About Us

The Ghosts & Gangsters Tour is the latest tour concept from the infamous Strange True Tours of New Orleans.
History experts Jeffrey Holmes and Jane Dekovitch have extensively researched the local history in order to create
a fun, entertaining look at Ft. Lauderdale's history. 

Strange True Tours began in 2011 as the brainchild of Jeffrey Holmes and his partner Jane Dekovitch.
They saw the need for a smaller, boutique-type tour operation that could be historically accurate,
yet fun and entertaining; a tour that had smaller groups for a better guest experience.

Our Fort Lauderdale operation will take you along the New River for our
infamous Ghost and Gangsters of Fort Liquordale tour.

In New Orleans, our walking tours will take you around the French Quarter, into one of our above ground cemeteries,
or even further into the Mafia history and even the JFK conspiracy among other unusual subjects.

For Walking tours in New Orleans or Fort Lauderdale, go with the experts!
We make history fun!
