We had a Christmas music fueled blast thru the Christmas lit streets of Old St. Augustine !! People singing ,waving and laughing all the way. And our tour guide Benji was a blast !! He kept everything hopping while keeping a smile on your face. His knowledge of the history of the town was only surpassed by his need to make you smile. Every body needs to experience this at least twice 🙂

"Smokey made the tour!"

I took my three children on the tour and so enjoyed it! He kept it light and fun, and his knowledge was vast. It’s clear he enjoys history as his information made the city come to life. Also, seeing him be respectful and be patient with the seniors on board showed character. We had other drivers (who fussed at me for popping off a second snapping a pic of my kids while waiting for others to unload- they were unloading walkers so I knew it’d be a minute) they were fine, but Smokey and the red train tour made a wonderful memory for my children and me!

We so enjoyed the Red Train Tours !! We had Benji and later Smoky as our tour guides and they were very knowledgeable. There were many points of interest. We took the whole tour around first, and then we picked out the points of interest we wanted to walk around. A great service !! Very well organized !!

You can buy tickets at Ripley's museum. We were fortunate in having a entertaining and informative driver, I think his name was Benji. The train stops at various locations and you can explore and re-board to the next. You get information and history of the town.
