As the oldest city of European origin in the United States, St. Augustine harbors a fascinating history haunted by the restless souls of its former residents. On this 1.5-hour ghost tour, you’ll follow a master storyteller to sites of reputed haunting: see historic landmarks such as Hugenot and Tolomato Cemetery, and discover traumatic tales from St. Augustine’s 450-year history. This small-group tour is limited to 15 people to maintain the correct atmosphere.
Under the cloak of darkness, greet your guide outside of the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse and receive a spine-tingling overview of St. Augustine’s rich history: as one of the oldest cities in America, St. Augustine hides numerous skeletons in its proverbial closet.
Your first stop are the old city gates, to listen to tragic and traumatic tales dating as far back as the 17th century. See, too, Tolomato Cemetery, an ancient funeral parlour, and Spanish Street, shrouded in mysteries surrounding St. Augustine’s first settlers.
In the courtyard at St. George Inn, you’ll stand on top of human remains and hear of how the local community endured terrible events in order to thrive in the present day.
Your tour concludes at St. George Inn.
