I loved learning the history of the area. One improvement I would suggest, I bought my pass online, but when I arrived, I waited in line with everyone. It would be nice if you had a window that just took the online QR codes so paying online was an advantage.

Very knowledgeable tour guides. We jumped on at the jail and made it all the way to the distilleries. We walked that area a little bit, and hopped on trolley that came through. Very convenient, and well worth the price of admission.

Very relaxing and informative.loved Kevin our driver of the trolley witty full of information. Woman at the ticket booth near jailhouse was very rude she should not deal with the public.

Great! Love that you can hop off & on. Tour guides are entertaining, especially Trevor. Good way to see history of St. Augustine along with shopping & food.

Good but would be nice if it took you by the lighthouse
