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.

When we cruise, we always book our own excursions. I'm so glad I found KLBT for our time in Key West. We arrived on the Carnival Dream on July 21st and found our way to their location--an easy 10-minute walk. Leah was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. As a "salt-water conch" (native of Key West), she was... More

We had a great time on this tour, and Chris is a very engaging story teller. Having never been to key west, this was a fun way to learn about the city.

Thanks Leah, for our recent tour. We had a blast. The stories and history is very entertaining, and the view amazing. Me and my family enjoyed it so much. The key lime pie at the end is delicious. I highly recommend this tour. Thanks :) I love Key West.

Chris was accommodating, he was willing to adjust the tour time, in order to better meet another couples schedule. Very knowledgeable, and it was obvious that he's well versed in the history of key west. 3 hours went by fairly quickly, and gives you a better idea of things to see.

Leah was an outstanding bike leader and she is a native of Key West! We felt so lucky to meet her, hear her story and share in her wealth of Key West history. We took our 15 yr. old granddaughter and the tour was just Leah and the three of us. We felt we left with a new BFF! We... More

Our guide was Leah, a local girl, proud of and knowledgable about Key West. Others had canceled out, leaving only two of us on the tour. As with any good guide, Leah took the time to explain each stop and its history. But, her awesome personality made it seem as if a fun friend were showing us her home. Leah... More

Sara was our tour guide and she was awesome! Tour was informative and a lot of fun. We did this tour on our first day and we got a glimpse of everything Key West has to offer. A lot of stops for only a few hours. Nice bikes in good working order also great people. Would recommend.
