A little bit theatrical for me but all in all enjoyable.

This is a fun tour for a date night. You'll end up taking a million photos of one another. It's a nice train ride through the city. You go to mostly places that Ripley's owns... read more

Good ghost tour, I've been on a few and this one was fun. Great tour guides and the last part inside Ripley's was the best

Not worth your time or money. We were very disappointed. Lack of talent, lack of script, lack of ghosts.

I did not do the Ghost Train. I did the Ripley's Ghost Tour of the Ripley's museum, the castle, and an old house. Not impressed. I have been on a couple others in St. Augustine that were much more fun. I have been on 3 or 4 in Savannah, GA that were very interactive, the tour guides were interesting and... More

This is a fun tour for a date night. You'll end up taking a million photos of one another. It's a nice train ride through the city. You go to mostly places that Ripley's owns rather than cemeteries and other typical historical sites.

We were very disappointed. The tour is a farce. The script or lack of...was cheesy. A total "tourist trap". I don't how or what could be changed to improve the experience,but as it is, it is just lame. We felt as though they were talking to us like we were gullible and I suppose there were some on the train... More

My wife and daughter and i went to st. augustine between xmas and new years to ride the train and see the lights in town. It was a cool evening but not uncomfortable on an open train ride. The price was a reasonable 10 dollars per person but it was only about a 20 minute to 30 minute ride. We... More

I've been visiting St. Augustine since family moved here in the early 90's, and one of my very favorite things to do is take in a ghost tour. The number of tours has exploded in the last several years, and I realized I had never taken this well-publicized tour. I was excited to get to walk around Ripley's at night... More

My family and I had fun on the ghost train. They give you a couple of ghost hunting tools to use and they take you to a couple of local haunts on the train going through town. The best part was returning to Ripleys and getting to tour the 2nd and 3rd floors in the dark and hearing about some... More

This is the red train ghost tour. We left after receiving a laser pointer and an energy meter. We made 2 stops, the first about a mile away at the red train ticket window, and the second at the Castillo for story telling. We then returned to Ripley to learn about a crazy hotel tenant known as Mr. X who... More

Totally thrown together. Unprepared. No theatrics whatsoever. The only thing well done was the person who seemed to have been behind the throwing together of this event did decent research behind the deaths of these supposed ghosts. Our driver nearly left people behind when we stumbled around the outside of the Spanish War Fort with the pointless tour provided emfs... More
