What you'll do

Journey into Mid-City New Orleans! Embarking from the historic core of the city, the Creole Odyssey traces the city's expansion into its surrounding bayous. Enjoy an extended ride under the shade of regal Live Oak trees as we journey down the opulent Esplanade Avenue. After visiting St. Louis Cemetery #3, you will cruise past swampy vistas in City Park. You'll traverse Bayou St. John, a historic waterway that was used by Native Americans and French settlers alike, and learn why it was so instrumental in our city's founding.

In and out of the port of New Orleans, Eric is a descendent of French pirates who sailed the high seas of the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Even in recent generations, both his maternal and paternal grandfathers worked in the port of New Orleans importing fruit from the Caribbean and Latin America. Being the first land lover in his family, he traded in the helm for handle bars.

A native of New Orleans, Eric posses a knowledge of the city that exceeds research, he is a product of its culture. From rolling in Mardi Gras parades in his youth, getting his first high school job as a beignet chef at Cafe du Monde, and being steeped in our city's customs his whole life. He not only lives in New Orleans - New Orleans lives in him. Eric's tours are well rounded and offer both the better and lesser known narratives of New Orleans history.

Eric is an expert on the history and culture of NOLA and his insider knowledge made this tour unique. There is nothing better than spending a few hours in the company of an enthusiastic local who genuinely loves the place he calls home and this coupled with Eric’s warmth and authenticity made the tour an experience I’d recommend to everyone.

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting New Orleans! We really enjoyed our tour with Eric. He was friendly and knew the area and the bikes very well. Very interesting historical facts. It was a more leisurely ride, but still a solid 3 hours of biking. It was an awesome way to learn more about the area! I explored parts of New Orleans that I probably wouldn't have seen otherwise. Totally worth the money.
