My fiance took advantage of Smithsonian Day where they give free tickets to different attractions. I am a native but like most I had never done a lot of the tourist attractions. the house was beautiful and the tour informative. I love looking at the old furnishings and learning about the history of those that lived there and the way... More

Most of the buildings in St Augustine were old and added to the authenticity of the place. Was nice to just take a walk and look at all of the amazing buildings, craft, paints and the like. Food was also excellent. Lots to see so can't finish sightseeing in just a day. Nice to also sit in the 'trains' and... More

A quick little tour, but worth it! Our guide, whose name I can't remember, gave us a very informative and entertaining tour of the house. We were able to tour the upstairs, downstairs and examine the Spanish, English and American architecture. After, we could roam the house and grounds examine things a little closer :)

We entered at the gift shop and was greeted by an employee. When we wanted to ask questions about the tour she was not there or did not hear us. We ended up leaving.

This house was great to walk through. It was an excellent history lesson and our tour guide was very knowledgable of the entire story of the house. The entire tour lasted twenty minutes and then we were free to walk around the property and museum. I would recommend this if you are in the area!

Our tour guide was the highlight of this visit as she was very knowledgable and entertaining. She took a lot of time to really explain to us the historical significance of different parts of the house despite the fact we were a very small group. I would say I learned as much on this tour as any other my wife... More

First time doing this tour and we really learned a lot. The grounds are beautiful. The differences between the first floor (Spanish) and second floor (British) are amazing. Definitely worth a stop!
