Experience Our Historic Adventure Tour

Colonial Quarter


Take a journey through centuries of St. Augustine's rich history in an authentic historical adventure you'll never forget.

Spread over two acres of living history, your tour group will get a close-up, hands-on experience of what life was really like in the Nation's Oldest City during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. They'll take part in interactive activities and living history demonstrations, and enjoy immersive dioramas and graphical stories that highlight St. Augustine's layered history.

The Colonial Quarter pre-booked group tour lasts just under one hour. Your group will be met by a personal tour guide who will lead everyone on an adventure through time, with comprehensive narration and interactive activities every step of the way.

Our 18th Century Spanish Garrison Town boasts a fully authentic 18th century environment that tells the story of the lives of those who supported the Castillo de San Marcos and features family-style table seating for up to 250 visitors, perfect for a lunchtime group meal!
