“Everything was joke”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We expected to hear about ghost on the island of Key West. The majority of the trip the tour guide just made jokes. He made a mockery of the whole tour. It did have a few interesting stories if you could pay attention long enough through the puns and jokes. Plus the tour guide had not showered for a while.

“A joke of a tour”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Friends and I took this tour 10 years ago and had a great time hearing about the ghost folklore of Key West. This year I treated my cousins to the tour - what a mistake! We didn't visit as many sites; we stood in a parking lot to hear the cemetery story while cars pulled in and out around us. The guide regurgitated a campy script filled with jokes, jokes, and more jokes. His focus was on drinking, sex, and necrophilia. At the end, the guide trotted us up to the second floor of the Hard Rock Cafe to hear one more of his long winded stories and to encourage us to leave a generous tip. He then let us know where he would be drinking for the remainder of the evening.

“Walking Ghost Tour”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The walking Ghost Tour was the highlight of our recent trip! Our guide Ted was very informative concerning Key West history, and also very entertaining! A "must do" to get the real Key West vibe!

“Canceled without notice”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

I wish I could say that I enjoyed this tour. I made a reservation the day before but they canceled without notice. We found out after we walked over a mile from our hotel. I guess they cancel if they don't have 6 or more people attending. Make sure you call before you go. Also, verify the address as it was not up to date on the brochure that we had.

“This is fun and of you expect more, that's your issue”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

It's a fun history/ghost tour. You will not see ghosts. You will learn some TRUE crazy stuff about Key West. Not sure what people expect from a $15/person tour, but our guide was very well spoken, knowledgeable and engaging.
Please don't take this tour if you take life seriously. On that note don't visit KW if you take life that seriously.
Jay was our latest guide and he was great. Don't knock it til you try it folks...
