My girlfriend and I took a walking tour with David and had a great time over the two hours we took walking around the French Quarter. There is no actual eating on this tour, as David explained the best places to eat often don't offer samples. From Beignets in Cafe du Monde, to the pralines in Loretta's (in the market)... More

We did the ghost tour and the French Quarter tour. Both guides were excellent and knowledgeable. A great way to spend time and soak up the history of New Orleans. They're organized, on time, and very communicative via texting and email. I will use them again upon my return to NOLA and other cities in my future travels.

Well run French Quarter tour by a knowledgable guide. Not the most passionate delivery we have ever experienced, but learned a lot. Covered a lot do ground with a fairly big group (over 15). Decent experience especially for the "pay what you like" tour concept.

While in New Orleans we took advantage of Free Tours by Foot with a morning cemetery tour of St. Louis No. 1 and a walking ghost tour in the evening. Our guide Kathy was amazing and energetic while telling us about the history of the cemetery and its inhabitants with some very interesting facts here and there about the city... More

We have done the Free Tours By Foot in other cities previously and had a good experience so we didn't hesitate to book again. On our short trip to New Orleans we managed to fit in three of the company's tours. We did the Garden District / Lafayette Cemetery tour, the French Quarter tour, and the St. Louis Cemetery tour....

My husband and I went on the free walking tour of the french quarter a couple of weeks ago and loved it. Joanne was our guide and although being an aussie, she showed us around like a local. We arrived in the city on Saturday and did the tour on Sunday, so it was an ideal way to get the... More

We did the French Quarter tour and Kathy, our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her city! It was quite a large group but she managed to make herself heard and seemed to engage everyone throughout the tour. This is a give what you feel the tour was worth and it was so disappointing to see some walk away... More

I did two tours, the Garden District/Lafayette and the Ghost tour. Both guides were very knowledgeable and engaging, really made the tours interesting. They had so many stories that I wouldn't have known otherwise. This is an amazing way to learn about the city and I highly recommend this to anyone!!
