My friend and I were lucky enough to have a tour with Heidi, who usually conducts one of the ghost tours. There were only 4 of us and Heidi spun us some truly spine chilling stories of murder and mysterious goings on that happened in St Augustine, taking us to the places where the events occurred. We were more than... More

We decided on a last minute weekend trip to St. Augustine. The History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder tour was suggested to us after a quick walk downtown. One of the city guides mentioned the tour and we are happy they did. My husband and I have been visiting St. Augustine for years. There's so much history in the city and... More

We had two tours with Maggie and you can see her passion for the city. We had a brief deluge at the start but it didn't dampen the tour! Great value with Groupon 2 for 1

We (a couple from Germany) were lucky to get a tour all alone with our guide Janic. It was very entertaining and we got to know St. Augustine and its people (alive, dead or ghost) very well. In addition to that we were told all sorts of interesting stories about these people. We would definitely recommend this tour to all... More

I had bought groupon tickets for the History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder tour. I didn't know that I only needed one, so we got to experience 2 tours. The people at the City Walk office were very helpful and guided me through my mistake. :) The first night we did a tour with Arliss. The tour was great! The second... More

The tour was fun and interesting. Heidi, our tour guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. It was obvious she did her research. I would have rated the tour excellent, but they did not have a restroom available to use before the tour. When walking around in Florida you drink a lot of water so it is a good idea to have...

It was a dark and stormy night... Perfect for a stroll around historic St. Augustine while listening to stories about the history, mystery, and mayhem that transpired over St Augustine's long, and at times violent, past. Unfortunately, it was a wasted opportunity. The tour was terrible. Sure, I found out a couple of historical facts that I didn't know, but... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our History, Mystery, Murder and Mayhem tour. Maggie was our guide and she did an amazing job of bringing history to life. She had so many interesting stories, that I didn't want the tour to end. This was my favorite thing that we did during our weekend visit to St Augustine. Even our 20 year old son... More
