  • This was a huge disappointment, tickets came from local flavor before we went, if I had to pay full price I would have been upset. This was a very small place, takes less than 30 minutes to go through...  more »

  • Fun and educational! The tour guides are funny and they try to make it as fun as possible. The grounds are full of great information on history and all that happened as the people arrived on land and began to build their town. It's really cool, and very interesting for all the history buffs. AND! Keep your tickets! You get 10% off the restaurants right outside.
  • It was a very interesting and educational tour that we enjoyed a lot. Our guide was very funny. Our group was small which we enjoyed. I can highly recommend this guided tour! On our way, we purchased our tickets on TicketApe - it was extremely easy and fun to read reviews and see photos & information before we started the tour.
  • Nice breakaway from shopping. Entertaining and educational tour guild. Even the teens enjoyed it.
  • The perfect place place to know Florida’s history. Great guide, good recreation of events, if you like history you’ll love this place.
  • We had an informative tourguide retelling the history of St. Augustine, but the telling was a bit bland and boring, especially for kids since you spend about an our walking to different sets of benches and sitting, listening to the tourguide. I would reccomend Fort Mendendez as a MUCH more fun and hands-on experience to go through the history of St. Augustine, especially gor kids, and at a slightly less expensive price.
