Going on the sunset cruise felt like sailing into a beautiful painting. The sky colors mixed with the calm sea. It was an amazing trip that any sunset fan would love. Our captain was really friendly. Easy to find location with the restaurant and free parking on site.

Very nice, the comments are relevant and sometimes funny. We were unable to find our tour purchased on GetMyTicket on the app offered (GuideAlong), we had to buy a second one directly from the app.

Cindy took us safely and personably from Miami to Key West and back again. There were lots of tips and hints. Everything went smoothly and we even saw manatees at the harbor.

This is a wonderful way to learn about the Keys. I would strongly advise anyone to use this.

It was a wonderful experience. I recommend this app
