    Tom’s tour was excellent, entertaining and informative. We had a great time strolling around the historic part of St. Augustine. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the city but also gave us tips on restaurants and other things to see in the area. We would highly recommend taking Tom’s tour if you are in St. Petersburg.
