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.

Sarah G. met us at the cruise ship dock, and then we made our way over to the bike shop. Once on our bikes, we meandered through the streets of Key West seeing the most important sights. She spent the time telling us local stories, key historic facts, and her own experiences. We had a great time, and couldn't have... More

This was a great way to see the major landmarks of Key West while in port for a day! We covered a lot of distance in a few short hours. Sarah was a wonderful guide. Remember to bring plenty of water as it was a rather warm ride in the south Florida sun! The pie at the end of the... More

Thanks for the great review! We do give everyone a 1/2 litre (17 ounce) bottle of water to start the tour, but in August and September here in the tropics that isn't always enough, so thanks for the tip! I'm glad you enjoyed the tour, but you forgot to mention that the pie is served inside an air conditioned building!... More

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.

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.

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.
