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

We took two of our teenage grandchildren on this tour last week with Janice. It was very informative and entertaining. Highly recommend for anyone that wants a little bit about many aspects of St Augustine's history with a lot of family secrets thrown in to keep our interests peeked.

This tour is a nice diversion from the other story telling and ghost hunting trips offered. I very much enjoyed the current stories that have happened in this century. St. Augustine continues to be a thriving center of angst and history. I learned a lot. Janice was very nice, a little concerned about my kids and a filtering system for... More

We booked this tour specifically because it was focused more for the history lovers than the ghost-hunters. Steve, our tour guide, did an excellent job keeping us entertained and teaching us about the local history, lore, and legend. He was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure everyone was involved and having fun on the tour. A great time was had by... More

I was a bit skeptical about going on this because I never cared for history. Maggie made me feel so welcomed and inspired me to learn so much more and our history. She just made everything so interesting. I'm definitely coming back and I want her to be my tour guide again. She is so full of knowledge and you... More
