Grey gave us a tour of the Garden District. It was awesome and so much fun! She was super personable and incredibly knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans. She talked to us like a friend, which I really liked. I recommend her to anyone traveling to New Orleans.

Jeffrey is a very good story teller. He is an enjoyable historian. He involves the tour goers with the stories. He made himself available after the tour was over to talk about other topics such as the time Lee Oswald lived in New Orleans and the places involved with the Kennedy assassination. He was humorous which always helps with a... More

My mother and I visited NOLA and wanted a tour of the influential women of the city. There were no such tours available. I contacted this company and was informed they once offered such a tour but it was not all that popular. I was communicating with Jeffrey who offered to do the tour again, if we were interetsed. We... More

We were looking for a pet friendly walking tour and Strange True Tour was the only tour operator that could accommodate us. We booked the French Quarter Walking Tour and our tour guide, Grey, was very friendly, funny and informative. It was a very hot day and help us to keep in the shade for our dog. We had a... More

We were traveling with our two teen boys and did 3 of Jeffrey's tours. We enjoyed all of them. I especially enjoyed the cemetery tour and I think the kid's favorite was the ghost tour. They were all the right mix of facts with fun antidotes to keep they kids interested. I would highly recommend any of these tours.

Being a JFK conspiracy buff, I was really hoping I would be able to find a tour in New Orleans that would illustrate the part of the JFK conspiracy that took place in New Orleans. Jeffrey had just what my friend and I were looking for. We took a private tour with Jeffrey, who showed us all of the sights... More

Booked the Original Strange True tour and ended up being the only two scheduled that day. Woohoo private tour! Jeffery was an awesome guide! He had great stories and tailored the tour to our interests since we were the only two. It's a really fun way to learn about the history of NOLA. He even gave us recommendations for places... More

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.
