I would say this is our second trip with St. Augustine Historic Walking Tours but it actually was our second, third and fourth!
We started by planning another food tour and then, since that wasn't nearly enough for us, added the Historic Beer Crawl. Since we had so much fun, at the last minute, we decided to continue our crawls and add on the Spirits with Spirits haunted crawl. So after all was said and done we enjoyed 3 distinct and amazing tours in one day!
Mia was very gracious when booking the tours and reitterated they would work around allergies and dietary restrictions. Anyone who has any food allergies or diet restrictions really needs to try this tour, since they were and are the only ones willing to work around these challanges and they do it gratiously!
We were given a discount for multiple bookings and enjoyed every restaurant we dined in. We found each restaurant was a gem and we really had excellent food at each of our 5 restaurant stops. We also enjoyed a wine tasting and several specialty food/gourmet shops, where, of course, we got to sample!
History and facts were shared along the entire journey and Mia's knowledge of the city and each establishment was impressive. Even though we have visted before and did two tours with Mia today, we continued to learn new and fun things each time.
We received an envelope of each restaurant's menu, which was a nice touch so we can remember what we had and where we ate it at.
The historic pub crawl was also a ton of fun! We stopped at 4 or 5 pubs/bars, had a pint or glass of wine in each and enjoyed the company, history and experience. We got a chance to taste several hard to find and craft beers and great sangria along our stop. La Taberna del Cabello was my favorite stop as we had amazing sangria and played a traditional Spanish game called "Close the Box".
Our Spirts with Spirts tour capped off an amazing and fun and yes, full day of food and drink. Kev was full of stories and details and helped us work the equipment. This is a very reasonably priced tour at and includes 1 drink. Each additional location along the tour allows guests to purchase drinks/food as they like, but purchases are not required. We enjoyed the "haunts" and stories and even got to experience a little paranormal activity. We had a great time!
Again, one of the only tour groups who keep their sizes small, which allows for intimate conversation and a chance to get to know everyone.
These tours are becoming our favorite activity while in St. Augustine and we cannot wait to come back again and eat and drink our way around the city!
Thanks again, Mia and Kev for making our tour one of a kind!
