I have lived in Key West for a while now, but I didn't take a tour until my mother came to visit. Boy how I wished I had taken previously vacationing friends on this tour! I have a bad knee, so I was really worried about the back - pedal breaks of the bikes, plus the length of the tour.... More

Thanks so much for the great review! I've said it many times, one of my favorite groups is when it's a local along with some visiting friends and family. Even if you've lived here your whole life I'm sure I can give you some nuggets of information that you never knew. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and I hope... More

The owner was amicable and knowledgeable. It rained so the tour went a bit long and was soggy, but that is weather in the tropics. The equipment was in good condition, and the pie was authentic and excellent. I would recommend this tour!

Thanks for the great review! I'm sorry about the rain, but there is nothing we can do about it here in the tropics. It actually makes it a bit of an adventure those few times that we have to pedal in the rain. And of course a nice slice of key lime pie at the end always makes up for... More

This was our first visit to Key West and we were extremely pleased with the Key Lime Bike Tour. We were interested in the history of Key West and a little bit of exercise. Our guide, Christopher, really captured the essence of the island and it's interesting and colorful history. Not only did he tell great stories, he stopped to... More

Thanks for the great review! I always wonder how many people take me up on my suggestion to read Hemingway's "To Have and Have Not". I think it's fascinating to read what Key West was like in 1935 as seen through the eyes of one of the greatest writers of all time. I'm happy that you enjoyed my tales also!... More

This was my first trip to Key West. Taking the Key Lime Bike Tour was a great way to learn about the history of the island, and become familiar with the well known landmarks and places of interest. Our guide Christopher was extremely knowledgeable. He explained the history of the island from when it was first settled to present day.... More

Thanks so much Dominick! I had a great time with you and your cousin Jimmy!

That way we can explain all of the great things to do, restaurants to visit, and most importantly the best... More

Although some stories were interesting, I guess we expected more of a bike tour pointing out highlights of key west. This is a very easy bike ride and mostly are stopped listening to long stories. We were hoping for more bike riding than we did. I would caution anyone bringing children that this could be quite boring for them listening... More

I'm sorry that the tour wasn't what you expected, but I don't know of any other way to do a history tour without stopping to tell the history. Our tour does go to all of the places that the train and trolley tours go, and we stop and talk about those places instead of just riding by at 20 MPH.... More

Went with my wife and kids (18,20, 23) and had a great time. SARA our tour guide was so awesome and her enthusiasm for Key West was infectious. The ride is easy and we stopped frequently in shady spots so wasn't that difficult. You do ride on busy streets and with trucks stopped to unload it can be a little... More

Thanks for the great review! I agree that it's better to take our tour instead of the trolley or train tours because we do stop at all the hot spots and are able to give you more details. Sara's enthusiasm is truly infectious, and it's obvious that she loves what she does. Thanks again for taking the time to review... More

Thanks for the great review! I'll make sure Ginny sees it. She loves this island and loves to share it with all of our guests. I'm just wondering if I should charge you for giving my tour to your husband! ;-) Thanks for taking the time to write, and we hope to see you back in Key West soon! More
