“Such personalized attention”

Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The tour takes you around the city down the narrow streets out to the Mission grounds and as far south as the National Cemetery missing no important historical sights. We stop at several places and at guests requests for photos. Try the original and best personal tour in St Augustine and you will not be disappointed.

“Such personalized attention”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We were 4 women visitjng St. Augustine for 3 days and it was just us on the tour. Whenever we wanted to stop for anything at all, a picture to take, extra time to ooh and ah over something we liked, hit the restroom, spend more time at a particular placePeter was very accomodating. I 'm so glad we were not on one of those big buses that we saw travelling around the town.
He was very knowledgeable about St. Augustine and we never would have been able to walk around and see all the houses and pretty sites. Highly recommend this pretty and pleasant tour and tour guide.

“Outstanding personalized tour of Nights of Lights”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We made arrangements to hire Peter for a tour of Nights of Lights in early January. It was outstanding. We got our tour and then some. He listened to our interests and took us a couple of places based on that. We returned to 2 of them the next morning before we left town. Since this trip was specifically planned around the Nights of Lights (we were only there 2 days) this tour was pretty important to us. Peter was also kind enough to pick us up and drop us off at our hotel since it was just the 2 of us.

Sorry for the delay in posting a reply but we were enjoying a well deserved rest
We always enjoy personalizing tours even a night tour . You booked a private tour and I am glad that it lived up to your expectations.

“Great, fun tour, excellent guide”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Peter Gold is an excellent tour guide and also involved in the towns archeological excavations, so his personal insight into Saint Augustine and history really makes this tour. The zippy electric cart is a fantastic way to get around the town and cover some ground during your tour. Peter this is from your Australians! Keep it up and 100% recommend this tour. PS don't take the red train tours - tourist trap.

“Unique personalized service”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a private tour with Peter as our guide. He picked us up at our B & B, so we did not have to walk. At the start of the tour we encountered rain, and Peter did a terrific job making sure that we stayed dry and comfortable. His extensive knowledge of the area allowed him to plan a route which would keep us out of the weather.

We found Peter to be extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the history of the area. We were able to get to places that a tour bus or trolley could not. He answered all of our questions and also gave us recommendations on places to visit, restaurants and bars.

We highly recommend using Gold Tours for a special, one of a kind tour!
