Meet your local guide at the pier for a stroll along palm-lined streets. Enjoy the fresh air and sunshine as your guide shares fascinating tidbits about the city’s culture and history not found in your guide book. Walk past Kenny Chesney’s vacation home then head over to see Jimmy Buffet’s recording studio. Along the way we will stop at two iconic hotspots. Taste what’s hot at Peppers of Key West then cool down at Kermit's Key Lime Shoppe with a slice of his classic pie or his signature frozen key lime pie dipped in Belgian chocolate. Finally, we will see what’s biting at the historic seaport before making our way back to Mallory Square. This is Key West's favorite food tour.

An absolute must-see for everyone who visits Key West is the home of Ernest Hemingway and his ”home away from home” Sloppy Joe’s Bar. You will be met pier side by your professional guide to begin a leisurely stroll throughout old town Key West. Along the way you will see and learn about the Truman Little White House, Bahama Village, the Straw Market and the Key West Lighthouse. Your guide will transport you to 1930’s Key West where Hemingway wrote some of his best work. At the museum your guided tour includes the home and beautiful gardens along with a chance to visit with the current residents - the six toed cats. These famous felines are descendants of Hemingway’s original pets. Next, we make our way to Hemingway’s favorite haunt - Sloppy Joe’s Bar. Here you will tour the historic building, learn of Hemingway’s more infamous past, and see some fascinating memorabilia. The tour concludes with the option to return to the cruise ship pier with your guide or enjoy your remaining free time downtown.
