Our expert 'engineers' and friendly staff have delighted guests with the legends and tales of Ernest Hemingway, and Tennessee Williams and the stories of the pirates, Indians, wreckers and artists who called this island home. 90 minutes and over 100 points of interest. No Key West vacation is complete without the world famous Conch Tour Train.

“Standard tourist tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The tour was well done and professional. It wasn't anything overly exciting, but it was a good way to pass some time and see areas of Key West that you aren't going to see on foot. Our "conductor" (tour guide) was knowledgeable about the island. They were running a promo that you could ride free the next day, which was nice to grab a quick ride down Duval the next day.

“Great way to see the island... hop off and on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

What a great way to learn a little bit about the island and get the lay of the land. My friends and I were first-timers, and this tour was a great way for us to get to know the area. You can hop off and on this train for two days with your paid fare, just be sure to hang on to your little sticker. You'll learn a lot about the history of the island, the architecture and find other things you want to see and do.
Our engineer was (Sponge) Bob, and he was fantastic! Very personable and helpful! Be sure to tip him well... he (or the other drivers) make the ride fun!

“Great way to get a town overview”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Our guide Ben gave us a detailed and informative tour of the town. You cover most of the old town and go down some pretty narrow streets for such a long vehicle. There's a lot of interesting information about housing styles that make walking around the streets, later, more interesting - you know what to look out for. There's a lot of history -Key West has has some " interesting " characters in its past.
We were only in town for a day and it gave us a good overview and we covered a lot of ground.
We sat at the front of the train which was great it gave us a clear view of everything so I would recommend sitting there, because most of the streets are shady you aren't in the full sun very much.

“Great Open-Air Tour of Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great open-air tour of Key West. 90 minutes of touring all around the island. Saw lots of stuff. Only passed a couple things more than once. Only 4 stops along the way.
