Words From Our Guests
Amazing !! Chance was the best tour guide we had on our trip. We did multiple tours both ghost and non ghost and this was our very favorite tour. My mom messed he foot up walking all day and everyone was very patient with her super slow walk- that being said, if you can't walk long distances this is the tour for you. Entertaining, and very educational. We had a blast - chance really made the tour! We captured some possible ghosts too on our cameras

What a Great way to learn about the history of St Augustine! Chance was Amaziing! Not only was he extremely knowledgeable but he was kind and helpful with his suggestions. .. We are so happy we decided on the golf cart tour! As an extra bonus, we were able to see over 50 dolphins on the boat tour. It was also fun to see many of the attractions from the sea! I highly recommend this tour if you’re interested in learning about the oldest city! It won’t disappoint:) We were a family of 5 including our daughter and grandchildren age 8 and 12

Best tour ever had in St. Augustine and have done several others in years past. The golf cart tour showed me places other tours did not and the history given was much richer and more extensive. The boat tour was the same way. Both were great. Highly recommend.

A family week in St. Augustine was topped off by the tour with Chance. He was very attentive to our 93 year old Mother, who takes a little more time to get from one vehicle to the other. The information was exactly what we had hoped for. Unfortunately it was our last day but the overview has left us wanting to return for a more in-depth exploration of all of the city's offerings.

I love how knowledgably our tour guide was, both of them. The captain of the book knew a lot of extra stories because he lived there his entire life and the land tour young man was excellent. He knew the history and every question we threw at him he knew the answer, even where the best waffles, chocolate, and ice cream was.

just need to add a picture of our 2 some plus, our dog, Daisy. Had a great tour and got lots of information.

This was a WONDERFUL way to see the sights of St Augustine by land and water! The golf cart was comfortable and the four of us were joined by 2 other couples. You stay on the golf cart - it's not a hop on and off (except to see the statue of David!). Our guide was friendly, interesting and provided a super overview of the area and key sights. We then joined the boat cruise which was scenic and provided us some additional history and opportunity to see areas not accessible from the land - the views were spectacular. This was well worth the 2.5 hours we spent and very affordable. GREAT way to see the sights in a few hours and then decide what you want to go back to explore your key interests later. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

We took the combination Golf Cart and Boat tour which took about 2.5 hours in total. Our golf cart guide Luis was friendly, interesting and took us to the key sights and a few off the beaten path. There were four in our group and four others on the golf cart. This is a tours that you don't hop on and off - (except to see the statue of David!). It was followed by our boat tour -which provided beautiful views of the city and also accessed park areas which you couldn't get to in the golf cart or other tour. Again - it's not an on or off - just sit back and relax. It was a fun filled and enjoyable 2.5 hours and provided a great overview of the city and sights - which we could then decide which to go back to explore. We highly recommend the combination tour!
31st March 2023
I took a Golf cart tour. The description said 9 people max but there were 10 and since I was the last to arrive, even before the start time, I had to sit at the back facing backwards. The description makes it seem like we would stop places but you don't. It's basically an expensive way to get an overview of the town with a very small amount of history thrown in.
30th March 2023
My friends and I had a great time on this golf cart's tour! Chance made our tour. He was informative and personable. I would recommend this tour!
