This was our second trip to St. Augustine Florida and we once again took the Red Train Tour. Smokey was a fantastic tour guide. He includes 'Smokey extras' which are his in depth research for his tour. He is the best and most entertaining!

We do offer a less expensive ticket called a “Once around.” On this tour, you do not get on and off and you just take the tour which lasts a little over an hour. Maybe that would be a good option and save you some money... More
