Very informative our tour guide shared a wealth of knowledge. There is a lot of standing in the Voodoo Tour so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

Thanks Kathy for sharing your local knowledge on our tour. Great service with you supplying ice and frozen towelettes to keep us cool. Took up your recommendation and headed to Napoleons House for lunch.

Robi, our tour guide, was a delight! He brought the stories he told to life and had amazing first hands experiences to share! He was hilarious and informative at the same time. We learned so much about the history of this famed religion! No, we did not come away hexed and no one (to our knowledge lol) was sacrificed to... More

Sunday. 10am in the morming. Literally nobody that has been crashing a Saturday night (like us) is awake to do the Culinary French Quarter tour ! But we were committed and glad we were w/Renee! !!! She is super well educated into the culture of food. A real NOLA neighbor and a fan of honest opinions. Great combination when we... More

Free Tours by Foot definitely deserve to be ranked number 1 on TA. We decided to take a tour of the french quarter on Wednesday morning based on the stellar reviews we had read and were not disappointed. Stacey was a fantastic guide, incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Sadly we only had a short 2 days in New Orleans, otherwise would... More

So much more than I expected! Robi, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and so funny. He made the tour fun and because of his first hand experience with being a voodooist, he made the history come to life. This tour was NOT about what you see on TV but about the real history and religion of voodoo. Excellent! I... More

He was very knowledgeable and friendly. He used personal experiences and humor to keep everyone engaged. Definitely use this company if you take a tour in... More

GREAT tour, Robi is totally fantastic. Robi is a really engaging guide, he is so knowledgeable, too! I learned so much about the history and culture of NOLA and voodoo and New Orleans slave society and so much more. Robi's tour was so good, I hardly even noticed the sweltering heat!

We did a ghost and haunting with Stacey. The walking was a lot to handle with the heat. But the history provided by Stacey was amazing. It wasn't cheesy scary story telling but legit history of New Orleans and famous events that occurred. And of course at the end you tip the amount your comfortable with. Great thing to do... More

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.
