James is an extremely knowledgeable and charismatic tour guide. His personal background is interesting, having been raised Catholic in New Orleans and later converting to Voodoo. I really enjoyed the combination of his historical knowledge (in particular about its African origins and connection to the slave community in French, Catholic New Orleans) and his personal experiences. He really brings the... More

If you have any interest in learning about real voodoo, by all means take the free tour with James. He is a practicing member of the voodoo community and a story teller who makes both the religion and the early times come alive. You get to hear about the origins of voodoo and its practice among the slaves of New... More

I took the Marigny Tour this past Saturday with Free Tours by Foot led by Sean. Sean was very engaging and had a wealth of knowledge about the neighborhood. I'm from the New Orleans area and have visited the Marigny numerous times. However, now I have a true appreciation for the historical value of the houses in this neighborhood and... More

I decided to join my sister and her boyfriend on a Free Tour by Foot of the Faubourg Marigny with Sean. Winter in New Orleans is pleasant and mild. It was a gorgeous day for a stroll. Sean took us through New Orleans' third oldest neighborhood. He informed us of the rich history of the neighborhood while pointing out the... More

Don't let Joanne Hughes' Aussie accent fool you into thinking she can't possibly know about New Orleans and the French Quarter! She has a vast knowledge of information and related it it an orderly, interesting and humorous way! We walked thru the French Quarter with about 20 people in our group on a beautiful sunny day last week and are... More

I found free tours by foot and signed up the Hubster and I for the cemetery tour. We've been to NOLA several times but have not been in the Saint Louise cemetery 1 before. We had a great time. Kathy was very knowledgeable about NOLA and told us all kinds of stories and tidbits not only in the cemetery but... More

We did the ghost, voodoo, and Garden District/LaFayette Cemetery tour. I was expecting some college kids to take us around by the laxed structure but learned that Free Foot Tours is a NY company with strict rules and policies. All three tours were led by well informed career tour guides who know how to handle and satisfy large groups. Everything... More

We toured the French Quarter with Joanne on a gorgeous winter day. She provided lots of great information about the history of the city/state and the local culture. Joanne really knew her stuff, and was exceptionally friendly, and even encouraged us to contact her after the tour with any follow up questions or requests for recommendations.

We joined Joanne Parkinson for a walk around the French Quarter and found her excellent. The walking tour took two hours and covered the area of the most important blocks in an easy pace. Joanne is very knowledgeable, apparently one of several officially tested guides, provides excellent information and answers questions beyond her regular prepared program. She clearly loves the...
