"As soon as I arrived here, I felt the laid-back island vibe that Key West offers and knew I wanted to move her permanently. The Secret Food Tour guide role is my favorite to date, and I love sharing historical facts and interesting tidbits about the area, especially information on Ernest Hemingway, President Harry S. Truman and all the other stories that make this place unique!"

WHY OLD TOWN?

The area of Old Town is the historic district of Key West. Among other people of history, Ernest Hemingway lived here over much of the 1930's. It is home to a charming, historic lighthouse, and a thriving food and bar scene along Duval street. You'll find fresh local seafood that's caught daily by the local fisherman; and it's where you'll meet some of the friendliest people on the planet.

You'll be able to soak up the charm of the neighborhood's historically significant Victorian, shotgun, and conch-style homes that stand along our tree-lined streets. You'll get lost in the magic of Key West, as you're immersed in the atmosphere of the Conch Republic. Our guides will entertain you with funny and interesting anecdotes about this amazing district.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
