“Bett than a ghost tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I had a great time viewing St. Augustine's darker past. It was a great walk and Alan (the guide) was friendly, knowledgeable, and charmingly over acting.
For $10 online a person I would recommend to everyone!

“The tour was the best we've taken in St. Augustine :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

We've taken all the tours, but without a doubt, for a great historical walk with spooky flair, this one was the best. JJ was a fantastic guide - kept us all entertained - and you could tell he really enjoyed the history he was relaying. Plus, he even kept us from falling down stairs and getting squished by cars, so you could tell he really cared ;) Price was great, and the tour was tremendously worth it. Highly recommended!

“U Gotta do this one....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

There are many options for night tours in this category (mystery, ghosts, history of St A) but 90 minute walking tour had my nephew and myself captivated from the start. Despite an evening of rain from a light drizzle to a full-blown downpour, our enthusiasm did not wane. Alan, the guide presented engaging TRUE stories of the "history, mystery, mayhem and MURDER" of this coastal fishing town. It was surely one of the highlights of out weekend.

“Super Intersting and Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

Went with my 2 kids ages 10 and 13 last nite. It was Alan, our tour guide and the 3 of us, so it was essentially a private tour. He did a fantastic job keeping my 2 kids and myself glued to his stories. We had driven up all the way from Miami and were very tired when the tour started at 8:30p. We forgot about our aching feet after about 2 minutes and enjoyed his stories. My kids even asked questions! Thank you Alan for a great ending to our first day in St. Augustine. Highly recommend!
