I took a visit down to St. Augustine today with my daughter and grandparents and had a wonderful time on the Red Train. First let me start by saying that I manage a tour company in Savannah so I know a little bit about tourism and hospitality. I chose the Red Train because I know how scripted and canned the... More

For the past ten years I have been visiting St. Augustine as an educator with a group of fourth grade students. The train tour has always been my absolute favorite part of the day. Visiting historical locations and hearing wonderful stories. It is quite common for students that are visiting with me to have only been in the same neighborhood... More

We took the Red Train because my husband and son love trains (as opposed to the other trolley service in town). The other trolley is a little bit cheaper overall, but it is still a convenient way to get around.
