  • We were lucky in visiting this attraction on Pirate Day which was really fun. Live music and dancing, rum tasting, folks dressed as pirates. The tower is worth the visit by itself. It gives a great vi...  more »

  • Elle was our guide. She was funny, friendly, well informed, quick witted, sarcastic in the best way. Gave life and added flare to facts to keep a younger audience interested in what may probably be far what keeps the attention of our young ones these days. I thought it was great. My husband, 14 year old, and I really enjoyed it.
  • We enjoyed walking there. There are a lot of nice restaurants and gift shops there. It is a great place to spend the time with family. You can probably spend the a good portion of the day. It is hard to find parking lot there. Would recommend to get a shuttle there. But definitely a great place to visit.
  • Very disappointing. There were few points of interest inside this attraction, and even fewer staff. No staff was around to explain things to us. All staff seemed more focused on a small field trip. For the price, we were expecting much more learning and entertainment.
  • I typically stay away from guided tours because they’re too slow and boring. But LOVED the guided tour through Colonial Quarter. Our guide was fast paced, funny, entertaining, perfectly organized-educational info with visuals/demonstrations, and a real showman. We’re in our 30’s, and everyone from the young children to a couple in their 70s seemed to all also be amused, interactive and entertained. I highly recommend taking this tour if you want a perfectly efficient and well thought-out rundown of the half century of incredible European, Native American and Colonial American history in St. Augustine.
  • Great place to go to get a better understanding of the different timeframes of Saint Augustine history! Went with a group, we had a great guide!
