My husband and I booked a ghost tour even though we don't know if we believe in ghost stories or not but figured it would be a great history walking tour and we might learn something interesting along the way. Not knowing what to expect, we arrived at the tour open minded and had ended up having a blast. Our... More

We booked this tour during mid August. Very hot and humid. It was wonderful. Robi is very good at incorporating interesting facts and humor into the tour and it doesn't really seem like a tour. It was impressive that none of us seemed to mind the heat at all. He is very knowledgable and answers questions throughout. Great tour! My... More

Stumbled across this tour on Google. Was the best part of our trip! Stacy was so charismatic and knowledgeable...the two hours zipped by. My teen daughter and I felt safe walking around the city at night. We would NOT have alone. More historical than spooky, felt like I was on an episode of Mysteries of the Museum.

We took the French Quarter Ghost Tour & the French Quarter Culinary Food Tour (tour for foodies). The first tour was with Kyle, he was very knowledgeable, awesome story teller & funny. He covered ghosts, vampires & haunted places stories. Second tour was with David, he knows how to make you hungry and besides giving you a little history, gave... More

We booked two tours - Voodoo and St. Louis Cemetery #1. Both were really great, and helped us better understand New Orleans, the people and the culture. The guides were very knowledgeable and familiar with the history and local legends. It was like getting an "inside view" of New Orleans. I do want to extend special kudos to Robi, our... More

Dave was MARVELOUS. More good advice on where to eat and what to do than you can shake a stick at! We listened closely, took notes, and spent the rest of our visit in New Orleans grazing like the King of the Krew of Bacchus! The moment you start this tour, you're advised that you are now a native.

The good thing about Free Tours by Foot is that you pay according to what you thinknthe your was worth. So the tour guides will make sure everyone was entertained. So, you don't get a blaise boring tour guide who just wants to 'get it over and done with' since he would be paid anyway regardless. We did the tour... More

My family and I (kids are 7 and 4) went on the haunted city and St. Louis Cemetery #1 tours. Both guides were very familiar with both history and local legends and had plenty of jokes to keep our minds off the heat. The nighttime hauntings tour wasn't too scary for either of the kids, but my oldest isn't easily... More

WE HAD A GREAT TIME Robi is a real Voodoo priest and a very friendly, fun person. He could explain everything about the religion, any question you had, and even demonstrated one of the dances executed in the rituals. He said he wanted to start giving the tour to show people the true nature of his religion, instead of the... More

Matthew, our guide, clearly knows the French Quarter back and forth. He was awesome, and quick with thorough answers when asked questions off the cuff. Very personable, friendly ... all around, a can't-miss tour!

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
