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.

“Informative Ride and Transportation”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Learn about the history of the city narrated by knowledgable, fun guides. Yes, some have said this may be a corny, touristy thing to do. However, you will learn a lot of neat things about the city and see the historical architecture.

AND after you take the tour, you can use the train for transportation for the day you purchase the ticket and the next day. We used this a couple to times so we didn't have to park the rental. You have to hear the driver talk again, but each driver puts a different spin on things.

The drivers are friendly and funny. We were even given fans on a hot, humid day at one of the train stops.

“Nice way to get aquainted with Key West”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

First thing we did when we arrived, got our bearing on the island and a bit of interesting history as well. You get a free 2nd day with your purchase and can use it as a trolley due to its stops along the way, we did not do this though, we just did the 90 minute tour. As a first timer to Key West a good idea, if we return I dont think we'll do that again though. If it is your first time there, I recommend it.

“Historic tour”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

90 minutes of Key West History - very bumpy ride though. I think once at the beginning of your trip to see the lay out of Key West and that is enough for me. Your tickets are good for two days if you want to see it again. Also can buy discounted tickets with this for other attractions.

“Entertaining and Enjoyable”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It was so much fun and we got to see so much more than we would have seen on our own. Our driver, Kenny, was a native "Conch" and he brought the history of old Key West to life with his personal stories and obvious love and pride of his hometown. The best value on the island.

“Get your ticket to ride!!!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

I've been to key west 7 times , my boyfriend Tim's first time we rode the conch train in the rain our captain was Bruce he made this trip extra informative and fun even though I had visited key west before I learned about many things I didn't know. Get your ticket to ride young or growing older but not up you'll love it.
