We booked a 3 hours segway tour to experience New Orleans in this direct way. Rod, our tour guide was very friendly, showed us many faces of this city and gave us at any location of the tour a lot of information we needed. We got a perfect impression of this beautifull city including a view to the consequences of the terrible flood some years ago. Thank you Rod !
