1st time....long tour....lots of information on architecture....not worth the hefty price. Also, ride is rather bumpy.

We were staying with friends in Key West that had lived there for years and they suggested we take this tour. What a great recommendation! Our driver, Kenny, was an incredible delight! He was a true 'Conch' that had a great love for his hometown. He was so knowledgeable and was also able to throw in some personal stories that... More

We've been to Key West many times. Rode the Conch Train back near the beginning. Great way to get to see things you otherwise wouldn't. Everyone should do it once. We had a friend with us who was on their first trip to the island. So we took her on it. She loved it. I guess it depends on your... More

We found the tour on tripadvisor. The tour was first on our list for Key West, 8:30AM. We really enjoyed the tour. The guide/driver, Bob was very knowledgeable about the area and was entertaining as well. Not too many stops which was a plus for us.The stops were very good. Try the chocolate covered key lime pie!!! The train goes... More

Everything was fine when boarded and while driving down key west. There was a bit of rain but because I was in the middle I did not feel it as much. We got off and looked around and then when it was time to go back I noticed everyone had a poncho which was complimentary because all the seats were... More

This was my first visit to the island and the conch train provides a great tour experience. We saw the entire island and had the ability to get on and off the train as needed. Bob was our tour guide and he did an AWESOME job. Make sure Bob gives your tour :)

This wasn't a cheap tourist attraction, but we decided to pay it to see as much as we could as quickly as we could and we were told we would have 3 stops. First off it was very hard to hear the driver, not because the driver wasn't talking loud but the sound quality wasn't the best. He was VERY... More
