Our guide, Ungrie, was delightful: he left a lasting impression on my kids and me as to what it was like for folks who were put in this jail. Additionally, our trolley driver, "Mustang... More

We took the ghosts and ghouls tour of historical downtown Saint Augustine. Best part was the prison. Not too scary but full of stories. It was just ok.

This is a hop-on / hop-off tour by a little tram with the driver providing continual narrative throughout as you travel through the nation's oldest city. The tram is open-air, and all on one level, and makes a total of 23 stops throughout the very compact Old Town area. The trolley is in almost constant movement except at the designated... More

My son and I enjoyed walking through the wax museum and Ed & Elissa were so pleasant and informative while getting our tickets ready for the trolley. I love St. Augustine and Historic Tours of America, an asset to our hometown for sure !

This trolley is extremely reasonable. All of the employees were friendly and very knowledgeable. Some of them even dressed in costume. No question went unanswered. Would never have learned so much or covered so much land on our own, especially in the heat.

This is the only way to see St. Augustine. The tour is a hop-on, hop-off with plenty of stops throughout town. The streets are narrow, and parking is limited, so this tour allows you to see everything without no distractions. This was our 2nd tour with historic tours (first in Charleston, SC.) and would use this company again.

We purchased a Historic Trolley Tour package. There are many combinations you can choose. We purchased ours from the Welcome Center. If you stay on the Trolley, you get an 85 minute tour filled with history and funny stories. The Trolley makes 22 stops where you can get on/off to visit the Oldest Jail, Oldest School, Ponce De Leon Fountain... More
