Our tour guide, Dion, was terrific! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and entertaining! He had our attention for every moment of this tour. We didn't see any ghosts, but we learned a lot and had a great time! I definitely recommend it.

“Lee was the highlight of the tour!!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Lee was our tour guide and we loved him. Lee has only been doing tours for a few moths and Dion said he was one of the few that he would take under his wing. Lee is from the UK and has all kinds of stories of how sayings and stories came about. He told us so much history on how St. Augustine was before and over time till present day. We learned so much from his stories and he is a really fun person. It started to lightly rain and he kept on with the tour even in the rain. I have been on many ghost tours and this is one of the best.

I have done many of the ghost tours but this one was worth repeating. Dion was outragous as was the walk. Dion made you feel like it was only the two of you on the walk when there was reallyb20. The walk was so enjoyable I did it for both nights that I was there. Not to be missed. The absolute best attraction in St. Augustine!

“Dion is a Riot”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had a great time on our ghost tour. Dion was hilarious and kept the crowd laughing and told great stories of the city and even showed off his amazing dance moves! There are never any guarantees with seeing ghost or capturing them on camera. We did capture one orb and it was in a very interesting place, between Dions legs lol....I would def do this tour again and request Dion as our guide!
