Free Tours by Foot is pleased to present the only name-your-own-price New Orleans tours. Learn much more than just Bourbon Street on our French Quarter Tour, about the well-heeled and their mansions on our Garden District Tour. Learn about New Orleans peculiar burial grounds on our St. Louis Cemetery #1 Tour. Foodies will love our food tours and everyone will get spooked on our New Orleans ghost tours. We now also offer bike tours and soon photography and bus tours. You decide what a tour was worth after the tour is finished. Pay-what-you-like tours are great tours for every budget.

What a wonderful experience! James was our tour guide and was top notch. He gave us a great historical overview of the hauntings of the French Quarter- it was so interesting! I was a little weary since our tour group had some small school aged children attending, but James was so professional and make the tour spooky but not scary... More

We took this tour because my boys really wanted to do a haunted New Orleans tour. At the beginning of the tour James said he would stick with history but as the tour progressed he gave "personal" anecdotes to prove the ghost stories. James had a nice way of telling stories but instead of leaving me wanting more I was... More

I am a native of the New Orleans area and was visiting with a friend. I took the French Quarter and Garden District free walking tour and was very impressed with the information and tour guides. The tour is free and you tip what you think the tour is worth. On the Garden District tour, Sarah Hester added to the... More

I was in town on vacation, and took some local friends for a French Quarter tour of their own city. We all enjoyed it and learned something new with our guide Natalie. She was very passionate about her city, and had an encyclopedia answer to every question anyone asked. I wish we had more time, I'd take more tours with... More

My friend and I were visiting New Orleans and ended up doing three of this company's tours and were very impressed. The French Quarter one was really informational. We went to the cemetery (which now you need a tour guide to get in), learned some ghost stories, and how Bourbon Street stated. The Garden District was my favorite. Kat was... More

We decided to tour the St Louis Cemetery and Kathy was AMAZING!! She really knows her history and makes all of it interesting!! Never a dull moment as we walked by many other tour guides who looked bored, unamused, and dull while their guests looked annoyed!! She went above and beyond to make sure we got a GREAT tour and...

We took two tours with Free Tours by Foot last week while our girls were in town for a volleyball tournament. David did a terrific job with both the history of NO and the background food stories. He knows his stuff and was a great resource for all types of cuisine, including recommendations on what to feed teens. We also... More

Two reviews here. One being how AWESOME of a tour guide Nat was, and the other being how cool of a concept Free Tours by Foot is. Nat was amazing at telling all of the stories behind the French Quarter. A true history lesson and none of it was really touristy at all. Made me feel a lot more informed... More

The first tour we took was the culinary history tour with David, the tour was very interesting and David was a great guide with plenty of useful information and a clear passion for the subject matter. To avoid disappointment it should be noted that this is not an all you can eat tasting tour but more an exploration into the... More
