“Must do if you are a runner and visiting”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

If you have to get a run in and want to see the sights this is awesome! A 6 mile run with the sights and interesting facts about the city. Marcus was a true pleasure to run with and I would recommend to anyone visiting that enjoys running and doesn't want to do it alone, and un-entertained!

“Great Way To See New Orleans Sites”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

In a two hour, moderately paced run with Marcus, you can see many famous New Orleans sites and learn a lot of historical and current information about the city. Marcus is very informative and fun to talk to. He'll lead you on a safe run with frequent, but brief stops and point out historical buildings, landmarks and homes of past and current prominent figures. If you're looking to get in a decent run and want a different way to see and learn about the city, I highly recommend this tour. Ask Marcus lots of questions and also for recommendations on where to eat and drink. He told us to try the Ruby Slipper for brunch and it was excellent.

“Great tour!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I had to get my long run in anyway, so what better way to do so then to spend 6 miles learning about some of the sights and history of New Orleans! Marcus knew his stuff and kept us going, and gave ample warning when rough patches of ground were coming up. He even took photos during the tour (after asking us if it was ok), which is nice. If you're a runner or jogger I highly recommend this tour!

“Awesome way to see New Orleans!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We planned this as one of our activities for a Bachelorette Party Weekend in NOLA. IT was amazing. Not only did we get a great run in, we learned so much about the city. He was very knowledgeable about his city and what he was showing us. He also took the time to run and even pace for the slower runners in our group. I would strongly recommend this tour. will be doing this again next time. now to convince my husband to run... :)

“Great way to see the city even for a seasoned NOLA veteran”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I've visited NOLA numerous times and had never been on a tour. We planned my bachelorette party there for this past weekend. We were all going to do a race together but when my Maid of Honor found this, we thought it would be perfect and so much more fun! We had a private group with runners of various levels but Marcus managed to find a good pace to keep us all happy. His historical and personal knowledge of the city was great and this tour made for a weekend highlight! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes to see a city on foot.
