We did the haunted walking tour in the French Quarter. Very fun and interesting. We were lucky to have a small group with only 2 couples and a very accomodating guide. Who would ever want a group of 30 with the "Big name" tours? The guide-Jeff has done the research and is a great story teller- even answered alot of... More

Jeffrey is a straight shooter with a good, solid tour. Much research has gone into the information regarding the history, stories and characters of New Orleans past. We did the French Quarter walking tour and next time will do other tours offered by Jeffrey.

We had a wonderful time. Our tour ended up being very small, just two of us tourists, and Jeff took us anyway. We had an amazing time! Jeff knew all about New Orleans, past and present, told great stories, and really gave you the feeling for the city. I learned a lot about New Orleans from somebody who clearly loves... More

Thank you Jeffrey for honoring our request for a STRANGE tour of NOLA during MARDI GRAS! We overheard his tour in St Louis Cemetary No. 1 and i got his card, then chased him down on Dumaine street the next day asking him if he could give us a personal daytime tour. (as many tours were either booked or cancelled... More

Jeffrey had tons of interesting New Orleans stories and history to share. I highly recommend the strange tour for anyone looking for a fun, nontraditional tour.

Our Tour Guide Rev really made our Mardi Gras trip! We went on the Graveyard Tour and it was incredible. I liked the presentation--it was fascinating and informative, obvious that he was well read and well spoken. Rev is quite a character. He's down to earth, charming, and friendly; yet, eccentric enough to have a bit to say about everything... More

Took the Strange True Tour with Jeffery a week or so before Mardi Gras and had a blast. He was conversational, fun, and had so much to say about the French Quarter; cool stories you probably won't hear anywhere else. I'd consider doing a different tour of theirs next time I'm in town.

Returned to New Orleans last weekend for a visit to one of my favorite cities. First thing on our agenda was to check out Strange True tours latest additions: Bike tour and Oswald tour. Having now done 5 tours now (previously done the "Strange" tour, Ghost tour, and Cemetery,) I can still honestly say these tours are the highlights of... More

We did two tours with Jeffery, the ghost tour and the graveyard. Jeffery had passion and knowledge only someone who truly loves job and their city could have. He answered questions willingly and even showed us certain sites upon request. We realized how lucky we had gotten while passing other tours and hearing their guides spit out facts like they... More

This tour was excellent. Fascinating, and very well delivered by Jeff. Much better than the standard cookie cutter tours you often suffer, giving a great insight to the underbelly of this great town. It even ended on a quick discussion re the JFK assassination!
