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 Conch Tour Train was a lot of fun...a nice hour and a half or so of just getting a good tour of Key West. Our guide, Doc, was excellent - giving lots of cool info and insight into the sites around Key West. It was just the right length for a tour, and Doc didn't talk too much or didn't talk too little. We had a great time and would say this is a great attraction for the Key West visitor.

We were in Key West in August 2010 and enjoyed very much the Conch Tour Train tour. It was a comfortable ride and the guide's information about the places we were passing was interesting and easy to hear. It was very hot that day but the train went fast enough to make a little breeze so it was comfortable.

I'm a local and I learn something new about my island every time I ride the train with friends or family. Friendly, knowledgeable, personable drivers.

This will orient you to where everything is around Key West, and the driver / tour guide (ours was Peggy) is really funny and factual. You will get quite a kick out of it and come away with a better idea of what you want to see and where you can find it. Worth the money for a 2 hour tour.

The Conch Tour Train has been around for a long time and still is a staple in Key West. It is a relaxing way to get an overview of the city. Key West has so much history and so many stories about so many colorful people, the "train" is a fun way to learn some of the lore. The old Victorian homes are charming, colorful and a testament to the skills of the builders. The Conch train is a multi car open-air trolley that is covered but you do get sun. The "conductor" is a driver that points out all the interesting homes and landmarks, peppering his commentary with stories and fun anecdotes. You can ask questions at any time and you will get an immediate answer. The "conductors" are very knowledgeable and are quite entertaining. Our "conductor" Harry was very funny and involved the passengers in his commentary. In 90 minutes you get a nice ride around a very unique part of our country. One point to keep in mind, there are lots of photo ops, the train doesn't stop, but it moves slowly allowing the opportunity to click photos.
