Meet your group and guide on Decatur Street for a 30-minute orientation session and safety instruction. Once you feel comfortable on your Segway, it’s time to hit the road!
Follow your guide through the French Quarter, New Orleans’ cultural hub and the oldest part of the city. Admire the French and Spanish colonial architecture and see buildings dating all the way back to the 1700s.
Cruise along the Mississippi River waterfront and learn why the French chose to colonize New Orleans. Enjoy sweeping views of the West Bank and catch a glimpse of a steamship paddling by.
Head to Louis Armstrong Park, the birthplace of jazz. Explore the beautifully manicured park, a lesser-known spot among tourists, and enjoy the green landscape dotted with fountains.
Visit Jackson Square, the center of the city when the French first settled here. Surrounding the square are some of the oldest buildings in the US including St Louis Cathedral, the oldest operating Catholic Church in the US, and the Cabildo, where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803.
On bustling Bourbon Street, see the favorite hangout spot of the infamous French pirate Jean Lafitte. Then, stop by the Old US Mint, a historic landmark that now houses part of the Louisiana State Museum.
Choose the 6pm evening departure for a New Orleans sunset treat.
Extended 3-Hour Tour:
If you choose the 3-hour tour, you’ll also visit Tremé, made popular by the post-Hurricane Katrina HBO series. This neighborhood was home to Caucasians, Haitians, Creoles and ‘free people of color’ in the late 18th century, and helped give rise to jazz culture.
You’ll also stop by Congo Square, a section of Armstrong Park that was once a vibrant market place where slaves and free people of color could trade, exchange news and play music on Sundays.
Return to Decatur Street to conclude your tour.

Amazing. Lucky enough that we had a personal guide!
First time doing a Segway tour. It was easy to operate and lots of fun involved.
Segways were great fun and our guide was safe. And KNOWLEDGEABLE!
Great way to see New Orleans. Our tour guide shared lots of information about the area. we had a great time!
It's probably the best way to see New Orleans...
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 :
This tour was amazing!
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!!
Great tour from beginning to end. They made sure we were comfortable with the segway and we watched a safety video. Our guide Justin, was very knowledgeable about the area. He was very patient and kind to a member of our group who didn't practice safety that ran into a curb and crashed. Do a Segway tour, you won't regret it!!!
It was an amazing experience to ride the segway and get a view of the entire city. Very educational. We are a senior couple on our way out west and I had never been to New Orleans before and wanted a flavor of New Orleans without staying for a long time. We also experienced taking Uber for the first time to and from our segway experience.
We loved our Segway tour. We saw parts of NOLA we would never have seen on foot. Our guide was knowlegeable and cautious. We felt safe and confident in our Segway abilities. We plan to take a Segway tour in every new city we visit. We were mostly amazed at how intuitive using the Segway became after only a few minutes of training.
This tour is wonderful! I took this tour with my wife and our two teenage boys. We got to see a historical perspective of New Orleans that Bourbon street can't offer. I guide "Tim" was the best. I highly recommend when taking this tour you ask for him. Finally, riding the segway was AWESOME!!
Loved the Segway tour. Was worried about trying to ride the Segway, but they were great teachers. It was a Sunday so there was only the two of us and the guide which made it very personal. He showed us things we asked about and took us to some interesting places.
The best way to sightsee!!
a complete blast,,,,
Absolutely fabulous! June was our guide and what an historian, cheerful and full of names-dates-who-what-why-when and where! The entire trip was joyful and in my group of six 4 of them had never done a tour anywhere prior and now are totally hooked and planning future City Segway Tours. I would highly recommend. The Segway itself is very easy and fun to quickly learn on. New Orleans what a cool, beautiful, historical ride. If you're looking for a cool and fun way to see a city and learn MORE about it...also getting the local hotspots to eat, drink or hang....then this is the tour for you.
Fantastic tour well worth the money, no quicker way to see the Quarter and the guide was very knowledgeable.
The training was adequate. The tour was nice. You see a lot of the city, more than you would if you walked it. Our guide was Justin and he told us a lot of interesting facts about the area. The staff was very nice.
