During my visit to NOLA recently, I stumbled upon Jeffrey and his Oswald Tour after doing a quick google search. My dad being a JFK assassination buff, I knew it was a must-see while we were there. Jeffrey did not disappoint! The tour was easily one of the highlights of our trip, and I'm still digesting all of the information... More

Not only Jeffrey is a great tour guide but his knowledge is by far one of the best! Loved his engagement with us (we did three tours with him) as he was engaging and entertaining. Would definitely come back and do it again!!

Jeffrey is so fun and knowledgable. I've done the Lee Harvey Oswald bike tour twice now, worth every penny and you see all sides of New Orleans!

When my tour with another company was cancelled, I checked some reviews online and ran down the block to catch Jeffrey's Ghosts, Lore, and Legends tour. I called ahead and had 10 minutes to get to the meeting point - I'm so glad I made it! Jeffery took me and a family of 5 through the streets of the French... More

A group of my girlfriends took this tour while on a bachelorette trip and we LOVED it. It was so much fun and extremely interesting. Jeffrey is the best tour guide ever and I could have done the tour all day. If you are ever in New Orleans you MUST do this tour!!!!

Today my husband, mother in law and I took the Cemetery Tour hosted by Jeffrey. It was as awesome as I had hoped. Not only was he knowledgeable, but very animated and truly made the information relate to your own interests. He took his time to explain interesting tidbits and didn't rush through or stretch out anything. He covered the... More

Called Jeffery last minute on a June, Monday at 8:00am, by 9:45am we were led by Jeffery and riding, clean, comfortable, bikes around NOLA for 3 hours (having cold water bottles for us was a nice touch). Easy to find meeting point- he gave clear directions, walk a couple blocks from our hotel, took the cable car along the Mississippi... More

We did the ghost tour with Jeffery. Great fun! Very knowledgable and personable. We chose him over the huge Haunted Tours company and I'm so glad we did. Much smaller group, much more personal. Felt like we were almost getting a private tour. I also chose this because it was a small company owned by a local person- I liked... More

Just got back from NOLA. We booked a cemetery tour with Jeffrey and it was fantastic!!! So good in fact, that we booked the "Strange New Orleans" tour for the next day. Jeffrey asked us about some of our particular interests and added them into his tour for us (loved the culinary history Jeff!). We loved that tour so much... More

The Strange True Tours are a MUST in New Orleans. My husband and I went on the City of the Dead Cemetery Tour early this June and had a fantastic time. Our tour guide, Jeff, has vase knowledge on the history of New Orleans, the cemetery and spine tingling tid-bites on current day ghost stories. We’ve been on several different... More
