  • Ellie was hilarious and presented her tour in a way that was understandable by all ages. I would definitely recommend the tour. We bought the passport to save some money. Would definitely come back again!
  • Great staff & it's informative AND fun at the same time. Just bring a drink cuz it gets a little hot but they do provide water for everyone throughout your tour! A must-see St Augustine attraction!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
  • I enjoyed my time here. The tour was informative as well as entertaining. Our guide was very fun. He taught us so much in very little time. The houses are neat to see inside. A little expensive for my taste, but not too bad as far as price goes.
  • Food was horrible, service took forever! I order a burger and it was black, way over cooked! I also order the appetizer of cheese and meats. It was 2 small pieces of cheese and deli cut ham. It was horrible, don't go there.
  • Great atmosphere and live music.
