The bus drive was okay (I would give one star less). I followed my group because I thought our guide would bring me to the right place, but apparently the rest of the group took their tours somewhere else. I did the dolphin and snorkeling tour with Fury Water Adventures. The boat tour was amazing - I went with Captain Anna and we saw dolphins very close to the island, that’s why she took us out close to the reef snorkeling. After we were done snorkeling we were offered beer, wine, mimosas and sodas (they expect a tip at the end of the tour, but I would have tipped them anyways). We headed back with the bus at 6.15pm and I got off around 10.20pm in Miami Beach.
This full-day tour to Key West from Miami starts with a 4-hour drive across 43 bridges and 31 islands to America's “Caribbean Islands,” the Florida Keys.
The string of islands and islets, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, leads to Key West, the only frost-free city in the continental United States! Once in Key West, experience a Caribbean atmosphere complete with friendly street artists, lively outdoor cafés, and alfresco restaurants. Spend some time exploring Key West on your own.
Book lovers might like to visit Ernest Hemingway’s House to see the former home of the famous author. Or, if you prefer, you can go to the southernmost point of the continental United States at the famous "90 miles to Cuba" Monument.
Explore museums, such as the Mel Fisher Museum, the Light House Museum, or Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum ...
Driver and Guide were terrific. Breakfast stop was nice. For $10 per person was picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Really nice day. Highly recommended

You'll discover Key West's history of cursed treasure, voodoo, murder, suicide, haunted mansions, unexplained deaths, and more. Your professional "ghost host" will introduce you to the darkest side of Bone Island, and after 3 haunted pubs you will be issued a souvenir t-shirt before being released into the night.
Had a great ghost tour with Kelly. The tour was very informative and enjoyed the ghost stories. The tour was a casual walk with plenty of time for conversation. We were lucky to have a private tour as we were the only couple on the tour. Recommend this to if you want to learn a bit of history of Keys. If you are looking to do some drinking would recommend the pub crawl tour instead.
Climb aboard the Sunset One dolphin boat, sit back and listen to your tour guide explain where you are and where you are heading. Get ready to watch dolphins frolic in their natural playground.

Soak in this beautiful little chain of islands and jump into the gorgeous reef, perfect for snorkeling. See fish up close and maybe some turtles. Climb back aboard and settle yourself in for the ride back to the dock with an ice cold draft beer. Watch the beautiful panoramic sunset over the crystal clear turquoise waters.

Key West is a great trip well worth doing with some lovely scenery all the way there. The snorkelling was just as good - a fantastic experience. My advice would be to try and grab a table seat on the coach for extra comfort. 15 hours from pickup at hotel to drop off back at hotel so it is a full day.
Many find Key West a strange place during the day; but after the sun sets, the restless souls of the island’s frightful past begin to stir. On this 1-hour ghost tour, you will hear all-but-forgotten tales as you travel the dark and narrow streets of the Old Town. Pass 19th-century wooden houses that hold secret stories of former inhabitants; stories so tragic and chilling, you’ll soon see why Key West was named one of the top 10 most haunted cities in America. Your Ghost Host will add a pinch of humor to Key West's dark side with tales of deathly love, tragic endings, scores to settle, wrongs to right and ghastly folk - some so strange it will be hard to believe they’re true…
Our guide seemed to lover her job. Fun & entertaining. And learned about local history.

Great way to see key West! Guides were all fantastic and knowledgeable. Highly recommend
Leave Miami for the sandy beaches and relaxed vibe of Key West. Following hotel pickup, head to the unique hotspot where your adventure awaits. Parasailing should be on the top of your list of activities to do in Key West because of the sensational flight and the great views. First, float on a tropical breeze in a state-of-the-art parasail launch boat and glide above emerald waters. Then soar like a bird and look for dolphins below you. See brightly colored birds fly past, and marvel at the majesty of the Florida Keys landscape. Once you touch back down on land, take the opportunity to shop and check out local restaurants. After a full day, head back to Miami where you’ll be dropped back at your accommodation.
