This tour was great! It took us all around Key West and had four depots to stop at. You can get off at the depot, tour the area, then catch another train to the next stop when you are ready. They run every 15/20 minutes. It was 29$/person. Well worth it.

Finally took this tour with the kids on our latest visit to Key West. Should have done it before. Took us through the historic district as well as the touristy areas. We even were able to spot an out of the way Cuban sandwich shop tucked into a laundromat we went back to find for lunch the next two days!

This is quite a nice way to see the main sites of Key West so that you can decide what to go back and visit later. It is billed as a hop on hop off tour but most people seemed to stay on for the whole trip. There were three short stops during the tour but they were too short... More

This was a great tour filled with history, jokes and views of Key West. Our narrator/conductor spoke non stop keeping the interest going the entire trip.Very professional and friendly. We got to see areas we missed on our last visit and saw new restaurants to try later. There is a bathroom stop and opportunities to get off.

A really great way to experience and see Key West. We rode it around the first time which was about 45 minutes, then we hopped on and off the rest of the day. Our driver, Robert, was very informative and gave us great educational facts too during the ride. Highly recommend taking the tour to see the sites of Key... More

Conch Tour Train 501 Front Street Key West, FL 33040-6618 Where we parked was just across the street from one of their 4 stops so we decided to give them a try. We knew going in they had the fewest stops but decided since they concentrate on the ‘old Key West area only’ we should be OK. Their tour is... More

The tours is broken up into two (or three) different segments that covers the entire (small) island of Key West. Great historical backgrounds offered, especially if you have a talented driver/guide. For us, "BJ" provided a non-stop level of facts, and entertainment (I don't think he ever inhaled!)

Very fun and informative. My husband and I love local history and random facts so this appealed to our nerdy natures. Our conductor was Bob and he was so funny and really just a nice guy. We were tempted to keep riding it all day. He showed us everything from local monuments to different architecture on the original homes built... More
