About this trip

Since being founded by the Spanish in 1565, St. Augustine has been a showcase of history, architecture, and culture. First settled as a Spanish military outpost, St. Augustine's Spanish heritage and culture can still be found throughout the old town. Our four days in St. Augustine begin as we arrive in this treasured, southern city. 


After checking into the hotel, you will have time to enjoy the welcoming storefronts as you are free to roam along St. George Street in Old Town St. Augustine for an afternoon of self-exploration. We will meet for dinner to share stories and seafood along the Intracoastal Waterway. After dinner, you are free to travel down to the Prohibition Kitchen or Tiny Martini Bar for live music, enjoy an evening horse and carriage ride, or retire to your room to get a good night's rest. 

Day two will include a trolley tour of St Augustine's artistic and cultural contributions, and stops at numerous historical sites including Castillo de San Marcos, the Colonial quarter, and Flagler College. We will be sure to leave plenty of time for you to enjoy dinner and an evening at your own pace. 


After breakfast at the hotel, day three will begin with a morning tour of the Fountain of Youth Archaeological park. Considered Florida's oldest attraction, you will have time to explore the various sites at the park. After lunch, together, you will have plenty of time in the afternoon on your own, before we enjoy a live theatre production at Limelight Theatre. Day four will include a stop for lunch, on your own, as we travel back home.

It was a great day trip. The transportation was clean and easy, our lunch was very good, and the experience as a whole was great fun. Our host, Mark, made sure that we were well taken care of. Definitely would travel with him again.

I thought the trip was well planned, well organized and well executed. Mark worked extremely hard to make it as easy as possible for the elderly seniors in our group--and he excelled expectations--GREAT JOB!! Getting in the HD backyard event went very smooth, he handled everything! Entering the stadium was also a breeze, thanks to Mark--Good job Again! We had good seat---50 yard line would have been slightly better. May be next time a box seats-IOI! Mark also got everyone to the bus in a very orderly manner with no delays. The bus was very nice, better then the last one to Greenville (BMW). The driver did a great job too! Smooth ride, got us there on time and maneuvered that big rig like a toy car!! Mark has very good communication skills and anticipates the needs of his customers---a real asset! When possible, we'll definitely travel with this organization again--first class!!! Keep up the good work, it is much appreciated! Darrell and Mary Woulf

I enjoyed this trip from beginning till the end. Was looking forward to see the Stadium and the surroundings. Everything was well organized, bus was nice and in best condition, the driver was very friendly and knew where she was going and was managing all the traffic very well. Mark was very caring and was very well prepared. The food at the Pre Party was good and the drinks too. The seats at the stadium where at a good spot to overlook the stadium and the game. Disappointing for me was the noise level in the stadium, older ears and heads somethings can't swollow steady noise for a longer time. Next time I would bring Earplugs or a head set. Great trip and well organized!

We loved downtown Greenville… especially the parks. Thanks for keeping us informed about where to meet , times, and your contact information. Also we appreciated the lunch recommendations. The BMW tour was great!
