      Fantastic tour and great way to see the town.
      Great walking tour with tons of information. Kevin (tour guide) was outstanding with his knowledge, honesty, and kindness! He said he might talk a lot which was in our favor as the tour ran long yet seemed to fly by. I love history and left this tour with a desire to learn more about Flagler and St. Agustine as a whole. I highly recommend Kevin as a tour guide and would absolutely do another tour.

      A rewarding glimpse of the history of St. Augustine
      Our guide brought the history of St. Augustine alive. I was particularly interested in the Gilded Age and the contributions of Henry Flagler. He showed us the church and home site of Mr. Flagler as well as the hotels and how they functioned at the height of their popularity. The tour provided an orientation to the city that was so helpful on the following days. I think a walking tour is an essential part of experiencing the city.

      Thorough and interesting history of STA
      So glad we did this tour. Our guide Kevin was a fountain of knowledge and answered questions readily. Pace was good especially given the heat. He stopped mainly in shaded areas. Strongly recommend.

      Had an amazing time! We visited 4th of July weekend and it was hot! Although it was very hot and sunny he was able to find shade for us at most of our stops. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly recommend if you are looking to learn the history of Florida

      Historian Kevin will tell you the deep history of St Augustine - Highly recommend.
      Kevin and Spyglass was awesome - he knows his history and clearly more knowledgeable than just reading off a script. He will tell you things the big enterprise tours will not do. This is his passion and it comes through during the tour. Go with Kevin if you want to find out a deep understanding of St Augustine.

      Kevin was a wealth of knowledge. The walking tour exceeded my expectations even in the 95-degree heat. Loved learning about the real history of the area, not a watered-down version. Highly recommend.

      Kevin led us on a tour of St Augustine that was one of the best walking tours I have ever taken. He provided us with history, stories and local information. Highly recommend. Thank you Kevin!!

      Walking History Tour of St. Augustine
      We had a very personable and knowledgeable tour guide in Kevin Rose from Spyglass Travel. He shared the real history of St. Augustine and that historical perspective is way better than sitting on a trolley. Thank you Kevin!

    Had a great time learning about St Augustine’s haunted history. Kevin is very knowledgeable, friendly and makes it fun to learn new things. He was very truthful about things such as if stories didn’t make sense. He debunked some stories that weren’t factual using facts to disprove them. He was able to show us evidence that he and others had collected on this tour. Kevin is very passionate and proud about St Augustine’s history and it’s contagious

    This tour was educational and a blast! Kevin did a great job describing some key historical events while also describing paranormal encounters. Most impressively, he put spirit encounters into historical context (ie, why a spirit would behave a certain way, what made sense for a haunting based on historical facts). Overall quite an enjoyable way to experience some of the key landmarks in St. Augustine!

    This was a great experience with Kevin#1 as our tour guide. The evening was perfect with very few tourists in the streets. Kevin was very personable and told the true facts of the events in the stops we made on the tour. This is not a spooky, made up ghost tour. Kevin related to us the history of St. Augustine. We would recommend this tour to all those who are interested in the spirits of this old city. Thank you, Kevin!

    If you want a history story this is great for those who we're looking for history. I was looking for more of a ghost experience. I expected to go inside buildings and
    graveyards which we did none of these. The problem was our tour guide did not use a mike when you're hard-of-hearing and there's a group of 20 it's very hard to hear especially with all the noise around you because they're walking in high traffic areas it's also well too lit in the areas she's going just wasn't a good experience extremely disappointed glad I only paid half price for it for I got it as a Florida resident half off I would not recommend this tour if you're looking for a decent ghost tour

    What an amazing experience my wife and I had on this tour. If you want to learn about the actual facts and ghosts, then this is the tour for you! First of all Kevin who is in charge is amazing at what he does, he’s very well informed and even shows you concrete evidence that is chilling. You will visit several sites that are known for being very haunted. My wife who is sensitive to this stuff actually captured on her camera some pretty spooky stuff. Kevin also stayed with us for a bit after the tour ended and had an amazing conversation about all paranormal stuff!

    Kevin was an amazing guide. He took us to the hugenuot cemetery, the Catholic cemetery, the fort, and the city gates and gave us the history of the ghosts that are there. He also took us to a house where a ghost resides and told us how the ghost let's him know when she doesn't trust someone. It was a really cool experience. Definitely take Kevin's tour when in St. Augustine.

    The tour was interesting! The stories were engaging and told the history of the area as well as the history of the haunt/ghost. He answered questions intelligently and made it a point to debunk any myths or falsities. Walking was at a good leisurely pace and there weren’t many steps or changes in terrain. It was also NOT scary! The tour was small, 7 people total plus Kevin. Unfortunately, the other people on the tour showed up late (and drunk), which he handled with grace. They were obnoxious the entire time and old enough to know better, but he stayed professional and herded the cats well. Lesson learned, next time I’ll book a private tour because class and tact and general good manners among fellow tour-goers isn’t guaranteed.

    I highly recommend this tour. Kevin was an awesome tour guide who has a passion for ghost hunting. He separates himself from others because of his knowledge in the paranormal, equipment, and sightings that he showed us in the city with historical knowledge to support his findings. If theatrics is what your looking for then this tour is not for you. This tour is hands down the best tour we did all weekend.

    I researched a LOT for a good ghost tour, not a phony one or a super flashy stuff, but a real one that would tell me real stories about real people, and most of all respecting the spirits! Kevin was amazing, he did a ghost historically tour I would say, he knows a lot, and he knows about what he’s talking about! He also has a lot of passion and respect for the supernatural, so it’s really good to listen to him while he tell stories! And you can see he’s happy about doing his job! We didn’t even fell the time going by! I would recommend this tour for anyone who is seeking for true stuff! Don’t let yourself fall for some vintage costumes and a yelling guy!

    Our haunted history tour was great! Kevin was a fantastic guide and provided many interesting stories and history about the city and the sites we visited. Seeing some of the actual evidence he had captured from previous visits was fascinating to see. A must do and see - especially around Halloween!
