the bud was late in the morning but it was super fine. the drive was very good we slept and only woke up to the scenic bits. we didn't feel like there was enough hours there in the day to explore! so much to see! everyone was so friendly would recomend spending the night there if possible. very charming town we bought activities such as the key west train separately with get your guide so was cheaper. definitely bring physical money to tip ! the beach was amaizing. we took uber to the places the train didn't stop at but if u can rent a golf kart I think would be good or bikes. plenty of bars with music we had the best homemade Italian ice cream as well- absolutely lush. the drive back was peaceful but the toilet on the bus was unkempt but this is to be expected so bring your own toilet roll and spray

It is a cool boat ride to begin with. The glass bottom revels several levels of the reef community that can not be seen any other way (besides getting in the water itself).

Incredible and fascinating story of the first train from Miami to Key West! The man behind it was quite someone. Loved the little documentary too!

The tour was on time, the driver was very nice, beautiful way. Key West is very spacial. I loved it.

Long ride down but better than driving ourselves and cheap for the distance
