the bud was late in the morning but it was super fine. the drive was very good we slept and only woke up to the scenic bits. we didn't feel like there was enough hours there in the day to explore! so much to see! everyone was so friendly would recomend spending the night there if possible. very charming town we bought activities such as the key west train separately with get your guide so was cheaper. definitely bring physical money to tip ! the beach was amaizing. we took uber to the places the train didn't stop at but if u can rent a golf kart I think would be good or bikes. plenty of bars with music we had the best homemade Italian ice cream as well- absolutely lush. the drive back was peaceful but the toilet on the bus was unkempt but this is to be expected so bring your own toilet roll and spray

This was a great trip. Was a little disappointed that we had to change locations of the snorkeling because of the weather, not their fault of course but other than that we had a great time. I do recommend eating a little something before since the light breakfast is just a muffin. The crew were great and the mimosas were good. Highly recommend this experience.

The tour has 4 convenient stops, and was very informative about some if the island’s history. The guide was very entertaining. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Key West.

Long ride down but better than driving ourselves and cheap for the distance

Very informative, and the smaller attendance was more personal.
