List of free walking tours around the world

London Free Walking TourThe trend of ‘free' walking tours appears to have started in Berlin in 2004 and has now spread to over 40 cities around the world, including nearly every major tourist destination in Europe. Fad or not, free walking tours seem to be here to stay, so we thought it would be helpful to collect a list of them all in one place.

The fine people at Free Sofia Tour compiled this original list and with their permission I'm including it here as well so value-oriented travelers have more chances of finding these tours and even planning their trips around them.

The tour guides work on tips and participants are free to tip as much or little as they think is appropriate, so they are a great first activity and orientation in a city on literally any budget.

Free walking tours by city

If you know of additional free walking tours or find that any on this list no longer offers the tours, please let us know so we can keep this list up to date.

Diane Dalgleish says:

The Mayor of Bath’s Corps of Honorary Guides give free walking tours around the Georgian City of Bath, England. Walks are around 2hours long, lots to take in – the architecture, Jane Austen associations, also site of Roman Baths and Medieval Abbey. Details here:
And a taster in our Interactive Postcard from Bath:
with commentaries from Mayor’s Guide Kirsten Elliot and others.

(Thank you for this. It’s now been added to the main list. Unlike the others, this one takes quite a bit of reading to discover that the tours are not only free, but the guides don’t accept tips either. It might be worth making that more clear. -Roger)

Rachele says:

This is one of the most interesting lists I ever read online! Thanks for sharing. Too bad Milan, the city where I live, doesn’t offer free walking tours.

We are cruising (arriving in Rome on April 27 2014), to the Baltic, spending one day in each town, and wondered if there are any free walking tours for the following places:
Cartagena, Cadiz (Seville), Vigo (Spain), Gibraltar, Portland (UK) , Cherbourg (France), Zeebrugge (Belgium), Tallin (Estonia), Helsinki (Finland), Stockholm (Sweden), Kiel and Warnemunde (Germany). If there are free walking tours available, could you please tell us, as soon as possible, on which days the tours take place, and give us some details of where to meet etc… Many thanks.

    Roger Wade says:


    Sorry, but I’m not aware of any free walking tours other than the ones listed in the article above. Your best bet is to just Google “(city name) free walking tour” and if there is one, it will probably be the top result. Some of these new tours have already stopped operating, so look closely to make sure about any of them before you go to the meeting point. -Roger

p. Lechowski says:

Hey, I wrote last time at 10.01.2013 about tours in Warsaw and Wrocław. We have new website with all tours in 3 cities we operate in. It works for all 3 cities (as well Krakow). Old links that are here now do not work any more.

The tour is conducted in English and run every Tuesday till Saturday morning from the May 1St to September 30th. The tour starts at Massena Square Fountain at 11:30AM, and lasts for about 2 and a half hours. Our guide wear a red T-Shirt and they will welcome you.

The free walking tour of Old Nice takes you past the –Massena square fountain, into the Cours Saleya market past the Opera House, Rossetti square and explores the narrow pedestrianised streets of the Old Town finishing in castle Hill for a Picnic.

unfortunately the link you published for Marrakesh lead to “Marrakesh by locals” and tour costs 30 € per person. There is no free walking tour, so maybe you should delete that.
