Once again, a fabulous tour by this company. Today I took the Harlem walking tour with Lady Altovise and she was spectacular. She had so much local knowledge/history/lore and knew someone on every street we walked. She was interesting, great at herding us through the streets of Brooklyn, and a pleasure to be with. I highly recommend not only Free Tours by Foot - but Lady Altovise as well!!

5/5 the tour was a lot of fun, but there were a few issues:
1. It was very hard to locate the guide but we contacted him and he waited for us to catch up
2. Be prepared to walk a lot more than advertised. The tour finished 1.5 miles away from where it started and after walking for 2 hours, the trek back was tough.
Otherwise, our guide John was friendly, pleasant, and full of anecdotes- very knowledgeable.

Took the 2 hr Lower East Side Food walking tour with tour guide Corey. Very nice group of 20+ people, tourists from different countries and New Yorkers as well. Corey gave us interesting facts about the area, the food places we stopped and NYC. We stopped at different places for knishes, gelatto, cupcakes (or bombs which were big enough), dumplings, donuts, biallys, pickles. You can buy whatever you want or not. It was my first freetoursbyfoot.
I would suggest for this tour find a bathroom before the initial meeting place at Yonah Schimmel Knishes. The owner of this food establishment is very rude and arrogant and yelled at us for using the bathroom.

I booked the Graffiti Tour in Brooklyn and I definatly don't regret this!
Awesome views on different types of art and a professional view of it from a local Artist.
If you are interested in sightseeing beside the "typical ones" and interested in learning new things about the real world besides the typical spots for tourists - Book This Tour!:)

You won't spend a better two hours that with Free Tour by foot. I use them when ever I am in a city that has them. Great company!

We had Jon as a tour guide for the SoHo/ Little Italy/ Chinatown tour. It was extremely well done and he impressed us with his knowledge! He knew all the great spots to stop at. Was 100% happy with this tour!

This was a very good tour. The stops we made for food were very good. Our guide was very friendly and enthusiastic. I had hoped for a little more history of the area, but what we heard was very interesting. The only detraction really was the size of the group. There were 25 plus people and so it became difficult to keep a pace and to be close enough to our guide to hear.
I would definitely recommend this tour.
