Which tour for first timers?

I asked this before but I can't find the darn thing. I am coming with three other gals. None of them have been there before so I thought the first day we could take a tour. Which one do you think would be the best.

Thanks

I get the feeling you mean on the land. If so, why not one of the pub crawls, just to get oriented.

the Conch Train!

it takes you through all of Old Town and you'll go past almost everything. Take lots of photos of the things you think you might want to revisit later.

It gives you a great feel for the layout of the land.

I like the trolley tours. Hop on and off at different stops. Buy your ticket and it's good for 2 consecutive days.

I'd go with the Trolley Tour as you can get on/off all day

I would also go with the Trolley Tour rather than the Conch Train since you can get on/off all day long.

If you have the time I don't see you going wrong with both the Conch Train and the Trolley Tour.

Or try something a little different. We tried a bicycle tour at www.keylimebiketours.com. It was great, very informative and overall a lot of fun riding around. They provide the bikes, helmets if you want, and a great tour of points of interest in KW.

I'd go with City View Trolley Tour. Hop on and off, and travel around Old Town. City View and HTA both have trolley tours. Check their websites to see which one has stops that you are more interested in.
