Great way to see & learn about Key West. You can hop on and off as you like if you want to spend more time in one area, then continue with the tour. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the sites, a definite must do while in Key West.

Enjoyed a wonderful 90 minutes on the Conch Tour. It's a beautiful place and you just won't see it's beauty any other way. The guide Ben was absolutely magnificent, a real credit to our enjoyment of the whole Keys experience.

I have always found these types of tours good to give me the lay of the land when we travel. I found the tour did a great job covering the points of interest around Key West. I personally didn't get off the train and just did the complete route at one time. It did actually go through parts of town... More

This was a great way to see the various sites around the Key. I wish I had purchased a ticket earlier because it was good for two days and it came with coupons for quite a few of the other attractions. It doesn't have many stops where you can get off/on but enough to get around. It's also a good... More

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.
