Couldn't wait for it to be over! Guide was so condescending and annoying! A very unhappy man, not someone we wanted to tell the interesting stories of Key West.

We did this excursion on a Disney cruise and it was so much fun. Our driver was super funny. The best way to see the whole island I think. We did the tour and then jumped back on the train to go to Hemmingway's home.

Upon arriving to Key West, we took this tour. It was fun and entertaining and very educational. Our tour guide could probably recite this on his sleep! Was highly impressed with him. We were taken to every corner of the pretty little town. Loved every minute of it!

The world famous conch train is a fun way to see the whole island of Key West. It's great for all ages, and not expensive for the 2 hour ride. They hire guides who are fun, funny, informative, and very interesting. You learn about the history of Key West, the pirates and shipwrecks, the famous people who lived here, and... More

Throughout the day, we rode with 3 different drivers/guides. The first one drove way too fast and talked too fast. The second one mumbled. The third one we could understand but still drove too fast. The tour would be much better if the drivers would kind of stop or at least slow down in front of the places they are... More

The conch tour train is a fun way to see the “Old Key West” portion of the island. It has 4 stops and runs until 4:30 pm. Two of the stops are in/ near Mallory Square. It’s a good way to get around and see the sights, but the sights are also definitely walkable if you want to save your... More

The staff are friendly and knowledgable. It's a bit pricey but we enjoyed our adventure. We saw a real overview of the town - areas we wouldn't ave had the time or energy to walk. Our driver was humerous and passionate about his town. There was a stop to visit rest rooms and buy refreshments. A relaxing way to see... More

Lots of potential but it wasn't all it could have been. The driver was a smart Alec (Frank) with dumb jokes. He spoke too fast and was unintelligible. Rude to my wife by not addressing her question about how to get to the restroom. If they want tourists to come & spend money then employees should go out of their... More
