Whether it's your first time in Key West or your fifth, you'll discover something new on this Key West cruise port trip. The tour provides a comprehensive overview of the area that fits into even the tightest of schedules. Hop on and off to explore the attractions that interest you on this flexible tour on the charming Conch Train.
Your Key West journey starts at the famous Mallory Squaure. Stop along Front Street, close to the Key West Shipwreck Treasures Museum and the Key West Aquarium, Truman's Little White House, themed retail shops, and the best conch fritters on the island. Sloppy Joe's, Ernest Hemingway's favorite bar, is also nearby, so you can grab a cold one after the tour.
Then you'll make a stop at the Conch Tour Train Station, where you can buy souvenirs at the gift shop for your memorable tour around Key West. Hop off here to explore Duval Street, a lively street full of interesting shops and people. You never know what you'll see here!
Next, stop at Truval Village. Here, you'll find yourself just steps away from the Southernmost Point in the continental United States as well as South Beach, one of the best beaches in town! Other highlights here include the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, the Hemingway Home and Museum, the Key West Lighthouse and the many art galleries that are found on upper Duval Street. There's something for everyone!
Once you get back on the train, you'll make your way to the next stop: the Historic Seaport district. The biggest attraction here is the Flagler Railway Museum, which tells you the tale of the famous railroad that connects Key West with Mainland Florida. You'll also find out more about the central figure behind it: Henry Flagler. History buffs in particular will enjoy this attraction.
Finally, you'll make your way back to Mallory Square and then walk to the final stop on this tour: the Truman Little White House. Named after the former President of the United States, the venue was Truman's place of rest and relaxation when he visited Key West. Although other presidents have visited the site, Truman was the one who considered Key West his second home. Tours of the Little White House run every 20 minutes.
Please Note: The Conch Train runs every 30 minutes from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. It takes approximately 90 minutes to make one full loop. The Harry S. Truman Little White House operates from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

We enjoyed our tour very much. We loved the Truman Whitehouse Tour. It was just the right length and our guide provided great information. It was a little difficult to find. There could have been better signage. It would have been nice to stop for pictures at the southernmost point of the US. I would recommend the tour to anyone.
was hard finding where I needed to go. Asked several times and nobody seemed to know where I needed to go. Once I found where I needed to be it was an excellent time.
We were traveling with relatives who spend two months in the Florida Keys and are frequent visitors to Key West; they enjoyed the Conch Train as much as we did. As a pre baby boomer I found the Truman White House very educational and a reminder of how different things were 60+ years ago.
Had a good time saw many thing. Enjoyed it
Had to walk my way to Hemmingways place and then walk to fine the bytterfly place.I was kind of nervous about that. But all ended well.
