Bad Experience
, Feb 2020
We signed up for a hop on hop off tour of Key West through Viator & the confirmation I printed out gave us an address where we were supposed to show our printed information but it said we wouldn’t be given any tickets but it was just a preliminary to check in. We walked several blocks to the address we were given and there was a sign on the door that said they were closed. There was a tourist stand nearby where you could sign up for tours and the clerk there was kind enough to convert our printed form into hop on hop off tickets for Old Towne Trolley. I felt like we were on a wild goose chase trying to find where to redeem our voucher that we had printed out. We have toured other cities using Viator to get our tickets in the past and never had any trouble. Because of running around trying to find where to redeem our voucher we had limited time and on the hop on hop off we just stayed on so we could see Key West. We had to be back on the ship by 1 o’clock and it did not allow us to get off any place to look around. After this we will go right to the actual trolley company and get our tickets.

I'm very glad I decided to book the Key West Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour. We saw all the sights we wanted to see, Jumped off anytime we wanted, and then caught the next trolley. The drivers were entertaining, informative and made our short visit all the more enjoyable. I would definitely book them again on our next vacation to Key West. Our visit was only eight hours and then it was back to the ship. We were able to see more of Key West then we could have if we were using taxis and maps. When we found the restaurant we want to stop to have lunch, we simply jumped off at the next stop and walked a block or two and enjoyed. Then we joined the tour to the next fascinating stop. If you're planning to explore Key West, don't mess around with maps, taxies, mopeds or bicycles. Book with these folks and really have a good time. :D -Mike L. Auburndale, Fl.

We had a great driver on our first ride on the Hop-On bus. Our second driver was not as good and we missed the stop we wanted to get off at. Overall the Hop-On buses we have taken have met or exceeded our expectations.

The location of the tickets stand was a little hard to find. Otherwise, had a great time in key west with this shore excursion. It took my group to the main spots including a restaurant for key lime pie which was delicious. A perfect way to see Key West. I was particular impressed by the driver's commentary and support for wheel chair users. Overall, great value for money!.

The guide was very entertaining and gave us great information about Key West. We were limited on time, and chose to do the whole loop in one sitting. There were places we wished we could get off to see more closely. If this is your first time in Key West, I highly recommend taking this tour to get a good overview of the city.

, May 2016
The driver/guide seemed most interested in getting back to the cruise port ASAP so the company could pick up as many more paying customers as possible he kept saying there are three cruise ships in port today. Thus he talked non-stop, never permitting any questions from the paying customers. The stops were all to pick up other paying customers, and were several blocks from points of interest which the driver would vaguely point at. Have been on lots of hop-on/hop-off buses world wide, and this was the worst.
