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.

This is a good way to get a quick overview tour of old Key West. The trains are open-air and not overly crowded, with each car having a speaker so the driver can be heard as information is given. Our first driver did a fair job of giving information of the sights and area we traveled. We did get off for a little while to walk and shop. The second driver (BJ, from Wisconsin) was fantastic, his delivery of information was great, and he was really funny. So enjoyable.
We did learn that one needs to be aware of the train they are getting on, some trains are transports for passengers being taken to one of the cruise ships, while others are the actual tour trains.
Well worth the cost of the excursion.

The Conch Tour Train was a nice way to learn so history and see the sights of the Key West area. We booked the tour through the cruise ship and it was a great way to see a lot of the area during our short port call; the drivers were very informative and it was a nice relaxing way to see the sights of Key West. We made note of the interesting points and hoped off, then back on again to continue with the tour. There were several other trolleys and hop on-off tours, but they all seemed to be going to the same places and pretty much the same information. There are two parts of the tours which last about 90 minutes to make the entire circuit. Knee room on the train seats is rather tight, so if you need extra room this might be a problem.

After taking the Key West Express from Fort Myers down to Key West, we decided to take the Conch Tour Train to get an overview of Key West and decide where we wanted to spend the rest of the afternoon. The driver did an excellent job of giving us a history of the town and pointing out interesting spots to visit. If you are a first time visitor this is an excellent way to get acquainted with Key West.

Drivers were very friendly and knowledgable. We learned a lot about the history, current events and attractions at KW. We also liked the hop on-hop off stops. Really enjoyed the 2 consecutive days of riding this train. We would ride it again and we do recommend it. Very glad we chose to ride this train.

The Conch Tour Train was a pleasant surprise. I usually don't care for structured tours, but this was a nice experience. The guide was very informative, humorous and made the tour worth the cost.
