“Fun little tour”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Had three different drivers and tour guides. Phil was awesome, Ed did a pretty good job, but Vaughn was horrible, We couldn't understand a word he was saying. Luckily we weren't on the train long with Vaughn or would have complained. Check your drivers names they are written on the front car. The tour was informative and if it rains they give you ponchos. Erica visited with us one morning while waiting for train to leave and she was very sweet. Would recommend this mode of transportation for you to get to know the island.

Bob was our driver. Great knowledge. Definitely a tour to do. Go around 1 x and then hop on hop off. Key west is small and you can walk it.

“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.
