The City of St. Augustine requires that anyone who, for compensation, offers to show and describe the points of interest and historical places in the city must obtain a Tour Guide License. Tour guides must be 18 years of age or older and must pass an examination as to their knowledge of the history of the city; the names and location of streets and highways, proper designations and history of the various points of historical and general interest within the city and its vicinity and other pertinent and important information.
In addition to the city license testing, our guides go through a rigorous in-house training process in order to become St. Augustine Historic Walking Tour Guides. All of our tours are researched at the St. Augustine Historical Society Research Library to ensure the authenticity of all of our stories.
You may have seen pictures of our guides on one of our competitor’s website. None of our guides have worked for that company for over 3 years, yet they still use the pictures as they know that these are the best tour guides in town. Thanks for the kudos and for letting everyone know that we have the best guides in St. Augustine.
