If you’re like us, you think of travel as more than just “going places.” You crave experience and discovery, not just monuments and museums. You want to understand what’s behind the touristic façade that most people never penetrate. That’s why the Southernmost Walking Tour is the best way to immerse you into the history and culture of Key West! When you’re on foot, the world can’t slide past you faster than you can absorb it. You’ll have time – and proximity – to get up close to the region’s culture and natural history.
Start your tour at the famous Cuban sandal factory - Kino Sandals before heading off toward the Southernmost Point of the continental United States. Along the way, our incredibly knowledgeable and well-connected local guides will show you the most popular landmarks and introduce you to local culture. By the time you’re finished, you’ll have a uniquely fun perspective of our tiny island!
We had a tour with Alejandro and he was amazing! He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about key west history, architecture, and the local plants and animals. He had good restaurant recommendations. He had a great slideshow with him with old pictures of Key West. You could stand in the same spot and see how many of the buildings look exactly the same. He also did a good job of keeping most of the tour in the shade. I would highly recommend this tour!
Outstanding tour full of historical information and many points of interest. AJ was extremely knowledgeable and professional.
My husband and I recently took this tour with AJ in Key West. We had visited Key West many times but we never knew the history as AJ presented it to us. We are history buffs where ever we travel and enjoy learning more about where we travel. WE also appreciate the fact we had a "person tour" with AJ since no one else signed up for the tour. His knowledge about the island was in depth and he was able to answer any question we asked him. I would highly recommend this walking tour to anyone who wants to know more about Key West. He also gave good recommendations about other sites and restaurants to go to while we were staying in Key West. Thank you!
If I could give AJ ten stars I certainly would! He's the kind of tour guide that draws you in with his enthusiasm and love for Key West. We were lucky to have chosen a day when we were the only ones in the tour, but a small-group would've been as amazing. As other tours on the conch train passed us, it was clear that they were only getting quick facts, whereas we were given a full story which in turn made us appreciate Key West and the Old Town neighborhood a lot more.

Who Knew! So Much History
We had a terrific tour of Key West with Alejandro this morning. We started at the west end of town and finished at the Southernmost Point. Along the way we learned so much about the island’s history from Ponce de Leon to Hemingway. Alejandro painted a picture of the old times, over the centuries, in Key West giving us a much greater appreciation of Key West’s role US and World history.
I highly recommend this tour!
As a bonus Alejandro gave us tips on the top sights we should see suring the rest of our time and he emailed us his map of top sights and restaurants, very useful!

AJ was exactly what you hope for when you are booking a walking tour! He was extremely knowledgeable, had a iPad to show pictures of the people/places as we came upon them to see how they had or hadn’t changed, he took time to take our picture at memorable spots and we had many laughs along the way! This was the best walking tour we have done and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about Key West history while having a great time! Thank you AJ
Great Way to Learn about Key West
Alejandro or "AJ" was super knowledgeable about the history of Key West from its cigar making heydays, to current day sights and scene. This is a 90 minute tour that goes so quick because it is is chock full of information and provides a fun way to explore and learn alot Key West. AJ uses an IPAD to show old Key West photos and additional information to supplement his tour. We do these in many cities and comparably this is a top notch tour & tour guide
Great walking tour of Key West
This walking tour was one of my favorite activities during our trip. It helped orient us to the island and to learn about its facinating history. We also came away with ideas for what to explore further. AJ was great. I highly recommend the tour.
A great orientation tour on our first day in Key West. Our tour guide, AJ, was fun and informative. Tour lasted around 90 minutes and was well worth the time and cost.
We were very lucky as others had cancelled so the 2 of us were given pretty much a private tour by our excellent guide Alejandro or AJ. Starting at 9 was good as it wasn't too hot and crowds were thin. We learned an enormous amount about the interesting history of Key West in the days before it was a tourist town. AJ also gave us some good tips as to which places would be worth a closer look & emailed us a map to download
