“Ghostly Fun Evening, Even For Teens!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Our group of 10 got to enjoy the tour as a 15th Birthday Celebration. What a fun evening! Dion was our guide and he was absolutely terrific! The girls were scared, entertained, startled, and more! Not sure who had more fun, the girls or the parents watching the girls! Worth the trip and the $$.

“Creepy, informative, and comical!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The ghostly encounters your with guide Dion was freakin amazing! He takes the time to get into character for the most optimum experience. The quality of the tour is multiplied when Dion verifies the stories he tells, along with providing facts about the locale and the people who inhabited it. I enjoy theatre and I appreciated the level of showmen ship Dion displayed throughout the tour whether it be through stories, history, or a well timed joke. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I highly suggest it.

“Dion's Tour and "A Ghostly Encounter" is always the Best.”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We have been on A Ghostly Encounter and toured with Dion many times in St Augustine, but in all the cities we have visited there is NO tour out there that comes close to Dion's story-telling ability and A Ghostly Encounter. Thanks Again Dion.

“Do not miss it!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

This was our 1st trip to St.Augustine. We try to do a ghost tour everywhere we go. This was by far 1 of our favorites. Our guide was Dion & he was great. All his stories were very interesting & very entertaining! Don't miss this 1!

“Great addition to our trip...don't miss”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We choose this tour after looking at others on the web and tripadvisor. I didn't want anything to "corny" or scripted. This was our first ghost tour and we brought along our boys (13 and 11). Initially, the boys weren't too thrilled with the idea of walking around so much, but it only took a few minutes for our guide Lee to get them mesmerized. The stories didn't scare the boys at all, but probably gave them a taste of "real history". The boys were engaged in the stories and taking pictures during the entire tour. We used St. Augustine on a stop to our trip to Orlando (Disney, Discovery Cove, etc) and the boys still bring up this one 90-minute tour and how they want to do it again. Bring something to drink, where comfortable shoes, and bring a camera.
