I’ve always been a firm believer that the best way to see a city is by foot. Walking through a new city gives you the opportunity to take everything in and observe gems you normally wouldn’t if exploring via a car or tour bus. 

Fortunately, there are walking tours for travelers who aren’t comfortable venturing out on their own in foreign cities. 

Here are 5 walking tours you should try for a different travel experience!

Embark on a two-hour tour through Nashville to not only learn about the music scene there but also the history of the city while visiting iconic spots such as Tootsie’s Orchard Lounge, Ryman Auditorium, and Printers Alley. You’ll be able to choose from a morning or afternoon tour to fit your schedule.

Chicago is home to some of the most impressive architecture in the U.S. The Look Up, Look Down tour will take you to some of the tallest buildings in the city while learning more about Chi-town. The tour typically takes two hours and is perfect for travelers not wanting to visit touristy areas. 


It’s easy to walk through New Orleans with its lively atmosphere, friendly people, and bars in the French Quarter. If you’re in for a little adventure, booking a tour with French Quarter Phantoms will give you the opportunity to learn about the history of New Orleans while enjoying a little spook. 

You can’t visit LA without getting a good view of the infamous Hollywood Sign. Embarking on the 2.5-hour long Hollywood Sign Hike will ensure you meet your daily activity goal while getting to see Griffith Park, the Griffith Observatory, the Greek Theater, and of course, the Hollywood Sign. 


There is always something to do in NYC which could be a bit overwhelming for first-time visitors. When in doubt, try the six-hour One Day New York City Tour where you’ll see Grand Central, the Chrysler Building, Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and much more. Most of the tour is on foot, but you will also be taking the subway and ferry.
