very enjoyable ride with a guide/driver who wanted to GsD and didn't want to chat all the time. In the morning everyone was very tired and knocked out on the drive home. Otherwise, the starting point in St. Augustine was very well chosen to jump straight into the trolley. Beautiful city with great buildings. We found it amazing that there are a lot of homeless people who are concentrated on the tourist sites.

St Augustine itself is great, definitely recommend doing the trolley tour. The only downside to the day was that is is advertised as a 2hr drive each way but the trip up was well over 3 hrs because the driver wanted to take a detour and show us things. But it was annoying as most of us just wanted to get to st Augustine and get sightseeing. The trip home was about 2.5 hrs
