After the initial trolley ride, your guide will show the Plaza de la Constitucion as you make your way across the street to the Municipal Marina to board the Victory III for a 75 minutes narrated boat tour.

During the narrated boat tour you will cruise by the St Augustine fort, Castillo de San Marcos and the St Augustine lighthouse and observe the St Augustine Fountain of Youth site in the distance. In addition you will observe birds and marine species including dolphins.

Once on land, your guide will show you the art district; the US oldest street, Aviles street; the Lightner Museum with its impressive garden and it magnificent indoor swimming pool and will finish with a visit to Flagler College, formerly the Hotel Ponce de Leon to admire its impressive vestibule and rotunda and take a glance of the world famous Tiffany glass windows observable from the vestibule.

After the guided walking tour you will have a chance to finish the trolley tour or spend time in downtown St Augustine at your leisure and enjoy the trolley for two additional days included in the price of the tour.
