    My daughter and I wanted to see the lights in downtown St. Augustine and luckily I was paired up with Explore Tours and pickups! Calli, who was in the office was very helpful in making sure the tour guide knew where we wanted to go and gave us blankets for the ride since it was a tad chilly. Blaise, the tour guide was very knowledgable and even stopped the tour to make sure my daughter and I got our pictures taken with the lights! I Will definitely use Explore Tours and Pickups again, whether it's for a tour or just getting a quick ride from point A to point B. The service is great!
