We went to the Old Jail on Halloween of 2022. Our tour guide was Bobalou- he was fantastic! Very knowledgeable about the history of the jail, but also able to bring humor to the experience. Would definitely recommend for people interested in history!

Bobalew was amazing. it was just me and my daughter and he was serious when need be and joked as well. We loved him I can't imagine liking this tour as much with a different guide. You can tell he enjoys his job.

Bobalew was our jail tour guide and he was phenomenal! He made the visit lots of fun! He was very knowledgeable and no matter what question was asked he gave a good answer and told the person, “that was a good question” making everyone feel good about coming! He is hilarious and kind! Keep him on!

Guided through by Patrick, we learned of the horrors and atrocities suffered by the inmates at the Old Jail in St. Augustine. I’d recommend this tour to anyone who visits this town as it’s both fun and insightful. While the actors of today make it entertaining, it’s also a good history lesson.
