We've done two tours so far, last year with Renee, Greenwich village, and this year with Dante, Food Tour of Lower East Side. While I had hesitations last year if it would be good for my back then 12 and 10 year old boys, this year they asked me to take one of the tours themselves. Kept them engaged, curious... More

Went on the Greenwich Village tour this morning with Renee. This was our first time using this company. Renee was amazingly knowledgeable, friendly, and seemed like the kind of person you could just sit down with and have a glass of wine and talk about anything. I knew very little about Greenwich Village before today. Now I feel so much... More

My husband and I went on the Lower Manhattan tour this morning with Renée. Her knowledge of the history, people and architecture of the area is extensive and her commentary is entertaining and informative. I wonder how many New Yorkers know why Wall Street is so named? I cannot recommend Free Tours by Foot highly enough. Although it should be... More

My boyfriend & I took the Free Tours by Foot Ghost Tour with Alicia Butler & had a fantastic time. Our group was large but Alicia was very knowledgeable and lead us all through Greenwich easily while telling us spooky stories of ghosts that inhabit the area. This made the Village even more enchanting. It was a "pay what you... More

Great walking tour of New York's many districts. I went on the Lower East Side Food Tour with Dante and the SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown Tour with Katherine. Both were great guides, full of energy and knowledge. Next time I'm in New York, I plan to check out the Harlem, Greenwich Village Ghost, and World Trade Center Memorial tours.

Took 2 tours last year, now being back in NYC booked again a tour: brooklyn heights. Luckily I did have the same guide again as last year so i knew what to expect. The concept is just awesome: take locals being motivated to give you the best possible experience - the ingredients for a great tour. I can only recommend... More

We did the all in one downtown tour of NYC and it was fantastic. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable, fun and well organised. I learnt so much on this tour and a new appreciation for the city. We had to go on 3 subway trains but he managed to keep the whole group of 30 together which wasn't an... More

We did the tour around Greenwich Village with Mike and it was great. He was personable, interesting, knowledgable, easy to listen to and fun. The tour itself was really informative, fast moving with lots of appropriate and amazing stops and it finished on time. Mike gave us lots of recommendations for the area and we had a great afternoon there... More

I took this tour with a friend on Saturday, Sept 6. Alicia was very pleasant and knew her stuff. It was a very hot evening with a threat of thunderstorms. I got the impression that she was trying to finish the tour before any storms arrived! Alicia walked very briskly, leading our group that I estimate was about 15 or... More
