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.

My husband and I like to do bike tours in any new city we visit and Eric’s tour did not disappoint. Eric was also kind of enough to let us re-schedule when the weather for our original booking was less than ideal. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting NOLA.

Loved our tour with Eric. He was super funny and a great story teller. It was raining during our tour but we made the most of it and he even had ponchos for everyone. Would definitely recommend. A great way to see New Orleans while staying active.
