Your tour begins in the oldest area of New Orleans - the famous French Quarter, boasting nearly 300 years of United States history. Your fully licensed tour guide will take you to popular highlights in "the Quarter" including St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square along with some lesser-known gems, all while telling you fascinating stories about your surroundings.
Next, we'll pedal to the charming oak-lined Garden District. We'll stop to admire these lavish historic homes of New Orleans and talk about some of their most famous occupants throughout history and modern times. In addition to being the part of the Mardi Gras parade route, this area is dotted with boutiques, antique shops, and cool bars that you will absolutely want to return to.
