A fabulous Tour with Calen! Very knowledgable and personable! Made the charming Museum House come alive! We can't wait To go back!
Every effort made by the "Dames" historical group to bring the past to life. Very well done! Upper floor exhibit requires stairs that can be a little tricky for some. But still lots to see at ground level. We take oor visitors to this all the time.
We really enjoyed our visit to the Ximenez-Fatio House. The site is well-maintained and they are continually improving the property. Our tour guide, Brad, was encyclopedic in his knowledge of not only the Ximenez-Fatio House, but other sites in St Augustine and the general history of the area. This tour was very worthwhile and our whole family enjoyed it. We... More
The tour was overpriced but OK. The guide was nice and friendly and showed us around each room. It was interesting and it's great they are preserving the home.
The tour is one hour and jam packed on interesting artifacts. The tour guide is a wealth of information. I loved this place
My brownie troop attended the Living History tour sponsored by the Gateway Girl Scout Council. They had Girl Scout docents who portrayed the occupants of the boarding house.

I liked that things were not "fancied up" beyond what they would have been like when people were there. I liked... More
One of the highlights of our time in St. Augustine. Calen, our tour guide is exceptional and did a wonderful job of relating the history, not only of this attraction, but of St. Augustine and the state of Florida. The tour lasts approximately one hour, is well designed, and extremely interesting. The effort made to preserve the property is quite... More
I left this tour feeling like I had just been taken back in time. Named for the first (Andres Ximenez) and last (Louisa Fatio) owners, this boarding house tour gives you a glimpse into who the 19th century travelers to this St. Augustine inn might have been and how they lived during their stay there. Our tour guide was not... More
We stopped by this past week and toured the Ximenez - Fatio house. It was worth the wait. They opened at 11 so we had some time to kill first, but it was worth the effort to return for a tour. I can see why it is usually #1 on TripAdvisor. A wealth of detailed information and a close up... More
