Great experience and the ability to see everyone in the group made our tour just perfect. The feeling of being well taken care of was there all the time. 5 stars!
Had the best time with Wes as my guide. I would definitely ask for him again if I were around.
Wes led a thoroughly enjoyable 33 mile cycle for 11 IP lawyers from around the world, along and near the shore of Lake Pontchartrain, with a po' boy lunch to finish. Wes was extremely responsive and helpful while we were planning, and along with fellow Velo guide, Sam (who also led), planned a superb route. All was laid on - bikes, drinks and snacks - and Wes and Sam were both attentive and great company. The highlight of our conference!
It's not everyday that you get to be taken around by a pro. Wes is a very nice guy. The ride was great and our group enjoyed it very much. Wes provided us with the rental bikes which were excellent and the support along the ride was best in class.
I had a great ride with Wes out of his shop right in the heart of the French Quarter. Great thing is that there’s a café that serves awesome espresso and tasty local beer. I was surprised at how easy he made it to get out of the core. That being said I was glad to not have had to ride on my own!
A great experience. I can’t imagine trying to figure out a ride in New Orleans on my own. Wes and the Rouler Cafe staff were very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely do this again!
