What visitors think about Free New Orleans Walking Tour?

We did the French Quarter tour. Very good and worth it. David very knowledgeable and you can tell he does know a lot of history about New Orleans. I recommend it. We were in a group of 11 total, and with good social distancing at each stop. David does require everyone to use a mask, which I appreciated as that made us all feel a bit safer

David was amazing. I really enjoyed the mix of architecture and American history. The knowledge shared was very enriching and provided so much perspective. Growing up in an area of the states where something that is 100 years old is considered to be antique, it is mind blowing to visit and learn of people, places, and things that are over 3 times as old. Tours this enriching have sparked a love for this city in my heart.
Eric gave us a fantastic and super informative tour. He was well versed on NOLA history, gave great tips, and interjected some humour into his story telling. You can tell he has a real passion for his job. He’s a sweet guy. I would definitely recommend the French Quarter and Cemetery Tour. We took a Vampire, Ghost, and Voodoo tour the day before which was fun but not necessarily factual. The free tour was wonderful because you really got to hear some interesting history which makes you appreciate the city so much more! He also paid for everyone’s entrance into the cemetery and showed us some really cool gravesites. Eric very much deserved the tip I gave him at the end.
