from St. Augustine Ghost & Gravestones Trolley of the Doomed
Ghost Tour by Best of St. Augustine
Join us aboard the trolley of the doomed, as your Ghost Host entrances you with tales of misfortune and mayhem. Hear accounts of long-gone residents who can still be seen in numerous locations around the city. The tumultuous past transcends into the present as we travel through the ancient city.

You’ll hear stories from years of research, personal accounts, and hauntingly real-life experiences.

See Scary Sights like Huguenot Cemetery
On the Ghosts & Gravestones tour, you will pass by some of the scariest and most sacred sites, including the Huguenot Cemetery, the final resting place of the victims of yellow fever... or was it final? Some visitors to the burial grounds have reported seeing eerie apparitions and translucent orbs floating about.

If you keep a watchful eye while passing the City Gates, you might catch a glimpse of Elizabeth, a child victim of yellow fever, waving to passersby.

You will also pass the Tolomoto Cemetery. Who’s playing games in the cemetery when the sun goes down? Is it the spirit of five-year-old James jumping from branch to branch in the trees, or is it the Ghost Bride, still waiting for her walk down the aisle?

Hear About the Old Drug Store and Enter Potter's Wax Museum
Built on the edge of the Tolomato Cemetery sits one of St. Augustine’s most recognizable buildings, the Old Drug Store. Unexplained noises, cold spots and shadows reportedly moving on their own makeup only a few of the hundreds of documented supernatural occurrences. Learn the secrets to these hauntings that have plagued the Old Drug Store from the time it first opened in 1887. Afterward, get an exclusive nighttime experience inside Potter’s Wax Museum’s Chamber of Horrors for a unique retelling of the famed pirate Andrew Ranson’s gruesome execution.

Visit the Old Jail, One of the City's Most Haunted Places
You will end your journey with a visit to the Old Jail, one of the city’s most haunted locations. Listed on the Florida and National registry of Haunted Places, the Old Jail has been the site of countless supernatural occurrences. Many criminals have met their maker here. A shiv in the back or a hangman’s noose ended numerous lives. Be on the lookout for former prisoner Charlie Powell, as he is just as mischievous dead as he was alive. Visitors to the Old Jail have experienced cold spots, strange odors, loud banging noises, orbs of light, and even apparitions.


Comfortable shoes are recommended so you don’t become dead on your feet during the brief walk.
