We just took The Red Train for the Night of Lights Tour in St. Augustine with Mr. Ed. Had a great time . Mr. Ed was full of energy and had us all singing and shouting Christmas greetings to everyone on the streets. The lights were beautiful. Highly recommend this tour.

We picked the train up at the Fountain of Youth and Daphne was super funny, but her trip was short as she switched drivers with Benji...oh boy, what a fun tour we had with him! He was too funny and I hope next time we ride we take his tour again!
