I will say at first, we were pretty confused and a little disappointed. We could barely hear the driver with her tour commentary but that wasn't really her fault, it was pretty noisy in town. We also sat directly in the sun, again, not their fault. The first part of the tour is where the disappointment really started, we seemed... More

Me and my wife rode the conch train on Monday 1/9. We both really enjoyed the tour of key west and the Truman house tour. The best part of the trip was the Tour guide Bob. He made the trip very entertaining. I would definitely recommend

This was a good way to explore key west and to get to know the history of the city but way too long in my opinion and a bit pricey. Also ride was extremely bumpy and it was difficult to hear the guide at times

This train is made for midgets! No leg room - very cramped on a full train. Guide spoke in a monotone and way to fast - no way you could choose what attractions you would want to visit later! Way overpriced! Try a trolley - it has to be better than this!

We covered a lot of Key West and learned a lot about it on this cute train tour but there weren't very many stops so it seemed To go on forever! Our kids were bored and cranky by the time we got to the first stop! We haven't done the trolley tour in Key West but in other cities and... More

I rated it poor because there are only 4 stops. And when we were sold the tickets he said we could buy tickets for other attractions at a discounted rate. Did not mention that you could only get discount when train tickets are purchase. The biggest complaint was the lack of stops. It was too pricey for what they gave... More

I was sorry to read that your tour with us did not meet your expectations. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. The Conch Tour Train is an open air, tram style vehicle. It takes a circuitous route around the oldest part of the city, appropriately called ‘Old Town’ by the locals. This route covers over 100... More

Touristy yes, but a fantastic way to get an overview for an hour and then pick your poison on where you want to go back and visit.

We also rode today with BJ train 106 between 1-3 pm. We had a full train and he spoke rapidly in a monotone voice and sped by areas of interest. He would advise what was approaching then made no effort to slow down or make sure people knew what he was saying. By the time I heard we were near... More

Did this on our first day in Key West. Gives you a good overview of the area and takes you past the main sights. Can be hard to hear the driver at times but worth doing if you're only visiting for a couple of days.

The drivers as well as guys taking tickets were really rude and short tempered with people when asked questions!! The first train we got on the drivers name was "BJ". He was still stopped with passengers looking for seats and trying to board the train. My husband was boarding at the last second when BJ started pulling forward. Instead of... More
