This was such an awesome experience! And I appreciated the fact that the guy up front saw we had a 6 yr old with us and wanted to give me a preview tour and tell me that it may or may not be for him. But we allowed him to go with us so he could see what history really was like when you did something wrong. It was gruesome for sure, so we did skip one or two, but it's history so you can't deny it one way or the other. He soaked it in and it was actually his favorite. Idk whether to be scared or not lol, just kidding.

Really interesting and dark but fun! Person at front desk was awesome. Very pleasant. It was fun to touch some of the devices and nice descriptions of use/history! A few devices were repetitive. Worth the $14. Wish we would have known about the miniature museum within location. Could have saved money by purchasing tickets together.

My 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed learning about the haunted history of St. Augustine. We didn’t experience anything paranormal personally, but it was a fun night and we learned a lot about the city.

Our tour was great! Morgan was historically and paranormally knowledgable. She was energetic and her stories and depictions really made you feel like you were stepping in time.

It was awesome and the guides were very knowledgeable and very personable as well. They really made every aspect of their presentation real. Great job!!!
