very enjoyable ride with a guide/driver who wanted to GsD and didn't want to chat all the time. In the morning everyone was very tired and knocked out on the drive home. Otherwise, the starting point in St. Augustine was very well chosen to jump straight into the trolley. Beautiful city with great buildings. We found it amazing that there are a lot of homeless people who are concentrated on the tourist sites.

This was a great experience. We rode the trolley through all stops, to get a sense of where we wanted to go back. Favs were the St. George street experience and The Distillery tour. A lot of overtly touristy things on the other stops, but it was good to hear the history.

Our guide, Gary, was excellent. He was fun and knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area. He even gave us some tips on places to visit in town. We will definitely be kayaking with them again the next time we visit St. Augustine.

No time to do everything on the tour. But the tour is great and if you pick the activity you want to get to and do the all-around loop you will be able to do that.

We had a great time, Gary was very informative on the wild life and history of St Augustine..well worth every penny!!
