Very interesting tour. Our tour guide had lots of information about everything. Most enjoyable. You can get off at certain stops and get back on for different stops.

I have done this several times and always learn something new. The guides are witty and scripted and seem to flow seamlessly between the two. Bring water!

The tour provided an excellent insight into the landmarks and history of Key West. Our tour guide Joe was excellent and he pointed out many interesting facts that put together a very interesting picture of the history of Key west. Having previously only walked round key west, we missed out many of the interesting sights that only a local would... More

I've been on this years ago and wanted to do it again when we visited Key West. They have packages available for the train and several museums. We opted for the train, aquarium and the ship wreck museum. The train was available both days and we used it for much of the transit instead of walking. Depot are located throughout... More

We did the train ride through Key West and it was a great idea. It took about 90 minutes to travel the full train route and you see and are told all about the highlights of the city. A very enjoyable way to find your way around.

We had checked out of out hotel and needed to kill time. We were beyond hungover, so eating and drinking were not on our agenda. We saw a train go by & said I want to be driven around feeling the cool breeze. So we found the ticket office, paid $60 total for both of us and away we went.... More

I think if the guide just put a cd playing the narrative, it would do the job because the way he was talking was like a radio (AM) playing, all same tone of voice, so was a little boring. A few sarcastic jokes were made but I only caught half of them. The accent was so strong, I am english... More

The staff does a good job at moderating the history while navigating the streets and pedestrians. It was very entertaining as our driver, Joe, made it a fun trip for all. We stayed on the train for the entire trip of 90 mins but Conch does allow to board and exit at different stations.

A great way to see some of the sights with a few stops to hop on and off at. Our ticket allowed us to ride 2 consecutive days. The first day was a better tour than the second purely down the the 'driver' of the train, who's personality was infectious as he told us of Key Wests colourful past

We had friends visiting from England and we took them to Key West for 3 nights. We had not done the Conch Train for a long time but all enjoyed the narrated ride and understood Key West a lot better after the ride. It is the best of all the narrated tours offered in Key West.
