Originally built as a train route, the highway was rebuilt in the 1980s. You may recognize Seven Mile Bridge, the most famous bridge along the route, from movies such as 'True Lies,' '2 Fast 2 Furious,' and 'Mission Impossible III.' In Key West, explore the pedestrian-friendly town on your own. Visit the Ernest Hemingway House, hop on the Conch Train Tour, shop the art galleries along Duval Street, or grab a cold beverage and enjoy the laid-back island lifestyle. Those who chose to add on activities such as snorkeling, parasailing, or a glass-bottom boat tour make their way to their selected activity. When your time in Key West is up, board the bus for the return trip home, arriving back in Miami just in time for bed.

I was picked up at my Hotel in North Beach. We drove 5.5 hours to Key West. We had about 6 hours in Key West. My Glass bottom boat trip was canceled due to wind. I was able to find a sailing charter for 60.00.

The sailing charter was worth giving an A+
Key West overall was worth Giving an A+
The Seafood at A and B Lobster was worth giving an A+
Key Lime Pie was A+

It really was 11 hours of bus ride though.. If I had to do it over I would take a bus or rental car to Key West and stay for at least 1 or 2 nights.. The hotels start around 200.00 per night, but the experience of Key West makes it worthwhile.

Our family has got nice and memorable expressions from this full-day trip from Miami. The bus driver was professional, he arrived at the pickup location on time, the road to/from Key West was a breath and we came back to Miami earlier than expected. However, there was no tour guide on the bus (the driver made occasional comments on some placed we were passing by but that's not considered as a "Narrated tour"). The total time we spent in Key West was around 6 hours which seemed OK for the first time (we will definetely come back!). I would recommend this tour as an affordable and "no hassle" way to experience Key West without a car. Also, they offer a discount when you buy "optional" Key West activities from the driver.

We had an awesome tour guide that picked us right up and dropped us off at a hotel close to our Airbnb. The drop off in Key West was in the middle of everything and you get over 6 hours to do your own thing! So much cheaper than renting a car for the day, and we also didn’t have to worry about driving or parking. He also gave us tips, but most importantly, allowed us to sleep to/from Key West. It is a long day, but worth it. The bus was comfortable, and had adjustable A/C. Only downside was that there wasn’t cup holders or anywhere on the bus to charge our phones, but we were able to charge our phones at a restaurant while we ate, so it worked out. We got picked up at 7am and got back around 9:30pm. I would totally recommend this for anyone vacationing in Miami who want to spend the day in Key West!

First let me start off with the positive which is this is a great price to be taken from Miami Beach to Key West. They pick you up near where you are staying. They were about 20 or 30 minutes late picking us up and I had called the number given however no one answered and I left a message. Come to find out the bus had been sitting a few blocks down that whole time but we did not realize they were waiting on other customers before picking us up or we would’ve just walked down to that meeting point.

The bus was comfortable and because of Covid they attempted to space us out appropriately. They did make sure everyone had masks on and temperature checked.

We sat in the front area and noticed a lot of lights were on the dashboard lit up. We picked up everyone except for the last two guests and the bus driver and the coordinator only spoke in Spanish and we were not sure what was going on but she didn’t announced that we were going to switch buses because he did not feel safe using the bus that we had. Fair enough.

We then switch buses and begin our journey. The bathroom was not clean and had no toilet paper. The coordinator went from seat to seat selling different attractions in Key West. She was very enthusiastic until we told her that we were renting mopeds and would not need any attractions and she had a complete face change and just walked off. I am sure she gets a pretty good commission selling the expensive attractions.

On our way to Key West we pulled off the road to a breakfast spot and was herded in very quickly We are most breakfast deals were around eight to $10. I believe cash only. We had less than 30 minutes to get a whole busload of people through the line and completely finish eating and back on the bus.

Once we arrived in Key West we spent a wonderful day there and at the end of the day after many many warnings that the bus would leave people who were late we actually ended up waiting 30 or 40 minutes on people and we’re late getting back.

Finally, our bus kept stalling and outside of Miami it broke down completely. There were no announcements made and nobody conveyed what was going on as we watch the bus driver and another gentleman outside the bus laughing and talking and smoking. Finally someone spoke up and said should I call an Uber or what is going on? We had already sat on the bus for about 40 minutes. The coordinator then finally tells us a bus is on its way. So on a very busy interstate we had to get off of the bus and walk a very narrow path on the interstate to get on to the next bus. So be warned… Both buses that we were on either we’re going to break down or did break down. Also know if you do not speak Spanish you are in the minority and things are not quickly conveyed.

