Private New Orleans Bike Tour

Join us for a private bike tour of New Orleans

The Big Easy has never been easier to enjoy!  Our world-renowned tours are famous for making it simple to get a great overview of the city while learning about its history and hearing fun anecdotal stories.  A private tour takes that to the next level.  Our local guides are in love with their city, and they want to show you an insider’s guide to New Orleans.  By securing a guide just for your group, be it a family trip, a vacation with friends, a couple’s get-away, or a celebration, you will guarantee a bespoke itinerary just for your crew!

New Orleans is famous for creole, crawfish, and creating havoc, but we’ll take all of the mystery out of it for you.  We can cruise through the French Quarter on our comfortable city bikes, taking in the historic mansions of yesteryear.  In this neighborhood, we’ll learn about the history of this area’s nickname, the  ‘Crown Jewel’ of New Orleans.  We’ll also touch on its history, filling you in on everything from Victorian estates to rowdy parties, to excellent food while including breathtaking photo stops.  If you’re coming to New Orleans, the French Quarter is a must-see!

We can also include the Garden district on a private bike tour.  Who doesn’t love a cool & breezy ride along oak-lined streets, taking in the beauty of centuries of history?  We can pass through this quieter area of town, giving you a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of Bourbon street and learn more about what makes New Orleans so unique. 

All of our private tours can be organized to fit perfectly along with your groups’ schedule and bucket-list items for New Orleans.  We’re happy to provide an excellent, local guide, the bikes, helmets, a water bottle, and a poncho if necessary, and craft a route for you that hits all of the sites (within biking distance of our office) that you want to see while you’re in town. This tour is geared for those who want to learn about New Orleans and visit it in a fun and relaxing way.  While we can certainly include a stop for drinks and/or food, please note that we allow for up to 3.5 hours for our private tours.  Our speciality is biking in New Orleans.  If you’re looking for something more customized, such as a day that would include catering or a different starting and ending point, thanks for emailing us at [email protected] and we’ll do our best to make your time in New Orleans special.     

Private tour departure times are flexible, so thanks for letting us know in the notes of your booking when you would like to get started, and we’ll confirm by email response.  You can also let us know here if you have must-see sites on your list that would be outside of the French Quarter and Garden District.  Once we’ve confirmed, we’ll schedule a guide just for your group, and we’ll be ready and waiting to take you on an excellent tour of New Orleans!
