The Old Jail, according to a 9 and a 11 year old is the best place in all of St. Augustine. Our guide was James and even though I'm sure it's scripted he did a phenominal job of entertaining the masses.

Been to St. Augustine numerous times but 1st time doing this tour, it was fantastic! Our prisoner guide was very informative and she made the information fun. If you go look for prisoner 8675309...Jenny.

Very enjoyable tour! The tour guide (Deputy) role plays with you as if you are a new convict and he is taking you around to acquaint you with your new "home". Truly entertaining and educational. Normally $9.00 we got it for $6.00 as part of the Trolley Combo. It's on the same lot as the Oldest Store Museum Experience and... More

Took friends to St. Augustine and went to the Old Jail. The actor, Deputy Sam Fisher was fantastic. He explained everything with humor and we had a lot of fun. I would recommend this attraction.

I first thought I would not like the old jail but it turned out to be a fun experience. A sherriff told us the history of the jail, locked us up, and eventually granted us a pardon. The little kids even got a sherriff's star. Great fun!

We bought the old jail that is supposed to be haunted like a few other buildings in the city. This was one of the places we wanted to visit when we bought the package that included the green trolley also. We really enjoyed the history of this 450 year old city. You get processed in the jail like prisoners then... More

The tour is done in character from late 1800s. The history is fascinating and the tour guide Jimmy was knowledgeable and interesting. The Old Town Trolley CO is veery good.

The visit to the old Jail was part of the "Ghost Tour" taking one evening. Was not impressed with the presentation, poor acting, and the actor had horrible body odder. I know it was hot but, really.
