    Easy to get a hang of and great way to see both the French Quarter and other areas. Just wish wireless headsets were provided to allow for more commentary by the tour guide (who was fantastic)

    Josh was a great tour guide! The company made sure I was comfortable before we left. We had a fun group and Josh showed us many of the important sights and taught us some very interesting New Orleans history. I definitely recommend this tour!

    Much better than a walking tour because you get to see / visit more interesting areas plus get a better understanding of the history.

    My husband and I have enjoyed Segway tours in Austin, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Paris, and now New Orleans. We are happy to report that our New Orleans experience with Amanda as our guide was WONDERFUL ! We were able to see much more of the city and learned a tremendous amount of insider information along the way. Segway is an EXCELLENT way to enjoy a day in a new ...or even a previously visited area.
