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.

Got off our cruise ship and the tour guide was waiting for us. Walked a couple of blocks to the bike shop and got our bikes, helmets and a bottle of water. Bikes were outfitted with a large bike basket to put your stuff in. Our tour guide (Leigh Stoner) was nice and informative. We set out to hit some... More

Wonderful tour of Key West, saw highlights, and even the beach. Off the cruise boat for only a day, wanted an overview. Was great. Leigh Stoner was our guide, he was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Pie was good at the end of the tour. BIke was in good condition and they gave us a bottle of water.

Did the tour as a stop with Norwegian on Feb. 22. First: the cost with the cruise line was the same as booking on our own with Key Lime - so was nice to see there's no mark up. We got fitted promptly once we were transported to the shop and was greeted by Sara, our tour guide. She's young,... More

Thanks for the great review! I agree that our tour is the best way to see Key West, especially if you're only here for a few hours on a cruise. Sara is a lot of fun, and she loves taking guests around our little slice of paradise. I'll make sure she sees your review! Thanks again for taking the time... More

Bought a tour being on the Royal Caribbean cruise. Our guide Leigh was great. Knowledgeable, funny. Really enjoyed it. Came through town sites on bikes, it was a pretty easy ride. May need a little experience to ride in the city with traffic. At the end enjoyed key lime piece of cake.

This tour is the perfect way to begin a stay in Key West. The tour company is organized and the bicycles were newer and in good condition. Our guide, Sara Carballo, knew old town Key West well, and in addition of pointing out the highlights and providing historical background, gave us sight seeing and eating recommendations. Sara was fun to... More

This is a great way to see the island. Sara did a great job explaining the sites and the slice of pie at the end was great. I only wish she would have said good bye, as we didn't get a chance to give her a tip! I would definitely recommend this tour.

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you had a great time on your trip, and sorry that Sara took off before she got tipped (but not as sorry as she will be when she reads this!).

We had a great time biking around the island. Our guide was knowledgable but kept a pretty quick pace which kept things interesting. Our whole family biked, with an 11 and 13 year old the traffic made me nervous but they did fine. Would totally recommend to a friend!

We selected this tour from the excursions available through our Royal Caribbean cruise. We were promptly met at the ship's dock at our appointed excursion start time, briefed up on how the tour would lay out, and headed by foot for their bike shop. After selecting a very well maintained "lime green" bike and fitting up a bike helmet (with... More

We came over from the Casa Marina on our bikes and were able to have an intimate tour with our guide. She was high energy/enthusiastic about her city and took her time. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend to others. The slice of Key Lime pie at the end was an added bonus. Thank you!

Thanks so much for the great review, but I wish you would have named your guide! It was either Sarah, Sara, or Leah, and all 3 are probably going to tell me it was them! ;-) I'm happy you enjoyed the tour, and it's obvious we love giving it! Thanks again for taking the time to write! More
