“Captain Heather is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We toured key west on this trolley and learned a lot from captain heather. Highly recommend this tour, 10 stops, hop on hop off, you can see everything you want. Great job. The entire tour is about 90 minutes if you don't get off, so there is plenty of time to get off and see stuff and then get back on the next bus about every 20 minutes. The ticket is for 24 hours so if you get on mid day you still have the next morning to tour.

“Great Way to Start a Key West Vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We arrived late on a Sunday evening and didn't have a chance to look around Key West before the next day. We found a coupon in a tour book we were given at check in and decided to start our week long stay with City View. So glad we did!! What a great way to get an overview of Key West! The tour takes you to eight stops around the island and you can hop on hop off (HOHO) all day! The stops are: Clinton Square and Harborwalk, La Concha Hotel (Mile marker 0 and Margaritaville), Florida Keys Echo Discovery Center (Very cool place!!! And USCG Ingham), Higgs Beach, Butterfly Conservatory (Southern Most Point), Ernest Hemingway House Museum, Key West Bight, Conch Republic Seafood Company (Yes! J. b's recording studio is around here somewhere but I'm keeping that secret for myself!) If you buy your ticket later in the day, we were also told that it would still be good for the following day. You can catch the bus at any one of the stops to begin or end you tour (once around is about an hour... But don't just go once!) HOHO and get a great perspective from such funny and colorful folks as Larry, Dave and Matt!!! They were great!!!! They get the riders involved and even some folks on the streets! They are funny and really love their piece of paradise. It's nice to have some local hangouts pointed out quietly, too.... If you ask. They keep the less tourist areas sacred.... Just as it should be. We would not have loved our stay in Key West as much as we did if it hadn't been for Matt's wonderful knowledge and quiet recommendations for great food, Entertainment, local brews and tours he had heard fantastic things about! He made our trip for us!!

Don't hesitate! Take the City View silver trolley the minute you see it!!!

“CityView Trolley with *Heather* driving - The Best Way to see Key West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

A friend and I took the CityView Trolley Tour of Key West yesterday, Dec 9th, and had an excellent time! Our driver, Heather, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, VERY funny and literally knew each person at every street corner! She would stop at a stopsign and have someone from inside a store/restaurant or even the street vendors/artists yelling out "Hey Heather!". A few times we heard "You folks riding be sure and tip her, she owes me 5 bucks!" - it made for a funny and more personal guided tour that felt like you get a local's view of the city while seeing the attractions and getting the history behind every landmark in Old Town. She even went through things like industry and architecture of each era in Key West since the 1800s, all while driving accident-free! Must be a tough job to remember all that information AND drive at the same time while telling jokes. I have taken other tours around Key West in previous visits and was way more entertained by Heather on CityView Tours on this trip.

A drivier with a winning personality and a very informative, fun way to see Key West in less than an hour (plus 6 or 7 stops around the island to "hop on/hop off") make for a convenient way to get around. Depending on the stop and what was nearby, Heather also has coupons for food/drinks. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to explore Key West!

“Loved the Hop-on, Hop-off Option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Great way to see the sights the city has to offer, and then determine where to actually get off. We did the first day by staying on the trolley the whole time, but did the 2nd day hopping on and off. Nice to buy 1 day get the second day free. The drivers/guides were quite knowledgeable, friendly, and humorous.
