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.

What a wonderful tour. Kim was so knowledgeable and showed us all of the unique fun things of the lower keys like the deer, blue hole and the beautiful Bahia Honda State Park. She provided lots of history and fun facts and we simply had a wonderful morning.

Booked this sightseeing adventure when we visited on a cruise ship. We were greeted just outside the ship. We traveled in a comfortable air conditioned van.Kim is a very knowledgeable guide and answered all our questions. 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.

We decided to take a half-day tour of the lower Keys during our stay in KW. From the moment of our online reservation booking and to the return drop-off, our driver/guide Kim was so professional. She was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the Keys and southern FL. Throughout the tour, she was able to inject personal vignettes, which made the tour even more enjoyable. Stops included the Blue Hole, Bahia Honda, Key Deer WR, and more.

I would definitely recommend taking a Keys tour with Up the Keys! and Kim.

This is a good tour to get history and information of the keys and the sights are awesome. Kim does an amazing job and you can tell she enjoys it.

I was picked up right at my hotel. Was a great tour to get away from Key West and see some of the other keys. Kim was very informative. We got pretty lucky at the blue hole, seeing many different fish and animals that inhabit it, and then even more lucky seeing several key deer on Big Pine Key. Nice way to spend half a day.

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.
