Good option for a quick day trip to Key West from Miami. Bus was on time for pick up. Bus was an older model some chairs were broken and the back of the bus reeked of urine but overall a comfortable ride. The breakfast stop was brief but allowed time for everyone on the bus to get a quick bite and bathroom break. Be sure to bring cash as the restaurant they take you too only accepts cash. Snorkeling trip was lots of fun. Unfortunately the water was a little cloudy but fishes were still visible. We were warned beforehand of the low visibility and a refund was offered if desired. After snorkeling we were advised to eat since we would not be making any stops on our way back to Miami. Plenty of dinning options. Lilly our guide provided us with all the information we needed and made sure we all made it back.

The bus was on time. Large, comfortable bus with USB sockets and toilets. However, for those who are astride the barrier gestures, contrary to what is planned, there is no temperature measurement or distance planned in the bus, and people are allowed in without a mask ... The journey is pleasant, the guide is very professional. Only downside: we are sold options on the bus (tram tour in particular) supposedly cheaper than on site, which is not true, since they are even more expensive than if we had bought them separately on their own site. . Unpleasant feeling of having been fooled. The tram tour is expensive for a visit of little interest. Better to rent a bike on site.

Organized and on time.

Enjoyed the trip the guide was on time for pickup both at the hotel and in Key West the driver was very safe. Only part about booking this trip that I didn't like is no one allows you to know which hotels pick up is from they only state they pick up from beachside hotels my hotel was beach area however not a designated pick-up hotel the hotel that was my designated stop was about 10 minutes away and they charge $20 to park. Had I known the pacific hotels I would have booked directly at one of them. Other than that the trip was perfect the weather was perfect and I enjoyed myself.
