I totally didn't think this was worth the money. We'd been to St. Augustine a number of times and knew how bad the traffic can get, so we decided the best way to get to the sights would be the trolley. We even bought coupons online for buy-one-get-one free (ebay), which I was glad we did since tickets are $21/ppl . The trolley does take you to all the sights, and the drivers' speeches were great, but they advertise that the trolleys run every 15 minutes. We found it to be more like 30 and felt like we spent WAY too much time waiting around for the trolley when most of the parking lots (Old Jail, Fountain of Youth, Castillo) were empty and we could have parked with no problem.

A good way to see the city, but if you're looking specifically just for transportation save your money and take your own car.

We purchased trolley tickets to avoid the hassle of driving all over and looking for places to park. We were pleased with the tours; no two drivers had the same tour, but the all included the same basic information. We learned about the city and were able to receive discounts on some of the attractions.

We also took their ghost tour and loved it. Some would find it hokey because of the characters and the find the book premise, but we thought it was cute and even the guides made fun of their own hokeyness. I would recommend a later tour time so that you can avoid having young children on the tour. I found the crying infant and overly tired four year old a bit distracting, not to mention the 4 yr old was a bit frightened. This should be a tour for older children.

The best way to see and learn the history of St Augustine and America. We took the complete tour and then continued back to several points of personal interest. Getting off and on was easy. A great way to walk and ride whether you are 20 or 70

We just returned from our first trip to St. Augustine, Purchased tickets on line for the Old Town Trolley before leaving home and saved a few dollars. We loved riding the trolley and being able to get on & off at 20 different stops. All the drivers were very friendly & helpful except one by the name of Gaines. We were on his last train of the day and he was very frustrated with traffic and made smart remarks to a woman who was helping a child off the trolley for taking too long. He was really a grump!
Would recommend taking the trolley. Can also get other discount tickets for attractions at the trolley booth. We saved $4 on each adult Alligator farm ticket.

Our family goes to St Augustine several times a year and we always use Old Town Trolley. The guides are very friendly and very helpful. They will gladly answer any questions you have about attraction, restaurants etc and be honest about it. This is the only way to go for us. We love the ride and the history
