"great for the money"
October 2015
It was my first timeIn St Augustine and I did not know where to start. But because of the trolley service I was able to see all the sights and more and since the driver was very knowledgeable I learned about the history then I would ever have on my own. I would recommend this for anyone visiting St Augustine for the first time

We opted to take the trolly to help explore the city, it was a great decision. The drivers were knowledgeable and explained a lot of the history. And when the rain started, they were fast with passing out the ponchos.

We have taken such trolley rides in other major cities and find that it is a good way to see a town's main sights, hear a little about its history, then decide where to hop off and explore (especially with kids who don't want to walk everywhere). Our driver (Tracy) was informative and a very cautious driver. The Main Depot at the site of the Old Jail has a snack bar and gift shop if you need to wait for the trolley, which departs every 15 minutes. There are plexiglass separators between each row for safety, too.

We were lucky enough to have Davey as our driver for our first full loop. He was well versed in the history of the area and very friendly. The other drivers we had to get to some of the destinations did not mention some of the things he did and also changed the stories a little bit. BB was so obsessed with a little boy that got on that that's all she seemed to talk about until he got off. The tour was about an hour and a half with 22 stops, most of which are very close together but have different points of interest. The most interesting area was Lincolnville. There is a great Dominican/Greek Cafe at the "wax museum" stop that we would not have seen without the trolley using the parking lot for a turnaround. Stop by for a great Greek frappe! I really wish the tours would run into the evening as it is sooo hot from 9-4:30. They have plexiglass between each row for Covid (and I'm glad they do) but when the trolley isn't moving it becomes a sauna. I would definitely recommend this tour so you can see what all St Augustine has to offer. 3 days was not enough to experience the beach and all the historic landmarks. Can't wait to go back. (In cooler weather). Thank you Davey! P. S. The people at the ticket window are incredibly unfriendly. They did not even say what to do with the trolley stickers or where to go. I had the exact same negative experience with them in May 2019 when I purchased jail and old store tickets. They don't seem to offer information that would be helpful at all. Not sure why they are so unhappy. The people in the trolley stop on the other hand were very upbeat and helpful.

The audio in our trolly was crappy and we found t always make out what driver was saying. However, everything we did understand was fantastic. We had Kendall as a guide and she was funny, informed, upbeat, aware of what people were doing and keeping us safe. Do this first so you can see all 24+ sites in the city and then decide where you wanna go back to!
