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

One of the must things to do here. Learned lots of St. Augustine’s history. Very interesting. You can hop on and off to visit different places of interest. We had several tour guides and all were excellent. Well worth the price.

We were waiting for the trolley and he was pulling out as we wanted to board and kept saying the trolley has left the station. It was ridiculous. We did catch the next one. Robert did a nice job. A bit hard to hear, though. For me, I’d rather walk.

Even though we visited during the off-season the traffic was very heavy in St Augustine. We were glad to park the car in their free parking lot and use the trolley to see the city. The trolley is a hop on hop off so you can visit sites. The driver does a good job explaining all the sites and history.

We really enjoy trolley tours. We have taken them in many towns. St. Augustine has a lot of history to learn about. Traffic is heavy and frustrating. Parking is difficult. The trolley is fun and easy. You learn about what you may want to see more of. Special kudos go out to our tour guide David. He reminds you to keep your arms and legs inside the trolley, to exit the trolley as if it was a ladder and he has remembered to be awesome at the job he is doing. Nice ride. Worth your while. Ask for David.

Old town trolley is a hop off and on service that runs you around st Augustine to show you the basic highlights. Not as much history as I might have liked although the tidbits were enough to spark interest for further research, and a little too much promotion of local businesses for my taste but a good mode of transportation if walking is difficult.
