Geoffrey was an awesome guide, in fact he got me so interested in New Orelans culture and history and i want to do the ghost tour. The ride is easy, so good for all fitness levels (i was sick with the flu and managed it fine). Def recommended.

He had such an incredible time on our bike tour. We had Guy as our tour guide and although he had far too much confidence in our ability to ride a bike after not touching one for ten years, he was extremely knowledgeable, the route was fabulous and we saw so much of New Orleans we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Would recommend a hundred times over!!
Enjoyable and informative

Hurricane Betsy was a blast!! She had so much knowledge of the history of New Orleans and delivered it in a fun whitty way. She kept the tour moving but wasn’t rushed and the 3 hours flew by. Highly recommend for those who have never been to New Orleans, great way to see a lot in a short time.
