Worth the time and money
Retha_A, Apr 2024
Not only was it creepy/, it was also very informative. If you enjoy odd history you definitely should take this tour. It’s family friendly as long as your child is able to handle the topic of death. Our tour guide was Dion and he added flair and fun to our experience.
Not Worth It
Mary_G, Apr 2024
Be ready for cemeteries, info and quizzing over the 4 types of apparitions: residual, intellectual, poltergeist, and demonic...according to our guide, Hippie
It was fabulous.
Angela_H, Apr 2024
The guide, Madam Jennifer was amazing!!!!!! She was hilarious and so knowledgeable! I was pushing my friend in a wheelchair and she made sure we were ok and waited for us so that we could hear and see! She was a blessing and we will be back because of her!
Fun adventure
Kim_S, Apr 2024
Love the hosts they were great and everyone had a fun night we learned a few things about the city and it's past.
Dion: the Story Teller
Allison_S, Apr 2024
Dion did a great job telling stories and including parts of the city’s history. His stories did not sound scripted and felt real. He seemed like a genuine story teller. I learned some new things about history and St. Augustine. He engaged the group and was animated yet calm. He did a really great job!
Great! Informative. Entertaining!
George_P, Apr 2024
Hippie was great! Knowledgeable and great acting skills, incorporated into story-telling. Nice pace as well.
Hippie made this...
Heather_F, Apr 2024
Hippie made this experience fun from the start. He included our 11 year son and made him feel important. This was not only an amazing ghost hunt but also an education on the history of St. Augustine. Thank you Hippie for an amazing Ghostly Encounter!!!
Best walking Ghost tour of St.Augustine
JimFine, Apr 2024
We had Hippie as our guide. The knowledge of the area and the stories he told were amazing . He had everyone ‘s attention and interacted with us on all his stops. I’d highly recommend this walking Ghost tour
Hippie is one of the best Tour Guides I've ever had!
Ashley_G, Apr 2024
We went on the Tuesday night 8pm tour with Hippie and it was the best ghost tour I have been on. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain not only the history but how paranormal investigators would approach the haunting. It was a great learning experience and left us talking about it for the rest of the trip! Loved every second! He was amazing with every guest, no matter their age, and made it engaging for all! I would love for Hippie to be my guide on any future ghost tour I do around the world!
Fun ghost tour
Jessica_E, Apr 2024
This is a great way to get a little bit of the history and also see the city. I loved it! It’s a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes.
Not bad, just more history than scary
Chad_R, Apr 2024
Guide was nice and informative. It's interesting to hear some of the history. It's just not scary at all.
Barbara_T, Apr 2024
The sheriff was a knowledgeable storyteller. He was very personable and funny. We enjoyed our experience
Top notch ghost tour
david_b, Apr 2024
We’ve been on many ghost tours in different parts of the country and this was by far the best. The tour guide makes or breaks the experience and our guide Dion was cast for the part perfectly. From his Louisiana accent to his 19th century clothes he may have been an actual ghost giving the tour?
Hippie was a wonderful,...
Brandy_S, Apr 2024
Hippie was a wonderful, informative tour guide. We toured the cemeteries and the fort. We even got to watch a rocket launch!
Great Tour
Tom_S, Apr 2024
Awesome Calico Jack was great! He was super friendly and knowledgeable. We would do it again. We loved the tour route and going around the outside of the fort at night was pretty cool.
A unique take on St Augustine
Carissa_P, Mar 2024
Madame Jennifer was our guide and she was phenomenal. She shared many of her own personal stories and encounters with us as well as some of her own pictures. She took us all over the city and I swear our tour was almost two times as long as it was scheduled to be! I highly recommend this experience! My kids are 13, 15 and 18 and we were all interested the entire time.
Great ghost tour
Rhonda_B, Mar 2024
This was a fun tour and we learned a lot of cool history. The walking was just about right for our group aged 12-55. Great tour.
Fun with Hippie and his stories!
Allison_N, Mar 2024
Very fun and interesting tour with tour guide Hippie! He shared ghost stories and history of different grave yards and the fort!
Though the tour guide was...
Maria_S, Mar 2024
Though the tour guide was nice, the delivery was not great. They cared more about showing you crappy photos on their phone than delivering you a good ghost stories. They talked about themselves A Lot. They spent a lot of time repeating themselves and didn’t give their audience any credit, instead wasting time explaining very simple things. I think they didn’t follow what we signed up for, which was ghost stories, and spent too much time on paranormal experience. If I wanted that tour, I would have signed up for that. Said family appropriate, definitely not.
Not what I expected
Renee_D, Mar 2024
Honestly I thought this tour was boring. I’ve been on 4 others and this seemed thrown together. This tour advertised renting ghost hunting tools for $5. This was never offered. The stories told were mostly focused on the history of the city with a quick mentioned that someone ended up dying. In my opinion this was not a ghost tour at all.
