“Great experience”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

My husband & I were the only ones who booked an event on a recent Friday evening, so we got Brandy & Tina's (and Sam, Luke, Toby & other's ) undivided attention. My husband is the more skeptical one, but he came away with two real experiences that he is still talking about. He & I both heard two knocks in the kids' room and his divining rod (I think that is what it is), moved in response to a question to Toby. It also looked like an orb followed me out of Sam's cell and I had two instances of feeling very cold (confirmed by temperature readings). When we were sitting in the upper part of the jail, the 'inmates' were definitely making their presence known. I don't know how anyone can come away from this experience & doubt that there really is something on another level here. I just wish now that we had also booked their Keyhole after dark tour the following evening instead of the lighthouse. Thanks again for a great evening!

“Unforgetable Experience/ Very Validating!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The tour guides are very attentive and informative and each party receives their own equipment to use during the investigation. My husband and I decided we would take this tour the night of April 26th, while spending the weekend in St. Augustine and shockingly, we experienced far more paranormal activity than we could have possibly imagined. Unlike other paranormal "tours", this is truly an investigation. During our investigation, contact with several spirits were made. One of which, clearly responded to a question that was asked, by speaking my name. My husband was a skeptic prior that night, now he is a believer! This adventure is a MUST for believers and skeptics. I would not recommend taking young children or those who are frightened by "ghosts", because this is NOT like a paranormal walking tour, this is real and the spirits at the old jail house seem very willing to communicate and make the presence known!

“2nd Visit is Even Better! Denny McCue”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

My sister, 12 year old nephew and I had the most fun at the old St. Augustine jail back in August 2013. On March 22, 2014 we returned with our Mom and cousin, Jill. The additional equipment enhanced the experience and made it so much more. Toby is a real draw for my sister...and my nephew jumps right in and investigates on his own. What happened this time around was awesome! I took a couple pics in the Sheriff's office in the back part beyond the fireplace. I turned and announced "Flash" and took one pic that will be shown on the facebook page. There is a huge orb above one of the ladies' head. At first I really thought it was an old fashioned street light outside the window. A few people congregated around me to see the pic. (which was taken on an old Polaroid camera...not a digital). There was the orb! I hurried into the HG area where Cary and Tina were observing a screen (there was a camera in the Sheriff's office). They said, " What do you have?" like they already knew...when observing the video screen, we saw a total of 3 orbs. You see one, then my flash of the camera, and two shoot upwards. We had a cross verification of an actual pic and a video of the orb...it was a great experience and Tina, Brandi, Maria, and Cary are so knowledgeable about the history! They also guide without pushing, and conduct EVP sessions in a most expert way! Love the experience and plan on making more visits in the future. If you too have made a previous visit, and want to come back...please make sure to contact them and you will receive VIP treatment, as in being able to go inside and investigate early while others are touring and getting the history. Very much worth every penny they charge if you go in with an open mind!

“Great time!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

My 13 yr old daughter loves the paranormal so we decided to take her on an adventure. Tina, Cary and brandy were awesome! We had a great time exploring, listening and experiencing the jail and it's spirits. My daughter and I both felt like we were being touched on the legs and hair. My husband felt a very hot spot on his neck and I took a photo and there is an orb at his neck! I took a photo of my daughter and there seems to be a mist near her leg and it looks like part of her thigh is missing! We connected with a young boy who was interested in talking and a young woman who seemed to favor my husband. We had a great experience and really felt like we had interacted with spirits vs being told a cheesy ghost story! I fully recommend this to anyone! Our family will be back!!
