We bought the trolly ride ticket which included the jail house and museum. The jail house tour was great and very informative. The tour guide dressed as a prisoner was excellent and definitely got into his character. Definitely a must when visiting St.Augustine.

This was a fun tour of the oldest Jail. We had a funny and knowledgeable guide take us through the harsh conditions the prisoners had to endure way back when.

This was a fun, entertaining tour with a guide in character (lasted about 30 min). Lots of interesting facts. I imagine taking the night ghost tour would be good spooky fun as well.

Hi...There is no charge for parking. When you want to see the old part of the city by tour train THEN you have to pay them.
