We used our tickets to hop on and off the train. The commentary was informative and amusing. The ride was a little bumpy at times but this was part of the experience. Saw bits of Key West we would otherwise have missed

I was hesitant at first, but went with the wife. Glad I did. The driver, Ritchie, was extremely knowledgeable about Key West and its history. Saw areas of the city you would normally never go to. I highly recommend this tour. It takes about an hour and 45 minutes if you don't get off at the four stops.

This was my fourth ride on the world famous Conch Train and it never gets old. I like to take KW newbies on this tour at the beginning of the trip because it's such a good overview of the Rock and it's history. I love looking at all the architecture and hearing the stories. You can use your ticket for... More

Although the train brings you around most of Key West, I thought it was kind of boring (coming from a 20 year old). The conductors were very knowledgeable about the history. I would recommend renting a scooter or electric car to navigate the area. The train does not allow you to get off anywhere to take pictures, which is kind... More

The tour provided a great overview of Key West - history, legend, fun facts. It is a great way to identify places you may want to visit and learn more about.

A guide narrates points of interest for an hours ride thru Key West. You can get off any of the four stops and then get back on and continue riding. It was a bit pricey for what you get but the pass is good for two days.

This was a great way to see everything there is to see in Key West. Very informative, very relaxing. It is not a "hop-on, hop-off", but there are several stops, and because the town is so small, it's perfect.

The ride is fun and gives you a lot of information about the island! It was available in spanish and english so it was great because I did not need to translate for my parents (they don't speak english). It takes you to the main attractions and points of interest in an hour and a half, for only 20 usd... More

I loved riding by the lovely houses and seeing them…something that's harder when you are driving. The driver knew a lot about the various houses and who built them. There are four stops on the route, and you can get off and on as many times as you wish.
