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

Jeff was our guide. He was personable and friendly yes, but he he seemed like something was on his mind and you need to be present mentally when you are entertaining people. I seemed like he was in a world of his own at times. The other issue with the tour was that he presented history in a way that... More

We did the French Quarter walking Tour with Jeffrey, having booked at the last minute. Fantiastic is the way to describe the tour. It was colourful, wacky and informative. I've never done anything quite like it and I highly recommend it.

Jeffrey gave us a wonderful and wacky tour of the New Orleans French Quarter. If you want to hear about unusual historical and current day stories plus see the sights DO THIS TOUR!!! I can not recommend it enough for ages 16 - adults. Thanks to Strange True Tours for a great visit to the French Quarter.

We were delighted with both of our tours from Strange True. We first took the “original” Strange True walking tour through the French Quarter. Jeff was extremely knowledgeable, personable, funny, and is a wonderful ambassador for New Orleans. He was sensitive to the fact that our group had an 11 year old and grandparents, and we all loved the tour.... More

The tour was great with good history and a great tour guide. Our guide was very friendly and personable and loved answering questions that we had. He also knew his history.

Jeffery, our guide for the Ghosts, Legends & Lore tour, was not the rockstar we thought he was, but he was an awesome guide! Funny, informative, and knows his stuff. I really liked our small group of 11 people compared to the much larger groups we saw while wandering the French Quarter. The only bummer is that we couldn't go... More

My wife and I have been on tours with Strange True twice now. A year ago we did the the Strange True tour with Jeffrey and had a great time. He is personable and offers a slew of interesting facts about NO history from various points in the Quarter. This year we returned and went on the Cemetery tour with... More
