This great Key West tour includes a scenic drive down the full length of the Florida Keys on the Overseas Highway and an afternoon in Key West with a trolley tour that makes exploring the island fun and easy. You can ride the open-air trolley around the island to over 100 points of interest in one non-stop tour or take advantage of hop-on, hop-off privileges at 13 designated trolley stops – perfect for enjoying the shopping, dining, history, and highlights of tropical Key West.
Get an early start from Miami aboard a luxury touring coach, with free shuttle service to the departure point from most hotels in Miami Beach and Downtown Miami. Ride down the world-famous Overseas Highway to see the sights of the Florida Keys in air-conditioned comfort with a professional driver at the wheel. Then tour the island in style from a breezy tropical trolley car and play the afternoon away in America’s Caribbean Paradise with no worries at all about driving, parking, or the evening return trip to Miami.
Check in for your tour around 7:15am then board the modern touring coach and settle in to a comfortable reclining seat. The coach departs Miami at 7:45am and runs down U.S. Highway 1 from the south Miami suburbs, across the Southern Everglades, and all the way down the Overseas Highway. This tour is an immersion in spectacular scenery for the entire 125 miles from Florida City on the tip of the Florida Peninsula to Key West, the last inhabited island in the Florida Keys.
Elevated seats and large panoramic windows on the coach are designed to help you enjoy the emerald ocean vistas, sandy coves, island resort towns, busy marinas, beautiful waterfront homes, and many other interesting sights the Keys have to offer. The Overseas Highway traverses 31 islands, and while you travel, a narrated guide presented in high-fidelity audio brings the natural and human history of the Florida Keys to life.
The coach crosses more than 40 bridges that span stretches of blue water between islands large and small. From Knights Key, on the southern tip of Marathon Key about 120 miles into the journey from Miami, the world-famous Seven Mile Bridge lifts the roadway above blue water. The Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Florida Straits on the other stretch to the horizon. This miracle of bridge engineering skill was one of the longest bridges in the world when it was finished in 1982. Speeding along the Seven Mile Bridge offers ocean vistas so dramatic that the bridge has been the setting for chase scenes in action movies like True Lies and two of the "Fast & Furious" films.
After a 6.79-mile-long crossing that will give you the thrilling sensation of flying low over the sparkling waves, the southwest end of the Seven Mile Bridge reconnects with land on tiny Little Duck Key. The beautiful State Park at Bahia Honda Key comes up in minutes. It’s the gateway to the Lower Keys and an entirely different world. Small villages, sportfishing marinas, winding channels, shallow, white sand-bottomed bays, and miles of undeveloped tropical bushland takes you into the exotic Caribbean even though Miami lies only a few hours north by road. It’s truly a marine wonderland, and from here, it is a short ride to Key West, America’s only Caribbean island paradise.
The coach arrives in historic Old Town Key West almost exactly at noon. You can explore the shops and restaurants in the waterfront district, walk a few blocks and grab lunch and a beverage on Duval Street, or go to the nearby trolley stop and take off on an island trolly tour. Antique-style trolley cars are lots of fun for photos, modern amenities make for comfortable touring, and open-air sides bring on the tropical feel while giving you unobstructed views all around. Hop on and off privileges mean you are free to linger at attractions like Duval Street, the Southernmost Point, Mallory Square, the Ernest Hemingway House and much more, then simply catch the next trolley coming by.
