Owner description: 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.

“Informative and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I went on the Garden District/Cemetery Tour with Sarah Vogue. Not only was she informative, but she was passionate about presenting us with the information, sometimes even breaking out into dance to show us how the second line is done! There was a lot of information to take in, but I felt that it was easy to follow and there was plenty of time to ask questions if you needed any clarification. Sarah was conscientious about traffic, other pedestrians, rocky sidewalks, etc and made sure that our group had a great time while being courteous to the people going about their daily lives in the area. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to any friends going to NOLA!

“Excellent way to get to know NOLA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

e didtwo tours - Garden District (Sarah) and the French Quarter (Elizabeth). Both my wife and myself thoroughly enjoyed them. Informative and entertaining though it could have been warmer for the FQ Tour - but can't be helped! Both guides were excllent and kept our interest throughout the 2hr tours.

“Great walk through French quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Joanna was our tour guide through our French quarter walk. She gave us indepth knowledge of the area and it's culture and history and best places to eat and shop. The fact that this tour is donation based and Conducted by natives makes it that much more fun and affordable

“Excellent NOLA Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I did three of these tours: St. Louis cemetery and French Quarter with Melissa and the Garden District with Denver. Both guides were superb, very knowledgeable, friendly and good story tellers. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting New Orleans. These tours are 'free', but you should tip generously, it is well worth it.

“Wonderful tour guides!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We enjoyed two tours - French Quarter with Elizabeth and the Lafayette Cemetary and Garden District with Sarah. They were terrific tour guides and were both so knowledgeable. I wasn't too sure how much was an appropriate tip to give.
