Best Key West Shore Excursion: Conch Tour Train

Key West Shore Excursion: Conch Tour Train

While you’re in port in Key West, hop on the Conch Tour Train for a trip around the southernmost island in the archipelago that is one of America’s finest jewels. The train will take you on a ride through Key West’s past – go back to the days before civilization, when fierce Native Americans left their enemy's bones to bleach in a tropical wilderness, naming the island Bone Key.

Hear about bold Spanish explorers, brave “wreckers,” great cigar barons and sponge magnets. Get to know characters like John James Audubon, Ernest Hemingway and Harry S Truman and, like them, become captivated by Key West’s magic.

4 star rating: Recommended February 2013

Tour was great but there was a ton of confusion in trying to get on the train. We pre-purchased tickets and were told to stand in line to get the actual ticket. Got in line and then got pulled out and told to wait for someone to bring us tickets. We waited about 15 minutes and then had to go find the person. Took about 20 minutes to get on a train.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

The tour was very thorough and provided a lot of interesting information. I enjoyed that aspect of it. On the other hand, we found the tour operators to be very rude beforehand. I was not greeted at all, and when I had to get them to interact with me to ask a question, they were curt and unwelcoming. That is very uncommon for tour operators. I've been on several, and they were the rudest I've ever encountered. Additionally, even though the viator purchase states you can provide a paper ticket or an e-ticket, we experienced a great deal of trouble presenting our e-ticket to the counter. At first, they were refusing to honor our e-tickets, and therefore, did not intend to let us ride. Obviously, that was not going to be an option, and we had to help them troubleshoot the obvious. We should not have had to do that. This particular team needs a lot of work in the customer service department.
