Testimonials

What they're saying about New Orleans Jogging Tours.

My wife and I took this tour last month on our honeymoon. I wanted to do something fun, so I figured why not. My favorite part was running on the street car line, which I noticed a lot of locals did the same. Our guide Mac was phenomenal, that guy really knew a lot about New Orleans. ~ Daniel Jones


I felt great after taking the jogging tour. The previous night I went out on Bourbon and drank a handgrenade (or two) with my girlfriends, and the next thing I know I was sweating it all out running through the Garden District. I really got a good feel of what it was like to live in New Orleans 300 years ago. My guide Earl was very knowledgeable. Not to mention he made the run very easy for me and my girlfriends. We stopped a few times for water and a talk. I would definitely do this tour again when I return in the Spring for my conference. ~ Rachel Quinn


This was the best tour I have ever taken. I think I literally ran through the entire city! Our guide Mac made the tour fun and interesting. He answered all of our group’s questions with no problems. We even got a much needed sprinkle of rain to cool us off as we ran. My favorite part was running on the Mississippi river. ~ Jimmy J.


THANK YOU NEW ORLEANS JOGGING TOURS!!! My Tour Guide MAC was awesome! I travel the country quite often for my job, and I always like to run in different cities. I was thrilled to find that New Orleans offered a jogging tour, I sometimes grow tired of jogging by myself. I was so glad that I was able to run with with some other joggers from around the country. Everybody got along great. After the tour I did not feel bad about eating a giant seafood platter and bread pudding, yum! ~ Nancy Brown


This tour was such a fun and unique experience. The guide was hilarious and knew a lot about the city. And it allowed my husband and I to see all the wonderful sights of New Orleans while keeping active, so that we didn’t feel as guilty while we enjoyed the wonderful foods later. ~ Mary Sylvetti, Wisconsin


This was a really great experience for me and my family. It gave us a way to see the city and stay fit. It was fun and the guide was really chill. ~ Cindy Johnson, North Carolina


Being a teen I didn’t think I’d have fun exerting a bunch of energy. But I found my self so absorbed in the beauty of the city that I didn’t even notice I was jogging or exhausted. It was a lot of fun. ~ Kelsey Harris

Sorry that I have not been posting lately!!! Because We have been to busy jogging… But someone told me that this social media thing was important. Over these past few months we have had a very diverse group of people. We have had people who were visiting New Orleans for business, and some for pleasure. [...]

Ms. Louisiana was a special treat to have on our running tour.  If you want to look like her, you have to run and jog. You have to get in some cardio. Lauren Vizza was born in Shreveport Louisiana. She has many many accomplishments and accolades, but my favorite thing about her is that she [...]

New Orleans Jogging Tours has been around for a year, and we finally got a black guy to take a tour! Not including myself and another guy I trained, Charles Young was the first ever African American male customer we have had http://www.flickr.com/photos/neworleansjoggingtours/sets/72157634775275546/. Why is that? I don’t know? I can only make assumptions… Charles [...]

As of today, New Orleans Jogging Tours is the number one rated tourist attraction on Trip Advisor (in New Orleans). How did we do it? Hard work, dedication, and most importantly, giving people what they want! Rain or shine, hot or warm. Although we lead the tours, we give the people what they want to [...]

We have been so busy lately that we have not had time to write these Blogs! After all we a runners, not writers. But who says a runner can’t be a writer, or a gymnast a playwright, or a psalmist a bodybuilder, or a teacher a student, or a lawyer an ice cream scooper… whatever. [...]

So you came to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and you want to take a tour to see the city.  I don’t think so!  If you want to see the city, you can’t take a bus tour, because all the streets are closed for the parades.  The city will be gridlock.  If you want to [...]

OMG! So I’m running with a group of people, and I notice an older gentlemen constantly rubbing his chest.  I did not really pay it much attention.  As he continued to do this along the tour, I thought he might be about to have a heart attack.  He then took his nipple out of his [...]

So today I ran with a marathon runner. She ran everyday, 12 miles a day. The tour was going great, we kept a slow but steady pace.  By the time we got to the half way point I was drenched in sweat, and she was not sweating at all.  I was not tired, and neither [...]
