“A Cut Above the Rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

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.

“Jeff is the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

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 it dearly, and it made a great impression on me. I would recommend this tour, and Jeff as guide specifically, to anybody who visits New Orleans. We hope to see him again and learn more about New Orleans and its special history.
Thanks Jeff!

“Great tour guide for real NOLA history buffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

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 due to Mardi Gras madness)
He even honored our request to cover certain offbeat topics.
This guy really knows his stuff and is very accommodating!
Highly recommended.
Thanks J!

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.

“Facinating and Informed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

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 from Voodoo to the JFK assassination. I learned so much about the New Orleans culture and quite a bit about the strange happenings around and within the cemetery. At one point in the tour, a man on another tour leaned in and said, "I wish that I had taken your tour." You could tell that our tour guide stood apart from all the rest. His passion and knowledge far exceeds the rest. Best tour guide ever!
