The Conch Train was a great choice to introduce us to Key West and the lay of the land before we started to hit the individual places. We had a very good guide who provided an almost non-stop narrative of the 1 1/2 hour tour. And later that day the "get on/get off" feature helped save our legs. Well worth... More

Just "happened" to find conch train tour when I was walking around. It was the highlight of my Key West visit! The tour guide was fun, engaging, knowledgable and I would highly recommend this tour to get an overview of the island before deciding on what to do - GREAT!!!

In February my husband and I and some friends took the ferry to Key West for the day. After arriving, we decided to take the train ride around the island. Since it was our first trip to Key West we wanted to see as much as we could in one day. We had several tour guides and all were very... More

The cute little yellow train cars were recommended in the AAA tour guide so we tried them. First, the price is a bit high….something like $64 for the two of us. Second, our driver/guide (Bryan) was very knowledgeable and friendly…however, he spoke about 100 words per second and drove like it was his last shift before vacation. You may wish... More

It was a good way to get from Key West Express dock to our hotel on Truman since we did not want to rent a vehicle. And it allowed us to see what to expect on the island since it was our first visit. We should have taken the second day but where having too much fun.

I've read some comments about bumpy rides and 5-6 stops (there are only 3). Yes, it is bumpy but you must know this going in just from walking around and seeing the streets being uneven. Anyway, it was a great way to see the town and jot down notes about the locations that were being pointed out and return by... More

tour coverage was ok, got some nice history and sights, but the ride was jarring and painful to both myself and the guy 2 seats behind us. We could hear him complain to his wife about the back pain and I know I was kind of crouching in my seat to use my legs as shock absorbers. My guess is... More

Unfortunately the streets of Old Town Key West are quite uneven which can make our ride bumpy in places. we do have a 100% money back guarantee on all of our tours and attractions which you can access from the customer...

First the good things: the tour lasts about an hour and a half, mostly spent driving you around Old Town zigzagging through the various streets. Beats walking around for that long, especially when it's hot. Now, the rest: the tour makes about 5-6 stops, all of them at Conch Tour-owned gift stores and snack bars. They do not drop you... More

The second day of our trip, we took the train for a ride in the historic centre of the island. Both of our drivers were very nice and we felt like they enjoyed driving and teaching us. Thanks for bringing us closer to the Keys spirit!

If you've never been to Key West before, try this. You'll get a nice tour of the area, the tour guides are nice, and you'll know your way around by the time you're done. You can hop on and off at a few stops. We were there at the height of spring tourist season and they had plenty of trains.... More
