We stayed in St. Augustine over the 2011 Fourth of July following a stay infield at Daytona in our RV. It was kind of a last minute stop so we had not made any detailed plans. We often times take a carriage ride to view the towns we visit. Some tourguides are great some are so so, and some are downright pitiful. John C. was our tourguide and Scout was the horse. The weather was sweltering, but id did not matter as we really enjoyed John's narrative. He was pleasant, professional and accomodating. Allowing us to stop for rest breaks and beverage breaks when needed.I would highly recommend John C. to any one traveling to St. Augustine.

Tickets are good for three days. Every time you get on you hear something new. Each driver has a new twist to the stories. We really loved traveling around the city hopping off and on at our whim. I do suggest that you do not sit in the seats directly behind the driver. the engine is there and it is very hot and uncomfortable. Everyone who sat there ended up moving.

My Girlfriend and I took our second carriage ride with Kurt and Amos this past weekend. Our first tour with Kurt and Watson was in December and we knew that when we returned to Saint Augustine we must reunite with Kurt for relaxing ride and some laughs, so we made sure to ask for him by name. Kurt kept us and unsuspecting pedestrians laughing with his continuous witty banter and one-liners. Kurt’s tour offers something for everyone, whether you looking for an educational historic tour with a few ghost stories, or a relaxing romantic ride through an ancient city. Kurt’s comedic style and energy will leave you with a memorable experience that is sure to be a highlight of your trip. A carriage ride with “our buddy” Kurt has become a Saint Augustine tradition for us.

My husband and I just took our 3 year old (pirate obsessed) and 2 year old boys, along with my mother in law, on a 2onderful carriage ride with Kurt and Mr. Watson...it was the best part of our day trip to St. Augustine. Kurt was extremely knowledgeable, very comedic and made sure to keep the trip very interesting. My husband and I have already made plans to go back for a 2nd go around with the 2 of them. Make sure if you are considering a carriage ride, ask for Kurt and Mr. Watson!!!!!!!!!
