Join Fat Tire Tours through the electric streets of New Orleans' most famous neighborhoods and see the top sights in the city by Segway! This tour is a fantastic way to effortlessly cover all the main highlights in a short period of time without wearing yourself out. Your personal Segway will transport you through the Big Easy while your expert, local guide entertains you with fascinating, not dull or monotonous, stories about this beloved city. Our group sizes are limited to ensure a safe and personal experience for all! Every tour begins with an in-depth orientation session at our office, so even if you're brand new to riding Segways, we'll make sure you're comfortable and riding like a pro in no time!
Your three-hour tour begins from our office, located in the heart of the French Quarter just blocks away from Jackson Square. Covering more ground than you ever could on foot, we'll cruise along the Mighty Mississippi River, where your guide will fill you in on the incredible role this river has played in United States history. All while having a ton of fun, you'll cruise to the Treme Neighborhood, Louis Armstrong Park, Congo Square, the famous Bourbon Street, the Old U.S. Mint and much, much more! We'll discuss everything from the city's unique history, how it became the birthplace of jazz, the beautiful architecture, and of course, everything you need to know about our delicious food scene! We always make time to stop for plenty of photo opportunities so be sure to bring your camera!

Your safety is always our highest priority and many guests have never ridden a Segway before coming on tour with us. So, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation to the Segway and its use before going out to enjoy the city!
We do not enter the museums and monuments on tour, though we do stop occasionally to explore areas on foot that we can’t explore on the Segway, such as Jackson Square. Other museums and monuments will be pointed out to you on tour and your guide will be able to provide you directions to these if you wanted to explore them after your tour.
Absolutely! However, we do recommend that you ask your guide to take your pictures so you can focus on riding and balancing on your Segway.
Unfortunately we do not rent our Segways out to individuals without a guide.
Our tours operate rain or shine. We have ponchos available in our office for use should unexpected rain develop.
Segways are only allowed on the streets and ride alongside traffic just as bicyclists do. Our guides are very experienced guiding groups safely through the streets and there is plenty of room for both Segway and other vehicles.
