Cruise ship passengers filled up a lot of the trolleys and created long waits. Fans inside the trolley would be a great addition.

Tim made the 90 minute tour awesome!

I was a solo traveler and found that Key West is not like I've read about in Tim Dorsey novels. I drove down from Homestead in my rental car to find parking is expensive on KW but who cares. When I arrived I was glad that I had already bought my Hop On/Off ticket in case I need some sort of "safety net" rather than standing in the middle of the street getting attacked by chickens. After I had lunch at Sloppy Joe's, I walked a block to the Bus Stop # 3. I hopped on and the guide Tim was amazing. He was funny, knowledgeable and seemed to really like what he does. The full go round is 90 mins. You can hop on and off at any of the many stops. I had a great time and saw so much more than I had if I would have been driving or walking. The only thing that worried me was not knowing if I would be able to get on the next bus or if it would be too crowded.

2 of the drivers were very funny and personable! The last driver, Tim, was not. His narration was like a recorded message and included a lot of info about him and his wife and there is our red car and this is where we live and on and on. It was also POURING down rain and Tim went through 2 stops before stopping to put down the plastic window guards. We were all getting drenched! But he just kept on talking. It wasn't until a couple make passengers got up and tried to get the guards down that he said he'd do it at the next stop. Which was still a bit away. It was awful. Especially for the over $100 price.

Trolley was 45 minutes late to bus stop and when it arrived the trolley was full with no seats available. Every trolley stop was the same way and we could not get on the trolley all day.

Our experience was not "Hop On - Hop Off".
Brian_S
, May 2022
Finding a trolley stop was not easy. I could not find a map of the route online. We were instructed to sign up online after finally finding a trolley stop and speaking with the driver. It took us over 1.5 hours to find another trolley, which wasn't packed with people, to finally board. The leg space in the seats was too narrow for me to sit without contorting sideways. The tour and information shared was fine. I would not recommend the trolley to a friend unless they had at least half a day to invest. We were in Key West for a day trip and felt like we wasted too much time trying to work out the trolley process. Not worth the money for our situation.
