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.

I checked out Key Lime bike tours on Trip Advisor as a way to see the town, so my husband & I decided to heed the other reviewers advice. Leigh was our guide & proved to be totally entertaining & accommodating, while still teaching us the 'ins & outs' & the 'do's & don'ts' of Key West. A great way... More

Fun, informative and great key lime pie. Tour about 5 miles long at an easy pace. Took in all the main sites and loved the lime green bikes. Great way to find your way around.

We took the Key Lime Bike Tour on our first morning in Key West. Ginny, our guide, took us all over the old part of the island, which helped us to orient ourselves to all the sights we wanted to see during our stay. She also gave us the kind of background knowledge and information that made our later sightseeing... More

We had a great tour this afternoon with Leigh. He gave us a good overview of the town, including suggestions for places to check out on our own afterwards.

Thanks for the review, and thanks for mentioning that the pie has a gluten free option.

We came to Key West on a Disney cruise, and had signed up for a snorkeling excursion. As we were leaving the ship, we were informed that high winds had cancelled all small watercraft excursions including our snorkeling trip.
