Wonderful Tour of the Keys
Apr 2021
We loved this tour. It was so much fun. Indy was absolutely great. Extremely professional, friendly, thorough. We went in the morning and my husband is still raving about this tour (it's now dinner time), the things we saw, and his interactions with Indy. If you can get this tour with Indy, we would highly recommend it.

Key Deer
Oct 2020
Our tour was wonderful. My wife and I were very impressed with our guide, Kim and her knowledge of the area.

She took us to Big Pine Key to see Key deer and we found a spot with a total of 11 deer. One of them, a buck with antlers, actually came up to me while I photographed him and sniffed and licked my phone. Unbelievable!

Feb 2020 • Couples
I’ve lived in key west since 1998 and admittedly feel jaded when it comes to playing tourist. However, Kim’s easygoing personality coupled with her extensive knowledge of the florida keys made the entire tour fun and super informative. I highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to spend the day enjoying the keys. Thanks for the fresh perspective Kim!

The tour was fantastic! Our guide Kim was so informative and fun we learned so much about the ecosystem and the different species importance to each island. The van was comfortable and the views were great! It was awesome to see the cute little Key Deer in their natural habitat in a non-invasive way. Highly recommend for any animal and nature lover!

Wonderful wildlife Tour!
Dec 2019 • Family
Kim was our driver and is incredibly knowledgeable about all things local! We saw and photographed Key Deer, a variety of birds, an alligator, a lovely beach, fascinating bridges, and other wildlife, military, and historically interesting sites.

The tour was at a comfortable pace and given in a relaxed style, but everything started and stayed on time. Very comfortable and nicely air conditioned van. Kim made sure to share interesting history and stories every step of the way, which was a huge bonus!

She’s a long-time local, and volunteers for several different nature and charitable groups, so Kim has first-hand expertise in multiple aspects of the Keys. We must have asked dozens of questions, and received informative and entertaining answers to every one.

Mom, Dad, and teens all highly recommend Up the Keys!
