I really liked the informal aspect of this tour. Hearing about a local and their life in Key West. It is a rare thing now to have a one-man show. Not a homogenized blabber about the town and dull blah blah. I want to go down the back streets and hear what types of houses this is and that...stop and... More

Lloyd took us on some off the beaten path and that I like a lot. we tried all kinds of fruit right off peoples trees as we went by. I do think they need to check there cycles out every night for stuff like low air cuz one of the girls in our group had low tires and it wore... More

I have been coming to KW for over 13 years and have done Lloyds tour at least 12 times. This tour is not only informative, (his knowledge of the plant life on the island is second to none) but is also extremely entertaining, (he is a true Key West "character" in the best sense of the word). Over the years... More

Waited an extra day to go on this tour. It was highly recommended to us by the on-base Navy ITT travel tours office. Problem was we visited virtually no historic sites like Hemingway's home or Truman's Little White House. Enjoyed the flora fauna discussions, but going into Floyd's house to play percussion instruments was not really what we'd sought. We... More

Thank you for your response. Your comment is factual accept my name is Lloyd not Floyd and if anyone researches my tour via my website, brochures,descriptions found in guide books and magazines it's clearly demonstrated that my tour does not centralize on history or tourist attractions. Based on the information provided for this activity I should receive 5 stars for... More

This was a very unique, interesting tour that offers a perspective of Key West that only a hippie from the Bronx that's been there since 1972 can provide. Lloyd takes you through the back streets and alleys and talks about architecture, plants and fruits, and many other interesting things. The pace is very leisurely and laid back. You don't need...

At the heart of Key West are the Conchs-born and raised. Then there are the Freshwater Conchs-those who come and never go back. There are those who come to party and go wild, those who come expecting something else and those who come to be someone else-even for a few days. Wherever you find yourself, you would be remiss to...

I took Lloyd's Bike Tour of Key West in late February. Since I brought my own bike I could have easily toured it myself. But, Lloyd's colorful,interesting personality and his eagerness to share his knowledge of everything Key West from its history and people to its flora and fauna made the tour's $35.00 cost worth every penny and then some...

This bike tour definitely strays from the more tourist-y areas of Key West. We rode through residential streets and parks and stopped often to taste various fruit that grow in the area. We took a trip to the "real" local's southernmost point and stopped at nature reserve and a spice garden along the way. He avoids taking you to the... More

Not being the best bike rider, we thought this tour might save some dignity :) It was the best! We took more back streets and avoided heavily trafficked areas...we saw and sampled fruits and nuts as we peddled along, went to the real southernmost point, and even had a jam session and a headstand of two when Lloyd invited us...

Lloyd is the guy you want to meet to (1) really see Key West and (2) just have a blast with. I felt like I was with an old buddy from back in the day.
