While a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour the city in terra-firma style and comfort with today's Groupon to City Walks in St. Augustine. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get admission to the History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder! walking tour (up to a $14 value).
- For $9, you get admission to the Creepy Pub Crawl walking tour (up to a $17 value).
City Walks guides historically accurate walking tours for groups limited to about 15 people. The 90-minute nighttime History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder! tour (7:30 p.m. departure nightly, with extra 9:30 p.m. walks on Friday and Saturday) welcomes walkers of all ages, leading them through the streets and filling their heads with true tales of unsolved murders, pirate attacks, massacres, and strange burial customs, such as the case of St. Augustine’s first mayor, who was interred with his entire collection of more than 600 teddy bears.
For those 21 and older, the 2.5-hour Creepy Crawl (7 p.m.–9:30 p.m. nightly) explores various instances of paranormal activity and hauntings while hitting three or four pubs, where customers can purchase discounted drinks and tell scary stories about purchasing full-price drinks elsewhere. Once a month, investigators from Northeast Florida Paranormal Investigators join this tour; call ahead to inquire about when these elite ghostbusters will be around. St. Augustine City Walks is a member of the St. Augustine Historical Society, and local licensed tour guides lead all tours.
City Walks began with a signature pub tour, and has since branched out to include walking tours that explore all sides of Saint Augustine. Steeped in cultural heritage and historical preservation, the tours delve deep into Saint Augustine’s past and present, exploring topics such as the city’s savory cuisine, local chocolatiers, and historical pubs and taverns. Lanterns cast shadows on streets as guides lead groups on City Walks’ History, Mystery, Mayhem & Murder tour, while lighter tours include a Bachelorette Crawl and a walk through the Plaza da la Constitución.
