This was such an educational and interactive unique experience! Roy was incredible as a tour guide, and professionally dealt with some drunken tourists while still in character. He even stayed behind after, to answer questions for the remaining group. So glad we decided to stop...More

The guided tour was lousy. Too bad because the building itself was interesting. The guided tour was performed with the tour guide acting as if he were an 1800’s inmate showing us as new inmates what would be our place of incarceration. The way the...More

My husband and I enjoyed this tour during our small honeymoon getaway. Our tour guide, Bucky, was really committed to his character, and he made it a fun learning experience!

We bought the trolly ride ticket which included the jail house and museum. The jail house tour was great and very informative. The tour guide dressed as a prisoner was excellent and definitely got into his character. Definitely a must when visiting St.Augustine.

This was a fun tour of the oldest Jail. We had a funny and knowledgeable guide take us through the harsh conditions the prisoners had to endure way back when.

It was ok..not sure if I will ever go back. Lots of acting, props, etc. It was a cold evening which might have had an effect on what we experienced. The scariest part was being locked up in the dark...that was unpleasant.

This was a fun, entertaining tour with a guide in character (lasted about 30 min). Lots of interesting facts. I imagine taking the night ghost tour would be good spooky fun as well.

Hi...There is no charge for parking. When you want to see the old part of the city by tour train THEN you have to pay them.
