Although we've visited New Orleans frequently, this was the first guided tours we've booked and we are delighted we did. Just for the sake of timing, I'd booked the "adult" tour. Not that the content would be suitable for kids but it definitely was PG13 and nothing more risqué than network TV fare. Jeffrey was great covering the subject matter... More

My fiancé and I took the "Strange True" tour with Jeffrey and we had a great time. Jeffrey has a vast knowledge of New Orleans history and he made it fun and enjoyable. He was very cautious with us to ensure our safety and asked us what we had questions about so that he could focus on what info we... More

My family of 5 spent Christmas week in New Orleans. One of the high points was a private walking tour w/Jeffrey Holmes of Strange True Tours. His knowledge of this multi layered city was impressive and the subject content was exactly what we wanted plus he regaled us with so many colorful stories of the city. The pace was comfortable,...

Unique view with a great mix of history, fact, lore and legend. Jeffery was obviously proud of his town and has the history to share. Lets you know what is true and what is legend. Good sense of humor.

Our tour guide Jeffrey was awesome and had a vast knowledge of the city's history. He welcomed questions and rattled off tons of information you'd never get in a history book. It was our first visit to New Orleans and we plan on taking some of his other tours when we return!

Loved our tour with Jeffrey. We did the 3pm strange tour and having been to New Orleans before we appreciated the story telling and history aspects as opposed to the point to point walking just to sightsee. The tour is informative and fun and the owner clearly cares about his business and the city of New Orleans and presents it... More

Husband and I took both the Original and Garden District Tours in October. Highly recommend going with this company. Both tour guides were incredibly down to earth and full of knowledge, the price was reasonable and would do it again in a heart beat. It was our first trip to New Orleans and the tours helped us to fall even... More

I first toured with Jeff in 2011, shortly after he launched Strange True Tours. I was only in NOLA for 4 days for a wedding, so I didn't get to do much, but WOW! Strange True Tours made New Orleans come alive for me. I did the Cemetery and Women of New Orleans tour (in 2011). If someone had told... More
