Great way to see the sites and get your bearing for what is where. Hits all the highlights. It is a little pricey. But these types of tours are always a great way to start a visit.

Take the trolley instead
Oct 2021
If you like bumpy then this might be for you - if not, try the trolley instead. The train which is comprised of small two wheeled wagons connected to each other left a lot to be desired for us senior riders. Even the younger folk were being bumped about we could see as they rocked to and fro in front of us. The roads aren't in the best state to begin with, add this "train" to it with less than desirable support and you will surely feel Key West roads. It would have been enjoyable had it not been so down right uncomfortable. We sat in the last car, but I don't think that made much difference. Thankfully it was over in just over an hour. Wish we had taken the trolley instead. Next time I'll pay attention to the negative reviews!

great trip
Sep 2021
Went with Kenny on 9-28-21. WOW Wow Wow---as he is also a native Floridian we got along very well---he is very knowledgeable & very professional. If you are in Key West, you have to take this trip (if you're lucky you'll catch a ride with Kenny). Worth every penny. Key West is only 5.5 hr drive for us so we will see Kenny & ride the train again soon. What a blast. Thanx again,

This was a wonderful way to get the layout of Key West. All the major highlights were pointed out with the opportunity to get on and off if you wanted to make a more thorough visit. I don’t remember our driver’s names, but one captured your attention with the history and lore while the other was monotone in his presentation. All in all, we enjoyed the experience.

Decent history of the island
Aug 2021
We took this tour because I wanted to learn more about the history of Key West. There was a lot to see on the 90 minute tour, but our driver/guide was so difficult to understand. We moved cars at one point, thinking our speaker wasn't working; it honestly didn't get much better. After stopping at the Sails to Rails Museum (which was cooler than I expected), we hopped on a different car to finish the trek; this drive was much more engaging and easy to understand.

Worth the price!
Tom was very informative giving us a quick history of Key West and showing us the landmarks. We were not able to get off at the stops because we caught the last train but it was still worth it.

Find a different tour company!
It was a nice way to get an overview of the city. Buy tickets online. Significantly more expensive in person. That is bad business practice in my opinion. Secondly, we had a rude run in with the driver Denver Dave. When I asked him do I purchase tickets directly from him, he announced to all the passengers “ I get asked that question several times a day…every day. “ I was so embarrassed. I can’t recommend this tour

Drivers Need to Realize Their Audience
We were very excited to go on the KW Conch train tour. We started out with driver Tom. Pleasant narration but we exited at the 1st stop to go to the Heminway house before it got busy. Recommended by Tom and man was he right. It got packed later in the day. We then had driver Denver Dan, a surly, rather rude driver. While he knew his script he was VERY sarcastic. Every time he encountered a tourist on the street doing something he didn't like he commented, thru the headset for all to hear. On this particular day he yelled rudely at an older man on a bike that he was riding on the wrong side of the street as we were rounding the corner. He then either clipped the man on the bike or the man clipped the train. Either way, the wife of the man began yelling, you hit my husband on the bike. Dan did stop but it took him a moment to gather himself before checking on the man. After a few moments he resumed driving us but it sure did take away from the fun of our ride. And.....Dan continued his rude comments via the headset at all tourists. Now, I will agree, the people did walk when they were not suppose to or turn at a stop sign when it was not their turn but his constant comments just got irritating. All 4 of us were "over" Dan but the end of our trip.
