Owner description: Established in 2011 - FreeWheelin' Bike Tours is a local, family owned company - Our local roots go back to a time before New Orleans was a city and Louisiana was a state. We were the 1st bike company to offer a tour through City Park, the Garden District, the French Quarter & a nighttime bike ride - if it's not a FreeWheelin' Bike Tour, it's not the real deal! We have a love for our home that is unparalleled - and we want you to experience our city the way we do every day - from the seat of a smokin' cool cruiser bike. If you want quality, value & authenticity, then look no further - we offer the most original & historically accurate bike tours that New Orleans has to offer. At FreeWheelin', we aim to make your ride with us THE most enjoyable and memorable experience you'll have while in New Orleans. Make the best decision of your vacation and take a ride with us - we've got a lot to show you! Slow down, relax and enjoy the ride! Let's Ride - Ryan, Melissa, Teddy, Laura, Andrew & Oli

Mike took us on a great Uptown/Garden District Tour. Our morning ride, even in August, was very pleasant. He has a knack for hitting all the "green lights" too! We even got to see a Banksy!!!

Comfortable, excellent condition bikes, courteous staff (Mike, etal), easy online reservations, convenient location all add up to a fun tour! Thanks guys!

Bike NOLA, it's a great way to see the city.

Mike and the crew at FreeWheelin' epitomize everything that is good about New Orleans. They were hospitable, welcoming and knowledgeable about the city. The tour is a great way to explore the city and its distinct neighborhoods. Even on one of the hottest days of the year, Mike made it cool! He's charismatic, engaging and has a sharp sense of humor. We cannot recommend Mike and this company enough.

Even on a hot day this was an excellent decision. Our guide Teddy was energetic, totally into his job, and a city native - proud to show it off. We took the Creole Crescent tour and the 12 miles went by in a snap. FreeWheelin bikes are made in the USA and are VERY comfortable -even for my senior citizen tush. We took in the local sights, learned history, visited the cemetery, and stopped at a charming cafe for a refreshing frozen coffee and beignets - without the hassle of the French Quarter crowds. My husband and I were so taken by the experience we went back another day to just rent bikes, explore on our own and revisit the City Park cafe - this time for alligator sausages. DELICIOUS!!!!! We can't wait to return to NOLA and take another FreeWheelin' Bike tour. Don't miss this one.

I had been to NOLA before on two working trips, never had much time to see anything other than the Quarter. WOW! Mike made our tour so interesting and fun. He took the time to know the group and included everyone. He showed us so many interesting points about the city from founding history, to architecture, Katrina, movie stars, burial practices, art. WOW. He really gave us way more than was expected, and was very careful to make sure everyone was safe as we crossed over streets. The bikes are super comfortable and an easy ride. The rest of the people we were traveling with never made it out of the Quarter / bars. I feel like they cheated themselves for not coming with us. We actually took a ghost tour the night before and quit halfway through. Spend your money on this tour you will enjoy!

We live about an hour from New Orleans and visit frequently but have never really done any "touristy" activities there. We took the mardi gras, mansion, and movie stars tour and were very pleased. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable (and we know a little about New Orleans history) I don't ride bikes very often so I was a little nervous about crossing the busy streets-not a problem. Our tour guide kept us safe and gave us good instructions.I would highly recommend this activity for anyone visiting the city and anyone who just wants to do something different.
