We have been to KW several times, at least twice a year now and we have never rode the train. We always thought about it just never did. We got the package that also gave admission to the shipwreck museum and the aquarium. You can ride the train for two consecutive days and also go to the aquarium more than... More

You can hop on or off at 4 locations. The conch train runs every 30 minutes. The drivers are well versed in the local information. Most of it is interesting. If it rains you will get wet as there is no additional protection as in drop down side plastic covers. CON: you are riding a rigid two axle car frame... More

Enjoyed the ride. I just wish they would have stopped in front of select buildings so people could take pictures. Our guide was great.

My wife and I have been going to Key West for many years, but after taking the train last year we learned so much more we never knew, a definite worth while excursion while visiting!

This train trip gives you a great trip around Key West. The driver was very informative and informed. The only thing I waould change is to have more stops for pic opportunities such as Southernrnost point and Hemmingway's house etc. Great trip for a quick tour of Key West

Took this today. Felt it was overpriced and just ok. Would recommend looking at other options. Not sure what else is available.

It is a 90 minute tour of Key West by open air train. Worth the money for sure. Tour guide was very good. They know their stuff. Kids and adults will enjoy but no alcohol allowed. We were there for Lobsterfest and parts of Duval Street were closed to traffic. Loved it....good history.

Really worthwhile trip. BJ the guide was fantastic. Lots of funny stories and anecdotes. A nice way to see Key West without working up too much of a sweat. :)

We're locals who love taking the train. It revives the feeling of being tourists and seeing Key West for the first time. Plus we always learn something new (or that we've forgotten). The tour guides/conductors are well trained and personable. We've taken the trolley and the bus, but the Conch Train has that authentic Key West feel that you can't... More
