Our expert guides will train you to ride and then escort you around the French Quarter and beyond as they discuss New Orleans history, music, architecture, and of course...FOOD! Riders must be at least 12 years old to participate on a segway tour.
The French Quarter
Whether you call it the French Quarter, the Vieux Carre?, or just ?the Quarter? this is the heart of the city for New Orleans Natives and tourists. This is a cultural hub and the oldest part of town. The Architecture reflects its age and many of the historic buildings on the tour have been at their current locations since the late 1700s.
Mississippi River Front
Stand on the banks of the Might Mississippi River and learn about why the French chose to colonize New Orleans. Enjoy sweeping views of the West Bank and catch a glimpse of a steamship paddling by.
The Treme Neighborhood
Made popular by the post-Katrina HBO series, Treme has always been a cultural incubator for the City of New Orleans and the United States at large. Formed at the end of the 18th century, Treme was the first neighborhood established by ?free people of color.? The neighborhood helped give rise to jazz and some of its most talented practitioners still live there today.
Louis Armstrong Park
It's only fitting that the birthplace of Jazz be found inside what is now known as Louis Armstrong Park, named after one of the city's favorite sons. This beautifully manicured park is one of the lesser-known stops amongst tourists, but you'll enjoy the greenery, fountains, and history.
Once a vibrant market place where slaves and free people of color could trade, exchange news, and play music on Sundays; Congo Square now is a quiet corner in Armstrong Park. Even though on most hot New Orleans afternoons Congo Square may seem sleepy, every Thursday evening there are free concerts, and on Sunday afternoons there is still a drum circle (a tradition dating back to the mid-1700s.)
When the French first settled in New Orleans this was the center of the city. Surrounding the Square are some the oldest buildings in the city and in the US. Among them are the St. Louis Cathedral (the oldest Catholic Church still in operation in the US) and the Cabildo (where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803).
It's widely known that Bourbon Street provides some of the most colorful nightlife in the United States. This tourist favorite is much more than hand grenades and hurricanes though. Let us show you the other end of Bourbon street where nestled amongst the rows of Creole Cottages we find the favorite hang out of the Pirate Jean Lafitte.
The Old U.S. Mint
Once a working US Mint (the only Mint in the US to have coined both US and Confederate coins) this historic landmark now houses part of the Louisiana State Museum.
