“Good Way (Tour) To Start Off Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was a good way for us to get a quick view of the older Key West and learn some things about the area and places to go back and visit on foot. We were advised (locally) that the "Train" tour was better than the "Trolley" tour (not sure why as both are motor driven and not on/off types of transportation). Lasts about 90 minutes and goes by quick as pace is same as rest of traffic - so not a lot of time to view things as riding by as train does not stop at points of interest.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

You can get the smae souvenirs elsewhere on Duval for the same price. If you are going on the tour then wait to buy your souvenirs elsewhere. However, they have the best selection of Christmas ornaments in Key West

“The best way to travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Our driver, Frank, was a great tour guide, providing humor and information. The train was the best way to get an overall view of Key West.
