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.

Had a really great time on the Conch Tour Train. Did not book via cruise but disembarked and saw the Train along with the Tour Bus. Was extremely happy with our tour captain. He knew the history of Key West very well and had some gimmicks on the train to make one laugh. Very knowledgeable and easy going. Would highly recommend. This was very reasonable and the value is high!!!!!!

We did not book on the ship but when we disembarked we saw the Conch Tour Train and were impressed with the representative and the fact that they offered the same discount we would have had booking onboard. We thought that the 90 minute ride was going to be a little long but that was not true at all. The time went by quickly. Our guide was terrific, articulate, mixing humor with an expert knowledge of the community and the narration was personalized, thorough, and never stopped. We did "hop-off" once only to explore a section of our choice and then it was easy to catch the next train when we were ready. The seats were comfortable, sound system was good. One of our party had a portable wheelchair which they easily placed behind the driver...no problem. Getting on and off was easy for her as well. We recommend this tour and you are sure to enjoy it as we did.

Although iconic and a must do, 90 minutes was too long and $30 was too much. Very informative, with hop on/off allowances-wish there was a shorter option.

At first we thought the train was hokey, but decided to take it one day as we were exhausted from walking in the heat. The tour lasts 90 minutes. We were surprised at how much history and interesting facts about Key West we learned. The train doesn't really slow down past points of interest, so listen and watch if you are really want to see. After an hour, the train stops at different places where you can get off and walk around that area for as long as you wish and catch the next train back. They trains pick up every 15 minutes. So it is a good way to get to places that are a little far for walking if you don't want to walk. We also were given a card with our ticket that allowed for riding the train all day the following day. This is an excellent way to see Key West.

Like that you can hop on and off and see the sights. Informative and you get a 2 day pass when you buy the ticket. Good history of the Keys and the drivers are knowledgeable.
