It was a beautiful night in August- we walked to several sites around St. Augustine. At each stop several stories were "spun" about the history and possibility of spirits around the city. Dion is a fabulous story teller very interactive and theatric- no gimmicks. His stories are based in true history and they strive to be accurate and not misleading. Although we had no ghostly experiences. It was a great walk and lesson about another side of the city.

overall was fairly descent. dion was a great ghostly host. he was very theatrical at the sites. we took a bunch of pics. mainly lots of orbs, but there was 3 that had 'something' different. I guess it's up to the individual. I would try again maybe whenever I return to the city.

My 16 yr. old daughter and her friend had already researched which tour they wanted to take and this tour with Dion was their request. He did an amazing job! We all really enjoyed the tour. We all learned a lot of history in such a fun and eerie way. The girls loved the tour so much that they researched the history about the different areas that Dion "spun stories" about. Getting teenagers to do that just proves how interesting the tour was! Well worth the money.

A friend and I attended the tour as a last minute decision when the tour we actually had planned was booked for the night. Our tour guide was Dion and a gentleman shadowing him named Donny. Both were very informative on the history of the town and even had a few artifacts that we were able to view and hold. Dion was a great story teller and threw in a bit of humor along the way. All in all it was a very interesting experience. It was great to hear the stories and see the old buildings that had such an amazing history. We were in St. Augustine for my birthday weekend and history was the only thing I was after and after taking the tour I walked away very pleased. We did not see any "ghosts" however the knowledge I gained on what happened in certain places was enough for me. Thank you

Dion was a very entertaining and theatrical story teller. It's a great tour if you want to hear some spooky history of St, Augustine but not to be scared out of your pants.
