What you can expect
Our ‘Creole & Crescent’ guided bike tour is New Orleans’ Original “Everything” Bike Tour, it’s the tour upon which we built our reputation. It’s perfect for New Orleans first-timers, families and pretty much anyone who loves bike riding, sightseeing and having a good time!
Departing our office in the French Quarter, our first destination is Esplanade Avenue, home to the old Creole gentry of New Orleans. The ‘Avenue of The Creoles’ boasts 19th Century mansions, and is lined with centuries-old Oak trees – it is a true New Orleans treasure. We’ll clarify the confusion between 'Cajun' & 'Creole.'
Cruising down Esplanade, we’ll visit one of the city’s most famous cemeteries, Saint Louis Cemetery No.3, where we’ll see above-ground crypts and explain to you why this is the way that we bury our departed.
Emerging from the cemetery, our bike tour passes over Bayou St. John and into City Park where lives the largest grove of mature Oak trees in the world! You’ll hear the history of the old dueling grounds, whereby bullet and blade, many proud and charismatic New Orleanians met their demise. After showing you a few other whimsical attractions beneath the shaded canopy, we’ll take a break to for refreshments at Cafe Du Monde – here’s your chance to try beignets and cafe au lait.
On our way back to the French Quarter, we pass over Bayou St. John and down Oak lined Ursulines Avenue before crossing into the famous Treme’ neighborhood, a place that music is always playing and good food is always cooking!
Our last stop is to see the birthplace of Jazz Music inside Louis Armstrong Park at Congo Square to learn how such a grand form of music came into existence.
A few blocks away we apply the brakes and bring the bikes to home base – our office in the French Quarter, where restrooms and cold drinks await.
All of our tours are free-flowing & laid back, no two tours are exactly the same.
49 dollar General ticket includes professional licensed tour guide, your bike with a basket & bell, a helmet, and complimentary bottled water. Our Creole & Crescent tour space is limited to 10 people per tour twice a day – So Book Now and let’s go for a ride!
