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.

The tour is divided in two parts, they have a short break so you can go into a store and go to the toilet and buy water/drinks. I felt that the tour was too long and should have ended when the break was. Also the tour was too expensive.

The first part of the tour was informative. The guide was however trying too hard to be funny and that did not work at all.

A few small things to fix such as the length and the script for the guide and then the tour would be excellent.

We were a group of 4 and made the decision to try the Conch Tour Train. Be aware that for 4 adults you'll be paying a little over $120 for the tour.

The driver is entertaining as your getting bounced around in your seat over the rough roads in Key West. My wife became a little "car sick" from all the bouncing. The first 50 minutes you need to stay on the train as it takes you through the city streets. You get to see all the main attractions, but you're driving past them. There is a 2nd part of the tour after the train stops for several minutes to allow a restroom break. On this 2nd part of the tour, you can get off at stop C to tour the area on your own.

For us, this seemed to be very expensive for what we got. We would have rather rented of of those 4 passenger vehicles at ~$90 for 4 hours, and done a self guided tour.

A friend recomended taking this train ride through Key West and are happy that we did! We were able to scope out the areas we wanted to go back to see. Even won the Trivia contest given by our driver! Definitely would recommend!
