“A MUST DO on your visit to Key West!!!!”
Reviewed April 4, 2010

On 11 Jan 2010, I came into Key West on the Carnival TRIUMPH, and one the things that I wanted to do was take the Conch Train tour. I am so glad I did! I have been in the tourist busness much of my professional life, as a tour guide for the Houston Astrodome for almost seven years, and as a hotel concierge, and as a tour guide for several of the old victorian mansions on Galveston Island with the Galveston Historical Foundation, I do hold tours to a highter standard than most of your visitors, and I have to tell you that your "engineer", Eduardo, was one the best guides that I have ever experienced. He was extremly knowledgable of your beautiful island and yet made the tour educational and fun! at the same time. You are very blessed to have such a guide in your company. I continued my cruise to the Bahamas, and I can tell you, honestly, that if I never go back to the Bahamas again, it will be too soon, but I have deceided that within a year, I hope to move to Key West, and with any luck, perhaps, I can join your team on the Conch Train. I don't know how many of your staff realize it, but you live on the most beautiful spot on earth! (I have been blessed to see a number of places, and, trust me when I tell you, you live in the most beautiful spot on earth!, you really do!) I can't wait to move to Key West and start my seven year " training period" to be what Eduardo called a "fresh water conch". Again, thank you for providing such a great attrraction to visitors, and be assured that I am recommending the Conch Train to everyone that I hear is planning a visit to your wonderful home. Sincerely, Edward Lloyd Thomas

“Not to be missed!!!”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

We were on a cruise and ported at Key West on March 16, 2010. When booking, I thought that Key West was an inappropriate stop for a Caribbean cruise but I was pleasantly surprised! Key West has become one of my favourite ports and I highly recommend the Conch Train tour. We did it first thing and it gave us a really good feel for the island. Vaughn, our engineer, was informative and entertaining! We made mental notes of things to visit at the conclusion of the tour and were conveniently dropped off in Mallory Square, the heart of Key West. Check it out - a tour not to be missed!

“Great Overview of Key West”
Reviewed March 18, 2010

We did the Conch Tour Train with Capt. Harry as our guide, and it was a great 90 minutes. He was funny, informative, told great stories, and we got a great overview of Key West. $29 per person well spent.
