Key West is great if you have never been. Lots of Florida history, railroads, museums, food and beer! Catch the Conch Train near Mallory Square. We did not buy the tickets through our cruise ship or the Conch Train Office. If you bypass the first “Office” and go to one of the carts, you can bargain your price down (I... More

Gets you around to pre-determined stops in Key West - but if you're like me and you want to see where the locals go and not the tourists, walk.

My husband and I decided to take a tour on the train after we say the trains going by the city. Our tour guides were quite hilarious and had a lot of facts to share about Key West. We had our 11month old who loved the train ride.

We took the train to learn more about Key West and see more than just Mallory Square. It did a nice job for giving us an overview of the area. Our train driver had a nice dry sense of humor, and pointed out many architectural elements in town that we would not have found by ourselves.

This was our second trip to Key West and we should have taken this tour last year. It is a great way to find local history and scenic areas of Key West. The tour guides are well versed in Key West legacy and you will enjoy all 90 minutes.

This was a great way to see a lot more of Key West than we otherwise would have. The hop-on, hop-off was pretty limited, but it was useful a couple of times. The tour guides can definitely make or break your experience. The second train we were on had a great guide (Capt. Rich?), he was funny, interesting, and made... More

We decided to take the tour to get familiar with Key West and to determine what attractions to visit. What a great idea. The guides were very well informed about Key West History and we obtained valuable insight into inidividual attractions (Hemingway House as an example) as well as the best routes to take from our Hotel on Duval Street...
