About This Tour

America’s Oldest Haunt

Prepare yourself for a Frightseeing Adventure like none other as your resident Ghost Host shares tales both true and truly unnerving of the city’s tumultuous past. Discover the secrets of the Tolomoto Cemetery and the apparition seen playing on the sacred grounds after dark. Could it be the spirit of five-year old James or is it the Ghost Bride, still waiting for her walk down the aisle. Be sure to keep a watchful eye while passing by the old City Gates. You might catch a glimpse of Elizabeth, a child victim of the yellow fever, waving to passersby. Face your fears in the exclusive nighttime experience at Potter’s Wax Museum’s Chamber of Horrors and enter the town’s most haunted building, the Old Jail… Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes early to make time to visit Cromwell’s Parlour of Paranormal Curiosities.

What Our Guests Are Saying

We enjoyed the tour

I would like to especially point out the excellent storyteller and guide for our tour… Marilyn. She did a wonderful job telling the stories on the tour. She was vibrant, energetic, and a wonderful storyteller. She holds your interest at all times and has a great talent for story telling…

M.L., Royston, GA

So enthusiastic & engaging!

My wife & I enjoyed your Ghosts & Gravestones tour… This was my very first experience and my wife’s 5th or 6th tour. I just wanted to express how much we enjoyed ourselves. The cast of characters were perfect! So enthusiastic & engaging! … Thank you for an amazing evening!!

V.V., Leesburg, FL

Even my 85-year-old mother-in-law had fun!

Our tour last night was amazing… The guy who played Charlie was incredible and always kept you on your toes. Even my 85-year-old mother-in-law had fun!! Thank you!!

M.M., Jupiter, FL

We are still just as excited after the tour...

Our ghost tour guide was Marley and she was fabulous!!! She did a fantastic job at telling us stories and helping us find spirits… We had such a good experience and are still just as excited after the tour as we were before it started!!

Justin did a fantastic job

My husband and I took the Ghosts & Gravestones tour tonight and we had a blast. Justin was our tour guide and he did a fantastic job. I am somewhat sensitive when it comes to paranormal activity and one thing that I found strange was that there were at least 7 pictures that I could not take with my digital camera. 2 were at the cemetery that the little boy visits… My camera was working fine and I changed my batteries before taking the tour.

This was the best that I have done thus far

…I have been coming up to St. Augustine for a couple of years now and I have wanted to do the tour and finally have the time to do so. It was GREAT and have told a lot of my friends about it. The best part of the whole thing was Charlie Powell and the famous exploding Bishop. Really loved it. Every time I come up, I try and do something different and this was the best that I have done thus far. I really love history…

C.T., Bradenton, FL

We loved our tour guide Chris

We visited St. Augustine for the first time in April of this year. My sister is an avid ghost/spirit hunter so this was the one must do event on her list. We weren’t disappointed… It was a great tour, loved our tour guide Chris; he gave us great background on the places we toured. Couldn’t have asked for a better time. Thanks again…!

This only makes me want to go back and take more pictures!

Went on the Ghosts & Gravestones tour about a week ago and absolutely loved it; very fun and the tour guides were very educational. Enjoyed all of the stories, and I am a firm believer of ghosts. This only makes me want to go back and take more pictures!

A.P.

There was a performance quality there like no other

Griz and Nicole were a perfect combination giving these tours. Griz – 6-feet tall with a deep southern drawl really contrasted Nicole – the high-energy firecracker from New York beautifully. We loved it! Nicole’s energy and enthusiasm as the Ghost Host was intoxicating, and most definitely the highlight of our ghost tour…

G.

Samantha was terrific!

I was in St. Augustine for my birthday, and saw a brochure for the Ghosts & Gravestones tour so I signed up… I have been working in the entertainment industry for 13 years, and have seen many talented actors in my time. Samantha was my haunted tour guide and she was terrific! Sam stayed in character the whole time. The other cast members were also very good. Your cast members gave me a very memorable birthday and to them I say Bravo!

G.P., Groveland, FL

We will definitely be back!

My husband and I attended the guided tour. It was truly an amazing and fun experience. This was our first visit to St. Augustine, and your crew made it extremely special. Raven and Jack Knife on the bus were amazing. Raven did a great job telling the history and stories of St. Augustine. She has a fantastic personality. Then there was Tracy in the Old Jail, who by far was the best of the best at acting her part. She did a phenomenal job!…
