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.

Had never heard of Free Tours before, but after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor we decided this was worth a try. It turned out to be a great decision!!

Elizabeth was our tour guide for the French Quarter and she was excellent. We had a nice sized group - not too small or large. She handled all of us very well, answered questions, provided valuable historical information and kept the group moving. The tour was about two hours long and covered probably 1.5 miles or so all on flat surfaces. She tried to find opportunities for people to sit where possible since some were getting a bit tired of standing.

I highly recommend giving this a try and would use this organization in another city.

We decided to take a free tours by foot tour of the French Quarter of New Orleans on our first day there.
It was a great introduction to the city as Andrew gave us lots of information about the history, the museums, places to eat and shop,the parks etc. and generally helped us to find our way around.
After that we could choose the places we wanted to get more familiar with.
You'll need comfortable walking shoes for the one and a half to two hour tour, and we also needed an umbrella.
We thought it was well worth at least a $10 contribution and would highly recommend it to anyone with only limited time in the city.

We did a tour of Lafayette Cemetery and the garden district. Our tour guide was very entertaining and you could tell she really loved New Orleans. We were a group of six so we needed to pre-pay $10/head to reserve our spots. Overall great value and I would definitely take another tour with this company.

We’ve taken several of these free walking tours in various locations around the world and always enjoyed them. Steve did a great job teaching us about New Orleans history.

Went on a Saturday 10 am French Quarter tour with Kathy Harrel. Started out on time at the meeting place. It was a big group but Kathy was pretty good in engaging all of in the history of the French Quarter. Provided a condensed and interesting history of the area, made the boring history lesson a bit fun. Talked about the famous people of the french Quarter and their legacy. The tour ended up in the French Market by lunchtime. She gave out suggestions on good places to eat afterwards on which we did and was great! It is tip based so you pay at the end and it depends on your budget. But just to compare, we also went on another tour they night before but this was a prepaid tour, quality and length of the tour was the same.
