Your review touched me so much. Losing a parent is always so hard and we are so proud that you chose to share that time with us and him while you were here in St. Augustine. While you have our deepest sympathies on his passing, it always makes us feel good to know that we have played a positive part... More

Had a great tour. Perfect way to see the city. Our driver "Smoky" was very entertaining. Plenty of stops along the way where we could get off and on

It appears the two different tour train companies I looked into operate in the same manner and are equally competent. We chose this one when I learned it gives a sizable discount for those 55 and older. Smokey was an awesome guide. He added lots of tidbits he has gleaned through his own research, was polite and friendly, and made... More

The knowledge that Smokey had and his little "extras" made every minute we were on the red train enjoyable! As a life long learner I can definitely say I learned a lot today!

We stayed on the whole route. Smokey was absolutely amazing. We are hoping to catch him again after his break. He has spent countless hours researching to give us the best tour possible. Just one example of how thought full he was, we were passing a local ice cream shop. He spelled it out so our three toddlers didn't know... More

My wife & I spent several days in town on vacation mid-April. We stayed at the Southern Oaks hotel on the northern end on St. Augustine - a very nice & reasonably priced hotel. Pleasantly surprised that one of the Red Train Tour stops was immediately across the street from the hotel. We took advantage and found the Red Train... More

First the ticket sales person was friendly and helpful even though she has probably answered the same questions dozens of times. She gave personal attention to me and several guests that I observed. Our guide was Duke who did a good job. Our party didn't get off at any stops although there were plenty of options. We wanted to see... More

Duke was a humorous tour guide. Learned so much about the history and personal family background about him growing up there. Took us all over. Awesome job!

We took the Train twice and enjoyed it both times. Smokey's tour was the best. The Smokey extras are very funny. The Train is also "Pet Friendly". You can take your Dog and get off Downtown and do some Shopping, Enjoy an Ice cream, have a drink, Eat a Meal and buy some Souvenirs.
