Description:

Ride with us at Confederacy of Cruisers, New Orleans original and oldest...

Ride with us at Confederacy of Cruisers, New Orleans original and oldest bike tour company. Going on 10 years of great tours and great customers keeping us feeling like the luckiest folks in New Orleans every day when we come to work. The tour that started them all and our others, the Culinary, the History of Drinking and our combined Pedal to Paddle with our friends at Kayakityat.

New Orleans is so more than the French Quarter and we want to show you what most visitors don't get to experience. The heart of our city is seen through its other historic neighborhoods on the Creole side of Town, the beautiful Faubourg Marignyand Bywater; and there is no better way to explore them than with New Orleans' original bicycle tour company. Join us as we take you for a bike ride around the old streets and tell you the stories of the New Orleans that most tourists miss. The ride is relaxed, with plenty of time to ask questions, and a stop along the way at a neighborhood bar where you can find out all you want about local life while drinking a delicious Bloody Mary, if you like (water or nothing are also fine choices). For those who want to delve a little deeper, we offer a tasty Neighborhood Culinary Tour and a Historic Drinking Tour (where you get to indulge as you learn), all travelling through our our city like the locals do, on easy to ride classic cruiser bicycles. One speed, slow.

This is a review of the cocktail cruise of the French Quarter I have only been to New Orleans twice, but I have fallen in love. In many ways, I consider Confederacy of Cruisers, my first date with NOLA. New Orleans is a boozy city, and a bar crawl seems to me a natural way to get to know it.... More

Our guide was extremely knowledgable and fun - the perfect mix for a great tour. We enjoyed getting to know a less touristy part of NOLA. Will definitely return for their other tours!

Lots of interesting cocktail and other history, as well as great drinks included with the tour. 10:15am may seem like an odd tone for a drinking tour, but as they say in New Orleans, if you want to drink all day, you have to start in the morning.

We wanted something new this trip and this was recommended by friends. We had our 32 year old son meeting us in NOLA for Thanksgiving and this was something active that we thought he would like; the Culinary Tour that Victor took us on was more than we expected......great afternoon!!!

I booked two trips with them. One was for my brothers bachelor party and the other was for my wife and I. Both trips were amazing and I will do this again next time I am in town.

We all loved the tour, it was the highlight of our trip. Biking through the city was an eye opening experience to the architecture, and history N'awlins has to offer. Derek was our tour guide. He brought the energy and experience we looked for on a tour like this. The cocktails and bars he took us to were carefully planned... More

Highlight of the trip is quite the compliment...thank you so much, glad we delivered what you wanted, but cocktails, our city, and the river always do. Derek gave your group a great review to us also, by the way. Thanks for the nice words, Jeff . More

The CoC bicycle cocktail tour was a highlight on my recent group trip to NOLA. Not only was the tour fun, but it was also educational. Our tour guide, Lara, was friendly, witty, and knowledgeable. Along the tour we learned of NOLA history and the significance of drinking to the culture. The cocktails were unique and delicious. Each cocktail had... More

Derek was awesome. Customized the tour to meet our interests. We had heard to request Cassady but he wasn't available. We were thrilled with Derek.

Susane, Even if you ended up with me as the guide, you would have been happy (almost as happy, at least) All our guides have been vetted thoroughly by having to be friends with me and occasionally have drinks with me about town, so none will ever fail you, that's a promise. Thanks, Jeff More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