Wonderful. Grandaughter and I have taken Segway tours all over the US, Europe and Central America. This one of NOLA is right up there with the best. Intimate group of three: granddaughter, guide June, and me. Have only the highest praise for June. Her background and passion is NOLA history and it was evident in her location descriptions and their placement in the history and fabric of NOLA. The 3-hour tour never felt canned, but always fresh and infused with the vitality of youth. Thanks June for a wonderful afternoon. Chuck
Had a fabulous 3 hour tour with Sarah.. She was excellent!! We would definitely recommend her to anyone taking this tour. She is very knowledgeable about New Orleans and was very patient with the other members of the tour that had never ridden a Segway.
What can I say? SO MUCH FUN!! We love blazing around on a Segway, and you get so much area covered in a short time. Our guide, Justin, was engaging and funny. We learned a lot about the neighborhood adjacent to the French Quarter, the Marigny. This is where the famous Frenchman St is located. We love riding Segways and we love history, so combining the 2 was a great way to kill a few hours and have a blast doing it. Try it out. We hope you get to love it as much we do. We know we will do Segway tours in other cities.
So much fun! You see so much more of the city when you are on a Segway. Our guide, June, was great. Would definitely do this again.
Do take a Segway tour. It's easy, fun and you'll love it. This is our second, the first was in San Antonio, Perfect way to see a new city for the first time
Great way to see more of the French Quarter while enjoying the ride. This by far has been the best way to see around the French Quarter, the smaller communities around the perimeter which get lost due to time constraints and awareness, down Frenchmen Street and along the Mississippi. Our guide was able to keep us safe regardless of the busy streets and crazy drivers best of all was the GREAT weather. No showers and little humidity - couldn't have asked for a better day between storms. A must for all! My daughter woke up with the flu that morning and wasn't able to join us, and was disappointed she couldn't attend- but there's next time!
This is the best way to cover a lot of ground and see far more than you could by walking. It was a terrific way to see the French Quarter and Treme. Our guide, Jason, was great! He was very knowledgeable and very patient with the inexperienced group members. Midway through our tour, he took us to a large empty parking lot so we could let loose on the Segway! So much fun. I highly recommend a Segway tour in any city.
My friend and I were visiting NOLA for Mardi Gras and wanted to view the city from a different point of view. We were on the 11:00 tour and had an absolute blast. Neither one of us had ever been on a Segway so thought it would be fun and we were right. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to spend a few hours riding through some of the fun and funky street in the French Quarter.
My wife and I loved this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and ensured that everyone in our group was safe.
Great guide and Segway is always the way to easily see lots and cover lots of ground. Fun!
Great tour. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun. Fun way to see New Orleans.
Great exploration of the area, some history and some parts a little outside the French Quarter.
This was the best tour ever! My guide, June, was awsome!! I was lucky enough to be the only customer and got a really good history lesson of New Orleans!! I think that a segway is an excellent and fun way to see a city. They are super easy to operate. I would highly recommend this adventure.
Great fun and safe.
Our tour guide Kathy was very friendly and knowledgable
Would recommend to anyone.
We had so much fun! No trouble learning to use the Segway. Guide was always cautious with us on the streets but gave us an opportunity to let 'er rip in an empty parking lot to see what we could do! Information provided was wonderful, we saw so many areas of New Orleans and the three oldest buildings still in use today. Many photo stop ops as well. Guide was more than happy to snap our photo, no selfies! This was the highlight of our trip! Do this trip!
This was a lot of fun. The Segways are fun to ride and a great way to move around the French Quarter. Our guide was friendly and informative. He obviously loves the city and it history.
We liked this tour so much we will look for it in our upcoming trip to Chicago.
Definitely the best way to tour NOLA. The Segway crew was great, and our guide was safe, funny and knowledgeable. Thank you.
Everything about this was great! the segway is a blast and they are very good about getting you comfortable with it quickly.
I'm sure all the guides are wonderful, but we had June and it's going to be hard to top her! She is truly full of passion for what she is doing and will make every little part of this trip interesting for you. I cannot recommend this highly enough! Be sure to take the 3 hour tour, it will fly by!
