"The Tour also rises" - 5 stars!

Our tour guide Caleb was an aspiring local author himself, so the stories he told of Hemingway were rich with lore and mystic. Caleb also added a few non-Hemingway Key West facts along the way. The tour was a well worth adventure, the food at Kermits KW pies was fresh and tasty with dessert being their famous key lime pie. Concluding the trip at the original Sloppy Joes/Captain Tony's with a Priate Punch was a perfect ending.
Amazing, walking tour!

Loved all the history of Hemingway! The lunch was delicious, and the rum drink was amazing! The tour through the house was not included, but we paid and went anyway. Seeing things that the tour guide told us about on the walking tour. We also bought two of Hemingway‘s books at the bookstore on the Hemingway property. Super fun and we knew nothing about this gentleman before the tour ha ha ha. Our tour guide Caleb was the coolest and funnest guy ever! His knowledge
was the best! We would highly recommend this walking tour.
Fantastic!!!

Greg is the best guide I’ve ever had, very knowledgeable, hilarious and so polite and accommodating, he even gave my wife and I a ride after. He also gave me great recommendations for food and drinks on the island. My wife had no interest in Hemingway and Greg kept her entertained and she actually had a blast and learned a lot. Would recommend this tour for everyone, not just fans of Papa!

Our tour was great! The tour guide was awesome. It was educational and fun! We took many of his recommendations for food during our stay and they did not disappoint! He was very knowledgeable about key west and Ernest Hemingway! Highly recommend this tour! Best key lime pie I’ve ever had!
Great tour for both Hemingway history and Key West History

Highly recommend this tour. Mark was very knowledgeable, friendly and made the history very interesting. We enjoyed that he wove Hemingway history in with the history of the island. Enjoyed the food provided. My husband liked the tour so much that he wanted to do the Buffet tour but unfortunately we didn’t have time left on our visit. Definitely worth checking out!
Alot of interesting info...

Some details of Hemingway's life were new, but not what I expected. You didn't see Hemingway 's house or museum. Overall not bad.
What’s with all the free roaming roosters??

Mark was a great tour guide and really kept our kids engaged with questions as he shared his knowledge throughout the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about Hemingway’s way of life between 1928-1939 in Key West seeing where he lived, socialized, and worked. This is a great tour for individuals who like history. We did not know a lot about Hemingway prior to this tour, but we learned a great deal about how Key West was laid out in 1930’s and how it has changed over time. This is NOT a good option for individuals who may struggle with walking at a good pace for at least three miles. Lunch is offered half way through the tour at a beautiful local restaurant. The tour ends with a delicious rum punch at the original Sloppy Joe’s location (now Captain Tony’s).
Good tour
