Itinerary

Hop on a rental bike at Flambeaux Bicycle Tours in the French Quarter and set off with a guide and small group of no more than 10 to explore the most famous neighborhood in New Orleans. Then, venture beyond well-known sites to learn about the city’s rich history and heritage, starting from its founding in 1718.

Pedal along the banks of the Mississippi River and through the three oldest parts of New Orleans—Faubourg Marigny, Faubourg Treme, and Faubourg Sainte Marie. Cruise down leafy Esplanade Avenue, past legendary St. Louis Cemetery No. 2, and through Louis Armstrong Park and the former voodoo hot spot of Congo Square. Stop along the way to hear about New Orleans heritage, especially the development of jazz music and the life of its famed local innovator, Louis Armstrong.

The tour returns to its departure point.
