A great way to get around Key West and see all the major sights. No easy to get your tickets; they don't accept the Viator voucher and instead require you to fill out a "lost voucher/ticket" form. Very similar to a hop on/hop off bus.

Highly Uncomfortable

I am handicapped and it shows that it is handicapped accessible. There was no knee room and I am only 5’4”! The ride was so bumpy I had to get off at first stop due to knee and back pain. I had to pay more to go on the tour bus which is affiliated and told to request a refund via mail. Please warn people ahead of time about these issues. A person with no physical issues would be fine I’m sure. Guide was very nice for 5 minutes that I was on it. We spent $100 for an hour and a half ride. I am so upset.

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.
