we paid extra for the snorkeling trip which was absolutely incredible and well worth the money. The bus ride down/back was very lackluster. driver was on his phone very loud the first 20 min of the trip and took calls the whole way. the only guided touring they did was tell us over the intercom what extra services to buy. and on the way back, they stated that the driver isn't included in the price of the tour and that we all need to tip him in order for him to get paid. The driver didn't speak any english so we could not ask questions or even thank him on the way out.

Overall a good tour. The journey by bus was pleasant. Unfortunately, a breakfast stop was made at McDonalds. Another location would have been better. Arrived in Key West everything was very clear. The snorkeling tour was very nice with free alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The boat tour is to be rated with five stars. However, the bus didn't leave until 5:40 p.m. on the return trip. Unfortunately that was a bit too late. Unfortunately, the tour guide only spoke broken English.

The bus ride went as described. In the double-decker bus you have a beautiful view of nature along the Keys. There is no guide on the bus and the bus driver hardly speaks English. As a tourist it is only possible to understand when to be back by asking. When asked, the bus driver reacted irritably and asked if we hadn't been listening. All activities can be booked early on the bus. Only then will you be sent in the direction of the activity, otherwise you have to manage on your own. Everyone on the bus agreed that while the activities were what they said they were, they were short (snorkeling effectively 30min). The hop on hop off ticket is the best. You learn a lot and can always discover something on your own. These small buses depart from the bus stops approximately every ten minutes. The lighthouse and the railway museum were our highlights.
