We recently spent a week in NYC and took 3 different tours with the Free Tours by Foot company. I couldn't say enough good things about the tour guides! Renee was the very knowledable guide for the tour of Greenwich Village and Wall street; John was extremely capable and entertaining for the tour of Little Italy and China town.
It is very easy to make reservations on line; e-mails confirm the reservation and give one all the details.

We really enjoyed going on two of the tours offered by this group. Signing up is easy and they email you back with confirmation and directions for meeting them. The Soho, little Italy and Chinatown tour was w Robin. She was knowledgable, entertaining and moved the group along well talking w everyone individually at some point. The Greenwich tour was w Renee and she too was as nice as can be. Both tours took us to side roads we would never have come upon if we did this on our own. Plus they both put history facts into their stories which helped you understand the why and the how of the areas. So worth it seeing the city this way.

We wanted to see as much of New York as we could in the 2 weeks we were there and discovered Free Tours by Foot. It was the only way to see Harlem in particular - safety in numbers! Our tour guide was extremely informative and answered any questions which the group threw his way. It was also a good way to try soul food, as that was high on my husband's list! We were pleased we tried it on the tour and not paid for it as it is not as good as we were led to believe. When the tour is finished, you only pay what you think the tour is worth. I personally think that is a better way to do it as the tour guides have to work really hard so you'll pay them more. It is worth having a look at their website as they do various tours from walking tours to food tours and also bus tours. We are going back to New York again this September and will certainly do another tour with them.

My friend and I decided to take a trip to NYC and I came across Free Tours by Foot - Onel was our tour guide for the 6 hours which included a train ride, walking, and bus tour. I didn't know about the train ride prior to the tour, however, I was very happy to have that experience. Onel was very engaging, knowledgeable, and funny. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to NYC for the 1st time!! We were able to tour: Central Park, Chinatown, Wall St, SoHo, Greenwich Village, Harlem, Chelsea, and much more!

Tour SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown with Renee to truly understand the people, places and politics of these colorful areas. Renee is a competent, knowledgeable guide with a real heart for NYC and the people who have made it great. She is skilled in taking a group of total strangers and having everyone laughing and applauding with delight by the end of her tour. Our tour with her certainly enhanced our appreciation for the people of this great city.

Another incentive, you book but don't pay gratuity until the end of the tour. Well worth the $25.00 per person we voluntarily paid for 2 1/2 hours of fun, education and exercise.
