Jeffreay is one of the best tour guides we've ever had. He seemed to know more than the locals that were born and raised here. We did the cemetery tour and loved it.

Jeffrey really knows the history of NOLA and takes you on a great tour around the city. He is willing to talk about any subject and knows so much. I was very impressed with this tour and highly recommend anyone new to New Orleans take the tour.

We went on the 4pm Strange True Tour and loved it! We had so much fun learning about the city and getting a sense of it's soul that we booked the 9:30 AM bike tour for the following day. The tour guide was informative and entertaining. He clearly loves history and New Orleans. He was also attentive to the interests... More

Excellent tour company. Our family went on the Strange True tour one afternoon with Jeffrey and liked it so much that we booked his Ghosts, Legends and Lore tour the next evening. Jeffrey is an excellent guide and story teller who kept our whole group engaged and answered all our questions, even the ones that were off topic. Couldn't have... More

My husband and I did the Cemetery #2 this morning. Jeffery (our guide and owner of the company ) was beyond wonderful!! Full of insightful information and love for this city . They are a small company who only take out small groups at a time. This makes for a fantastic experience. We have been coming to NOLA for over... More

Awesome tour! Some other people had cancelled so we ended up having a private tour with Jeffrey. He shared many "strange" and little known facts about the French Quarters. Jeffrey is a very engaging story teller and possesses a wealth of knowledge on New Orleans history which he enthusiastically shares. Can't say enough good things about this tour. Totally captivating!... More
