Very interesting tour. Starts outside where you can see the gallows and then continue inside and get the feel of a jail cell. Very informative and fun place to visit.

We started at the Old Jail for the Old Town Trolley Tours, and decided to do the jail tour. It was interesting and fun. You are treated like a 'prisoner' and learn some interesting facts. Our guide was very humorous. There is even a gallows in the back. Highly recommend this tour as a starting point.

If you want to visit this attractin, it's lie everything in St. Augustine, its old with information on how cruel and unfair the jail system was in the 1600s up. Comical are the characters who make you laugh when telling the stories of the Old Jail

Fun for all ages. Family oriented. The tour guide is detailed and very historical and fact oriented. The Hop on Hop off trolley makes stops frequently. The tour is about an hour and is it very interesting

Went here on a night time ghost tour. Very eerie at night and of course the tour guides try to spook you and make it fun. Very interesting for history buffs.

During the tour the thought of the conditions of this old jail makes one wonder if the conditions of today's jail were the same as the old one, would there be so many in Jail today.

The stories about the jail was so informative and every part of the jail was explained. Saw old gallows where prisoners where hanged, inside jail cells, jail kitchen, rooms that Sheriff and his...
