“Loved riding the Conch Train!”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

My family and I took the tour on the Conch train ride while we were in Key West, Florida. Since we didn't have much time to spend in Key West taking this tour gave us a great tour of the city as well as a lot of historical information about the city. It takes around one and a half hours for the whole tour. It will be longer if you choose to get off and spend more time at America's southernmost place. If you get off there you can wait for another train to pick you up. This is called a train but I really would call it a tram ride, kind of like they have in the Disney World parking lots. This ride was a lot of fun and easier than having to walk everywhere. We spent our time later walking around and visiting some of the shops and had lunch before we had to leave town and drive back to Orlando.

“Tommy was the best”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

This has got to be a must for anyone who visits the island, even if only for a day. A place ripe with history is shown off by people who love it, and it shows. When we visited, our guide was Tommy, and he did an amazing job explaining the soul of Key West.
Thanks, Tommy.

“A nice trip around the key.”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

The tour took about an hour and a half and wove in and out between commercial and residential areas and certainly covered the island well. We found the constant patter from the driver to get pretty old but to be fair there is a lot to see. It would be easy to pick out the sites you want to visit after the tour.
