We had such a great time visiting For Menendez. It has a guided walking tour and only takes about an hour to see it all. Its well priced for families and the staff is wonderful. Its located about a mile north of the Old City Gates but well worth the trip. It isn't on the trolley stops but should be.... More

This time with our grandson who just turned 6. Both times the kids thoroughly enjoyed it. This time Amando was our guide for the beginning of the tour and then a female guide took... More

We loved this place. It was towards the end of town and so it could be over looked but it's well worth finding. We spent 2-3 hours interacting with the workers and trying all the old time toys and tools. Our guide Teresa was very knowledgable and she gave us gold coins for joining in. The kids loved spending their... More

A neat little stop in saint augustine. Easy to miss though because its not in the diwntown downtown district.... Little north of town, but had a fun time, loved the local cats and the tour guides were fun and interesting and authentic.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Everyone was very friendly. The tour guides are amazing. They go out of their way to make sure you are having fun. The kids who were on the same tour as us had a blast. A must see when you visit St. Augustine.

Our 2 children (ages 9 and 11) enjoyed filling out the kids booklet and earning a prize in the end. There's great history here and a beautiful view. It's well worth your time.

You take a boat across the river to get there. Great ride and something different to see. It is not on the top of my list, but still a must see, for the historical experience.

Of all the tours we did during our trip to St Augustine, this one was by far the most outstanding of them all. Our guide was Tearsa DelaCroz. She was extremely knowledgeable. She explained the history of each display. Then she let my granddaughter who is 11, do a hands-on each display, she got to grind the corn, weave a... More
