Experience the New Orleans Private Segway Tour.

If you are looking for a little more exclusivity and flexibility with your Segway experience, check out our Small Group Private Segway Tours! With a tour guide dedicated to just your group, our private tours will let you see more and experience more without the distraction of outside guests.

The tours include a short training session in the beginning to get everyone acclimated to the Segways. Once ready, your tour guide will lead you around the city showing you the sites that YOU want to see and going at your exact pace. Though our typical public Segway tours have only eight guests per tour guide, a small group private tour puts you in charge and allows you to enjoy the city just the way you want to see it.

There are a lot of great things you can see on a Segway in New Orleans and luckily you'll have a licensed guide with you to show you the sites you want as well as give you a few ideas. But if you're looking for a few ideas, here's a few ideas of what a 3 Hour Private Segway tour can show you.
