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... More

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

I am so glad I only paid $6.50 to do this tour, I was so disappointed. This should be called the History tour, because I did not get any information about mystery, mayhem, or murder... Our tour guide Wil told some interesting stories, but it was nothing like I expected. When we were at the city gates we were told... More

Fabulous tour given by Maggie. We enjoyed every moment of the over an 1 1/2 hour walking tour of St. Augustine at night. The price was very reasonable we took our 2 teenage daughters and their boyfriends on this tour and there was something that interested all of us. Great little unknown facts and stories. Maggie was very personable and... More

As far as tours go, this one is reasonably priced. This tour leaves in the evening hours so you are not having to contend with the full heat of the day. Maggie, our tour guide was knowledgeable and highly informative. It was a nice change to learn about the "dark side" of the history of St. Augustine which made it... More
