Best walking tour ever!

Our tour guide, Michelle, was phenomenal! She is a master storyteller in all the best ways. My husband loves history - I’m more of a ‘like’- however Michelle brought St. Augustine to life in such a way that we were both researching more after the tour. Would definitely do this tour again!

You hit the jackpot with Michelle! She is a native of St. Augustine. She doesn’t just give a tour… she is just showing you where she lives! She is so immersed in the history and the community. I am so glad you enjoyed your time with her! Thank you for this lovely review! If you happen to have any photos you would care to forward please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM.

I ended up being the only one that showed up for the tour which was wonderful because my tour guide was able to have more discussion with me and the length of time was ideal. Wonderful tour I would highly recommend for anyone interested in history of the area

Justin - we are SO GLAD you joined us! The other guests loss was your gain! You had Tony as your guide! His superpower is his love for history (did he tell you he teaches high school history?) You got a tour like no one else! Thank you for this lovely review! If you happen to have any photos you would care to forward please send them to ANCIENTCITYTOURS1@GMAIL.COM.
