Start your day with a pickup from your Miami or Miami Beach hotel, and relax as you travel south to Key West by bus. 

The scenic journey follows a route across more than 40 bridges including the Seven Mile Bridge, setting for many a movie scene including True Lies, License to Kill, 2 Fast 2 Furious and more. Hop between islands, and then arrive in Key West where a laid-back, Caribbean vibe awaits.

The time is your own here to do whatever you want. Enjoy roughly six hours of free time and check out attractions such as Hemingway House where Ernest Hemingway lived on the island. Or take a stroll through Mallory Square; it’s right on the waterfront in the historic Old Town of Key West.

If you want to maximize your time on the island, select one of these upgrade options and enjoy your activity when you arrive.

Key West and Conch Train:Ride an open-air conch train around Key West, and learn about the island as you go. Listen to narration about the sights as you meander through Key West’s Old Town.

Key West and Trolley Tour:Enjoy a hop-on hop-off tour by trolley, and see the sights of Key West. It’s a great way to explore and sightsee at your own pace.

Key West and Snorkel Cruise:Jump aboard a catamaran for a 3-hour snorkel expedition to a nearby coral reef. Equipment is provided as are non-alcoholic drinks.

Key West and Glass-Bottom Boat Cruise:Cruise out from land to see one of the world’s largest reefs, home to an abundant array of tropical fish and marine life.

Key West and Parasailing:Gaze down at Key West as you glide above the water from a modern parasail boat. Single and tandem rides are available, but participants must be older than six years of age.

Wonderful Experience!
Chrisanne_E
, Aug 2022
From beginning to end, I really enjoyed myself. The tour bus was beautiful and spacious. They came on time, picking up other passengers and it was smooth. The tour guide did a great job explaining everything, and he had a great sense of humor. I'm glad he cracked a few jokes because that is what make things more fun. The driver did a wonderful job as well. The excursion I did, the snorkeling, was fun as well. I was a little scared at first. We went to the gulf on Mexico to snorkel which was cool. The water was a little choppy, so it got a little difficult for me. Overall this was a great experience! I recommend!

Definatly regretted the trip
Pawel_S
, Aug 2022
Was told to be on the doorsteps of our hotel and the bus will pick us up thebus came from opposite side of the street (very little inconvenient and would not downgrade my ride at all if that was the only issue. -The pit stop that the guide and driver decided to stop at was a joke, don't know who gets the kick back from the gas station but when you have a double decker bus and you stop at a Dinky single restroom, you know your going to have issues. (If you plan to make a stop pick a bigger more organized stop) -Into our drive about a 1/3 of the way thr AC broke, we mentioned it and was waved off by the tour guide. And about 30in later we pulled over so the driver can "reset the unit". (Wasted another 15-20 min) FYI- didn't repair anything. - we drove another 10 min and stopped again to off load part of the bus onto another bus due to the AC not working. -we had constant rambling coming from the vents the entire ride there and back (visibly missing screws that held the vent securely to the bus.) -The drive from Miami to Key West took us over 6 hours! Let that sink in, 6 hours drive!!!!! -Top it all off the bathroom on the bus did not work and the toilet was flooded which cased an awful smell near it. The whole drive down and tour was a total cluster mess with the guild not even allowing us to use the bathroom when we got off at our destination before moving people who bought tickets from him for activities. He was rude and was more helpful to the Hispanic group members then to others. PLEASE DO NOT SEND BUSSES THAT ARE NOT OPERATING AT 100% CAPACITY. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Parasailing was wonderful and it’s crew..but Our tour guide aAntonio was not good . The bus was late didn’t pick us in front of our hotel. Then we bought the trolley tour from him never give us back our change nor say thanks . While In the bus he just drop the map on my lap. We have to wait cause he drop one by one of us to our different activities .at the end of course they need tips in-spite of this bad experience we still give them good tip since I know they work hard. But at least do something better especially like us who are new visiting .

Vulgar and inappropriate language not addressed- Guide inpatient with non Spanish speakers
Ethel_W
, Jul 2022
The booking was easy and the Grey Line person that I called to confirm our pick up was also very helpful. The pick up at our hotel was timely and the first bus we took to get on the second bus was a good experience. The trip TO Key West was also mostly good. The problem came in once we got to Key West and on the way back. We traveled on 7/22/22. The tour guide on the bus spoke in English and Spanish and really spoke more in Spanish so it was sometimes hard to understand what he was saying and his instructions as an English speaker. When we got off the bus, he had everyone follow him around and would not answer our direct questions. Because some people purchased their tickets from him, he had to go get tickets for them once we stopped and also get wristbands for those people, All the while, because we had already done everything on line, he had us following him around the island as he cared for the people who purchased with him and not answering our questions for the people who purchased online. He totally wasted about 45 minutes of our day while we followed him around for nothing. At one point a young lady asked him for clearer directions and he got upset and frustrated and responded to her in a very aggravated tone. She was simply just trying to understand the directions. The other and most concerning issue we had was that on the way home there were a group of drunk guys who were loud and used vulgar and inappropriate language the whole trip back and the tour guide did nothing. There were woman and children on the bus and the behaviors was totally disrespectful. Towards the end of the trip they started playing loud and inappropriate music. We were so uncomfortable, we ended up getting off the bus at the very first drop off point and caught an Uber the rest of the way back to our hotel. I would never take this ride again.

A Cold Trip!!
Roslyn_M
, Jul 2022
Overall the trip was okay. The bus was a bit too crowded and had 2 sets of chairs facing each other with no leg room. Which is stupid if you do not know the people. The air was a bit cold for the long trip. But the driver did an awesome job of safely taking us to & fro with his driving. However I felt the tour guide was a bit short w/people once we arrived in Key West. I felt he waisted time for those who were just doing the glass bottom boat having to follow him around. Only to be pointed in the direction of where to get the boat. Especially if you already paid for it. The glass bottom boat experience was awesome as was the crew. Best part of the trip. Outside of the boat experience we could not do much else in Key West because of the time waisted with the tour guide. At least an hour waisted.

Viator terrible customer service
David_D
, Jul 2022
While me and my girlfriend enjoyed our day trip to Key West, unfortunately our glass bottom boat tour was cancelled due to weather. While disappointing , these things happen. My issues start when I have tried to get a refund from viator. They have terrible customer service and are trying to refund me an incorrect lessor amount and giving me the run around when I call their customer service line. Everyone else in our group also got cancelled so I hope they are not getting screwed over as well. Hire some more professional call staff and don’t make me spend hours on hold and with calls/emails to be made whole.
