My parents and I only took the the round trip transportation from Miami Beach to key west. Our driver was great and very friendly. We felt save and would drive with him again! The 6 hours in key west are indeed not enough to explore and enjoy everything but it was a great first impression and first taste of key west for us.

Excellent We did the hop on hop off trolley bus Drivers we had were brill, very informative and super friendly and answered any questions Key West is beautiful and well worth a visit Only little fault was the bus driver on the trip down to Key West If you booked your activity with another agent (such as GetYourGuide ) he made it clear that he wouldn’t help you You were on your own But at the end he almost demanded a genourous tip ha ha ha !!!

The trip was great, Key west was awesome and super beautiful. We had an amazing day over there! However, the company did their job pretty poorly; we didn’t have a quide and the buss driver had no idea where is the snorkling thing, even tho it was part of our package and booked it through get your guide. Also bus’s outlets didnt work. But in total, it was a great day!
