The trolley offered us an easy way to hear about the history of St. Augustine and see all the sites without having to walk or drive to each area. I would recommend starting right when they open so you have time to see everything, have lunch, take a wine or distillery tour by the time the last trolley loads at 4:30pm. There was always room on the next trolley to hop on and off, but it was a hotter day so that may have lessened the amount of people out. There is free parking at the main trolley pick up location that is the only thing that I was not aware of and we paid for parking in the main downtown parking garage. The experience was great, the trolley drivers were very informative, and my teenage boys enjoyed the day despite the heat.

I really enjoyed the trolley. The gentleman at the ticket booth was extremely helpful. He saw I was stressed over not being able to find my tickets and he approached me to help and we got it figured out. Preacher was an excellent tour guide! We rode the trolley all the way through and then got off at stops we were interested in the 2nd time around. We could have never seen the historic district in one day on our own!

Great way to tour the city! The first day, we rode an d made notes of the attractions we wanted to see. The second day, we hopped on and off while visiting them. The tour guides were all knowledgeable about the history and we learned a lot.

The trolley train drivers were very knowledgeable of St Augustine history and the station employees were friendly and helpful. The wait time between pick up was minimal.

Our guides were very knowledgeable, extremely friendly, funny. & helpful. I will definitely recommend to family & friends who are coming to St Augustine!
