How can we offer free New York bike tours? Well, it’s easy actually. Like our other tours, our expert, licensed guides work on the name-your-own-price basis. Our tours are BYOB (bring your own bike). Most biketours cost $40/person and up for a 2 hour bike tour. With bike rentals as low as $10 for 2 hours, you could be paying $30/person and higher for a 2 hour bike tour (+tip!). Additionally, if you want to rent your bike by the day, you usually won’t get a discount on the tour. We offer an affordable, pressure free tour experience.
Don’t have a bike? No worries. Our tours begin from partner bike shops throughout the city and renting a bike is easy and inexpensive. Don’t forget, some hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfasts offer free or inexpensive bike rentals. Also, if you have the New York Pass, bike rentals are included. Check out our Facebook page for photos of our New York bike tours.

Q: HOW WILL I KNOW WHO MY TOUR GUIDE IS: A: Your tour guide will be holding a Free Tours by Foot logo. EXPECT AN EMAIL THE EVENING BEFORE THE TOUR WITH PERSONAL CONTACT INFORMATION AND A PHOTO OF YOUR GUIDE.
Q: CAN YOU GIVE ME DIRECTIONS TO THE TOUR? A: This is difficult to do, as guests will be coming from so many different directions. Please use our Google map for directions to the start of the tour. Google maps allows you to input your starting or ending address (hotel, house, etc) and will give up updated and accurate walking, driving, and most importantly, mass transit directions.
Q: DO THE TOURS GET CANCELED FOR BAD WEATHER? A: The show must go on! Dress appropriately for the conditions. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. However, extreme weather will certainly cancel or postpone the tour. Please see our Facebook page for updates.
Q: IF WE CANCEL, WILL WE GET A REFUND FOR THE BIKE? A: You MUST give at least 24 hours notice of cancellation for a refund. Please check the forecast at least 24 hours in advance if you do not want to ride in drizzle or light rain. Bikes are rented through a 3rd party and we have to abide by their rules.
Q: WHAT IS AN APPROPRIATE COMPENSATION FOR A TOUR WELL DONE? A: Another good question. People always ask why we offer tours for free that our competitors charge $45 for. Well, we feel that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy a tour at a price they can afford, so just think of our tours as "name your own price". You let us know what you think. Don't like the tour? Don't waste your money! Love it? Then we appreciate whatever you feel is fair. We are that confident in the quality of our tours. How can you beat that?
PAY-WHAT-YOU-LIKE TOURS ARE TOURS FOR EVERY BUDGET!
