We started off with smokey as our guide and had a fantastic time! He kept us alert and entertained. Other guides were good.

While the concept of riding a train around Saint Augustine, rather than driving around trying to find a parking space was good, this company needs some improvement. The drivers were less than enthusiastic and one even burped into the microphone. We parked at station #1, but were told that the train couldn't return us there. We had to wait in... More

Take the Red Train early before the crowds and stay on for the entire loop to see where everything is. You can walk to most sights after that. Later in the day the train gets crowded and the waits are long.

Thank you so much for sharing your review. We do tend to get busier as the day goes on, but we do work hard at keeping the trains on schedule every 15 to 20 minutes. Every now and again, there may be an accident or something that ties us up for a few minutes, but we get back on schedule... More

We chose to take the Red Train Sightseeing Tours of St. Augustine this trip, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. We purchased our ticket on sight of the St. Augustine Visitors Center ( next to the city parking garage which features all-day parking for a measly $10, and it is next door to everything!), boarded the train there as well, and...

We are new to visiting the area so we wanted to get an overview of the city....blown away! Fell more in love with St. Augustine. It was my mom, my husband, my daughter (3) and myself and we all had a blast. The tour guides are great and extremely funny as well as informative. Thank you

We have just spent a fantastic day touring St Augustine in the company of our tour guide Smokey on the Red Train Tour bus. He has only been working this job for 5 weeks but he's obviously a natural - we loved all Smokey's extra info about the city! Loved the tour!
