Much better than a walking tour because you get to see / visit more interesting areas plus get a better understanding of the history.

My husband and I have enjoyed Segway tours in Austin, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Paris, and now New Orleans. We are happy to report that our New Orleans experience with Amanda as our guide was WONDERFUL ! We were able to see much more of the city and learned a tremendous amount of insider information along the way. Segway is an EXCELLENT way to enjoy a day in a new ...or even a previously visited area.

What a fun way to do a NOLA tour! We were given expert training on how to ride a Segway before we ever left the shop. Tour was great and informative. We were also given free time playing with the Segways in Louis Armstrong Park. Our guide was very informative about all the different spots we stopped. He not only covered the history but current events as well.

Even though it was lightly raining, the tour went on anyway. What a great time. They furnished us with rain ponchos and have us training on the proper operation of the Segway. We rode for several miles, saw interesting sites, neighborhoods, and several off the beaten path areas. Would highly recommend

This tour is Awesome! Segways are soooo easy to learn and soooo much fun to ride. I'm 70, and I had no trouble at all. The training session in their shop before starting the tour is all you need, and you you'll be good to go. This segway tour is the absolute best way to *see* and learn about the French Quarter. Our guide was super-nice and super-informative. You should try it! I promise you'll love it!

We had a great tour with our guide. He was very careful of our safety and made sure we had a chance to see everything we wanted to see. In addition he gave us some ideas on where to eat and show.
