Key West, Miami & The Everglades 2019

7 Days, January 26th - February 1st

Key West has become one of our most popular destinations with our annual tour selling out every year, months ahead of departure. It’s a top flight experience, limited to just 25-30 travelers. Here is your chance to get in early on the 2019 departure. All we are asking with your reservation is a $250 deposit. Next spring, we will bill you and give you the opportunity to take advantage of any Early Payment Di$counts.

Key West is a pedestrian-friendly destination, and because of that we walk to many attractions. For this reason, we do not recommend this tour for travelers with serious mobility issues.
