New Orleans Creole Odyssey Small-Group Bike Tour

Explore New Orleans the fun and eco-friendly way on a small-group bike tour that winds through the Big Easy’s oldest and most distinctive neighborhoods. Cycle along a flat and leisurely route from the famous French Quarter to less-visited neighborhoods like Faubourg Tremé, City Park, and Bayou St. John, learning about the city’s rich history and modern culture along the way.

What to Expect

Pick up your bike and meet your guide in the French Quarter, and begin with a ride through this famously funky neighborhood, plus the historic districts of Faubourg Marigny and Faubourg Tremé. Then go beyond the touristy boundaries to explore more of the city, following leafy Esplanade Avenue to the green expanse of City Park, passing St. Louis Cemetery No. 3.

Pay tribute to the city’s jazz heritage in Louis Armstrong Park and Congo Square, and pedal to the shores of Bayou St. John, a critical waterway used by Native Americans, early settlers, voodoo practitioners, and even pirates. Expect to cover a total distance of about 10 miles (16 kilometers) at a leisurely pace before finishing the tour back in the French Quarter.

Most tours will undoubtedly be cancelled if it is raining, but if it is just drizzly they might go. You need to ask the owners.
