Lloyd's Tropical Bike Tour
Ranked #50 of 297 Tours in Key West
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Key West has tons of history and interesting facts, but my group was stunned by how little information Lloyd's Bike Tour told us.

He mostly took us to fruit trees so we could have a bite of the fruit (some of which got picked up off the street). Mango, Spanish lime, fig, and coconut.

Lloyd took us to a location, and we'd stop, expecting to hear some interesting information, but instead he'd go into a rant against whatever - jet skis, overdevelopment, current events.

He also has this snarky sense of humor that was mildly offensive at times.

My advice is that you pick up a copy of "Sharon Well's Walking and Biking Guide to Historic Key West" (Google it; many tourist places carry it for FREE!), then rent your own bike for a day. You'll learn much more and save money and time.

If it's bad weather, or some in your group would rather not bike, try the City View Trolley. At $19 it was a third less expensive that the other trolley or Lloyd, runs frequently, gives lots of good info, and you can get on and off all day long.

Lloyd was just a much fun and a little more cooky than expected! There were three women in my group and we each enjoyed the tour immensely. Lloyd has a true Key West personality and he showed us a locals way of looking at the island. We loved the fresh mango, coconut with lime, and avocado he fed us along the tour and we know we saw things in Key West no one else on our cruise ship got to experience. (the real southernmost point of the US)
great job Lloyd! We will be back to visit you for sure!

I am a local key west resident who enjoys cooking, has businesses and write cook books on sourcing local foods. Lloyd is my go to guy for a tour of what's local and ready to eat. It's fun, quirky and educational for residents and tourists alike. Lloyd experence and passion for all the trees and local goodies will inspire you to understand where you live even more and get in tune what real local food is. Take the kids, go by yourself there is no other way to learn more about "all" of keywest with a sense of humor thrown in on a bike!

Went with a boy scout troop. Lloyd took us through the neighborhoods of Key West, enjoying local tropical fruit right off the trees and visited with a cool collection of characters (parrot rescue, Lloyd's brother, a bird rehab). Totally offbeat and quirky, Lloyd was fun to hang with. Plus the breeze generated by the easy ride on the bikes made for a cool afternoon despite humid, high 80 degree heat.

Lloyd's bike tour was a great time. It is a very safe, easy, and fun ride. Lloyd took us through beautiful neighborhoods. He shared various local fruits obtained along the way from his friends and family's fruit trees. We stopped at the parrot rescue center, animal sanctuary and Shel Silverstein's house. If you are looking for a historical tour of Key West, this is not the tour for you. If you are interested in enjoying the local flavor of Key West, you will not be disappointed. So glad we went!!!
