It was a great way to see the city and learn the history enjoyed being able to jump on and off when needed. The tour operators know their history
Good way to see relevant sites

Nice way to get around and get your bearings. You can hop on and off through out the day. Good narration and history. Differently, worth it
Leisurely Informative Tour
, Aug 2021
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Key West. We enjoyed the leisurely pace of the tour and hearing stories of days gone by. The train was not crowded at all so it was easy to distance and feel safe. The only negative was that there was not enough leg room so had to sit sideways. This may have been because we sat in the front though. We would certainly take this tour again.
If sucked because I couldn’t my reservation
, Aug 2021
It was terrible because viator took my money and did not give me a reservation number through their online portal so I called AMEX to dispute the charge that Viator did not give me a reservation number after almost 30 minutes on the phone!! It’s better to just go direct to the tour operator for sure!!
Great time!

We enjoyed the train but it was hard to hear the guide. He talked way too fast and the speakers were poor.
