Seeing the Keys

Kim was very friendly and made you feel so comfortable. She was extremely informative and went out of her to show as much as she could. We learned so much info from Kim. I wouldn't hesitate to this excursion again or any others she has.

Nice intro to the lower keys
Susan_H
, Jun 2021
We were picked up promptly at our hotel door. Our tour guide was very friendly and provided good info on what we were seeing along the way. Even made a coffee stop at at a cute place along the way as we were the only ones on the tour. We saw many key deer, peacocks and an alligator! The disappointment was we were unable to go to Bahia Honda park which is the highlight of the tour. It was Sunday just after 10 am on memorial weekend.There was a long line of cars and our van was met by a park employee and told they were at capacity and it would be an hour. Instead our guide drove us over the 7 mile bridge which is scenic and we made a brief stop at a small beach to wade into the bay. On the way back, still a line at bahia honda. I'm not sure of the logistics of tour planning and assume this was a fluke of the current reopening times, however it was disappointing. All in all a nice drive up the lower keys.

Thank you for your time to write a review. We are experiencing record numbers of visitors to the Keys due to the pandemic and we have adjusted our tour plans accordingly to visit Bahia Honda as our first tour stop. With Memorial Day weekend being widely regarded as a beach weekend, Bahia Honda did indeed fill up early and earlier than we have ever seen due to the extraordinary number of visitors to the Keys right now. Our guide tried to get you in the park by making it the first stop after your coffee stop and then he added the 7-Mile Bridge experience, which we believe was a good substitute. Bahia Honda is a government-run State Park, so we cannot receive “special treatment” at the gate. It is unfortunate that you were not able to enter the park. Please let us know when you are returning to the Keys and we will try to make it up to you. Thanks again for your time. -Kim

Great chance to see the Lower Keys beyond Key West

, Apr 2021
The tour, led by Indy, was very informative, relaxing and a lot of fun. Indy was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of information on the lower keys and Key West. We also saw beautiful beaches at the Bahia Honda State Park and got a chance to get up close with deer and (not too close but a good view of an) alligator. As a special bonus Indy drove us on the 7 mile highway.

She supplied water and a snack as well.we learned lots of info about the keys, wildlife, and the railroads. I would recommend for all age groups.

I highly recommend this tour. Kim did an excellent job! She is extremely knowledgeable, and very personable. Well worth the money if you want to learn about the Keys and experience first hand seeing some of the natural inhabitants in the wild.

This was a fun way to get out and learn about the area and not just Key West. We did see some deer, which are hard to find in the jungle like undergrowth, and we did learn a bunch about the culture and history of the Conch Republic lol.
