This tour is the perfect introduction to Alice Springs, contextualising and flagging so many places and events and helping make whatever you see or do after that more meaningful. Linda presents a highly prepared, knowledge-packed and creative walk which is engaging and entertaining from start to finish and is great value for money. Highly recommended!

When you've had your fill of gorges, red rocks, desert landscapes, river red gums, thorny devils, dot paintings and blistering heat, you might like to relax with Foot Falcon. In the cool of the evening, local author Linda will take you on an informative, friendly (and sometimes poetic) stroll through the fascinating history of Alice Springs and its colourful inhabitants.

The tour took you to places you needed to see. It makes Alice Springs alive with history and people.... Linda has written a book on Alice Springs and becomes your personal directory of all things iconic. Highly recommended.

This was as informative to a local as it was to a visitor. Quite a long tour but plenty of time to sit, enjoy the company and surrounds and notice the quirky and fascinating history of Alice Springs, its people and its buildings. Highly recommended

What a great tour! Linda is just amazing with her photos and stories Alice became so much more to us. Buildings, culture, weird trees, sitting in the 'upside down river' on the sand while she read a lovely poem 'written' by the river and its experiences. The garden where Queen Elizabeth stayed and was photographed. The steps where the famous... More

We all know Alice Springs has a colourful history, but few can share as many stories as Linda... the tour was absolutely brilliant and hearing the quirky, inspiring, little-known gems of history that you'd never know about without such a tour really made the town come alive. Thanks for 2 hours of walking around town well spent, Linda!

I am very impressed by the uniqueness of this tour, and no carbon footprint in sight. Invited beyond the predictable tourism experience. Poetry and local reflection as guided by someone you would like to (if you had the opportunity) invite to your dinner party. Well worth it - thanks again Linda for the experience.

6 stars (perhaps more!) I did a Foot Falcon tour with my father and can not sing its praises enough. Regardless of whether one is resident in Alice Springs, or travelling on business or as a tourist, one should make sure that a Foot Falcon tour is part of one's itinerary. Linda's journey through the town's landscape, with her assured... More
