On time, helpful and informative. Comfortable bus
Went on a bus that specializes in Key West. It was raining when the bus arrived at Key West. There was 6 hours for the activities. There are many activities. We had lunch at a seafood restaurant at a marina, then went on the conch train, then wen to the Truman vacation home. There went the 6 hours. There were other activities offered. No time to go on the other activities
A long day, but a very comfortable coach, and the driver and guide were very helpful.
Tour was very organized and the driver was very nice and he had a lot of knowledge about the Keys. I definitely recommend the tour.
I especially recommend the upgrade to the snorkeling cruise trip because it was just amazing and worth every penny! The water was super clear and the fish and corals were beautiful.
We were allowed to believe by the phone sales agent that this was a boat tour and when we tried to cancel were told the window to cancel had closed. All of that said, we ended up having a wonderful time on the BUS trip to Key West. The driver and seasoned pro gave a great narration (in 2 languages) along the trip. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone.
Maybe an over night tour in key west would be great. I know I would and im sure you would have more people. Otherwise the tour was excellent.
Did not go as the tour was cancelled due to bad weather.
The tour company failed to notify us until we ran them at 8 am after a scheduled pick up at 6-30am. Very poor.
The tour guides were knowledgable. It was very confusing when you first got to Stop 1. Why you were standing there in sweltering heat and 4 unmanned trolleys were waiting there? Didn't seem like any of the trolley organizers cared if you had a good time. The drivers definitely cared.
The tour guide in Key West was excellent. Also had good experience with the transfers to and from Ft. Lauderdale. The bus tour guide should correct her information on the capital of Florida
The Day Trip we started at the Ft.Lauderdale Hilton which they told us not too many people are picked up the 3 of us were the only passengers in the van to Miami. It was a rainy morning and alot of traffic. We boarded a bus in Miami picking up passengers. Travelling to Key West it was the driver who spoke no english he did not help us onto the bus or off, other trips we have had the drivers stand outside the bus door but ours seem to run off. The assistant and trip adivisor on the bus her English was very poor the whole trip we did not understand her and other passengers commented. For instance ISLAND was pronounced ICELAND i thought she was talking about passengers from Iceland. Overall this was the main concern that there was no conversation between trip guide and passenger, also asking for a tip at the end of the trip which most people travelling observe this on their own. Thankyou please have this reviewed its important.
It is a long day if you leave from Fort Lauderdale as there are pick ups from many Miami hotels and drop off's especially on the way back....
But if you do not want to drive down there or cannot drive then the whole trip is good value for money and a great day out!
Keywest was nice.
My regret was that we wanted to sit at the front part of the bus, so that we thought we could have the better view. We went the Hilton Hotel Fort lauderdake at 5 am in the morning and waited for the bus. The bus arrived and we could have the very front seat of the bus. We were so happy but when the bus arrived at Miami. The driver told us to change the to the other bus. So, we had to move to the other bus which was almost full and we had to sit separately at the end of the bus. (Our group was 4. ).

We took a day tour down to Key West. The tour guide spoak broaken English and had very little knowledge of any area that we traveled through. We expected some information about the different Keys that we passed through. At one time we passed an airport and his information was "on your right is the Key (I don't remember which key) airpport." The tour was very unorganized. Our day on Key West was very good. The trollys are worth every penny and the time. The guides were very knowledgeable and at least had some personnallity. I wold not recommend a "Viator" tour to anyone.
The bus did not stop on the return trip making people have to use the on bus toilet. This created a nasty smell in the back half of the bus, smelled like ammonia. If they don't want the toilet used, they need to stop before the end of four hours! I would not use this service unless I saw an itinerary that included stops.
