My husband and I were visiting St. Augustine and took the History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder tour because of the good reviews we saw. The information was both interesting and good. However, I will need to do more research on a few points, as I am currently reading a book that has different information about Flagler than we were told.... More

I loved this tour! Our guide, Maggie, was great. She had her facts straight, which puts her above the majority of your guides. I'm probably a tour guide's worst nightmare with the amount of research I've done about the city, but Maggie hit it out of the park. The fact that she knew that Osceola was NOT a chief just... More

You have to see this. It's sooo interesting and the history is phenomenal. And the ghost stories and lore is second to none. I see why St Augustine is the second most haunted city in the states.

This was a walking tour that gave information to the history of the city. It was informative, and was correct information. We seen some of the back streets of Saint Augustine which I would not have seen. I liked being able to see the homes and gardens in the area. It was a night tour and made me want to... More

Maggie was great. Only the 2nd time doing the tour routed the way we went. She knew her history and stories, which kept it interested.

This tour was way too long. Our guide was doing her best to be dramatic but did seem a little silly at times. There was a lot of history...the same history you most likely have already gotten on the trains and trolley and everywhere in between, little mystery; mayhem... ummm and murder yes a few. We had to walk a... More

This is the tour to take at night if you want to do a night tour. The stories are true and some are really crazy. It also gives you great history to the city that you don't learn in school. If they taught this information in school it would be more fun. Not for young children

Consistent with so many other reviews on here, we thoroughly enjoyed having Maggie as the guide for this tour. From the beginning, she came across as authentic and straightforward -- she explained the tour without trying to oversell it, and helpfully explained the distinctions from the ghost tours offered by this tour company as well as competitors'. She was respectful... More

We saw a lot of tours around the area and were looking for one that didn't involve a tour guide in period costume or actors pretending to be ghosts. There's not anything wrong with that- we just wanted a tour that presented history and stories in a entertaining way, and this tour was perfect! Maggie was our tour guide and... More

Janis was super friendly, super knowledgeable about the history and very considerate of those who were unable to stand for long periods. The tour was awesome as well and I really enjoyed hearing about the history as well as seeing things we may have missed if they were not pointed out.
