What people are saying about Key West

A great day trip! Definitely a must do when in Florida. I had booked the snorkeling option. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but despite everything it was a successful snorkeling tour! A small point of criticism: it was incredibly cold on the bus. Unfortunately, you couldn't even display the air conditioning. It is therefore advisable to pack a jacket and, if necessary, a towel for your legs.

This tour with Marjorie was our TOP 2 or even one for all of my friends who went. Marjorie was super knowledgeable, friendly, and could tell loved and takes pride in what she does. The food was delicious!! My friend has been to Key West at least 20 times, but did this for the first time. We highly recommend it!! We added the $17 alcohol drink package---of course & well worth it.

Pretty straightforward exprience - you get picked up in Miami, transported to Key West where you spend the afternoon. Our driver also connected us with a snorkeling organizers, so we went snorkeling in the nearby reef. All in all pretty nice afternoon with snorkeling in beautiful waters, good food and drinks, and a bit of Key West exploring.

Very personable and knowledgeable guide - Chris. Excellent choice of restaurants; delicious food. Great hospitality and service. Only suggestion: End the tour in an air conditioned location that participants can cool off and chill out after the tour is over.

Amazing day, everything was so wonderful from start to finish
