Terrific indepth tour of the keys. Scott and wife are so very accommodating and Scott could explain so much about the area. Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel was the best...not to mention the lunch provided to the group.

Our group of four had a fantastic day. Scott went out of his way to ensure that every guest was enjoying the outing. We have been to Key West many times and were looking for something different. This was exactly that.

A great way to discover the islands, with a friendly atmosphere and engaging activities. Especially if you don't have a car or don't want to drive, it is really ideal.

Scott was awesome. We were here right after hurricane Ian. Scott kept us posted as to what was open and what was closed. We ended up move out tour back one day. The aquarium was great, I was able to feed the animals. While we were at the aquarium, Scot got lunch for us at subway! He was open to all kinds of questions and very knowledgeable. We had difficulty finding the the deer… but Scott didn’t give up until we found a couple. I would recommend this tour to everyone. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his professionalism! He made it fun! I’m so glad we did this tour!!

We highly recommend Up the Keys Tour! Scott and Maddie were in contact from the booking on making sure we knew about all the options available and that we were signed up for what we wanted. Maddie was our tour guide. She picked us up at our rental condo and had so much information about the area and unique features of each of the keys we visited. She was flexible and helped us make last minute changes. The Aquarium Encounters were fabulous. My 30 something daughters and son-in-law loved the reef snorkel Encounter, the stingray Encounters and feeding the sharks. Lunch and plenty of snacks and water were provided. She even offered to make a coffee stop that morning. We saw key deer but didn't see any gators at Blue Hole on the way to Marathon but she stopped back by on the way home and we saw more deer including a fawn and an alligator! Our family of 6 were the only ones on the tour and Maddie made sure we were comfortable the whole time. She took plenty of family photos. I can't even list all the things we saw. Highly recommend this tour!

This tour was one of the best parts of our trip to Key West! Maddy was awesome and went out of her way to be sure we were comfortable and happy. We had 6 of us so we upgraded to the private tour and it was absolutely worth it! Absolutely recommend as a great way to see more of the Keys than just Key West!

Indy was informative, helpful, courteous and the best companion for this trip! We started at the Dolphin Research Center, did Big Pine key and the deer, the Blue Hoke, 7 Mile bridge and a walking tour of Key West all in one day. I had a fabulous time and learned so much!

Mr. Indy Holmes is a superb tour guide who provided my wife and me with a wonderful tour of the Florida Keys along the Overseas Highway. We particularly enjoyed the Dolphin Research Center and Bahia Honda State Park. We had a very nice picnic lunch at the Park, walked to the top of the old bridge, and then were able to walk in the water on the secluded beach side of the Park. Indy is a fun and knowledgeable tour guide who made our van trip up and down the Keys a lot of fun. We highly recommend this tour with Indy Holmes.

Kim is a fun and very knowledgeable tour guide. We were able to see and photograph numerous Key deer and she explained the threat to the endangered species due to hurricanes and loss of habitat. The aquarium was a fun place that lets you interact with the native sea life. We saw 2 alligators and other wildlife at Blue Hole. Lunch at Bahia Honda State Park and Beach offered a white sand beach with spectacular views of the 7 mile bridge. On the way back Kim gave us plenty of recommendations for things to do and good places to eat that were spot on.
