Our guide Kevin was terrific. He did a great job telling us the history of the city. Would highly recommend him. The only thing we were a little upset at they had enough openings for us to have changed our tickets to the 7:00 tour but they said we couldn’t change as it would make the 7:40 tour to small but yet it would have been the same amount as the 7:00 tour. But our tour guide was really good.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We couldn't agree more, Kevin is an excellent guide! I am sorry about the confusion with switching your tour time. We do our best to accommodate such requests, but there are times we just cannot.

The stories were interesting and creepy. Our guide was a great story teller and extremely knowledgeable. The group was small enough that everyone could comfortably gather around the guide and hear easily. The various locations were close enough to St. George Street that you could grab dinner before or after the tour, but far enough that crowd noise was not a disruption to the stories. We took our 9 and 7 year olds and they enjoyed it as well.

To improve

The tour is fine, however it would help if the tour guide would show pictures on a tablet and not on the plone. The tour also add more people than they advertise making difficult to hear the stories.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
I do apologize for the difficulties you had hearing the stories while on tour. The city allows 25 guests on tour, but we try to stay at 20. During the holiday season, the town can become extremely busy and we strive to make improvements. Thank you for your suggestions. We value your time and input.

I loved the story telling. Matt did an excellent job at keeping everyone engaged and sharing the ghost stories of the city. He is an excellent guide with a great mix of humor and scare. Learning about the history of the people was really interesting to me and my family. We are from Puerto Rico and we found there were many parallels of our island history, including the ghosts stories, and St Augustine as both were overtaken by the Spaniards. I would definitely take this tour again. Matt made it very entertaining but also gave us some education. It was truly the best part of our Night of Lights experience.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Wow! What a review! Thank you! Matt is such a gifted storyteller, as well as a passionate history aficionado. He stirs all of that together and delivers amazingly educational and entertaining tours that are filled with heart. Thank you for sharing that our tour was the highlight of your Nights of Lights experience! We are humbled and honored! If you happen to have any photos you would care to forward please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM. We may share them on social media. THANKS AGAIN and welcome to the family!
