We can arrange any Field Trip you want!
We make all reservations, supply guides, and give you a detailed price list with no money due to us until field trip day. Our one price one person field trip has many options to choose from. Our price includes guides for your day, all itineraries and any or all of the following items:

Colonial or Timucua Kids Outdoor Classroom

Choose one of the programs we offer for in school field
trips outdoors in St. Augustine. You get all
the hands-on fun as part of your field trip day. Some of the activites may not be included
due to space and time limitation in St. Augustine.

Castillo de San Marcos Exterior Walk

We no longer offer interor guided tours of the Castillo de San Marcos to new schools due to the increase in costs.  These costs can be very expensive for schools.  We can offer perimeter tours but if you want to go inside the fort for a reduced rate and in some cases free with the “Every Kid in the Park Passes,” you must book as an educational group.  These self-guided slots must be booked by teachers.  The Castillo de San Marcos will give you all the information you need.

You can book your own self-guided tours by email or phone: or 904-829-6508 extension 239

We will arrange your itinerary around this information if you want us to.  We are not responsible for any arrangement you make with the Castillo De San Marcos.
