The tour guides LOVE history, LOVE New Orleans and are passionate about telling the stories of NOLA's past. They do an amazing job of linking past with present so that it all makes sense as to "how we arrived here". I very much appreciated that the tour guides Geoffrey and Grey are researchers / historians that use source documents and verified history facts to confirm their details. This isn't a scripted or canned speech. This is knowledge born from hard research. My husband and I were amazed! We took the Original Strange True Tour around the French Quarter with the owner Geoffrey and the Garden District with Cemetery tour with Grey. Both tours were packed with places, stories and details. Some of it jaw-dropping and screamingly funny. If you are going to NOLA, please don't miss these two tours. It is the best money and time you can spend in order to understand NOLA's amazing history. I especially appreciate the extra details on JFK. And to sweet Grey, when I fell over uneven sidewalks and scraped up my knee, bless you and thank you for having bactine and band-aids. My husband and I appreciate you both so much. Thank you!!

The tour was cut short by a terrible rainstorm. This was beyond the tour guide's control. Wish we could have seen more.

Our guide was very informative & she didn't let the rain slow her down and neither did we.
