What people are saying about Sails To Rails Museum at Flagler Station

Everything went as advertised. The bus appeared on time. That the driver has earned a few extra dollars, like a small obelus to get the best seats, is part of it. The four hour outward journey was very entertaining as our driver knew and told a lot about the things we could see outside. We had six hours on site to explore Key West, which is more than enough. It is also not necessary to book the activities in the bus with the driver (which the driver certainly does not do without financial self-interest) because you can book these activities yourself without any problems on site, even if the driver keeps pointing out that due to the holidays or similar, these would often no longer be bookable on site. Conclusion: All in all, a nice excursion that was worth its price.
