Great ghost tour, with a historical attitude
Timothy_C
, Nov 2021
Sandra was very informative about the startling history surrounding St Augustine -- and had a number of unique ghost stories. This tour provided an intriguing, history of this city. I have been on other ghost tours that put chills in my spine (Gettysburg, Ellicott City MD), but this one I found to be more historical in its approach. We liked it! But "beware": our guide did possess paranormal evidence that she showed us along the way. ;)

Sandra is the best! Thank you for shining the spotlight on her! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience.

It was just so-so
Gena_D

Having been on walking ghost tours and cemetery chores in the past in New Orleans perhaps my expectations were too high. I can honestly say that this tour was not so great. The storyteller was a little boring and on Top of that a lot of the time was interrupted by people shouting from the passing trolleys which made it difficult to hear the guide. I wouldn’t bother to do this tour again nor would I suggest it to any of my family or friends.

I am sorry to hear this. Unfortunately there are nights when the city encounters some individuals who think it's funny to yell or interrupt tours. This is always out of our control.
