This tour will help you experience this unique city filled with colonial neighborhoods, magnificent buildings and charms all it's own. 

Old Town Trolley Tours offers a convenient way to get around town and learn all about St. Augustine's amazing history.

Then, your tour guide will take you to the Old Jail. According to visitstaugustine.com: "This historic jail served the city of St. Augustine from 1891-1953. Visitors can take tours of the jail during the day or night, experiencing history as inmates in period dress guide them through the women’s cells, men’s cells, and the maximum security cells where only the most dangerous criminals were kept. The Old Jail's unique history is full of fascinating stories about individual inmates that once occupied the cells and the sheriffs (and their families!) who lived just across the hall from them."

Then, you will travel to the Old Florida Museum where you will participate in the Florida Cracker program. According to oldfloridamuseum.com: "In 1821, the United States bought Florida from Spain. Homesteading was encouraged by the government to develop the newly acquired territory. The rugged pioneers that settled the area were called "Florida Crackers." It is believed that they got this nickname because of the cracking sound their whips made as they herded cattle. In 1845 Florida became the 27th state of the Union. Students will learn to appreciate these modern times when participating in daily living activities from the pioneer area."

Then, you will tour the Flagler Memorial Presbyterian Church. Henry Flagler built the church after his daughter's death in 1889. Mr Flagler, his first wife, daughter, and granddaughter are buried in the mausoleum that is on the property.
