This is an awesome couple of hours seeing the French Quarter! The tour guide was delightful and very informative. It is fine for first timers!
My husband and I have enjoyed Segway tours in Austin, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Paris, and now New Orleans. We are happy to report that our New Orleans experience with Amanda as our guide was WONDERFUL ! We were able to see much more of the city and learned a tremendous amount of insider information along the way. Segway is an EXCELLENT way to enjoy a day in a new ...or even a previously visited area.
This tour is Awesome! Segways are soooo easy to learn and soooo much fun to ride. I'm 70, and I had no trouble at all. The training session in their shop before starting the tour is all you need, and you you'll be good to go. This segway tour is the absolute best way to *see* and learn about the French Quarter. Our guide was super-nice and super-informative. You should try it! I promise you'll love it!
We enjoyed a very informative tour with Jack. His family has a long history in New Orleans and we were pleased to hear about it .
What a fun way to do a NOLA tour! We were given expert training on how to ride a Segway before we ever left the shop. Tour was great and informative. We were also given free time playing with the Segways in Louis Armstrong Park. Our guide was very informative about all the different spots we stopped. He not only covered the history but current events as well.
Even though it was lightly raining, the tour went on anyway. What a great time. They furnished us with rain ponchos and have us training on the proper operation of the Segway. We rode for several miles, saw interesting sites, neighborhoods, and several off the beaten path areas. Would highly recommend
Awesome tour! We had limited time, and saw all we wanted to see, thanks to our experienced, knowledgeable tour guide !
We had a great time! Very good demo and training session. Suddenly we're making our way around the French Quarter and along the Mississippi River. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
First time doing a Segway tour. It was easy to operate and lots of fun involved.
Great way to see New Orleans. Our tour guide shared lots of information about the area. we had a great time!
ONE OF THE BEST TRAINING SESSIONS I HAVE ATTENDED BEFORE GETTING ON A SEGWAY. OUR GUIDE WAS QUITE KNOWLEDGABLE, VERY FRIENDLY AND ATTENTIVE TO EACH OF US. THE DESTINATIONS WE SAW WERE GREAT AS WELL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR.
My guide was amazing and I was the only one on the tour the day I did it, which meant I got to enjoy a more personalised tour and got to see so much and learn the history of New Orleans.
I cant recommend this tour enough, it is a must do when in the city! Thoroughly enjoyed my day :
We had a great tour with our guide. He was very careful of our safety and made sure we had a chance to see everything we wanted to see. In addition he gave us some ideas on where to eat and show. He had interesting stories to tell about the people and landmarks of the area. We enjoyed the tour very much.
It was a quiet day, so I had the guide all to myself. Great way to see the French Quarter - like walking but more fun and you get to see much more. Guide was helpful and knowledgable. Highly recommended!
An excellent way to see the city. Our tour guide June was insightful and pointed out lots of local landmarks and places to visit and eat in making the whole experience fantastic. Some of the tour highlights included Louis Armstrong park, Tremé and Frenchman Street. Highly recommend!!
