The tour guide we had did an excellent job. She was very informative and humorous as well. You learn how Florida's original settlement started up to our current date

History made fun and interactive. Several demonstrations of life in early St Augustine. Learned so much and had a great time too. Our tour guide was in period dress and took pride in getting into the roll. We will go back on our next visit.

If you're in St. Augustine, you're probably going to hit up some historical tours. You have the Fort, the Lighthouse, and other sites. This site takes you into what it may have been like during the colonial times- under British and Spanish rule. The tour...More

Thank you for your review! Yes, we have many historical tours available in St. Augustine, and we are proud to have one of the best, most historically accurate, yet highly entertaining one.

We visited with three kids (8, 6 and 5). Definitely do the tour, as others have mentioned. You can see lots without the tour, but their expertise and sharing makes it all come to life. Chad led our tour, and he did a great job...More

The guide was excellent, sorry I don't remember her name. There really isn't much to this. I thought it would be more like Plimoth Plantation or Colonial Williamsburg. I was disappointed.

We're sorry you were disappointed in the living history tour. We make sure to market ourselves at a tour, not a living history museum like those other places you mentioned.

A wonderful glimpse into a small sliver of the amazing history of St Augustine. Our guide, Chad Light, was incredibly knowledgeable, and from one of the oldest families in town! We felt very fortunate to have his in-depth knowledge and personal family history to inform...More

We're sorry you were disappointed in the experience. You're more than welcome to walk through the property before and after the tour, however, the tour itself is the experience. We have kept the price at a minimal $12.99 per person, which we feel is comparable...More

What a great find. Sit at the bar with local beers and food. Partner has the local catch which was Mahi, blackened and served with fries. I had the Caesar Salad with blackened shrimp. Absolutely perfect.

Naomi, Adult admission is $12.99. Go to their home page and look for a link that says, "Get Ticket Info" in the middle left-hand side of the page. Sorry TripAdvisor won't let me include the direct link.

Most of our guests are adults, and most do not have children with them. So I believe you will enjoy the experience.
