Good tour—reading the displays also gives a lot of information. We took the advice of another reviewer to buy the ticket a bit cheaper at a Red Train Trolley kiosk. The Spaniards and Brits just couldn’t decide who should “own” St.Augustine/Florida!

The house and grounds are well kept and very informative. It is the oldest house in the USA. It's historic significance is priceless.

This place is a must see! Not only because it's our history, but the artifacts and building materials they used are really neat to learn about. It's great to see how people lived before us.

A very well preserved and presented piece of history of this lovely city. The tour guy was fantastic with clear explanation of the full history of this place. Very educational and interesting if you want to understand how it was when the first Europeans arrived...More

By going through 5 families who have lived in the oldest house in America, the docent gave an excellent picture of how life was lived through several centuries. A must see if you want to have a real life history lesson.

What a fantastic tour. I can't remember our tour guide, but he was a tall man with brown hair and a fantastic accent. Very informative and entertaining! You can tell the most about your tour guide when he is asked "silly" questions and he answers...More
