"Great way to see the sites with children and older parents!"

We were on an Excursion from a cruise that we took in Key West. We took this train as a way to get around and see things in a relatively quick fashion. The people working the train and the ticket booths were extremely friendly and helpful. Tim was our train engineer :-) and he did a fantastic job, as he was witty and funny! In addition he let my younger children hop up into the driver's seat and take pictures like they were train Engineers! While it is a little bit pricey it was well worth it. We would have never been able to walk around and see as much as we did with small children in tow and my father who is an older gentleman who needs to watch his activity level. I would definitely recommend the train tour!

"Continued a Family Tradition"

I first rode the Conch Train as a baby in 1968. I've been on it several times since, but this time I had my own family with me for the first time. It did not disappoint. The best way to get a feel for Key West and learn the history of what you see. We bought our tickets online and saved. Make sure you don't activate your online tickets until you are ready to redeem them at the Conch Train kiosk. It is a hop on, hop off tour that you can use as transportation all day with designated stops and a bathroom break. Our tour went on in spite of a downpour and we were provided ponchos and the option to get off of continue. We were already soaked so we continued and made the drenching we got part of the adventure. We finished the tour, got off for lunch, and since the rain stopped hopped back on for the dryer version of the tour. Wouldn't you know it rained again?! Our guides had different personalities, so the tours were both different. We learned a lot and enjoyed not having to walk around to see the sights, learning which things piqued our interest for us to return to later.

"VERY VERY OVERPRICED"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 05, 2019 NEW
The "train" tour takes you down some of the main streets of Key West and makes 4 stops where you can get on/off the train and wander around. My biggest gripe is the cost - it was $140 for the 4 of us to ride the train for about 1 hour to see the sites after they added all their taxes and fees (and we had a coupon applied as well). The guides varied in their approach, some offered a lot of information by talking constantly, others basically sat there and said something once in a while. You won't be able to get any pictures while riding the train, as they don't slow down when going past a place of interest, (like Ernest Hemingway's House). I highly recommend you save that money and walk around the town, then spend the money on food, drink, or souvenirs. We went to Theater of the Sea in Islamorada another day, had 3 hours of live entertainment with animals, and spent less! I would say $15 is more in line with what the conch train should charge - IMO.

"nice open air tour of Old Town Key West"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 02, 2019 NEW
I thought it was a little pricey for the tour. Our driver was courteous. We thought there was a stop closer to Hemingway's home. I was with a handicap friend and it was quite a walk for her from the stop to the home. I've been on better tours but it was fun. This tour was 90 minutes, gave overview of key west history and main sights of interest. This is not hop on hop off!! Only 2 stops.
