We have taken a few tours in St. Auggie for the past few years. But I have to admit. Take away the flair and commercialism most tours are doing these days, You end with a show ride, and half the truth about what really haunts this old creaky town. In fact most tours create false stories or exaggerated stories that... More

We are a local family who decided to spend Thanksgiving eve in downtown walking around. Our daughter wanted to pet the horses and the staff was very generous and careful in allowing this and she begged us for a ride and we couldn't really afford it, but your guide Benji and that big wonderful horse Mac was the hit of...

Kurt, our driver was hilarious and we loved every minute of our carriage ride. Mr. Watson was very well-behaved and has a great personality. The tour was much more than we could have imagined. Thanks Kurt!

Our driver was Kurt and the horse was Watson. My wife and I simply enjoyed Kurt. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Saint Augustine. Watson was a terrific horse. Loved the fact that this horse did not like to walk through puddles. The $75 was well worth it! Looking forward to our next trip to Saint Augustine. Will... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the ride through historic St. Augustine. I would highly recommend it> We took the 30 minute ride, and Kurt, our driver put on an `improv` show the entire time. Most of the pedestrians thought it was hilarious, too. Watson, the horse was very friendly, also. Was very well worth it.

We stayed in St. Augustine over the 2011 Fourth of July following a stay infield at Daytona in our RV. It was kind of a last minute stop so we had not made any detailed plans. We often times take a carriage ride to view the towns we visit. Some tourguides are great some are so so, and some are... More
