Owner description: 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.

Yes, a great way to start your visit and be sure do book with Keylime Bike Tours - why? Sarah, our tour guide is why!

If you are in a cruise food coma and your credit card is getting worn out, do this inexpensive tour of Key West on a bike. Leigh was knowledgeable and humorous.

This tour was booked via a cruise, and our group had only 9 people, so it was not crowded. Sarah was a great tour guide, and very knowledgeable about the local area. She easily navigated the streets, and when we stopped to see specific sites, gave us suggestions for viewing and pictures. We covered a great deal of the Key... More

This is a perfect way to see and learn about Key West. The bikes are comfortable, easy to maneuver and can simply be adjusted to fit any rider. Our guide (Christopher) was relaxed and was obviously knowledgeable about the area. So many tour guides are robotic. It was refreshing to have someone who could actually talk about something off the... More

We booked with Key Lime Bike Tours because of all the great previous reviews and we were not disappointed. It was a lot of fun. If you are doing the tour with a cruise ship they will guide you to the building. If you are independent you may have to wait outside until the group from the cruise ship arrives.... More
