The Ernest Hemingway tour is a must for anyone visiting Key West! Whether you have read all of his books or none, it really doesn't matter. The history of his house and life unfold eloquently and in a fun manner by the tour guides. They make this tour what it is, in my opinion by bringing the homes history and Hemingway's history to life. And it is nice that you can manage the walking tour in under an hour, which leaves time to walk about the Hemingway grounds if you would like. Actual descendants of Hemingway's cats are on premises! It was a fun and informative tour that I feel is a must visiting Key West!

This attraction was very interesting and informative. The house has a lot of history to it. I couldn't believe the size of the cats. These cats have got it made. I didn't care for the small book store for Souvenir's. The garden was amazing at the number of cats that were running from place to place.

Loved our short, yet very informative, tour of the Little White House. So much history in such a small space.

As a native of New Jersey, you may know that at the Princeton University Firestone Library’s Department of Rare Books and Special.Collections are Carlos Baker's working papers and biographical files used in preparation of his biography Ernest Hemingway: A Life Story (1969). This was the fourth book on Hemingway written or edited by Baker (1909-1987), a Princeton professor and author. Also present are manuscripts for a novel and book of poetry by Baker, unrelated to his work on Hemingway.

As a New Yorker, you may know that Hemingway’s boat, the Pilar, was built by the Wheeler Shipyard in Brooklyn, New York. Hemingway also boarded many cruise liners in New York in his travels to Paris. Scribner’s Magazine in New York published many of Hemingway’s works. It is great that New York has a Hemingway connection too.
