Great was to tour the back streets of New Orleans. About 11m of easy riding, with a Nice break midway in City Park. Tonya was very informative as a guide

What an amazing 3.5 hour tour. The guide was so knowledgeable and fun, the tour was informative and interesting and the bikes were new and easy to ride. Highly recommend! A perfect way to see the city.

We were extremely pleased with our bike tour. There were only two of us, so it was like a private tour. We got to see everything that was promised plus some sites we didn't know we would get to see: we were only walking the rest of the days and the Degas House and Sculpture Garden at City Park were so appreciated. Otherwise, we probably wouldn't have had transportation to see them.

We really enjoyed our tour guide, Chuck. He was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The stops were perfect- just the right amount of time and biking. It was a really great tour.

We got to see a lot of the city in a short time. Pace was good and guide was knowledgeable. We even went to dinner the next night at one of restaurants the tour took us past. I would suggest bringing a small snack like granola bar or trail mix just to give a boost for the last few miles.

One of the best tour I did in New Orleans.. our guide ‘Chuck’ was more of a friend to us. It was totally a fun ride through the beautiful avenues, parks etc ..

Such a great way to see this city. They take you to areas you wouldn't normally get to. We stopped at a cemetery and we got the whole story of New Orleans cemeteries so you don't need to book another tour for that. We saw many neighborhoods and the City park. Lots of stops and history told. Well worth the money. Highly recommend this tour.

What a perfect way to see New Orleans, the French Quarter and the City Park areas. Our group had an exception time. I had not ridden a bike in 30 years -- but it's true what they say, it's like getting back on a bike, it all comes back to you. If you have 3 hours to spare, and you want to do more than walk around NOLA, hope on a tour and enjoy your day.

This was an amazing way to see so much more of the city than just the French Quarter. We couldn't have had better weather and tour guide. Definitely recommended.

Unfortunately our bike ride was cut short due to severe weather that included lightning. The company did the right thing by having us return but they rescheduled the folks who were available, and for ourselves a complete refund plus tshirts for my husband and I. Further to this, our guide was very knowledgeable about New Orleans and was a complete gentleman and professional. Highly recommend this company.

Great way to see and learn about the city, we had so much fun I'm a bike rider 1 of my friends is not but she was worried about distance and she did great and loved it
• Submitted 27 Sep 2018
This was a looooong ride about 10 miles and probably should have been about half the distance but it was a very comprehensive city tour. There was a lot of stops and history given. I had not ridden a bike for a few years before this so it was a lot for me but ultimately a great way to see the city. Highly recommend but get in shape first because I did not.

This tour was amazing! Our guide, Cam, was interesting, friendly, and knowledgeable. This was a great way to see much more of the city beyond the French Quarter and provided us with loads of history. We enjoyed the afternoon and thought it was the highlight of our visit to New Orleans.
