“Fun (Healthy) Way to Tour the City”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The jogging tour is a great way to explore NOLA. Our guide, Marcus, was super interesting - sharing details about the historic sights and his own personal history and experiences in New Orleans. You don't need to be a "runner" for the tour - but it is a bit disconnected if you are in a group with varying speed abilities. Marcus adjusts well, but he starts his explanations when the bulk of the group reach a site, so if you are farther behind you may miss some of the details. That said, NOLA is really flat so any running can be done at a nice pace.

“Best tour EVER!”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

This jogging tour is amazing. Marcus was wonderful. He kept a pace we were confortable with, had terrific knowledge of New Orleans and was very fun and friendly. You do not need to be a "runner" for this tour. I can't believe all the wonderful places he took us: cemetaries, celebrities homes, Garden District, French Quarter, etc. He also gave GREAT recommendations for the rest of our trip. He listened to our style and suggested restarurants, bars, and museums. The jogging tour was the best part of my entire trip. I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.

“Must do for any runner visiting NOLA”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

My wife and I were visiting NOLA for work and as avid runners wanted to check out the city. We stumbled upon this tour and decided to give it a shot. Marcus, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, fun, and professional. He took us through the French Quarter all the way to the Garden District pointing out historical points of interest along with pop culture hot spots.

I don't believe we would have seen as much of NOLA if it was not for Marcus and the New Orleans Jogging Tours.

In short, do not pass up this tour.

“Great Tour!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

My husband and I visit NOLA several times a year and thought we knew the city...wrong! Marcus took us through several neighborhoods I knew nothing about but will definitely visit in the future...also, for people who wouldn't consider this tour because they're not "runners", DO IT!! Marcus will adjust his pace to yours (even if you're most comfortable fast walking with a few jogs thrown in!). The hardest part was the 6:00 AM start time but everything after that was a piece of cake...I'll FOR SURE do this tour again. Thanks, Marcus, great job!
