Betsey was a great guide. We learned a lot about New Orleans history. She very adroitly handled acknowledgement of slavery and the involuntary labour that contributed to the prosperity of New Orleans, while still capturing its glamourous history. New Orleans is a great biking city and this was a lovely way to see it.

This tour is a must if you want to get out of the French Quarter to see everything New Orleans has to offer. Excellent tour guide.

Thorn was our guide, and he had a great personality! he knew a lot of information and made sure we didn't miss a thing
