I finally found this tour so I could review it (see my review of the Lightner Museum which was inspired by this tour). We have never done a walking tour anywhere, but visit St. Augustine every year. This year we decided to do the History, Mystery, Mayhem & MURDER tour, inspired by a Groupon, no less. Wow, were we happy... More

We went on a chilly Friday night. Im kind of a local, next town, and have spent a lot of time in St Augustine and I learned some things on this tour. Kathleen was our guide and she was outstanding except she was hard to hear. I would return for this tour and bring guests.

I have been on several ghost tours and the Mystery, Mahem & Murder tour sounded interesting ! We were very impressed with Nicolette our tour guide as she is a 5th generation St Augustine resident. She was very passionate about history and shared personal stories along with the tour stories and welcomed our group to participate and she she had... More

The staff was very kind and talkative. The overall tour was terrible. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable (because she was apart of the historical society) but kept telling us is wasn't a ghost tour. She didn't tell us any mystery or mayhem. She told us one murder and told her that's all she got. I was very displeased with... More

Went on the History, Mystery, Mayhem and Murder tour during Nights of Lights on November 25th 2016. Nicolette was our tour guide. She is born and raised in Saint Augustine and has quite the heritage. Full of information, very theatrical, well done. As a local of Saint Augustine I learned things I simply did not know. Even with all of... More

I don't like leaving bad reviews, especially for someone like Janice who was clearly doing her best. The tour was supposed to be filled with "the stories you don't hear on the trolley." Well, my advice would be to take a few trolley tours. We heard about Matanzas Bay on this tour, our ghost tour, and every single trolley. We... More

Janice (our tourguide) was full of knowledge of all of Saint Augustine's history. If anybody has any desire to learn about the oldest town in America, this tour is highly recommended.

My family was hoping to go on the Creepy Pub Crawl but it was full. We were put on a waiting list. We were called the afternoon of the tour and were offered this Mystery, Mayhem tour.

If you have any interest in some of the history of America's oldest city, this is a great place to start. Our tour guide "Maggie" was extremely knowledgeable, and kept the tour interesting and on track!

My husband and I were visiting St. Augustine and took the History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder tour because of the good reviews we saw. The information was both interesting and good. However, I will need to do more research on a few points, as I am currently reading a book that has different information about Flagler than we were told.... More
