Stop for breakfast en route (own expense) and learn more about the area from on-board commentary.

You’ll have six hours to explore Key West at leisure. Choose from three optional activities to suit your interests: snorkeling, parasailing, and a glass-bottomed boat tour, or a combination. There will be plenty of time for relaxing on the beach, shopping, and dining, too, and your guide can provide recommendations.

Friendliness of driver and tour guide. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. Absolutely no issues with our experience. And pickup and dropoff from our hotel was perfect. Other tours did not provide this option. I do wish we brought food or snacks for ride back to hotel. We were very hungry.

Perfect day to walk the island
Kathleen_F, Feb 2024
Such a great way to visit Key West for the day. We did not do an excursion but spent the day walking around the island. It was the right amount of time to see all the sights and eat a meal and have a few drinks. Perfect day!
a awesome experience
Joaquin_O, Feb 2024
our tour guy orlando and his crew was nice and courteous definitely we recommend , the city and everything around wonderful
One of our best coach trips 🤩
Jackie_C, Feb 2024
Our tour guide on the bus gave us lots of information during the bus journey to Key West. An early start but we did a breakfast stop at McDonald’s. We had 7 hours at Key West and well worth the long day to experience the vibes of this beautiful place
Long day but excellent day.

Arrival was on time and ride was pleasant. My excursion was canceled, I received the refund promptly. I was happy with the service.
Snorkel adventure
Timothy_T, Feb 2024
Not having to drive to or from was an amazing plus. You don't have to worry about being tired going or coming and can enjoy your self. I apologize because I don't remember all the snorkel crews names but Atlantic fury was the boat. We had a wonderful time. Only complaint was/ is there's never enough time to do everything you want. After the snorkel tour we are at the yummy crab that was good and staff was friendly. Most importantly we made it safe in both directions.
Just say NO

Worst trip I’ve ever booked on here. The only pick up location near the airport is in the most pedestrian unfriendly area of the city. You can’t walk to it from anywhere really and requires an Uber/Lyft to get there. The entire way down the tour guide says everything in both English and Spanish which is super annoying. If you’re in America you better know how to understand English. No one needs to hear it twice. The power plugs on the bus weren’t working and never got the WiFi to work either. On the way down you stop for breakfast but y’all you stop at a McDonalds and CVS. There are HUNDREDS of local mom and pop places in the Keys but McDonalds? Come on. There’s at least a Publix in their parking lot and a Dunkin a short walk away which I went to. On the way down he repeats “530” (the return pick up time) about 90 million times. On the way back we were told we’d be dropped off by 830. I was the first hotel and it was 910 before I got dropped off. They practically beg for tips and they made a rude comment to me when I didn’t leave one. Who tf carries cash in 2024? Also we were supposed to have 6 hours but because the driver drives at speeds similar to those of a sloth we only had 5.5 despite being told we’d have 6 regardless of what time we got there. Lastly Key West is a major tourist trap too and not worth the visit.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Hello, I am very sorry that you did not like the tour; however, to be transparent to those who read your comment, I have to explain certain things. The tour is a shared tour, therefore although we have many pick-up locations that are published on the website, in the airport area all companies use the Regency Hotel because it is located on a busy avenue, easy to get to and with Parking available for those who drive there. Miami is a huge city, and it is not easy to walk to many places. I suppose that being in the airport area, you must have taken some transportation to other places because that area is not an area of tourist attractions. I suggest, next time, that you stay in a tourist area such as Miami Beach and there, you can be picked up for all the tours. It is a bilingual tour, English / Spanish, and it's published like this. We stopped at McDonald's for breakfast, although there were other things nearby (in fact, you went to another place) because it is more efficient to serve large groups quickly and thus arrive earlier in Key West. The driver was going slowly because most of the route is not a highway and has a maximum controlled speed of 55 mi/h and even less in certain places. Thank you for telling us that our driver was responsible for his work. The bus has Wi-Fi, but there is not good service in the Everglades area, but it is not a problem with our Wi-Fi. Maybe your plug to charge your cell phone didn't work, I'm sorry, but there were several empty seats when I traveled and you could have changed places and told the guide to notify maintenance and have it fixed, I'm sorry for "that" inconvenience. I hope I have answered each of the points questioned to clarify for whoever reads your comment. Thank you for taking your time and leaving us your comments.

