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.

Fun, Interesting and Historic tour. Even in the thunder storm, lightning and flooded streets we had a blast! Best tour in New Orleans. Jeffrey was so amazing. Going to New Orleans? Make sure to tour with Strange true tours. (Also took Cemetery Tour in storm. Was great!)

Did the City of the Dead Cemetery Tour and the Ghosts, Legends and Lore Tour. Jeffrey was our tour guide for both and he was wonderful. Obviously a history nerd (I use the term endearingly) and so passionate about the city of New Orleans. Would definitely use them again, especially to check out the original Strange True Tour and the... More

Jeffery does a nice job staying on time, is extremely knowledgeable. Quirky, sensational stories to describe the history of prostitutes in the French Quarter with this tour. There was a little bit about other historical pieces too.

Jean was our guide. She was awesome. We went traipsing around the Garden District and its beautiful homes and the cool looking Lafayette cemetery #1. Wealth of information and it was fun too.

What else is there to do but go on a tour to a cemetery in New Orleans on a stormy day? Great tour, the information was well presented. A must to do when visiting New Orleans! My lovely wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and learned so much. Who knew that way back then made so much sense when... More

Two of us took the Original Strange True Tour on our first afternoon in NOLA, only four in our group. Reverend Jeffrey was awesome, so many cool stories. From hookers, to politics, to JFK; he showed us so many cool spots we never would have hit. He is a true historian of the city. Took the Garden Tour the next... More

Jeffery was our tour guide for "The Original Strange True Tour" and "The City of the Dead Cemetery Tour". He was fantastic! Jeffery was very knowledgable, as well as super funny! These were hands down the best two tours we had ever been on. There is nothing worse then being herded around in a group of 15+ in a new... More

We had the cemetery tour. Andrew Farries was our guide. we had an absolutely wonderful experience. Andrew is engaging, interesting, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. The tour is very informative (if you're just looking to be "spooked" it's not the tour for you). Andrew was very attentive, patiently answered all our questions and really tried to adjust... More

Jeffery was our tour guide for the "City of The Dead" cemetery tour ($25/person) and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and its people. Includes Marie Laveaue, Homer Plessy, former mayors/politicians, revolutionary era folks and the final resting place of Nicholas Cage. Fans of "American Horror Story" and "Treme" (as well fun Nick Cage stories) will... More
