Famous but terrible!

Long train with uncomfortable seats and poor public address system. Could not hear driver/commentator. Commentator had given this tour too many times and was melodic in his information. Very annoying. Beware of older man with beard. Took the trolley the next day and P.A. System was good and driver was informative. Seats a little more comfortable but had a good tour on the Trolley. Skip the famous Conch Train and take the Trolley. Same company I understand.

This was a great way to see the main sights of Key West in a short time frame. The driver was very informative, giving us an overview of the history of Key West. Lots of photo opportunities and gives you your bearings to explore further independently.

Perfect to get around and see the area!The stops were planned in the places where the tourist attractions were most prevalent! Only issue was the audio system when seated in the rear of the train. It was difficult to hear the tour guide due to the traffic noise,etc. Give it a try!

Fun, informative, bumpy and a bit long 90 minutes The train stops a couple of times if you chose to get off, use the bathroom or shop and hop on the next one that arrives. If you happen to be driving there, parking is difficult. I would recommend this tour.
