The Key West Historic Homes and Designs tour was one of the most enjoyable that my husband and I took on our recent visit to Key West. Our tour guide, Richard, was a local man with extensive experience in the travel industry. His insights into the area's history, it's architecture and homes made for a memorable day. I highly recommend.

Our tour guide Richard was local and his knowledge of the island, architecture and history was outstanding! We could have listened to him all day. It was clear he loves sharing all that he knows and very articulate. Do not miss this walking tour and try to book at the beginning of your stay. You’ll be happy you did!
