We were the only ones on the tour so we asked a lot question and Kevin didn't let us down. We visited parts of the downtown historical area that we hadn't visited before. We learned about the Flagler family and the stories behind everything and the discovery of the St Augustine area. I was very informative. My only recommendation, bring your sunscreen....We forgot ours and we got a little burnt.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
So glad you had a great time. Sorry about the sunburn, its good advice, sunscreen, water and comfortable shoes!