The pictures are blurry because I was mostly taking video which I cannot figure out how to load here.

Thank you for your review! We do apologize for the issues you experienced with the bus breaking down. We do our best to conduct timely maintenance on all our coaches; however, they may occasionally break down due to factors outside of our control. Normally when this happens we try our best to ensure the customer still enjoys the 6 hours they were promised in Key West, which I believe was the case during your trip. It does seem that communication regarding the next steps once the bus broke down was non-existent, so we appreciate you bringing this up to our attention and will ensure that we improve if a similar situation arises in the future. Regarding the guide ignoring you after you expressed your intention of not purchasing activities offered, that it is completely unacceptable to us. Our guides are meant to improve the passenger's experience in any and every way possible whether they decide to purchase extra activities or not. We appreciate you bringing this issue up to our attention and will work with the guide in question to ensure better service in the future. Thanks for traveling with us!

The bus trip to the Keys was good and our tour guide was nice, we found out half way to the keys that the snorkel trip we had previously booked was cancelled. However previous to making the booking we had asked if we would get a full refund and we were told we would. We then booked to go on a trolley tour as that was the only other activity running that day except jet-skiing. The trolley tour was lovely and our guide was brilliant but was extremely over priced at $45. The paint also smudged off the side of the trolley and on to my friends clothing which left a green stain. We then got back only to discover that we would only get a $29 refund each for the snorkeling even though the cancellation was not on our part, we were told we would get a full refund, and the price difference between a booking for only a bus and a booking for a bus and snorkel was $70 difference each before tax. Feeling very frustrated and ripped off that we didn’t even get half of the money back that we should have gotten. The trip definitely was not worth the almost $400 we ended up spending! My recommendation is definitely don’t book ANY extra activity before you get on the bus or they will rip you off. You do get the option once on the bus to add join any activity booking, however bring cash as it is cheaper that way. Also I suggest to tour the area on your own in a golf cart or a bike instead of paying the over priced amounts for a trolley tour. And only go if the weather is 100% fine if you are planning on doing any water activities. We managed to arrive back to the hotel by about 10pm in Miami which was lovely. Such a bummer that an alright day had to be spoilt by the cost of activities and lack of refunds. I’m sure if it was a fine day and this cancelling of stuff didn’t occur then it would be a much higher rating.

My friends and I spent about 5 hours on a bus that smelt like straight pee! there were chairs that couldn't even sit upright and we're completely laid back down after we got there we were supposed to go on a catamaran and go snorkeling. we take a our boat ride out then we get there we can't go snorkeling because there's lightning and thunder 12 miles away. We take the hour back then they expect everybody to stand in line and get a refund in the hot ass sun it was like a 100 plus degrees. then we have to take the same bus back. We wasted a whole day of our vacation on this BS to only get back 80 of the 200 we spent. So basically we paid 120 to ride on a bus that smelt like pee for 10 plus hours. Like most ppl we were paying for a hotel in Miami. So in total we were out 560 dollars 360 for the bus ride for 3 of us and the 200 I paid for a hotel that we could of enjoyed more then this horrible experience.

The viaotor app that was used to purchase our tickets was malfunctioning and we had to call to get access to our ticket. Our bus was late and the bus driver was very heavy of the brakes and made for a really choppy ride. The bus is an old model and our guide told us that we could use the restroom on the bus, but not to put the tissue in the toilet. Almost the entire ride, the guide was constantly trying to upsell us into buying more attraction tickets and took a lot away from the experience. We also had the misfortune of sitting next to a group of very loud and rude women that only made the ride more annoying than peaceful and informative. Use the bus for the ride only and do the rest on your own.

I am not sure what happened on our tour, but the guide seemed very unorganized. We purchased Trolley passes in cash on the bus on way to Key West and he gave them away to someone else. He ended up purchasing passes for us out of his own pocket which was nice but got the times wrong for the members of our party to parasail. With the screw-up in times, we never got to use the Trolley passes. Of course, we paid in cash so no recourse.

Need to call or email after booking to confirm pick up time .

