This tour is an excellent introduction to Alice Springs. Linda provided us with a wealth of information on the history of the town as well as helping us establish our bearings. She also made some recommendations on what to see as we ventured further afield around the town and these also turned out to be worthwhile. We had a great... More

I was lucky to be part of a great walking tour through Alice Springs this morning. Linda Wells of Foot Falcon gives personal, entertaining and culturally informative insight in to the history of the town and the people. A really enjoyable and highly recommended 2 hours of story telling and information. Great for newly arrived workers and tourists alike.

Thanks Bboom! It was great to meet you and show you around. You're right, the tour is great for newly arrived workers and tourists alike. It is also great for people who have lived here for some time. So many longer term residents come on my tour and can't believe what they find out and didn't know. So you possibly... More

Linda Wells knows her stuff and is a friendly guide on this easy wander around the CBD of Alice Springs. There is a wealth of little details which flesh out the history and development of the town and Central Australialia. Linda is able to place the features of the town and it's history in a broader context. Alice Springs is... More

It was an eye opener for me with learning about some of the history of certain areas of the town and how they developed. It... More

This is an interesting and relaxing way to end a day in Alice--a sunset tour with a guide who knows stories about Aluce Springs you'll never hear on other tours. There is no substitute for lived experience and Linda shares this warmly. Highly recommend!

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.
