    Holy moly, one of the best experiences! It was very pricey, but I was so glad we did it! I booked for a family of 5 in January for a trip in May. I had no issues booking on the website. Check in at 7 was super easy, everyone was really friendly. Our crew for the day did an amazing job. They were super knowledgeable, interactive and approachable. The fort itself was probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Just gorgeous views everywhere you look. We walked around and got into the history and then we went swimming & snorkeling. Just amazing. I would absolutely go back.

    We enjoyed a beautiful Key West afternoon at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. The fort was very interesting, though lacking in signage explaining what you were seeing. Still, very cool place.

    The beach was absolutely beautiful, and was a wonderful place to swim. The water was very tropical looking, and was the perfect temperature for swimming.

    No trip to Key West would be complete without a visit to Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. Two thumbs up!

    It was a fascinating glimpse into the history of this ship. We first-rate tour guide. We hope this ship continues to get the care and preservation it deserves for long into the future.

    This place is a gem! Do not miss it! It’s a smallish place located right on the beach that is packed with beautiful and interesting plants…a butterfly garden, flowering cacti, flowering trees and shrubs, sculpture, and so much more. Bring your camera! The exhibits are all outdoors. There is no admission fee but this non profit accepts donations. After touring the gardens, trust me you’ll want to make a donation. You could spend 1/2 hour here or an hour or so. They also have a small, lovely gift shop.

    I had read good reviews about this place ahead of our recent trip, but it kept getting pushed down the list of things to do. My Dad and I ended up here on the final day of our trip as it rained. Wow!! What an awesome place filled with so much information on the Florida Keys ecosystem. We are still shocked that it's free to visit!! And free to park!! Which is not common in Key West. Definitely a must for anyone traveling with kids, but even without (we did not have children with us) - all should check this out!

    What a beautiful hidden treasure. Great place to visit and relax. Walk around the garden and overlook the water. We found a beautiful spot in the garden to just chill out

    Terrific shop full of interesting art and photography. A great stop as you wander historic Key West. Colorful and full of perfect tropical art and interesting photography for any Vandenberg wreck divers. We ended up with a really nice print after getting a complete history of its creation from the very interesting owner. Not a pretentious gallery, but rather a fun stop on the way to the next site, bar or restaurant.

    My Dad and I visited the Fort East Martello Museum a few days ago. Make sure to buy online as it saves a few dollars as compared to buying at the front entrance - I know it seems like a few dollars doesn't matter, but it's super easy online and all adds up over a visit to Key West! The museum was interesting, not our favorite, but glad we visited. The fort is mostly intact and was of the main interest. Picked up a beautiful (and surprisingly inexpensive) glass rooster ornament in the gift shop!

    Our time with Nancy and her parrots was the highlight of our trip to Key West. We learned a lot and enjoyed listening to her stories and watching her interact with a Hyacinth Macaw who was very eager to show us many of the things he has learned.

    What an amazing gallery. We attended an opening and were amazed at the activity. Great rooftop with live music and bar, it was a happening scene.

    It was very pretty, nice break from all the crowds. It would be a nice place to eat your lunch. It's 10 dollars per adult. Manage expectations, it is a botanical gardens so if you are not interested in plants and trees it might not be very interesting to you.

    Best tour in Key West! Lots of great information...opportunity for samples. Definitely recommend ordering a cocktail to go...the Pina Colada with a rum floater or Mojito!! We purchased lots of nips to go, but only went home with a few by the end of our trip. Definitely recommend a stop here!

    Cute place, fantastic, friendly and professional staff who enjoy their jobs. One of the best massages ever and hands down the best facial of my life.

    I had my first facial ever today in my 53 years of living with Jennifer Fox. It was amazing. I didn’t realize all the much needed relaxing extras that came with a facial. I can’t wait till my next appointment. Thank you Jennifer
