Matt in the hat is extremely knowledgeable of the area, and is quite good at what he does. He gave us a fun tour around the area and detailed both the history and what led to the hauntings in it.

The guide lady was good & funny but the tour sucked. Lots of pointless walking and Waste of money… the stories were eeehhhh at best
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Thank you for acknowledging the tour guide, but I am not exactly sure what you were expecting on a walking ghost tour. This is a storytelling event with a mix of history added to it. We discuss the myths and legends of the town while adding personal stories and photos. All of this is stated on our website, as well as on all of our marketing outlets.

Tony was an awesome tour guide! The tour wasn’t a far walk to each place. Not too scary and very informative. I would definitely recommend this for families with young children. Our grandkids said this was their favorite part of St. Augustine along with the pirate museum.

Tony is an awesome our guide! Thank you for recognizing him! We pride ourselves o being family friendly and amping up or down the scare level as is appropriate. We love it when we get #kidapproved … and. Your grandkids have good taste… The Pirate Museum is one of our favs too! Welcome to the family!

Mike, “The Undertaker”, provided a great experience. Although it was an extremely hot and humid evening, the historic story-telling was interesting and entertaining. My group captured some interesting pictures during the tour (including a female face in the window of the schoolhouse) and my daughter’s phone stopped taking pictures at several points during the evening. I highly recommend this tour.

SAMANTHA was HILARIOUS
Mckenzie_R
, Jun 2021
This tour was SO awesome! Our guide Samantha was so knowledgeable about the history of the places we were walking to see, with respect to the people and experiences of the time. She included some of her own stories as well ass offered opportunities to share our own if we had any! She was fun and cracked jokes to lighten the mood. This tour was very short in distance but miles long in history and memories! I recommend this to anyone of ALL ages, abilities, and scare levels. No jump scares, no creepy crawlers, only a few encounters if you keep an open mind. Personally, I’d prefer a later time, just because the darkness brings about a different element and the places you go are GORGEOUS at night. 10/10 recommend for people of all ages, groups, and ghostly beliefs.

“SHORT ON DISTANCE BUT MILES LONG IN HISTORY AND MEMORIES...” What a fabulous review! THANK YOU! Samantha’s is the bomb! She really does a great job sharing the darker side of our city. Her passion and wit shine through as she makes a connection with all of her guests! Thank you so much for sharing your experience and for mentioning that we don’t do “jump scares” and kitsch. We would love to have you back sometime on a later tour, the darkness of night does add a whole new level to the experience. Thank you again for this review and welcome to the family! If you happen to have any photos you are willing to share (you and your family, your family with staff members, Samantha giving the tour, any photos of the old city, ... we love to see them ALL!).
