This trip from Fort Lauderdale to Key West begins with a 4-hour bus journey through the southernmost tip of Florida. There will be a quick stop in Miami to pick up more passengers; otherwise, enjoy this scenic adventure that includes a trek across some 42 bridges, including the famous Seven Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys.

Upon arrival in the beautiful island city of Key West, there will be approximately six hours to tour and explore some of the best attractions. Visit popular sites like Mallory Square, where everyone comes to hang out. Be sure to make a stop at the popular Hog’s Breath Saloon for a bite and/or beverage.

There are also the attractions near the historic seaport area, like the West Martello Fort and the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum. There’s the Southernmost Point with the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. There’s also the Ernest Hemingway House and Museum and Bahama Village Market, plus Key West Aquarium and Key West Shipwreck Treasures Museum, to name just a few.

If wandering isn’t of interest, choose from a number of tour upgrades to spice things up. The 90-minute Conch Tour Train is a great introduction to everything Key West has to offer. Or board the Old Town Trolley for a hop-on hop-off tour that includes live commentary from an expert guide who knows the city inside and out. It’s a great way for newcomers to experience the entire island. Hop off at any of the attractions for a closer look, then hop back on when it’s convenient.

There’s a 3-hour snorkeling cruise to the Florida Reef, the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States. Discover the underwater plant and marine life in warm, tropical waters aboard a catamaran vessel. Snorkeling equipment and beverages included. Another way to see the Florida Reef and its many aquatic inhabitants is on a glass-bottom boat cruise. Or get a bird’s eye view from above the blue waters on a parasailing adventure.

There’s something for everyone, with a variety of ways to see it all, on the historic island city of Key West.

Wasn't what I expected

The keys it's was beautiful. The bus had alot of broken seats and air vents which made the ride extremely uncomfortable. Our tour guild spoke both English and Spanish, but it was very hard to understand him. I don't recommend doing it on your last day. Also feel miami should have one drop off point like fort lauderdale had. If your in fort lauderdale plan for an extra $50 for taxi or Uber to and from drop off point.

The bus ride was awful but our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining. Key west was marvelous. We chose to do the snorkeling. The experience was wonderful, but we were not informed of the jellyfish until the day of the trip. A person during our tour was stung. Worrying about being stung by the overwhelming amount of jellyfish took away from the wonderful expirience.

Snorkeling

We were forced to drive to Miami as there was no parking at the pick up location in Fort Lauderdale. Upon arrival of the bus the tour director did not even welcome us to the bus. Once there we walked to the pier with instruction or direction of where we were going. After walking all the way there and then she said we had an hour before the snorkling trip. Snorkeling was a great trip and we would recommend this in normal times. They over booked the trip for social distancing and were negligent in that respect. When we got back on the bus there was a terrible odor from the chemical toilet on the bus. The fumes were nauseating. Marlene, our tour director, then began to ask for tips for the driver of 10%! The driver never said a word to us, not even a hello or goodbye.

This was basically a ride to Key West. We arrived from Ft Lauderdale, and entered a full bus. Could no sit together. Bus was ok but trip commentary was just ok and stop for breakfast was a waste of time. And as others have said, you have many stops in Miami before you get back to Ft Lauderdale. Maybe try an Uber for a similar cost.

Beware!

The tour leaves from Miami so a shuttle van picked us up at the Fort Lauderdale airport/hotel and drove us to Miami. There were 6 of us waiting for the motorcoach at a Miami hotel. Several coaches made pick ups here. We waited 2 hours and several phone calls before the same shuttle driver picked all 6 of us up and drove us to where the motorcoach had stopped for breakfast. We were not allowed time to have breakfast! The tour leader, Tamara, was rude and did not share any information with the 6 of us. She is not a good leader as we found out during the tour. Some of us thought Grey line was the tour operator, others had another company. I would not recommend this program. We made the best of the 5 hours in Key West which was fine. The 19 hours of travel there and back wasn't worth the aggravation! The tour operator did not even apologize for their error: change in hotel name, Tamara forgetting to make the pick up stop, no time for breakfast, late arrival back in Miami and 18 hotel stops before bringing the 6 Fort Lauderdale passengers back to the hotel drop off after midnight where we all had to make transportation arrangements to our personal destinations!

Trip itself was good, transport was not

The trip itself was great, we loved being in Key West and the 6 hours there allowed for the perfect amount of time to explore the city. The locals were amazing and the day trip options were so fun! Unfortunately, if you are traveling from Fort Lauderdale the trip back will be a nightmare. We Arrived in Miami around 9:30 to drop off the Miami passagers, which would have allowed us to get back to FLL at the expected time of 10 PM. Much to our surprise, we stopped at every hotel/pizza shop/boutique/street corner requested by the Miami riders. Sometimes stopping multiple times on the same block. We had to have made over 25 stops in Miami and didn’t get back to FLL until almost midnight. It was pretty unorganized and not sure why there wasn’t one centralized drop off/pick up spot like there was is Fort Lauderdale. It seemed excessive to stop at every request and was very frustrating for the FLL travelers who still had to get rides home after being dropped off at their centralized location.