On the day of our trip. Our bus delayed for an hour due to bus broken on the way of pick up and they changed bus. We were told to wait couple minutes in front of hotel but we ended up waited for a whole hour.

Although the bus driver tried the best to get us there on time,but we were so rushed and only gets little time for breakfast stop. They required minimum tips of 5 dollars for each person (we understand that and appreciated the driver hard work)but beware that was not included in the cost. The tutor was not aware of the trip purchased through here and have to call back to confirm we paid online.

We booked trip with hoop on/off trolley service but some people booked trip with snorkeling or glass boats and there activities got canceled because of the annual boat race in key west and no water activities allowed, and they were offering them for partial refund. They should have notice the other first before they sold the ticket.

Besides all that we had a great time in key west and it worth for visit.

Hello, thank you very much for sharing your opinion so I will have the opportunity to explain some things. When you make the reservation, you have the possibility to choose your hotel and if it is not on the list, write yours, then we will look for the best pick-up option for you, the closest one. We pick up at many hotels in Miami Beach, several in Miami Downtown, and in the airport area, we have the Regency Hotel, which is the last one at 7:30 AM. As for the bus, it is true that it had a problem during the pick-up of passengers in the early morning, and it can happen, the good thing is that it could be solved quite quickly by putting another bus immediately, and since it left a little later from Miami, Also the departure from Key West was also later, since the 6 hours free on the island, are ALWAYS respected. As for the suspended water activities, it is not something for which our company has responsibility since the BOAT SHOW was taking place in Key West and the company providing the activities could not navigate and use the port during the tour hours. Passengers were previously notified via telephone or by email, but the system does not allow the partial refund to be made until the day the service is provided. Last but not least, in his opinion, you had a "great time" in Key West and it is worth visiting. Thank you very much to take your valuable time to share your opinion to keep improving our service.

Our guide, David, was great. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help. I would give him 5 stars. However, we had several issues with this trip. The bus was old and very uncomfortable. My seatbelt was broken as was my foot rest. The windows were filthy, especially the window by our seats. It had a white film on it like soap that had dried on and hadn't been washed off. We asked if it was possible to have the window cleaned so that we could see out the window. It never got cleaned. This is a very scenic trip, yet we were unable to enjoy it because the windows were so dirty. We also ended up in the last two seats on the bus so we didn't have a view on the right side because of the restroom. Our guide offered to move people so we wouldn't have to sit there, but we didn't want to inconvenience anyone. The issue was that there were several single riders who sat in seats and put their backpacks on the other seat. While I understand this, it seems that they need to figure out a way to seat single riders or odd numbered groups so that nobody has to sit in the last seats. Those seats don't recline, have a poor view, and on this bus, were broken. The young men in front of us reclined the seats the entire way, basically having their seat about 6 inches from our chests. Very uncomfortable. The other issue was that they didn't drop us off at our pick up spot. They picked us up at a hotel across from where we were staying, but they dropped us off about a half a mile away from our hotel. We assumed that they would be returning us to our original pick up spot. We were never informed that this was not the case. We had to walk back to our hotel which was difficult because i had an injured knee which made walking difficult. They said that they couldn't drop us off closer because of the trees on the street, but that wasn't the case at all. I think they just did it to save time. Key West was great, but the trip was disappointing. We were looking forward to having a nice bus ride to Key West and enjoying the scenery, but we were unable to do that. At the very least, they should make sure that the windows are cleaned and that the seatbelts and foot rests are in working order.

Thank you for your review. We do our best to keep the bus clean and in working order for all of our passengers, however, I can see that this wasn't the case for you. For this, we apologize and we will make sure that we inspect the coach better after washing. As far as the seats being broken, it is up to the passengers to inform us if things are malfunctioning otherwise we have no way of knowing what needs repair. We thank you for the information and will make sure the repairs are completed. Our sitting works on a first come first serve basis, however, solo passengers should not be taking up two seats. You did mention that the driver offered to have some of them moved which would have opened up space for your party to seat in better seats. I am unsure where your pickup and dropoff location was, but during dropoff, we normally stay in Collins Ave so as to expedite the dropoff process and get everyone back in a timely manner. The drop off is normally within a block or two of the pickup location. We do our best to advise passengers that they are going to be dropped off at a different location so that there are no surprises at the end of the day. We do apologize if you were not informed of this.
