On a walking tour with Free Tours By Foot (, YOU get to decide how much you pay for the experience. Free Tours By Foot’s volunteer guides lead thematic tours in eight major European cities and have partnered with other companies to offer free tours in Europe, the UAE, India and the Americas.

Available tours include an East London food tour, a tour of medieval Barcelona and a Berlin Wall tour. The “free” tour includes only the guide; any food or goods must be purchased by the participant.

Tours occur daily, regardless of weather, last roughly two hours and cover about a mile. A spot must be reserved in advance, and groups rarely exceed five members.
