Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Castillo de San Marcos National Monument, 1 S Castillo Dr, St. Augustine, FL 32084-3252

See this historic fortification built in the 17th century. The oldest masonry fort in the continental United States, the Castillo de San Marcos is a large Spanish stone fortress built to protect and defend Spain's claims in the New World. It's a National Monument and, at 325 years old, it's the oldest structure in St. Augustine.

Stop At: Huguenot Cemetery, A1A Orange Street, St. Augustine, FL 32084

The Huguenot Cemetery in St. Augustine, Florida located across from the historic City Gate was a Protestant burial ground between the years 1821 and 1884. Prior to American occupation the Spanish city of St. Augustine was predominately Catholic and the only burial ground within the city, the Tolomato cemetery, was reserved for Catholics. Recognizing a need for a formal Protestant burial ground an area just outside the city gate was chosen by the new American administration in St. Augustine. The first burials occurred in 1821 just prior to a yellow fever epidemic which claimed the lives of a large numbers of the city's inhabitants.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: St. George Street, St. George St, St. Augustine, FL 32084

Enter through the Old City Gates, built in 1808. St. George Street is the backbone of St. Augustine's historic district.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: St. Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine, 41 Saint George St, St. Augustine, FL 32084-3607

Just steps from St. Augustine’s historic city gates at St. George Street, the St. Photios Greek Orthodox National Shrine, an institution of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, is dedicated to the first colony of Greek people who came to America in 1768.

Stop At: Plaza de la Constitucion, 1 Cathedral Pl St George Street between King Street and Cathedral Place, St. Augustine, FL 32084

Historic park in the center of downtown St. Augustine. The original city plan was built out from this location. It is bordered by The Government House, the Cathedral Basilica, and the Bridge of Lions and Matanzas Bay. Spain's 1573 Law of the Indies, Leyes de los Indies, specified that colonial town plans set aside such a plaza for government, church and public use. Along coasts, plazas were to begin at the waterfront - to see and to be seen.

Duration: 10 minutes

Pass By: Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine, 38 Cathedral Pl, St. Augustine, FL 32084-4417

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine is a historic cathedral in St. Augustine, Florida, and the seat of the Catholic Bishop of St. Augustine. Constructed over five years (1793–1797), it was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark on April 15, 1970. Its congregation, established in 1565, is the oldest Christian congregation in the contiguous United States.

Pass By: Government House Museum, 48 King St, St. Augustine, FL 32084-4449

Government House dominates the west end of the Town Plaza, a unique Spanish land use component lying within a National Historic Landmark District. Along coasts, plazas were to begin at the waterfront - to see and to be seen. Since 1598, a government building has stood on this site with a view of the harbor landing, accommodating administrative headquarters and residences of colonial governors appointed by the Crowns of Spain, then Britain, then Spain again. After Spain ceded Florida to the United States in 1821, this current Government House served as a courthouse and briefly as a Capitol of the new Territory of Florida.

I thought this was going to be a food/drink tour. Ended up being a walking tour of the city with alot of repetitive history. You can see only so much Cocina. We went to three places. Half of what's on other tours in city. For the price of one tour I could have paid for both me and my sisters food...
