The 90 minute bus tour around Key West was chock filled with history and facts about Key West. The bus driver was very knowledgeable and told a lot of stories about the history of the island. This tour includes admission to the aquarium and the Shipwreck Museum. your trolley tour provide you with a pass for the entire day. After the initial to where you have the rest of the day to wander around Key West. We had lunch at Hemingway's favorite watering hole, Sloppy Joe's... outstanding meal and a very fair price. Every establishment on DeVol Street had live music all afternoon.
They overbook this excursion. This is a trolley that you can get off and explore parts of the Keys, then jump back on whenever you want. The problem is since they overbook, you might have to wait over an hour to get back on a trolley because there aren't any seats when you want to go to your next destination.
During this tour, the tour guide informed us of a disturbing fact. 80% of the people living in the Keys are on welfare. If it wasn't for the cruise lines, the Keys would be in a sorry state.
Grace was our driver and very knowledgeable. It was a hop-on-hop-off type of trolley. We rode the full circle, then got off on the second time around. Great way to hit the sights you want to see with the time that you have in port.
tour was very informative & entertaining. The only negatives were: things were a little confusing getting off the ship & locating the person with your stickers for admission & the restrooms in Key West left a lot to be desired.
I enjoyed the trolley. It was a nice cool ride with 13 stops to get off/on. Tour guide/driver was friendly and knowledgable. My husband said it wasn't his thing And he would have rather stayed on the ship, but I liked it.
It was a nice ride around the town.. but our driver...Named Rich, was kinda odd, he did not like anyone speaking on the tour.. even if the passengers were pointing out what he was talking about.. He stopped the tour for everyone to quit talking.. At the next stop, everyone got off the bus, and just waited for the next bus, then everything was fine.. he was a little strange
Loved touring Hemingway's house and seeing all the cats, but wish I would have opted to forego the the trolley tickets. It was good to hear the facts about the island, but it wasn't worth the money as small as the island is. We easily walked to the Southernmost Point for photos and only rode the trolley once halfway around. With the limited time of the cruise ship being in port, we didn't have time to fully use the trolley. It was still WAY CHEAPER than booking through the cruise. Their scare tactics about guaranteeing the ship won't leave if you book through them is RIDICULOUS! They charge so much more than if you book direct!
LOVED Key West. Trolley Tour guide left something to be desired and his mic kept cutting out. We got off the tour, did a lot of walking, went to the Hemingway House, the public library, Caroline's for lunch, and mile marker 0.
