Our family enjoyed the trolley ride around Key West. The drivers were all very knowledgeable and being able to hope on and off was nice too. We got off to experience the butterfly conservatory which the kids loved. At that stop we also took a family picture by the southern most point of the US. We jumped off two more times once for a brewery for my husband and then once for Margaritaville for me. Overall it was a good excretion for the whole family!
The trolley ride is included with the package, and that's worth the price of admission alone. My kids are 6 and 3, and they were free. The driver gives a history lesson on points of interest as you pass by. Very entertaining! The butterfly conservatory is pleasant with a diverse collection of species of butterfly -- and birds as well. The kids especially loved observing the caterpillars and the various stages of metamorphosis on display. Highly recommended. A great value!
The trolley driver was great fun. The route got us to all the places that we wanted to visit. Our time there was relatively short, so now we want to go back and are more aware of what we want to explore more.

The wife and I were very happy with the city view trolley excursion. It was a great deal. The butterfly conservatory was very beautiful.

The trolley tour was not bad. As we jumped on and off and different stops some of the trolley operators were far better than others. The great ones gave some great historical information and made some nice lengthy stops. The butterfly museum was nice (if you're into butterflies). If not bypass and do the rest.

This was an easy and inexpensive way to see Key West. We took the trolley from the nearby cruise ship stop to the farthest point on their route which was the butterfly conservatory, and walked part of the way back so that we could enjoy the shops on Duvall Street. The Butterfly Conservatory is great for kids too and they have a wonderful gift shop.

Boarding the trolley was simple, as they leave from each of the 16 stops every 15-20 minutes, and it was a short walk from the pier. We got off at the ECO Museum which was free and very nice and then thoroughly enjoyed the Butterfly Conservatory - the nicest one I've seen. They had lots of butterflies, along with some flamingos and turtles. There were places to sit and cool air being piped in around the space. The gift shop was really nice as well. We didn't have as much time in Key West as we had planned, so we couldn't get off any many more stops, because all passengers had to go through immigration before disembarking, since we came from the Bahamas. But, I would take this excursion again when returning to Key West.
The city view trolley with butterfly conservatory was a wonderful and informative event and would recommend it and will do it again if we get back to Key West

Trolly was enjoyable, butterfly was OK and somewhat small and forgettable. Generally fun just to walk around the neighborhoods including the Truman presidentialy compound.

A good way to get around Key West. The narration was a little corny but the driver was friendly and helpful. The highlight was our stop at the Butterfly Conservancy. We could have spent more time there but wanted to tour the Hemingway House and Truman's House too. They were great too. Admission was expensive, though.

My mom, daughter and I really enjoyed the Trolley ride. The Butterfly conservatory was interesting. Depending on who your driver is makes a big difference on the Trolley experience. Our first driver made the ride fun. He spoke loudley and did not talk like he was reading from a script. He was engaging with the passengers and answered questions. When we got back on the Trolley after seeing the Butterfly Conservatory, we had a different driver. He was not as interesting as the first driver.
The butterfly conservatory was awesome experience. Lots of variety of butterflies in a beautifil treed area.Very calming. The trolley allowed us to see other sights in the area.

We took the grandkids ages 6 and 9. They enjoyed it very much, and the tour kept their attention. They especially liked the butterfly conservancy.
Loved the trolly ride, hop on and off. Recommend staying on the trolly in Key West to the end, then take the trolly to the places of interest. Butterfly Conservatory was an added bonus.
Very convenient for getting around town. Great drivers . Very helpful.
Enjoyed the Butterfly exhibit
Had a great visit in Key West.
I was very pleased with this excursion. It was easy to jump on and off the trolley and the Butterfly Conservatory was breathtaking A must see!
