    The drivers are great and with the ability to get on and off at any of the stops for the duration of the day really gives you a great value for your money. Super knowledgeable. Covered a lot of very cool sights.

    Aim for the trolleys without individual windows. It can get pretty warm on ones where you have to open windows. :)

    Great tour of the city.
    Big Thanks to Carl 'Big C' Awesome.
    Only had a few houers in town, so we hopped on the trolley and was not disapointed.
    Tried the one in San diego on an earlier trip, and this one is just as fun/intertaining.

    Only problem is that it some times is hard to hear the speak from driver, due to noisy trafic.
    But we got all the bad jokes.

    Convenient way to visit the historic downtown. The tour guides are friendly and informative. If you park by Visitors Center, make sure you get a pass to park for free. Our ticket guy had forgotten to give it to us, so we had to pay for parking at the end of the day.

    I have been on the tour a couple of times and found the drivers very interesting and informed. The information and history you get while on the tour is really a matter of the luck of the draw in getting a good guide or a mediocre one. I have heard 4 so far. Nette was awesome. Spoke slowly, told us to look when we could actually see and then also pointed. Excellent. Terry was also very good. He spoke haltingly and while it was fine for me - others had to really listen to catch it all. An older man did not stick to script and did his own thing....Read More

Spoke slowly, told us to look when we could actually see and then also pointed. Excellent. Terry was also very good. He spoke haltingly and while it was fine for me - others had to really listen to catch it all. An older man did not stick to script and did his own thing. He asked a lot of questions like a teacher and I found that since I had been around a couple of times, because there is just so much to see and hear, that he really missed some key things that the others pointed out. I don't remember his name - I didn't stay on long with him as it was all about him being a resident here for so long. All in all it was a good tour though however, the ticket checking thing is ridiculous when you have a lot of people. In Ste. Augustine you could get a reasonably priced ticket for hop on and hop off for 4 days. I had to pay an additional 10 for one extra day so to get my value out of it - I'll probably start at the very beginning of the day and go until 5. There is a lot to see.
