Full description

Experience the southernmost city in the United States, Key West, by land, air, and sea on a day trip by bus from Miami. Choose to ride on a glass-bottom boat, to parasail, to hop on and off of a trolley, and more to see Key West from all perspectives. Stroll through the charming streets, stopping to shop and wine and dine at your own pace.

Start bright and early with a pickup from your Miami Beach or downtown Miami hotel. Cross 42 bridges and hop across 32 islands en route to Key West, marveling at the turquoise waters and swaying palm trees surrounding you.

Arrive in Key West and be enchanted by the colorful atmosphere, street artists, and outdoor cafes. Explore all that Key West has to offer on a number of add-on activities — the ideal day for travelers who enjoy doing their own thing.

Explore the many sights, shops, and restaurants in Key West at your leisure. Soak in the Caribbean feel of the city and choose to take a glass-bottom boat ride over the third largest reef in the world, to snorkel in warm waters from a catamaran at sea, to parasail from up on high, to hop on and off from a charming trolley tour, or to sit on the sweet conch train.

The pickup at the meeting point (this was changed by email the day before, but was not far from the original location) worked very punctually. Plenty of sporting excursions were offered and sold on the trip to Key West. Of course, you can organize the 6 hours on site yourself. All in all a recommendable trip!

Good option for a quick day trip to Key West from Miami. Bus was on time for pick up. Bus was an older model some chairs were broken and the back of the bus reeked of urine but overall a comfortable ride. The breakfast stop was brief but allowed time for everyone on the bus to get a quick bite and bathroom break. Be sure to bring cash as the restaurant they take you too only accepts cash. Snorkeling trip was lots of fun. Unfortunately the water was a little cloudy but fishes were still visible. We were warned beforehand of the low visibility and a refund was offered if desired. After snorkeling we were advised to eat since we would not be making any stops on our way back to Miami. Plenty of dinning options. Lilly our guide provided us with all the information we needed and made sure we all made it back.

The bus was on time. Large, comfortable bus with USB sockets and toilets. However, for those who are astride the barrier gestures, contrary to what is planned, there is no temperature measurement or distance planned in the bus, and people are allowed in without a mask ... The journey is pleasant, the guide is very professional. Only downside: we are sold options on the bus (tram tour in particular) supposedly cheaper than on site, which is not true, since they are even more expensive than if we had bought them separately on their own site. . Unpleasant feeling of having been fooled. The tram tour is expensive for a visit of little interest. Better to rent a bike on site.
