We had a ticket we could use over two days and we also go a discount for the Hemingway house, so ask if your thinking of going. We found this tour really good fun and used it a few times over the two days. If you have kids they will love it. It's a really good way of seeing the... More

Our guide, "Sponge Bob" was excellent. Clear voice, very well informed, enthusiastic and attentive to children on board. Key West has so much history and so much to see, this is an excellent way to get your arms around it. For those with children: I took my 7 year old granddaughter with me. My daughter (her mother) said this was... More

This tour is probably not the best for transportation because there are only very few stops. But if you want a 1.5h drive around Key West packed with lots of information, history and jokes then it might be right for you. I found it to be an interesting overview over Key West.

We have been to Key West many times and have never taken the Conch Train tour. We had a great time, laughed and learned a lot about Key West history from our knowledgeable and humorous guide/engineer, Mark. Did you know that Key West was the richest per capita city and then the poorest per capita city? Do you know why?... More

Avoid the last towed car or two as they swing and bounce so much that most everyone in the group got motion sickness (an uncommon occurrence for us). The benches do not have adequate leg room for an average adult. Our tour lasted an hour and that was enough. The driver/narrator droned on in a monotone, was often difficult to... More

My husband and I rode the Conch Tour Train on a rainy day during our recent Key West vacation. Honestly, I thought it would be corny, but it was an outstanding activity that was both fun and informative. Our guide, TJ, had a great sense of humor and was very informative about Key West. I would have taken a second... More

This was not our first Conch Train tour – we enjoy refreshers every time we visit Key West. Our driver/guide this time, BJ, was exceptional – lots of info, and even more laughter.

This informative 90 minute train ride around Key West gives a nice overview of architecture, history, and sights of the area and all you have to do is board. Bring a pillow for extra comfort - you tend to feel the bumps in the road in several places.

Historical informative worthwhile experience for about 1.5hrs around the beautiful town, options to hop off also. Great staff explaining the history of the town. Great idea to see whole town without the walking!

We enjoyed the Conch train in Key West. Drivers are knowledgeable and skilled. It was a great way to get an over view of Key West. We hit the highlights.
