      Ghost tour
      Very entertaining insightful informatio n for the era. Dorion was a great story teller. We saw ghost. Groups were small enough to hear and you received great historical information.

      Kindness Appreciated
      Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip to Florida due to the pandemic - but I wanted to leave a positive review for how kind Dion was about it. He understood my family needing to cancel in advance and gave us a refund with no difficulty. In a time that is so uncertain, the kindness and understanding he showed was so lovely. We cannot wait to make it down for a tour when it is safe for us to travel!!

      So much fun!
      Dion is such a character. I could spend a week just listening to him talk about whatever comes to his mind. I was really startled that Dion included photographs of ghosts that other clients on his walks had taken. That was a really unique touch. Don’t hesitate to choose this tour!

      Great storytelling
      This tour brings you to ordinary places in the city that you would have overlooked yourself. At each of those places Dion tells a story and keeps you fascinated even as a non-native speakers. Very entertaining - thank you!

    We took this tour with Dion about two weeks ago with family. What a treat! It was listed as the best of the ghost tours in St. Augustine, so we chose this one based on those recommendations. Not disappointed at all. We had a full group, and Dion told many, many stories and shared photos of past guests which was special. He puts his heart and soul into each tour and you can see he enjoys what he does, always making a tour more special. Thanks Dion. We will always recommend your tour and, who knows, we may pop up on one ourselves.

    We went on 1/5/2020 while the nights of lights was still going on. Even though he had a a party of 23 people he maintained the group well and the whole tour was very exciting. Dion is a wonderful tour guide and I would pay to see his trip again. He went through the history of each stop we made and also a ghost story or two with each stop. His main priority the entire trip was everyone’s safety. I can’t say enough good things about his tour.

    Jessica many thanks for your excellent 5 Star Review it’s incredible!!! Yes I focus on your safety because it happens so dang fast- well I must make sure all is safe on my journey. You must tell the history to tell the tale. History comes first and ghost story, tall tale, or legend starts with its history !!!

    Took the tour with my wife and 10 year old twins. We love St. Augustine and all of the history. We sought out Dion’s tour as we always want the best. We searched through all of his reviews and knew we had to take his tour. We were saddened last month when we visited St. Augustine before Halloween and his tour was sold out; however Dion was extremely responsive to our request. Always answers the phone or text. We were fortunate to book his tour this past Friday for Saturday’s tour. I went back and forth with him probably breaking his balls about our expectations. Dion did not disappoint. Unbelievable tour. My only suggestion is because he knows the entire city and history that he offers the different tours he is doing any particular night because I don’t want to come again and get the same tour. My family enjoyed Dion’s tour and his storytelling. Will definitely hit him up again.

    Dion was very personable, warm and entertaining. He waited until we were all assembled and even though my husband has hearing difficulties, we could all hear the tales being told by Dion. We learned a lot about the history of St. Augustine and some of the infamous ghosts there. I am not a person who tries to get pictures of orbs or any of that jazz, but did have an interesting experience on this tour. The wind was not blowing at all and we were stopped at the old city wall area. I sensed a "cold spot" on my right arm continuing down to my waist on the right side when we stopped and listened to Dion. It was December and chilly so I had a warm coat. I wasn't cold anywhere else except for my right arm/side, (and husband didn't have any cold areas & he was right next to me) so maybe someone else was "visiting" us while we learned about the city wall.

    I searched all over the internet to find the best St. Augustine ghost tour and landed on this one, and I am SO glad I found it. Unlike other ghost tours that might try to “scare” you but only end up coming off as corny and leave you feeling ripped off, this one kept our interest the entire time and we felt it was worth our money! Dion is a captivating storyteller, and from the very beginning promises that - stories detailing the chilling history of the city, NOT cheap scares. He absolutely delivered on that promise and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you Dion, for giving us such a wonderful night!

    Thanks so much Kelly for absolutely amazing 5 Star Review it is awesome. I sure did not know when you search the internet to find a good ghost tour and I pop up- makes me feel soooo goood !!!! No Doubt I love this craft. Ghost Stories, Tall Tales,& Legends with a twist of history for without history you have none of the above. I stick to the facts- the beautiful history of St Augustine with 454 years of trauma and tragedy. Thanks again and don’t forget to order your Ghost Tour T-Shirt and DVD off my website under the merchandise tab. Dion

    Dion is a wonderful story teller. He keeps you engaged at all times, and presents with a kind, calm, and caring demeanor. You can tell he enjoys what he does and informing everyone about the history of St. Augustine. My wife and 2 young kids did the tour during nights of lights which only enhanced the vibe of the city. You walk the streets with street lights and businesses around you, so it's not too scary for kids.

    The high point of this tour was meeting a man dressed in all black with a top hat and a cane. Dion is a unique character with the ability to captivate an audience. Unfortunately, his tour did not deliver enough interesting information to hold the attention of my group the entire route.

    So sorry you feel this way but thanks for your terrible review. I do not deserve a one star review ever from anyone. Not enough information are you sure you were on my tour?? Please let’s reflect!! Massacre Bay = Matanzas Bay the lovely beginning of our city in 1565. Faye Shelton one of most interesting deaths in 1970. The Old Funeral Parlor from 1901 James Morgan at Tolomato Cemetery, Being Buried Alive at the Public Burying Grounds and Elizabeth at City Gates. Not enough information well try any other tour then. I hate you feel this way but some people need to get a life , enjoy themselves, & be thankful there is anything to do at all in St Augustine due to Covid. Have a happy life. Dion

    Dion was awesome! A professional, theatrical storyteller with detailed, well-researched material paced appropriately with highs & lows to create suspense with healthy dosages of humor. Formerly a wrestler, Dion has the background to make the evening fun. He’s very talented & clearly has passion. Great scripting & performance. I captured some bizarre digital images at one of the cemeteries. Memorable stories about the exploding body, the bodies on display in the funeral home, & the apparition of the boy who fell to his death from a tree in the cemetery. Fun evening! Wild ride!

    We enjoyed this tour immensely and Dion brings great energy and pizazz to the experience. The city is filled with ancient history and we loved hearing about the details. Slightly surprised there weren’t more reports of hauntings, but overall this tour was excellent. While my husband and I are in our 40s, the tour is great for people of all ages.
