This was our first visit to Key West and this is certainly the tour to see things. It is a 90 minute round trip and I would advise doing the whole circuit before deciding whether to hop on or off. After all, you can go round as many times as you like. If you are lucky enough to have Louie as your driver then this excursion will be all the better - he was a scream. We thoroughly enjoyed it all from start to finish.
Good way to see Key West. Helpful staff. Entertaining, knowledgable, and friendly drivers. Would recommend this trip.
Excellent guides/speakers on trolley with one exception: A woman who spoke fast and in low tones so it was hard to hear her over the motor sounds.
Great fun! Learned a lot. The food was awesome at the best dive bar recommended by the guide,
This is the best tourist purchase you can make for multiple reasons.
First of all, it was a great way to get around the whole island. If we didn't want to walk all the way to somewhere, or wanted to get their quicker, we could just "hop on and hop off". Not only that, but they have a special trolley that makes runs to different hotels in New Key West, and takes you directly to Old Key West. It was perfect, we stayed at the Fairfield Inn and every morning took the trolley to Old Key West to start our day. We usually took a taxi back because we stayed out out late, but it was only a $10 taxi ride so wasn't bad at all.
The tour itself is great because you learn so much about all kinds of different historical places. We sat on and took the whole tour first, and then we walked or used the trolley to go back to all the places that sparked out interest.
The best part about the whole thing was that the drivers are the friendly-ist people in the world. You can't really strike up a conversation with them during the actual tour because they are talking the whole time, but we made friends with every driver during the shuttle trolley to and from our hotel. They told us all the great places to go to in Key West, what it was like living here, and all kinds of things!
Definitely recommend buying this tour pass. Plus, at the time that we were there in Key West, it was 'get the second day free'. Even though we bought it ahead of time here, it didn't matter. So we got to use the trolley for both days we were there, it was perfect! I don't know if they always do that or if it was a promotion, but keep it in mind.
KEY WEST IS A SMALL ISLAND, BUT THE GUIDE/DRIVERS MAKE THIS A FUN AND INTERESTING TOUR
A great way to get your bearings around this interesting town. The drivers were all very knowledgeable and very interesting. There was a cruise ship in port adding a lot of additional passengers, but they were very organised with additional shuttles etc.
Key west is a beautiful City. The trolley
is a great way to tour the city.
The trolley was great particularly because we had Louie as our guide. We stayed on all the way to the lowest point just because he was so interesting and funny. We had another guide on the way back who was very pleasant and informative so we enjoyed and learned so much about Key West from both of them. It's a must if you have only 1 day to see it all while in port from a cruise.
We purchased out tickets on line and saw what we paid was about $10 below the Carnival price. Viator also had other activities well below Carnival. If you are cruising, there is noi reason not to take advantage of this service. We got off a couple times and shortly later we would bet back on, very little wait which was a surprise since there were three boats in Key West and about 12,000 extra tourists. our tour guids were informative, easy to hear and funny. Easy to exchance the tickets by the way, we were a little worried about that. Would do this again in the future as well as purchase other events. There was a Senior Discount on the dock, which I did not see on the web site. so even more savings available if you have reached that level in your life.
Definitely great value for money! I was a bit hesitant in booking hop-on-hop-off tours, since the last one we did in a major city didn't go very well (atrocious waiting times) - but the folks in Key West run this like a well-oiled machine. Glad we decided to leave the car in the hotel!
