What To Expect

A vacation in Central Florida not only puts you in the theme park capital of the world, but also gives you speedy access to the oldest colonial settlement in the United States of America: St. Augustine. Prepare for a full-day in a city that’s full of Spanish-Colonial architecture, delightful dining, and reportedly more than a few ghosts roaming around.

This 10-hour excursion begins with pick-up in Orlando, Kissimmee, or Lake Buena Vista. Your first stop is the Old St. Augustine Village where the pedestrian throughway St. George Street is lined with shops and restaurants.

Many of the buildings in this area date back to the 1700s, including the Oldest Wooden School House in the country, which you’ll pass by. You’ll have free time to wander around the historic district, popping into pubs or sampling sweet treats. Be sure to visit the Castillo de San Marcos before driving back to Orlando.

We had a fantastic time...
Frederick_D, Apr 2024
We had a fantastic time together in St Augustine, our driver was polite, friendly and has excellent knowledge about Florida and St Augustine
The perfect day trip
Tanya_B, Apr 2024
Ishmael was a wonderful shuttle driver, he went above and beyond to make sure everyone on the trip enjoyed our day. The bus was comfortable and the ride was not too long. St. Augustine was fun to explore and the hop on hop off trolley was the perfect way to get around the city
Enjoyable day in St Augustine
Corrina_J, Mar 2024
A lovely day out in St Augustine, the hop on and off trolley is a very good to get to all of the attractions and Kevin who transported us from Orlando.
A wasted day!!
Erica_R, Mar 2024
Kevin, the driver was a nice guy. He got us to and from our destination safely. I paid extra for “ a historic tour”. No one could tell me where it was. I called the main office and they were no help! They gave me an address that turned out to be a pub. I never got my tour!! Saint Augustine is a dump. Don’t go! What a waste of a day!!
Great but long day
Taniya_O, Mar 2024
The best part for me was the scenic cruise as we were lucky enough to see dolphins which was amazing ! It's a lovely place to go but it's a very long day. Lots of cute little shops and places to eat and drink. Then there is lots of history aswell. So if that's your type of thing you would definitely enjoy. I didn't get the time to do gator farm but that definitely sounds like it's worth visiting. Thanks to Kevin our driver he was friendly throughout.
Wonderful time--we are already planning for a next time
Audrey_N, Mar 2024
This was a great experience! Kevin, our driver, gave us an enjoyable ride from Orlando to St Augustine and gave very clear directions about where and when we needed to go to make our tour a success. We ended up doing the historic tour of the colonial quarter, which was very cool-- we were on an interactive tour to see and hear about what life was like for the early European settlers. There was also a watchtower that gave us a great view of St Augustine from higher up. The trolley was also a good deal. It makes stops at several points of interest around town, and you can hop on/hop off as you arrive at locations you want to experience up close. I recommend the Villa Zorayda, which is a historic home/museum with a guided audio tour and very cool architecture. The fort is also, of course, a must see. We definitely want to return to St Augustine and are likely to book this Grayline tour again when we do.
Day trip to Saint Augustine !
Rosemary_M, Mar 2024
The ride to/from Saint Augustine was great. Our tour guide Kevin was wonderful! The hop-on-hop off was good abut also had some concerns. The first trolly we were on was with Ron - the Rocket. He spoke very fast, very loud and I had concern when multiple times people were getting off/ on the trolley and he would ring the bell to start up. I didn’t want to get off the trolley at a few stops because of that. The second trolley we were on was with Davey Jones. He was excellent! He definitely spoke at a slower pace and took more time letting people on off. The sites themselves were amazing !! Loved seeing the Fountain of Youth, the museums and Flagler College. A little Cafe near the whiskey museum is Parfait ! We had a fabulous lunch there. It’s European food- French-Spanish-Portuguese
The coach time was changed
Teresa_B, Mar 2024
None, we missed the tour due to last minute change in pick up time which was not received until after
Enjoyable tour

Lovely looking round the old town, enjoyed a nice lunch with live music Could have stayed longer, I felt the 4 o’clock pick up was a bit early especially with the traffic
