“excellent way to see Key West”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We recently had the pleasure of riding on the Conch Tour Train during one of our cruise stops. With our party of 7, it was sometimes difficult to find an excursion that all of us could do together. This tour turned out to be a great option for us. The train took us through the historic parts of Key West. The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. Tour lasted 90 minutes and cost $23. We were moving slow enough to take pictures and see the sights. Excellent way to see Key West! The train was convenient in that it picked us up from the cruise ship and returned us to it when the tour was done.

Some of the taller members of our party were uncomfortable sitting on the train for extended periods of time (leg space is limited). Tour guide does stop periodically to allow riders to stretch and move about if needed.

“Best Way to see Key West”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We booked the Conch Train on the high speed ferry from Marco Island and glad we did. We learned so much about the island and all the historical plus cool facts. There are three stops where you can get off and catch another shuttle including the Southern Most Point. Our driver was awesome both times and I highly recommend it.

“Very well done”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Compared to similar types of tours I've taken in other cities, this was top notch. The driver was friendly, funny, informative, and extremely knowledgeable of all the sites along the tour. If you are interested in the history, geography, and demographics of Key West, this is definitely something you'll want to consider. It was also very easy to jump on and off trains at certain stops. Since they have multiple trains running at one time, you're able to get off at any stop, walk around and see some sites for yourself, and get back on the next train if you choose to do so. This also allows you to easily use the restroom if needed or grab a bite to eat and drink. Overall, the Conch Tour Train was a great experience and honestly one of my favorite activities while visiting Key West.

“Fun Way to See it All”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The Conch Tour Train was so easy to access and even brought us back to our hotel. Great guide both coming and going with lots of information and lots of good laughs as well. Very personable staff. Good tips about where to go ( to eat), what to eat (conch fritters at the Mallory Square kiosk) and what to see in our own time (sunset and the cat man at Mallory Square). Even has the next day on the same ticket which unfortunately we could not use but what a deal! Highly recommend it!!!
