“Outstanding way to tour Key West”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We really loved our visit on the Conch Train in Key West. This was a great and relaxing way to visit Key West, plus get an overview of many attractions on the island as well as the history of many of them. You can hop on/hop off at several locations, continuing your tour on the next available train which come along about every 20 minutes or so. Your ticket is good all day for the Conch Train. Our drivers were always very knowledgeable and courteous. We would definitely recommend this tour. Be sure to purchase your tickets online for additional savings. The tickets are good any day, doesn't matter when you visit.

“Great way to see Key West”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Took the last train out. "Engineer" Mark was very knowledgeable and passionate about educating everyone about Key West. The train is also a great way to get to different parts of the island since it makes three stops, where you can get on/off.

“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.
