A very informative and entertaining walk, despite it being the last of the evening. We learned new and interesting things-both mundane and macabre. Our host, Dusti, was very good-natured (especially in the face of interruptions from hooligans), knowledgeable, and entertaining. The tour was well-paced as there was ample opportunity for pictures at each stop. The stories Dusti told were most... More

Our tour guide Jim was amazing. He was funny, knowledgeable and entertaining. The stories were interesting and well told. I took many pictures but one in particular was the best that Jim asked me to send it to him. This tour is long but fun and well worth it.

We went on this tour last night and had a great time. Our dog was able to come with us which was fun. I even found a blue ribbon on one of my photos. Have to go on tour to find out what it means!

This was a great tour. Jim, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the area and was fun to talk with and listen too. It was a large group overall and at times it was a little hard to hear over the traffic, but it was a great and fun tour to be on.

I thought the tour was great! I'm not one for scary things but it was a great mix of history and ghost stories! Definitely would recommend it to anyone who is looking to have a fun night with some fun tour guides!

We're not unhappy with the ghost tour but pretty confidant this is not the best one in town. Walking up to the Castillo at night was the coolest part of the tour, the "haunted building" was a let-down.

As the subject of this post says, this tour was more historically oriented than spooky. I was expecting something more interesting frankly. Our guide was Tracy who did a great job of sharing the history of St. Augustine with us.

Our guide was Mike. He was funny and interesting. However upon arriving at the love tree inn about an hour ahead of time, I was immediately asked by someone behind a desk, did you make a reservation? I said yes and handed him my printed booking sheet which I purchased a month prior. He looked at it and said, ok,... More

I enjoyed the stories but didn't find some credible or likely. It's important to note, I am a skeptic but I went on the tour because my family wanted to. I was more persuaded because I thought we would get to walk through cemeteries and learn about those who passed - which you don't get to do. I think they... More

We had heard the '' Sheriff Ghost Tour " was a great one but we read a review on here about the 'sheriff' acting inappropriately, we decided last minute on the Ghostly Encounter tour and I am so glad we did.
