Ok so I am not impressed with the company that operates the tour to and from key west, however the scenery on the ride and key west itself is simply amazing. The first day we could not find where we were supposed to be picked up downtown so Mary called and said they were looking for my wife and I. Since a language barrier existed and I could not really understand her with the Cuban accent I asked if we could reschedule and get a pickup closer to where we were stating for the following day, and the company accommodated us. So the next day we wake up and stand at the bus stop next door to where we were staying at 630 am and the bus starts picking people up from random areas around Miami beach and downtown Miami. Soon after everyone is on board Mary introduces herself and tells the passengers that the bus will only make one stop that morning at 8am for a ten minute breakfast stop and no further stops until we get to the Marina in key west at around 11am. Maria also lets the passengers know that the restroom at the rear of the bus is only for doing number 1 and only in emergencies. Once we arrived at key west the bus let everyone off at their various activities and Maria let everyone know where to meet the tour bus at 5 pm sharp or risk being left because they would not call nor look for anyone when leaving the island. My wife and i took the parasailing adventure and the guides on our boat were very entertaining and made the experience a ton of fun. You can tell the island revolves around tourism and the people are allot friendlier than in Miami were everyone acts like a New York City transplant.The ride back is a nightmare some guy threw up on the bus in the first hour all over the floor, the smell despite that we did not stop. The speed limit on the only two lane highway that leads to key west is 55 so we did not get back to the city until around 830 pm at that time they let some people off for a break but those were the ones taking the bus on to Fort Lauderdale those of us going to Miami beach had to stay on. Well just so happens the night we are coming back from the tour is the beginning of Urban Weekend on South Beach so the police have everything blocked off and it takes another 2 hours just to drop us close to our room. Long story short loved key west and parasailing hatred the bus tour.
