All the while, Marcus gave us the history of what we were looking at AND managed to take lots of pictures of us - again, GREAT!
I highly recommend this tour and will do it again when I go back! If you want to run around New Orleans, you want to book with New Orleans Jogging Tours and you Marcus was outstanding!
