This a ridiculous waste of your money! Take the Trolley around St. Augustine, and as you go decide what you want to see. Don't believe the ticket people who tell you to see the jail, or store, or museum that are at the first Trolley stop. Cheesy terrible tourist TRAP!!!!

The beginning of the tour which includes a tour guide is pretty interesting and entertaining. The middle portion was a bit less entertaining and the last portion was a self guided tour. I think after touring the Old City Jail, my expectations were pretty high. Nonetheless, I'm glad to have taken the tour but won't need to re-experience it.

If you have been to one old store museum, you have been to them all. This was boring and we left in middle of tour. Nothing spectacular to see here folks.

It was kinda blah. Like a cute little show. But seemed really rehearsed and fake. Something to do over by the jail. I would prob skip. Waste of money

Both our first Guide in the front of the Store, along with the 2nd Guide in the back half, were knowledgeable and personable as they made this journey back in time even more fascinating with demonstration. There is so much history to see, I look forward to a return visit in order to take it all in.