Great way to see a city! Our guide, Rod, was phenomenal! He made sure that everyone was safe and comfortable.
This was great. It's really fun to ride Segways and see the city. Our tour guy was awesome and did a great job! It was a really fun way to see the city!
We booked this tour on our last day in NOLA - we absolutely should've booked this as soon as we got into town!! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out a number of sites that we definitely need to go back and see. And no worries about getting the hang of it. It only took several minutes for us to get riding on the segways and start exploring. SO much better than walking!! We went from one end of the French Quarter to another and even visited a couple cemeteries just outside the French Quarter. Will definitely pick up another segway tour in another area soon.
My wife and I always do Segway tours when we travel, they are so much fun. Our guide was great and it was an awesome tour which was so much fun. We will do it again when we come back.
This is so much easier than it looks. Quick lesson and we were off. Got to see more of the French Quarter this way and our guide was very informative and a true native. Definitely worth the time and effort!!
As I went on a Tuesday during low travel season I was the only person on my tour! It was incredibly personal and fun. We went all over the French Quarter. Brad was a great tour guide. Highly recommend for a way to see a ton without killing your feet.
Tom was our guide and we had a blast,,,,
A great three hour tour. June, our guide is a recent Tulane history grad, and was full of interesting details on just about everything we saw.
The Segways were easy to learn, and a blast to ride. We covered far more ground than we ever could have walking, and returned refreshed. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Knowledgeable guide. Fun way to see areas of the French Quarter you may want to revisit.
Loved it! I would recommend this tour for everyone. Guides are extremely knowledgeable and fun. You get to take a tour of New Orleans, learn about the city and decide what you would like to see later on! Segways are easy to learn and fun to ride on. I would do this again anytime. Thanks to everyone at Viator...you are the best!
Great tour and a good way to get the lay of the land
Amber our tour guide was excellent
This experience was totally enjoyable!! June was our guide and she definitely knew her history facts!! Nothing was brought up that stumped her. She was extremely pleasant and patient. We would definitely do this tour again!
Excellent pre-tour training and a fantastic guide!
Excellent, a very friendly staff. Stephen did a great job. He had an abundance of local knowledge sand was very good in sharing it. Highly recommended!
Brilliant fun, great tour guide thanks Jack
Nice Segway tour though the French Quarter with well explained history by our guide. Even got yo pass a filming shoot for NCIS New Orleans on the way...cool!
We Loved it. It was awesome. I only fell one time my own fault for not watching where I was going.
Local guide was informative and interesting. Gave historical facts and local narratives. Segway was fun to ride and the route was beautiful.
We had a great experience on this tour!! Covered much more area than we could have ever seen by walking or driving around! Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions that we had.
This was a great way to see a lot of the city quickly! Our guide was a history major and very informative! I highly recommend the Segway Tour!
The tour was great the guide told us a lot of interesting facts about the French Quarter and showed us how to use the Segway.
We had a great time!! Tour guide did a great job!!
The segway tour was great.The machine is very easy to use, the tour guide was very knowledgable and the city is very beautiful.
This tour was great! After 25 to 30 minutes of Segway instruction and a little practice, we were off to see the city. We crisscrossed our way across the French Quarter, from the river to the Treme neighborhood. The guide was a native who was both friendly and knowledgeable. A definate must.
We had a pleasant Segway trip throughout The French Quarter. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly!
The BEST tour ever!!! We lived it!! It was fun, easy to learn and our tour guide was amazing!! We will certainly recommend this to our friends!
This tour was phenomenal! I and #39;d never been on a Segway before buthe their training session was great...I was comfortable in just a few minutes. The tour itself was great...terrific guide and exposed my wife and I to some cool areas we would not have seen, otherwise. I HIGHLY recommend this tour.
This tour was a BLAST!!! We had never been on Segway's before and we were a little nervous - but they taught us well and we had a fabulous time! Our guide JON was great!!!
Very enjoyable experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone especially if you want to see all of New Orleans outside of the typical places. Well worth it!
Steve was the best, most accommodating guide. He talked us through and gave quite a bit of history about the town. None of my family had been on segways before and he gently nudged us until we built our confidence. Definitely would use this service again!!! Favorite part of our trip.
