My wife and I were lucky to pick an off time and be the only ones on the tour with Jeffrey. As other reviewers have noted, Jeffrey does a great tour - keeps the groups small, finds out what your interests are, and tailors the tour to your interests. He is a wealth of information and a great story-teller. We... More

We took the Strange True and Ghost tours with Jeffrey as our guide. As others have said, he really knows his stuff and it's obvious that he loves the city of New Orleans. On both tours, we would walk a bit then stop (in shade during the daytime) and he would tell a story while pointing out buildings of interest.... More

Jeffrey led us in an incredible well paced tour into the world of Lee Harvey during his time in New Orleans. Amazingly this "defector" was able to move about freely amongst several Federal agencies without issues. Jeffrey walked us by locations involved with the many faceted contributors to Oswalds "conspiracy" to kill President Kennedy. He shared stories involving many activities... More

We went on the graveyard and french quarter walking tour with Jane as our guide. Lucky for us it was a quiet week in New Orleans and we were the only people on the tour so it was quite nice to have a private tour. It was also a beautiful sunny day and since it started at 10 am it... More

I have gone on walking tours of cities around the world. From Old San Juan to London to Rome. All of the previous tours have been by people just doing a job and reading a script by memory. Jeffery gave me the walking tour I have been waiting for. He was knowledgeable beyond the main history talking points. In fact... More

Despite occasional torrential downpours and high winds, eight friends enjoyed the informative tour of the Garden District lead by Grey. She gave a delightful overview of the history and architecture of this New Orleans neighborhood all the while keeping our safety (and comfort!) in mind as we toured on a Monday morning when N.O. was under a "tornado watch." Although... More

I went on this tour with 8 friends. We had a great time, and we loved Jeffry's stories. I would definitely recommend taking the tour; Jeffrey really knows his history and keeps you engaged the entire time.The only thing that was a little disappointing was the fact that we didn't walk more. We walked a little, then stood or sat... More

Jeffrey was amazing! If you're ever there and want an uncensored tour of New Orleans' rich history, Jeffrey is the tour guy for you! He's not decked out in some cheesy costume or hiding in some fake persona, nor is he herding some huge crowd of tourists down the streets of NOLA like many other tour guides. He's a real... More

My six buddies and I took the Ghosts, Legends and Lore tour one evening and the City of the Dead Cemetery Tour the next afternoon (the latter of which was a private tour for us). Both were very interesting and entertaining. Jeffrey, our guide (and owner of Strange True Tours) didn't miss a beat. He's got it all down and... More

It was just the six of us in our party - Jeffrey was awesome. With ages ranging from 29 to 66 we were all totally interested in the details that Jeffrey shared with us - there was something for everyone! Seriously- you should do this tour. His knowledge is awesome, he engages the group and everyone loved it.
