We really enjoyed Jan and her storytelling. Thanks for a great tour! We did see something in one of our pictures that we attached and are curious as to if it is something “extra” or just a reflection.

Wife and I bailed about 30 minutes into the tour. We really were not feeling the vibes of the tour. The tour guide was good and very animated but we didn't feel the vibe. What we think killed it for us was the lack of history being presented. It felt more like, oh something spooky has happened here, than actually a historically event happened and then hauntings happened. It really felt more touristy than an actual ghost tour.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Benjamin, I wish you would have returned to the office after feeling as though this wasn't a tour for you. I would have offered you a chance to go with another guide. The history presented is enough to allow guests the opportunity to understand why places have paranormal activity. We do not go indepth the way we would on a History Tour. We can assure you that the history is accurate and the stories are truths/myths/legends a blend of all. Locals, as well as tourist, enjoy the mix between history and mystery. Thank you for saying the "tour guide was good and very animated." Jan has a passion for history and enjoys sharing that love with her guests. Enjoy your stay in St. Augustine!

Leaving! I wanted a real ghost experience not a made up story telling experience. Now im pissed that you won’t let me submit because you want more characters !
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Did you read all of our marketing? We are a storytelling ghost tour. All guides, office staff and marketing outlets all state we are not a jump scare. It states, "leaving"..when exactly did you leave? I wish you would have called or cone back to the office. I would have gladly given you a refund. Not sure what you were looking for and it's trip advisor that requires a certain amount of characters in your review, not us.

As someone who doesn’t believe much in ghosts, it didn’t matter one bit. Our tour guide, The Undertaker, was a blast and knew his history down to the bone(s). Learned a lot, laughed lot, and I recommend it 100%!

Matt, The Undertaker is a fabulous guide as you pointed out! We love that you shared that skeptics and believers will all enjoy his tour! … and you are right! He knows his history!! Thanks for the great review and welcome to the family!

Lame. Silly. Not worth the money. The host was boring and made terrible jokes. Perhaps just not my cup of tea.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thanks for the two star review. I wish you would have called us, I would have gladly allowed you to come back with another guide or would have given you a partial refund. I went back and the guide in question consistently receives 4 and 5 star reviews so perhaps this wasn't your cup of tea. I hope you find a tour that better suits you.
