“Above-and-beyond Customer Service”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Wow. We were looking all over for a place to rent bikes (halfway through the day, most had been rented). Little did we know, we should have just come here first!

Customer service was top-notch! The owner walked us through the best routes, gave us great places to ride, and was enthusiastic about events and attractions in the area. The bikes were in good repair, and the bike baskets came in very handy. Great prices, too!

Adorable shop, too! This one is definitely a hidden gem - they've only been open for about a year, so take advantage of them before everyone finds out about how awesome they are!

Don't forget to mark your hometown on the wall map - we were the first people from Los Angeles! :)

“Easy riding in the big easy”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We rented two bikes for 3 days during Mardi Gras. This is an easy way to get around town because some streets temporally close down for parades and it’s impossible to get around by car. The morning we picked up the bikes, the owners were very helpful in adjusting the bikes to our heights and showing us how the bikes work. They also supplied a great bike map and marked the best ways to get around town including which roads to avoid due to heavy traffic or parade routes. We really enjoyed the comfort of the bikes, which were easy to maneuver and had nice wide cushioned seats (important because I hadn’t been on a bike for over 20 yrs!). We loved cruising through the old neighbor hoods, seeing the old style architecture, a few of the abandoned home left from Katrina and the famous above ground cemeteries. This is a great way to slow down and really enjoy this city

“Highlight of our trip to Nola”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Crescent City. Owner Christine combined her love of biking, history and her native New Orleans to give us a very informative tour. She knows all the best spots and even gave us great tips for the rest of our trip. She included a few fun surprises too. I heartily recommend Crescent City Bike Tours. Meeting Christine and taking her personalized tour was a definite highlight of our trip to New Orleans!

“Fanrastic tour, fun and interesting.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This was the best bike tour we have ever taken. Christine is a pleasure to be with, knows the city inside and out and offers a unique perspective. The bikes are very comfortable and you cover a lot of ground and have a great time!

“Bike tour of New Orleans”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We've had several good experiences doing bike tours to get a view of a city and this tour guided by Christine was exceptional. She's very excited to offer insight into the historical and prominent features of New Orleans. The bikes are very comfortable to ride and we would recommend that you choose her tour if you want more than just a walk around the city. You see many more areas and all that it offers to tourists. Thanks Christine. We enjoyed it immensely.