Awesome! Amazing! Spectacular! Everyone should try this, don and #39;t think you and #39;re too old (we and #39;re 65+), and don and #39;t be afraid. It just takes a couple minutes to get the hang of it - and so worth it. So much fun!! And Steven -our tour guide - great teacher, and very entertaining!!
Kathy was amazing! We had so much fun! We saw so many things and learned so much history!
Wonderful! Everyone in our group had previously been on Segways, so we took to the streets right away. Perspective customer's should be advised that your are sharing the road with cars and trucks most of the time. Amber, our fun, knowledgeable guide, was absolutely terrific.
great time and what a way to see the city - - - my wife and I have done about 6 segway tours, but it was more fun seeing our daughter and son-in-law on a segway for the first time. will always look for a tour every where we go.
Excellent tour, great way to see a lot of the city quickly. Informative and fun at the same time, everyone should take a segway tour!
We were somewhat hesitant about using the Segway, but once we got out onto the streets, we loved it. Great way to get around the French Quarter and more. Our guide was very good as well. Knowledgeable and courteous. I would highly recommend this tour.
Cathy was a fabulous guide. Spoke clearly about history, was very informative. She was also very helpful with taking pics. Segways are the best way to see a large area in a short amount of time.
This tour was awesome. Rod is a great guy and a great guide. He gave us so much information about NOLA. I would highly recommend doing this tour first thing so you can get a good grasp of whats in the French Quarter. After the tour, I couldn't wait to go out and explore since I knew where I wanted to go. I wish they offered more tours because everyday my son wanted to Segway Let's go segway again today hey, let's segway again today. It was almost tempting to do the same tour twice. LOL!
Excellent. A must for anyone who wants a close up view of New Orleans
Fun, exciting and educational.
Very enjoyable tour. If you haven't ridden on a Segway before, this is the time to do it.
Just a terrific time had by all 5 of us. Jon was informative and entertaining. Just a great mix of humor and history. Gave us time to grab coffee at a great neighborhood spot as well as buzz around an empty parking lot. I thought it might be tough to navigate the bumpy, congested roads but Jon guided us well. Great time.
We had never ridden segways before. A little nervous at first, but pretty easy to catch on. I am 58 and my husband is 61, so if we can do it probably anybody can. This was my husbands favorite activity we did all week.We will do this again in other cities if available.
Had a ball! We are both in our 60's and initially not sure of doing this, but it turned out fine,easy to do and we had a blast! Highly recommend!
The best experience in NOLA! Great tour guide. Highly recommended.
Too much fun for an afternoon and a great way to see a lot of the city in a relatively short period of time. I recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn a lot about the city and it's history.
Learned a lot....had a great time...guide was exceptional
This tour was fun and informational. Amber, the tour guide, was excellent. She was knowledgeable and very good at connecting with each individual. Riding the segways was a blast. I want one now.
Lots of fun
Great fun. Had a small group with a fabulous guide for the tour. She tailored the visit a bit to suit our needs and made us feel welcome in New Orleans. She knew the history well. Thanks!
Fabulous tour. Quite fun, and different. Great way to see the city.
Simple process to book. Guide was ready for us when we arrived. Great training. AWESOME adventure thru the French Quarter. Was a blast for our entire group!
Excellent experience...all the way from booking to conformation to a most excellent tour of the French Quarter area. Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! This is our 2nd Segway tour. Steve shared a lot about the city history and the French Quarter. The only negative is the streets are very rough so you may be a little sore the next day as we were jostled around quite a bit...With that said I would still do the trip again!
Loved it!! We had a quick lesson that was very helpful, staff were patient and helpful. Tour was awesome!! So much fun. Tim was a great guide, full of info.
We had a fun trip and the sedgeway tour guide was very informative and enthusiastic!
This was a great tour! My husband and I had never been on segways and we were initially hesitant. But much to our surprise we were up and running and feeling comfortable within minutes! The tour of the French Quarter was a great overview and our guide was very thorough and patient. We loved the fact that our group was small - only five of us. Perfect. They even provided ponchos for the rainy weather we encountered. Two hours very well spent.