The best trip which we had during our journey to Florida Well organized, everything on time. The guide is a true enthusiast!
Convenient way to travel to the Keys.
Marsha_S, Feb 2024
Staying on Miami Beach I don't have a rental car. This trip picks you up and drops you off right at your hotel! It is great to not have to drive down to Key West. Our travel guide was Louis and he was great! I also did the glass bottom boat activity. It was a beautiful day for that trip.
Key West - fantastic 16 hour trip
Donna_M, Feb 2024
Lewis the tour guide was fantastic. The trip is really long on the return. Many hotel stops from airport to downtown to beach takes over 4 hours return. It’s a hell of a long day! But worth it once not twice!
Suggested for everybody
Julia_S, Jan 2024

The tour director was wonderful and driver very safe ! The visuals of the ocean and gulf were amazing with a tour guide telling us all about the keys and we could see everything sitting on the upper deck
Adventurous Day Trip to the Keys
Marvia_B, Jan 2024
This was an amazing experience. The instructor was very nice, understanding, respectful, helpful, funny, etc. I wish I had cash so I could give him a trip because he made the experience better. I wish when booking the experience that there would be information on parking at the pick up spots because it almost cost us to miss our ride. Also if we are paying for parking, what the payment method that the location accepts. Knowing that would help us, the tourist, plan better. Also, the 6 hours should start when we arrive, park, and everyone goes their separate ways instead of when we get to Key West. Even though the bus arrived to Key West at 12:10, we did not get to the bus parking lot till 12:30-12:45. That cuts the 6 hours in Key West short for those of us who want to soak every minute. Other than those issues, it was an amazing experience that we would definitely do again.
A very good tour!
Petros_K, Jan 2024
This was a wonderful tour.our guide David was very kind and professional.he explained everything to us.we had a great time in the wonderful tropical key West!one thing I want to say,the tour was named, full day tour to key West with activities.but we had nothing activity!!
Fantastic Trip! A memorable experience!
Sebahate_S, Jan 2024
The trolley bus through the island, which I was suggested to get by the Miami bus driver. It saved my time and I was able to see the whole island and learn about the Key West history and 13 points of interest. The bus driver was well-informed, knowledgeable and funny. The experience was fun. If i hadn’t taken the trolley I wouldn’t be able to see the whole island. Thereafter, I had time to hang out in the Mallory Square, visit museums, stores and do shopping. The trip from Miami to Key West was amazing—a lot of beautiful things to see—40 Florida’s keys. The bus driver was knowledgeable and informative, making the whole experience unique and unforgettable!!! Price was modest and reasonable comparable to services! Highly recommended!
A great day trip
Katharina_V, Jan 2024
We had a great trip to Key West. The bus was punctual and even called shortly before arrival. They explained everything about the trip to us, and answered questions. There is enough time to explore Key West with the map you get in the bus. We can highly recommend a day trip to Key West and to go with this tour :)
Take the trip, you won't regret!!!
Corinna_L, Jan 2024
Luis is a very knowledgeable and funny tour guide. Super respectful and kind. Manny, perfect bus driver!! The tour itself deserves 5 stars, everything was on time, affordable price. Only thing that made me take one star off was the super cold AC in the bus. Bring a blanket for the ride.
Key West is beautiful… need to stay over in order to enjoy it
Zoe_N, Jan 2024
Long day but our driver was perfect. The bus though had broken seats and needed inside cleaning. We would like to suggest a small tour of Key West while we were there… 6 hours is long while to tour ourselves
Love Key West!
Su_G, Jan 2024
Wonderful tour guide and very patient driver! Finally saw Hemingway cats and learned what mahi-mahi looks like! People including store workers are so nice and welcoming. This was a day trip! Next time I will stay a while!
