Our tour guide, Michelle, was phenomenal! She is a master storyteller in all the best ways. My husband loves history - I’m more of a ‘like’- however Michelle brought St. Augustine to life in such a way that we were both researching more after the tour. Would definitely do this tour again!

You hit the jackpot with Michelle! She is a native of St. Augustine. She doesn’t just give a tour… she is just showing you where she lives! She is so immersed in the history and the community. I am so glad you enjoyed your time with her! Thank you for this lovely review! If you happen to have any photos you would care to forward please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM. We may share them on social media. THANKS AGAIN and welcome to the family!

I ended up being the only one that showed up for the tour which was wonderful because my tour guide was able to have more discussion with me and the length of time was ideal. Wonderful tour I would highly recommend for anyone interested in history of the area

Justin - we are SO GLAD you joined us! The other guests loss was your gain! You had Tony as your guide! His superpower is his love for history (did he tell you he teaches high school history?) You got a tour like no one else! Thank you for this lovely review! If you happen to have any photos you would care to forward please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM. We may share them on social media. THANKS AGAIN and welcome to the family!

The great job our guide did in explaining the history; details of the historical events, the details on the important people; it was a leisurely walk and our guide gave us a full 2 hour tour.

Lisa C was your tour guide and doesn’t know how to give a bad tour! She is a wonderful guide! I am so glad you enjoyed your time with her and learned about the city we call home.

Tony was a wealth of knowledge and very engaging. We particularly enjoyed his knowledge of military history and you can see the passion he has for the history of this city. We learned so much in such a short period of time. I would highly recommend this tour.

Tony doesn’t know how to do anything but deliver a great tour! He lives and breathes the history he shares with our guests everyday! His tours always get high marks and we appreciate you recognizing him! Thank you for the recommendation and welcome to the family! Morganne is truly skilled! Delivering a ghost story that gives you the chills gets high marks in my book too! Thanks for recognizing her! We appreciate this great review and welcome to the family!

Tony was a great guide, very enthusiastic about St Augustine. Lisa called us 10min before the tour to make sure we can find the meeting location - very thoughtful. It was a great experience and the highlight of our stay.

Anna THANK YOU! We love it when we hear our guests say one of our tours was the HIGHLIGHT of their trip! We work very hard to provide unique and memorable tour encounters! Tony is a history teacher and certified professional tour guide. He brings that skill set along with his warm demeanor to the table and provides a tremendous tour for his guests. Lisa is one of our Guest Experience Goddesses and as you witnessed firsthand, goes out of her way to meet all of our guests needs. Thank you for recognizing them and welcome to the family!
