Just went on Friday, with a large group of friends. We had such a blast, our tour guide Kyle was AMAZING!

This is the second time we have done this tour, because not everyone likes haunted house & scary movies, and this is a happy medium for all of us. Also it works for both people who drink and those who don't, it really is fun for everyone.

I do this with a group of friends from my school, so I have to take all this stuff into account to make sure everyone is happy, and this is just always a blast no matter if you have a large or small crowd.

Highly recommended!! Will definitely be coming back!

The tour is a blast, but your friends make it even better, so go with those who make it great :)

It was October 29th, a full harvest moon, which occurs once in every 4 yrs, so this was a special night. We started our tour by meeting Jessica , our guide & Jennifer another guide with the 2nd hearse. Our hearses name was "Frankie" and he had to let us know he was in charge. Jessica explained so many things to us and very clearly so that not only was the "haunting history" fascinating but you learned history of St. Augustine as well. The spirits allowed us to have interaction with them as well. At the British pub, Michael communicated through the K2's, and then at O. C. Mrs. Worth made her presence, we went to cementeries and I have some apparition photos, that are really impressive. I was so impressed with Jessica & Ghost Augustine, that I am bringing a friend back in January.. I hope we are blessed enough to get Jessica again.

Jessica was our guide on 10/20/2012. At every stop, 5 at most, she attempted to tell a story about something that had happened in the past. It was so obvious she was making it up as she went along. She couldn't keep up with the stories she was telling, mixing up names and events, so much so that the couple on the tour with us had to repeatedly correct her. This of course made for a most boring and thrill-less evening.The kicker is that she is the manager. Needs to memorize the script! $100 down the drain. I wish we had Tracy....she has lots of good posts.

Tracey gave a great tour. We were given a lot of city history , both normal and " para-normal". We were treated to some creepy activity at the light house, and light house park. Watch out for those swings! Riding around in the back of a " used " hearse was different , and I recommend the experience before you take a dirt nap ! It was a total blast and we would definately do it again !

When I think of a hunted pub tour I think of scary, dimly lit pubs with employees that are playing the part. Instead we got huge, well lit. fine dining restaurants with football games on tv and upbeat jazz music or top 40 hits playing. We only had time to go to 3 places on our tour because they were all packed, and ironically none of them were pubs. But I still give this 4 stars, because it wouldn't be fair to rank this lower because of what I think a haunted pub tour should be like. Anyways, we still had a fun time. Our tour guide, Curtis, was friendly and knowledgeable. He was also a professional magician so he had a few great tricks to show us during the tour. The tour just seemed more like a historical tour of downtown St. Augustine with a few stops at fancy restaurants and the occasional quick ghost story. I expected it to be cheesy and I was willing to play along, but when the only "proof" that a place is haunted is a picture with a white circle in it, I was disappointed (especially since I am the owner of one of the millions of cheap digital cameras that puts some sort of white flash circle in every night shot). But overall, walking through downtown St. Augustine and having a few drinks is going to be pretty fun no matter how you do it so you WILL have fun on this tour... Just know what to expect.

Thanks for your review! The level of scary differs with the tour guide and which route that particular tour guide happens to choose. Many factors are involved in picking the route of the night. The Haunted Pub Tour is a fun type of ghost tour when you have time to be inside each haunted place and discover the spirits for yourself while socializing.
