Owner description: See the best of Key West on the tour that has been entertaining visitors since 1958. Our expert 'engineers' and friendly staff have delighted guests with the legends and tales of Ernest Hemingway, and Tennessee Williams and the stories of the pirates, Indians, wreckers and artists who called this island home. 90 minutes and over 100 points of interest. No Key West vacation is complete without the world famous Conch Tour Train.

This was one of those "touristy" things that you see. For the most part, I thought it gave you a very good overall history and lay of the land of KW. We purchased the 2 day, which didn't work out for us. Others in our party said they used it a 2nd day and had another driver that pointed out different, unique facts.
They do stop at mostly their "touristy" little shops. It's NOT a train to get on and off at different attractions.

Anyone who is interested in the history and layout of the island should take this tour -- a very informative trip around the town. Some parts are a little "touristy" -- but that is more of a fun observation, not a complaint. If you are on the island for a short time, this is a good thing to do, still leaving you time for other activities.

After walking around Key West for about an hour,we were tired and settled on taking this tour,30 bucks per person(non senior)Kenny was our tour guide and he provided a colourul disciption of all you were seeing,lots of local historical info and photo opportunities,the only complaint i have with this,was that the ticket vendor did not explain clearly where we were to be for pickup.We thought this was a good tour and worth the money.

What a joke! Over priced and too many tickets sold. Very difficult to re-board the train if passengers got off the train to eat or shop. Seating was extremely cramped even for a smaller passenger. There are far better tours in Key West.

DON'T SAY YOU WERE NOT WARNED!
