    Great guide. 6 hours is enough to visit the main attractions of the city. Nice views of the different keys during traveling.

    Breakfast stop was too rushed - need at least 45 minutes rather than 30 minutes for a bus load to do a bathroom break and buy and eat

    The bus stopped for 1/2 hour break to get Cuban food and coffee. However the speakers did not work in the back of the bus at all and we could not hear the tour agent. I told the tour agent to fix the speakers so the customers could enjoy anh understand what was going.

    This tour offers either merely transport to Key West and in cases some more activities upon additional cost. We took only the transport and there were serious issues. Once we get to Key West it was just great. However we got there 1.5h late since before we even left Miami the but broke down and a replacement but has to be found. First we were told it will take 35min but after 30min we were told we should take breakfast in the area as it will take much longer. When we realized it is more than an hour some of the passengers asked to cancel and receive refund. The guide told them it is not her responsibility and offered to give us a phone number so we should call and check - REALLY? In principle, it is the company responsibility to issue a bus that was checked earlier for its condition. It is a 3.5 h drive and the fact that it broke in Miami indicates that it was not properly examined prior to leaving the garage. It should become a common practice! Eventually, we reached Key West and 1.5h later without a stop on the way and we tour the area independently. In this regard, we get 6.5h to tour the place. Key West is an outstanding place and is highly recommended to visit but try to get there by other means.

    I like the routine of snorkel, but the bus break down in the morning and it took 1.5hour to move on.Besides when I have some misunderstanding, I have no idea who to contact.I send messages and have a phone call to every contacts there’s no response for 30min as I need the help.When I finally and having a call with the customer service she had a really terrible attitude.I have an argument with her basically.In conclusion I like the routine but the way you deal with problems is terrible.

    This trip was wonderful. The bus guides were so very helpful and always asking if everyone was ok! Key west was beautiful and so much fun!

    Long day trip with lots of driving to get to Key West. We got 5 hours in Key West which was enough to see all the sights. Would recommend as less hassle and cost than organising car hire.

  • 04-Nov-2022

    Safe, efficient driving. Good stories on board. Close pick-up and drop off. Plenty of time in Key West. Took trolley, ate leisurely lunch, shopped and walked all over.

  • 03-Nov-2022

    When signing up for the trip it said it would be a no stop bus, was surprised when we stopped at a gas station for over 30 minutes. The 3 1/2 trip ended up taking us 5 hours so our time in the keys were cut short. Then at the end Guide was shaming people once they got off the bus if they didn’t tip.

    Difficult to find the central bus station for a non Miami person! If you had said directly opposite the Holiday Inn I would have found it very easily and I would not have been running around like a headless chicken asking people where the central station is. There were no flags just flag poles. The trip was great until the bus broke down! Arrived back after midnight; the new bus did not take me to Brickell and dropped me off at the Bayview station and I am from the UK and the Loop which I used to get to the Bayview area was closed. I do not have a US SIM and it cost me a lot of money to get a taxi. Compensation is required! I got back to my hotel at 1:35 am and that is unacceptable.
