We took the tour in May 2013. I was drawn to it because it is listed as the #1 attraction in St. Augustine on Trip Advisor. I've taken many historic house tours in my lifetime and this one was good, but I couldn't see why it is the #1 attraction until the end of the tour when our tour guide asked us to rate them on Trip Advisor and even gave us a card with their Trip Advisor info on it. Regardless, it was a very informative tour and I learned a few new things. It costs money to tour the house, so if you're on a budget for your trip I would say skip it and use the money towards another attraction.
