The Heart of the City Tour will take you on an exploration of the historic core of the city. Starting in the French Quarter, we will make several stops to learn about the early development of our city in 1718. We will then journey beyond the Quarter to the city's three most historic neighborhoods (Faubourg Marigny, Faubourg Treme, and Faubourg St. Marie). This tour also pays close attention to the development of jazz and the colorful innovators who created it. Our cycling route will follow the excitement of this developing new music, while also tracing the early life of Louis Armstrong.
