Why You Need to Take Our St Augustine Ghost Tour

Our ghost tours are run by local paranormal and historical experts who have real experience in the spirit world and have come face to face with a few real ghosts. They’ll safely guide you through spooky alleyways and haunted houses of St. Augustine, and you might even have a few frightening experiences yourself! Our tours are exciting, and the best part is that we rely on real supernatural phenomena to get that blood flowing. There’s nobody in a costume hiding in the dark for a cheap scare; we let the ghosts do all the haunting! The streets of St. Augustine are soaked in blood, so there’s no shortage of terrors.

Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, St. Augustine claims the title of America’s oldest city. St. Augustine served as Florida’s capital city for hundreds of years as it constantly changed hands between Spanish and British rule. St. Augustine saw numerous battles as pirates, and enemy kingdoms attempted to seize control.

Both the Brits and French have attacked the city several times, and the British succeeded after the Seven Years War, holding St. Augustine for twenty years.

The historic city became part of the United States when the Spanish ceded over Florida, and old plantation owners began setting up shop in the area. But still, Saint Augustine saw more battles.

The Castillo de San Marcos became a holding cell for captive Natives after the Seminole Wars. St Augustine lacked defenses during the Civil War, which allowed the Union to take the city with ease in 1862.

Today, St. Augustine still serves as one of Florida’s many major tourist destinations. After centuries of war, disease, and death, the city has become one of America’s haunted hotspots.

Ghosts and spirits are abound in St. Augustine, and the spooky history has helped make the city a unique part of American culture. The ghost of Henry Flagler has been spotted at several spots across the city, and the Castillo de San Marcos is stained with the blood of countless battles.

Some say the ghosts of Spanish soldiers still haunt the fort, and shadow people have been seen in the hidden depths of the Castillo. Watch out for the St. Augustine Monster if you just so happen to go for a swim! This tentacled behemoth takes no prisoners! No matter what kind of haunt tickles your fancy, we’ve got something to keep you on your toes. The Old City is waiting…book your St. Augustine ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours today!

Why should you tour with us?

Icon
You want to find out if the lore of St. Augustine’s Medici Lions is true

Two massive Medici Lions, replicas of Florence Italy’s own, serve as gate-keepers to St. Augustine. Their maws open, claws out-stretch, the cats invite visitors in through the city’s picture postcard bridge. They serve as a stepping stone into the magic that is this wonderful, incredibly diverse, and retro little town. St. Augustine is a fairy-tale town, and like all fairy tales, it has an abundance of magic and mayhem.

Icon
You've experienced the beaches and want to do something on dry land

Let’s be honest, part of the fun of coming to Florida are the beaches. But there’s just so much laying out in the sun you can take. It’s time to head back to the hotel and start to prepare for the night’s activities. Sure, there’s a lot to do in the sun in St. Augustine, but the real fun starts once the moon rears its head. Capitalize on the night with a St. Augustine ghost tour!

Icon
You're a history buff

When the French attacked St. Augustine early in the 1600s, the Spaniards retaliated with a vengeance. They overwhelmed the French garrison. What did the Spaniards do after these unfortunate surrendered? They executed every last one and dumped their bodies in the bay. This is just one of the many tales of those bloody days. Want to hear more? Book a St. Augustine ghost tour with us!

Icon
You want to learn about the real pirates of the Caribbean

St. Augustine was put to the torch dozens upon dozens of times. Why? Cause that’s how pirates rolled during the Golden age of their trade. Villains and scoundrels like Blackbeard and Sir. Francis Drake roamed the Florida coast and their favorite place to stop by, have a beer, and pillage to death? St. Augustine. Some of the spiritual consequences of their excursions can still be felt after dark.

Icon
You had fun in Orlando but want something more

St. Augustine is just a stone’s throw away from Orlando, the theme park capital of the world. There are dozens of parks in the area, not just the Magic Kingdom, but Universal and SeaWorld. You need something that keeps the blood pumping, but with less special effects — more human drama. What better way to tap directly into all that historical drama than with an open-world haunted house?

Icon
No need to go to Madrid, Spain, to see its culture…or the ghosts of its descendants

Air travel is expensive, and traveling to Europe is doubly so. Part of the charm of St. Augustine is that it sweeps visitors into old-world charms right out of the gates. It’s a quaint little living museum where folks can travel back to conquistador times and frolic in those Spaniard vibes. The town is full of magic, and wild eccentricities. A new attraction, something to fall in love with, around every corner.
