List of free walking tours around the world

The 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.

As of 2018 there is a company called Guru Walk that offers free walking tours in cities around the world using their online platform. I don’t know how it’s all working but it seems like something worth checking out, especially if you aren’t finding a tour in a city you are visiting.

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.
