Upon arriving at the bike shop, you'll be fitted with your bicycle and begin your approximately three-hour pedal through town. You will see the highlights of Key West, of which there are many. Pass Simonton Street Beach, the Green Parrot Bar, Key West Cemetery, Higgs Beach and the Southernmost Point of the United States, just 90 miles north of Cuba. Of particular note is the Customs House, which presides over historic Mallory Square. Dating to 1891, the faithfully restored, four-story architectural gem was originally home to the island's customs office, postal service and district courts. "Old 91" is today a national landmark and headquarters of the Key West Art & Historical Society. Another slice of local history unfolds as you approach the Presidential Gates of the Harry S. Truman Little White House. Built in 1890 as the first officer's quarters on the submarine base naval station, the abode served as Harry S. Truman's base of presidential operations during his 11 visits to Key West. Of course, Key West also is known as the home of Ernest Hemingway. During your bike ride, you will see the residence located at 907 Whitehead Street, across from the Key West lighthouse, where the famed writer lived from 1931 to 1939. One of Hemingway's legendary haunts was Sloppy Joe's Bar. Founded in 1933, the bar was located on Greene Street, just off Duval Street, during Hemingway's day. The bar has since moved to its current location on Duval Street, taking with it its storied connections to Hemingway, who suggested the name for the establishment. Other landmarks on today's roster include Dog Beach, Flagler Train Depot, Jimmy Buffet's first house, and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, the Duval Street watering hole that embodies the laid-back lyrics of the beloved singer/songwriter. After returning to the bike shop you will finish with a slice of Key Lime pie, a refreshing must-taste here in Key West.

Awesome tour! We can't say enough good things about Leah. Extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and very proud of her city. Thank you Leah for the incredible tour and history lesson. Can't tell you how many people we've already shared your stories with since our return home.

Thanks for the great review! While it's great taking the tour with any of my guides or myself, Leah is the only "Conch" (native Key Wester) that works for me so she is able to bring a unique spin to her tours. Just don't share too many of the stories with your friends, I want them to take the tour... More

The girls part of our wedding weekend was a morning touring Key West by bicycle and it was so much fun even though there was a bit of exercise thrown in which helped offset the DELICIOUS Key Lime Pie at the end.

I'm so glad you all had a great time! One of the best parts of our job is that when we get guests who are staying here on the island and don't have a pressing agenda we can modify the tour to what they want. We don't usually hang out with our guests for 15 hours, but it does happen... More

Being in Key West for our destination wedding I was racking my brain on an activity for a ladies day out while the guys went on a fishing charter.

A good mix of recreation and education. Great for first timers to key west. Not great for beginner bike riders. The traffic is a little intimidating and Could be dangerous if you are not at least comfortable riding a bicycle.

Thanks for the 5 star review, and thanks for pointing out that you need to be comfortable on a bike. Key West is a small town, and when they laid out the streets in 1821 they were designed for horse and buggy, and not 3 million visitors a year. As long as you're comfortable on a bike you'll be fine,... More

We got lucky and we're the only people on our tour so it was basically a private tour with Sara. She was so much fun, incredibly entertaining, and willing to take us wherever we wanted.
