Owner description: The Crescent City is best enjoyed as you glide through its streets and along the riverfront. Our world-class tour guides provide heaps of unique and fascinating stories that make this "America’s Most Interesting City!" All tours are limited in size so you can count on a great and a personal experience full of fun and fantastic photo ops! City Segway Tours is the original New Orleans Segway tour company! After being forced to close our doors because of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, we are thrilled to finally be coming home. When you glide with us, you’ll know you are gliding with the original and the best.

We did the 3-hour Segway tour through the Quarter. Much of the beginning is dedicated to training and getting comfortable on the Segway, then you are off. Our guide Sarah was wonderful - fun and knowledgeable. It was a bit rainy at first, but no problem with the Segways and they have ponchos on hand just in case. It can be unnerving at some points with all the cars - at times you are in traffic. Our experience was that the cars gave us wide berth, so no problem. Fun way to see parts of the City you may not otherwise walk to.

Although a bit pricey, we had a great time.

This segway tour was a wonderful choice for New Orleans. Walking the French Quarter, Treme, Frenchman Street and along the mighty Mississippi River would be a lot for most people, riding on a Segway made it a breeze.

Of course, you get a helmet to use & safety instructions followed by a test drive inside their office space. Then, you are ready to go. There’s even an onboard pouch for a small bag or a bottle of water.

The guides are knowledgeable about the city and take you to all the top spots. They are happy to answer questions and take a few pictures with your camera. We even got a chance to cruise around and enjoy riding in the safety of a large empty private parking lot.

Riding a Segway is a bucket list item for many people - give it a try in NOLA. ✅

Took a tour with Chuck-- very knowledgeable & entertaining. Our kids (14,12) can't stop talking about him. Great way to see the city, saw a couple things we never would have seen on our own. Highly recommended Chuck-- ask for him!

Our group of 8 took the tour with June as our guide. She was friendly and knowledgeable about the area but also kept things interesting. We had plenty of time to get used to the segways and covered a large area of the city from regular tourist spots to cemeteries to off-the-beaten-path spots. Very positive note is that she didn't emphasize that tips were expected. That earned her a larger than usual tip from our group.

We had a great time on this Segway tour of the French Quarter and surrounding neighborhoods! Our family of five ages sixteen to sixty enjoyed every minuet of the tour. Chuck was a great guide. He was very helpful during the training, knowledgable of the history and entertaining too! We highly recommend this tour.
