I wanted a tour of all the major points of St. Augustine because my trip was brief and the Red Train Tour with Duke was just what I was looking for. I went at 9 am and the non-stop round trip tour took about an hour and a half, just as advertised. My only con with the Red Train Tour... More

So when we planned our trip to SA all the advertising was for OTTT. I fully intended to utilize their services. Our hotel suggested RTT and I'm so glad they did. First, RTT is slightly less expensive and has more stops. That was a plus. But let's get real, the reason you take a tour is to hear the description... More

We checked 2 of the leading tours in St Augustine. This one cost us less than the other tour. I thought all of the guides were excellent. The only reason I would recommend the other tour would be the wait times. Sometimes the other tour company has 2 trollies before we saw one from the the Red train tour. Excellent... More

I've lost count of the number of times we've toured with Red Train over the years, starting when my now 14 year old was 8, but by far my favorite drivers are Smokey and Cheryl. Smokey's knowledge and humor make his tours a 'don't miss it and don't get off the train' treat. Cheryl's dry humor and knowledge make her... More

This was our first time taking the Red Train and we really enjoyed ourselves! We had a few different drivers all of which we really enjoyed and enjoyed each one had their own spin but one definitely stood out, Smokey! Even my 9 year old noticed his love for what he does and that he goes the extra mile with... More

We bought a three day ticket and with the senior discount it was a great value. Our sales agent Treva? i think her name, was VERY informative and gave great suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The second day we spoke with Bobbi, who also was very informative and friendly. Our favorite driver was a Wicked Awesome... More

The Red Train offered a discount for their hop off/on tour of the city. Smokey was an entertaining engineer (driver) with fascinating facts about all of the sites! We hopped off in the old city and was disappointed that we had to wait over 35 minutes for another train for us to continue our tour. The next driver was not... More

Bought three day passes,.....The people who drive the vehicles all give their individual slants on the tours....Easy on and off and 20 minute spacing between trains...Depending on traffic......We road the full trip the first time to get an idea of where what and how then we hop scotched trains to the different places we wanted to visit....The two starting points...

We had a great time on our stay and it was made much better by the Red Train Tours. It got us every where we wanted to go and gave us more ideas of things to see. They have absolutely great tour guides. Our favorites were Smokey and Scotty, Ray who only drives on Fridays was good to. There was... More
