First time visitors here who did the Marigny Tour with Sean (great history), Ghost Tour with Terri (very fun & enthusiastic), and Garden District/Cemetery Tour with a dark-haired lady originally from Washington state who was especially knowledgable. Pay what you wish at the end - still cheaper than anything else out there. Very recommended for anyone.

I did the French Quarter tour with Katrina and she was wonderful. Even though it was raining most of the tour we still got through everything. The information was interesting and Katrina was able to answer a lot of questions. I would definitely recommend taking one of their tours.

If your ready for the history of VooDoo you will learn more. Enjoyed the authentic information, but took another tour and their were interesting tidbits I felt left out in Congo square. I wish Marie Lavaeu gravesite would of been included as well, but this was not the case. Overall, the best part was learning about VehVeh's and looking at... More

My husband and I took the 7 pm ghost tour with Mikka, and we absolutely loved it. Mikka was extremely knowledgeable, and had great stories and jokes aside from the ghost stuff. To be honest, I'm a bit of a skeptic when it comes to seeing ghosts, but he had me convinced by the end of the tour! He added... More

I took two tours, one by bike with Andrew, and one of the Garden District, by foot, with Denver. They were both great. Both guides were knowledgeable and friendly. They spoke really well and gave enough info to be interesting without going too far to boringsville. The bike tour was esp interesting because we got to see so much of... More

Melissa was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about the topic. She was very respectful, when talking about the subject, and weaved it seamlessly with New Orleans history. Voodoo Authentica is a must see.

We took a tour of the Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery #1 and were not disappointed. It was a fairly large group, but not too big. Our group was lead by Matthew and he did a wonderful job leading us on our journey. He did a good job of intertwining history and pop-culture and had thoughtful answers to all of... More

Took the tour yesterday and our guide, Sean, was very interesting, a New Orleans native and up to date on the latest findings regarding the history of the area. He mentioned a book he's currently reading and a lot of historical study he's done to be accurate with his facts. He clearly loves the area and keeping current. I would... More

I took three Free Tours by Foot (Voodoo, French Quarter, Ghost) on a recent trip to New Orleans and was pleasantly surprised! Each tour guide was friendly, prompt, extremely knowledgeable and fun to listen to. The personal anecdotes were entertaining. It truly is a wonderful way of learning about this interesting city. I will continue to use this touring option... More
