The narrator was obnoxious. Spoke about people in tHe streets rudely. I certainly didn’t need to hear about his townhome as much as I did. More history and less BS would have been good.

Great way to get around town and decide where you want to go explore or go back to.... would like to have had a few more stops - but wearing a mask on the train is just ridiculous - you’re sitting with your own group and you’re outside.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Key West still has a mask mandate and we are required to observe it.
