Very fun and worth the money

This ghost train tour is very fun and informative. Our guide was very believable. We went on the 9:15 pm tour and it was nearly a two hour trip. We went o the Florida museum and... read more

Waste of money. Having a hard time understanding why this got so many good reviews. Very boring. I'm pretty sure the rest of the group felt the same. You walk around the museum in the dark and listen to stories.

My husband and I did this tour and had a fun time exploring for ghosts. This tour is not a theatrical tour like some others. They give you an EMF meter and a laser and let you explore some cool areas. The stories are very intriguing and interesting. Our guide Jill was awesome!! She had a great personality and was... More

I went in thinking it would be hokey, but it wasn't. Scott was our tour guide, and he is the man you have to request! He takes it seriously, and his excitement is contagious. While in the theater room in Ripley's, I took a picture of what looks like a woman standing in the corner. It was very creepy. If... More

In 2008 my family had taken the Ripley's Ghost Train ride. The stops were interesting, we had time to wander around, and it was a generally quiet, fun time. Now (April, 2017) we've returned to Saint Augustine and were absolutely appalled at what it's become. The groups taken around the tour are too large- there was an excessive amount of... More

Would highly recommend taking this tour! A lot of history was included in the tour and our tour guide, Scott was amazing, very knowledgeable, friendly, and kept everyone engaged the entire time. When we travel again we would request Scott as our tour guide! Keep up the great work!

There was an actress at the park which kind of ruined it. Everyone's pictures of orbs and such were very cool... More

Good ghost tour, I've been on a few and this one was fun. Great tour guides and the last part inside Ripley's was the best

Not worth your time or money. We were very disappointed. Lack of talent, lack of script, lack of ghosts.

I did not do the Ghost Train. I did the Ripley's Ghost Tour of the Ripley's museum, the castle, and an old house. Not impressed. I have been on a couple others in St. Augustine that were much more fun. I have been on 3 or 4 in Savannah, GA that were very interactive, the tour guides were interesting and... More

This is a fun tour for a date night. You'll end up taking a million photos of one another. It's a nice train ride through the city. You go to mostly places that Ripley's owns rather than cemeteries and other typical historical sites.
