After we found the pick up spot it was good. It was VERY DIFFICULT to find the spot as there is no physical location for the Loews Royal Pacific Resort pickup. The Uber driver couldn’t find it even after talking to the attendant at Loews Royal Pacific Reaort. He left us at what he believed was the correct spot. I saw a Loews employee and asked him if this was correct. He said no and took me to the correct place. And by the way, the Royal Resort was not identified as Loews Royal Pacific Resort, here is the text I received. Hello Lois Stebbins, for your tour tomorrow the pickup location will be the Universal Pacifica Ballroom at Royal Pacific had to ask if it was Loews, PLEASE work on finding a better place for pickup!! Ishmael, our driver, let us out at the main Resort entrance at the end of the trip so we could get an Uber ride with a specific location for them to pick us up. Maybe you could arrange for your pickup to be at this location? 6300 Hollywood Way. It was help a lot!

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 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
