    We had brunch on Sat and then did the free tour after. Food and service were fantastic! Only waited a couple minutes to be seated. Had a bloody mary and the broken-yolk eggwich and it was delicious. The free tour was great, tasted 5 mixed cocktails during the tour and then purchased something from the gift shop after. We loved it so much we went back on Sun for brunch again. Had a mimosa and the skillet fried chicken and hoecakes, another fabulous pick! The atmosphere here is great, you must check it out!

    This is the only way you can see the beautiful dining room with its Tiffany windows and the ladies parlor. The tour guide today was Cheyenne, who presented the hour long tour with interesting information and dry good wit and humor. The tour covered parts of the building that was once the Ponce de Leon hotel. The hotel is a beauty with its glorious rotunda, beautiful courtyard and stunning ladies parlor and dining room with over forty incredible Louis Comfort Tiffany windows. I'm so glad I took the time to take this tour and would recommend it to anyone who appreciates architectural beauty and stunning craftsmanship.

    This was fun for adults and kids. It's short, but the tour guides make it fun. The history of this building and the hands-on experience makes this worth a stop on your trip to St. Augustine.

    This is such an interesting museum! There are a variety of items to see from artwork to glass to furniture…the Lightner family sure knew how to collect! Add this to your must-see list!

    This was the most unique cathedral we had ever seen! The colors popped off the walls and the history of this church is amazing. This place is a must see and it is free to go in.

    This was a fun museum and perfect for my pirate-loving husband. It provided great stories and the history of pirates. Guests could participate in a scavenger hunt which we thoroughly enjoyed. This museum is perfect for the whole family!

    Our first visit to this attraction and we did the self guided tour. They have so many different items and plaques with descriptions of different items in the museum all over. The overall feeling is creepy but it suits the items you’re there to see. Interesting place to visit.

    Old & young alike should enjoy this museum. If you're a senior citizen you will recognize many things you & your family owned & used &, if you're young, you can see what & how things were used back then.

    The best part of visiting the San Sebastian Winery is the rooftop lounge in my opinion. The wine tour is interesting, but the wine is not impressive. The rooftop, however, is great. While only open Thursday through Sunday, it is one of the most enjoyable places to be in St. Augustine. Parking is plentiful, unlike many other places in town. The food is very good, service friendly and they frequently have live music. I am a local person and come here frequently. I love their grilled cheese sandwich--the best ever!

    This is a fantastic place. It’s large. The rooms are well staged with period artifacts. The history is great. If anything I felt like I should be behind a rope when looking at everything, but they let you walk around the rooms. You can easily spend a couple of hours here looking around and reading everything.

    Be careful of bringing small children though because there’s too much that can break (we’ll definitely wait until our own kids are older to bring them).

    I was expecting a bigger area, more hospital that you could walk through. Understandably the guy giving us the tour/lecture did explain that many ages ago parts of the hospital where sold off and turned into something else like the restaurant across the street. There is a house next door that use to be a part of the hospital that has since been sold which is where the herb garden was also. Our tour guide was very informative in explaining how the hospital worked etc. The herbs that’s was used etc.

    If you’ve seen one you pretty much seen them all, but they are all somewhat different, but always a learning adventure. Since my grandson walked through an outdoor activity with the adults, it was now his turn.
    There are always fun facts that you have never heard before, but intriguing as well. I have been to several of these and they are fun.

    We really enjoyed touring the World Golf Hall of Fame last February. I was a kid during the era of Niklaus, Palmer, Player, Snead, etc. My dad taught me how to golf, and occasionally would refer to the golf style of the great golfers. ("Drive for show, putt for dough!") It was pretty nostalgic for me, and it was fun being able to hit the ball on their practice pad.

    The facility is moving out in 2023, and there is not much else going on at the World Golf Complex.

    Really need to take the time to understand the history of this church. We were on a tour and our guide was great to cover the past of the church.

    Take a few minutes away from the popsicles and Panama hats of St. George Street to learn the moving history of the early Greek settlers of this area.
