Looking for a fascinating tour of New Orleans, filled with history, culture and a whole lot of fun? You've found the right one. This was my first experience with Free Tours on Foot, and after the wonderful experience with them, it definitely won't be my last. My girlfriend and I attended two this past weekend - Sarah's Garden District Tour,... More

We booked this tour of the French Quarter before leaving the UK on our holidays. This company was professional from start to finish. We received a swift email confirming our booking, and two days before we were due to go on the tour, we received an email from Natalie (known as Nat), introducing herself as our guide, giving details of...

On Sept. 13/14, my teen daughter and I took the 10:00 am voodoo walking tour with James. This was a memorable experience - which we highly recommend to anyone visiting NOLA. James provided us well researched context for voodoo, wrapped in vivid story telling. We will certainly take future tours in other cities with this company! James, thank you -... More

We took the ghost tour with Sean Chick. It was a big, fun group. He was very informative, entertaining, and patient. He was more than willing to ask any questions that we had, and took his time explaining each ghost story. My husband and I enjoyed the tour very much and would highly recommend it!

I went on the St Louis Cemetery Tour with Free Tours by Foot. My tour guide was Elizabeth Broussard and she was lovely. She knew so much about the history of the city and showed us all the highlights of the cemetery. It was a hot day and she made sure to keep us in the shade to be more... More

We recently took the all in 1 NOLA bike tour and really enjoyed it. We left just after 9 am and ended the tour around 1pm...You really do cover a lot of area but it's not overwhelming. Our guide, Mark, was really excellent. He pointed out things and talked like a real local and not a carnival barker. It was... More

On Sept. 1/14, my daughter and I took the 10:00 am voodoo walking tour in NOLA. We were extremely impressed with the in-depth tour, mainly because of our wonderful, knowledgeable guide, James. He is almost an encyclopedia when it comes to this oft-misunderstood religion and he passed on a great deal of information in an affable and often humorous manner.... More

I can not tell you how happy I am that I stumbled upon the website! I only wish I had learned about it sooner, especially since I travel all the time! We took the Garden District/Lafayette Cemetery tour with Sarah last Saturday and it was terrific. She was one of the best tour guides I had ever had! (And I... More

It was our first visit to NOLA and we had Elizabeth B as our tour guide for the St Louis Cemetary No 1. She was wonderfully versed in the information and was more than ready to answer any question you could think of. She was engaging and friendly and even helped the complete strangers in the group feel like they... More
