After arriving at the Port of Key West, get to know this island city and its top attractions on an entertaining and educational Conch Tour Train excursion.

The Conch Tour Train is a tribute to industrialist Henry Flagler’s “railway over the sea,” an engineering miracle when he brought the railroad to Key West in 1912. This tour has treated visitors to a detailed look at the island city’s most historic and interesting attractions for more than 50 years.

The train departs daily from the Front Street Depot and ends roughly 90 minutes later at popular Mallory Square, where everyone comes to hang out, eat and shop. Throughout the tour, see the area’s top attractions and learn about its many residents, past and present. See some of the places Ernest Hemingway used to hang out and find out why Harry Truman spent so much time on the island. Listen to stories of pirates, Indians and wreckers and find out how they gave Key West its reputation.

A sightseeing tour of Key West has never been easier — or more fun — than this Conch Tour Train view of the island. Experience Key West in this unique way. 

This excursion is located within a 10-minute walk to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Key West. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Conch Tour Train
While you’re in port in Key West, hop on the Conch Tour Train for a trip around the southernmost island in the archipelago that is one of America’s finest jewels. The train will take you on a ride through Key West’s past – go back to the days before civilization, when fierce Native Americans left their enemy's bones to bleach in a tropical wilderness, naming the island Bone Key. Hear about bold Spanish explorers, brave “wreckers,” great cigar barons and sponge magnets. Get to know characters like John James Audubon, Ernest Hemingway and Harry S Truman and, like them, become captivated by Key West’s magic. Please note: This excursion is located within a 10-minute walk to the cruise port so you determine the time you return to your ship in Key West.

We had a wonderful afternoon. The jokes were corny but the scenery was great. I had my elderly mother with me and the crew could not have handled her better. They brought a step for her to make it easier for on/off transport and stored her walker for us.

The tour was very thorough and provided a lot of interesting information. I enjoyed that aspect of it. On the other hand, we found the tour operators to be very rude beforehand. I was not greeted at all, and when I had to get them to interact with me to ask a question, they were curt and unwelcoming. That is very uncommon for tour operators. I've been on several, and they were the rudest I've ever encountered. Additionally, even though the viator purchase states you can provide a paper ticket or an e-ticket, we experienced a great deal of trouble presenting our e-ticket to the counter. At first, they were refusing to honor our e-tickets, and therefore, did not intend to let us ride. Obviously, that was not going to be an option, and we had to help them troubleshoot the obvious. We should not have had to do that. This particular team needs a lot of work in the customer service department.

Tour was great but there was a ton of confusion in trying to get on the train. We pre-purchased tickets and were told to stand in line to get the actual ticket. Got in line and then got pulled out and told to wait for someone to bring us tickets. We waited about 15 minutes and then had to go find the person. Took about 20 minutes to get on a train.
