New Orleans Bike Tours 

Free Tours by Foot is proud to offer New Orleans bike tours! Like our other tours, our expert bike tour guides work on the name-your-own-price basis. Our tours are BYOB (bring your own bike). Most biketours cost $40/person and up for a 2 hour bike tour. With bike rentals as low as $10 for 2 hours, you could be paying $30/person and higher for a 2 hour bike tour (+tip!). Additionally, if you want to rent your bike by the day, you usually won’t get a discount on the tour.  We offer an affordable, pressure free tour experience in which, like our other tours, our expert bike tour guides work on the name-your-own-price basis.

Don’t have a bike?  No worries. Our tour begins from our partner bike shop and renting a bike is easy and inexpensive. Also, don’t forget, some hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfasts offer free or inexpensive bike rentals.

Cost: Pay What You Think The Tour Is Worth! This tour is free to take, and you get to decide what the tour was worth when it’s done. A name-your-own-price tour is a tour for anyone’s budget.

Q: Do the tours go out in the rain?
A: Yes.  Our tours go out rain or shine, even our bike tours.  However, our bike tours will not go out when bad weather makes it imprudent to do so (for example, heavy sustained rain, sustained lightning).  If we cancel the tour due to inclement weather and you rent a bike with our partner bike shop through us, you will get a full refund.

Q: If we cancel, will we get a refund for the bike?
A: You MUST give at least 24 hours notice of cancellation for a refund.  Please check the forecast at least 24 hours in advance if you do not want to ride in drizzle or light rain.  Bikes are rented through a 3rd party and we have to abide by their rules.
