Join us on a Ghostly Encounter. Enter the Love Tree Cottage to hear strange and unusual stories of those who refuse to leave. We also visit two cemeteries, the city gates the grounds of the Old Fort and many of your guides favorite haunts. Tour will last approximately 90 minutes with about 35 to 40 minutes of actual walking. People come from all over Florida, Ponte Vedra, Vilano Beach, St. Augustine Beach, Hastings, Palatka, Daytona Beach, and Orlando to name a few to take our tour. We have been touring longer than all other ghost tours in St. Augustine, except one, which now does not have the same owner. We offer an exceptional experience for the entire family and are pet friendly as well. No one tries harder to make you happy than the guides at "A Ghostly Encounter"!

Mike lead our group of about twenty. We even had two well-behaved leashed dogs in our group. The stories were interesting and Mike had a great delivery. There were two little girls in our group, ages 7 and 9, who were a little frightened by some of the tales. And it's not too strenuous a walk.

Thank Jan M

I have used A Ghostly Encounter twice in two days for both a history tour and a ghost tour. BOTH tours were exceptional! Our guide, Jim, kept us impressed and engaged both times. He is a phenomenal story teller with mischievous grin that kept me at ease even during the ghost stories. He went above and beyond during each trip... More

The walking tour was a good history lesson but was not presented in a professional manner. I have taken other walking tours where the leader was dressed in period clothes and presented the program in a theatrical manner. The tour guide was very informative was just presented in kind of a classroom situation. If your looking for an education about... More

A very informative and entertaining walk, despite it being the last of the evening. We learned new and interesting things-both mundane and macabre. Our host, Dusti, was very good-natured (especially in the face of interruptions from hooligans), knowledgeable, and entertaining. The tour was well-paced as there was ample opportunity for pictures at each stop. The stories Dusti told were most... More

Our tour guide Jim was amazing. He was funny, knowledgeable and entertaining. The stories were interesting and well told. I took many pictures but one in particular was the best that Jim asked me to send it to him. This tour is long but fun and well worth it.

We went on this tour last night and had a great time. Our dog was able to come with us which was fun. I even found a blue ribbon on one of my photos. Have to go on tour to find out what it means!

This was a great tour. Jim, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the area and was fun to talk with and listen too. It was a large group overall and at times it was a little hard to hear over the traffic, but it was a great and fun tour to be on.

I thought the tour was great! I'm not one for scary things but it was a great mix of history and ghost stories! Definitely would recommend it to anyone who is looking to have a fun night with some fun tour guides!
