Corny.

Corny and a waste of time and money. Just walked around and looked at bad photos ("apparitions") on the guides iPad.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Sorry that you felt our tour was "corny and a waste of time." Our tours are history and storytelling with some photos that guests have sent in. Sounds like you wanted more of a haunted house and that's just not what we do. Our guides work very hard to give the best tours and our ratings prove that. Enjoy the rest of your stay in St. Augustine.

Sandra is awesome!
Angela_S

When out guide, Sandra, dealt with hecklers in a very professional way! The cemeteries we visited were nice. My 13 year old was a little spooked by the stories, but she loved them. Sandra also mingled some jokes in with the stories to offset the scary stuff.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Sandra is a pro! Through and through! I am sorry that was part of your experience but thrilled to know you appreciated the skill and professionalism that Sandra brings! You could not have been in better hands! Sandra does a great job of reading her audience and keeping younger guests from being too spooked! Thank you for recognizing Sandra and her talents!
