“Fun & interesting tour stop.”
Review of Old Jail

Old Jail
Ranked #22 of 137 things to do in St. Augustine
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed this stop on our most recent visit to St. Augustine. Our tour guide was "Deputy Delilah Doright". She was a hoot! She stayed TOTALLY in character at all times. The only possible downside to this was that we were reticent to stop her to ask questions. Overall it was a fun & informative tour.

I think the tour could have been made without a guide and been almost as enjoyable. Although the attempts were made to make it appealing and memorable with old jail stories and artifacts it was bland. I am sure the ghost tours at night are much better than the plan Old Jail tour.

An enjoyable air conditioned historic site. Our knowledgable guide Winnie kept us informed and entertained. Old time arcade and gift shop next door.
