New Orleans Jogging Tours
“Today was a little weird,” begins one of New Orleans Jogging Tours’ guides in a blog entry. “Every time we stopped to talk about the houses in the Garden District, a lizard jumped out!” This rare bahama anole isn’t the only outlandish sight jogging tourists have encountered on the 10-kilometer jaunts. The bouncing periphery of tour routes is frequently peppered with unexpected encounters, such as late-night Bourbon Street revelers or trees costumed with Mardi Gras beads well after Fat Tuesday. All New Orleans natives, the guides are primed to run the routes but keep pace with their charges, even if that means leisurely strolling or cartwheeling through historic areas such as the French Quarter, cemetery, and Garden District. Each section houses morsels of historical and cultural significance, from the St. Louis Cathedral and Civil War Museum to the homes of Sandra Bullock and a former Real World cast. Guides can stow smaller items in a backpack they bring along, but suggest that joggers tow personal backpacks for larger cargo.

“Excellent service, great way to tour the city - a nice change from the Bourbon St. scene. I was initially concerned about not being able to go through the entire 10 K, but the guide was extremely nice and kept the conversation going, so in the end, I was surprised to realize that 90 minutes had gone by! I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting New Orleans!”
