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.

I took the French Quarter tour with Natalie Richard a couple weeks ago. It was everything that I hoped for - fun, interesting, and I appreciated that we learned about more locations than just the most popular spots. A really enjoyable time all around.

We took the Garden District and Cemetery tour with Kat as our guide. She was knowledgeable, fun, funny and gave us such great perspective and information on these two very interesting aspects of New Orleans. The next day, we took the French Quarter tour with Natalie. Again, the guides' knowledge and professionalism made us very happy we went with this... More

Fantastic - Dave Westbrook was a great tour guide - made our trip! On our second trip to NOLA we wanted to make the most our eating experience. We happened on Dave and his group - he made room for us on the tour! He gave us great suggestions, lots of history of NOLA and food. Most enjoyable tour ever!

We enjoyed 3 tours last April and 2 this April. Each was excellent. It is clear that the guides know the history of New Orleans and want to share their wealth of knowledge. We do recommend that you take the French Quarter Tour or even the St Louis Cemetary Tour prior to the Marigny Tour. You learn so much about... More

We enjoyed our tour in the French Quarter on Good Friday (April 3) because it gave us a way to learn about the area so we could come back. Our tour guide was a NOLA local and loved sharing the historical history of his city. This is the 2nd time we have used Free tours by Foot and it was... More

We originally signed up for the Ghost Tour and Garden District tour and ended up taking French Quarter History tour also. Sign up is easy- just go on the website and pick a time. Tour guides are very informative and enthusiastic. Be sure to tip the guides after the tour- they deserve it! Wear comfortable shoes. Best suited to young... More

We did 3 of the Free Tours by Foot tours. 1) The french quarter tour was fun and interesting. Our guide knew a lot about the locations, history and spoke clearly. The tour kept a good pace and spent the right amount of time at each stop. 2) The ghost tour had a great guide (I forget his name) but... More

We took two tours with Free Tours by Foot while in New Orleans. 1. St Louis Cemetery #1 Tour, in the morning. Our guide was Kathy, and she was wonderful! I really liked how we got to hear lots of New Orleans history while making our way to the cemetery. She was fun to listen to, had lots of good... More

We met up with our guides at the corner of Prytania & Washington promptly as mentioned in the email sent the day before the tour. Our group was large so we were split in half, I feel bad that I don't remember my guide's name (female in orange shirt & big hat). To begin the tour, she presented the history... More
