Tour departs from 501 Front Street (Corner of Duval and Front St). Guests are required to check in 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.

This activity will end right where it started.
Key West’s original “frightseeing” tour is an evening of fear and fun. It’s a chance to travel back in time to another era. This shadowy, sinister tour departs nightly from the Front Street Depot at the corner of Front and Duval Streets.

Climb aboard the Trolley of the Doomed for an experience unlike any other. Uncover Key West’s darkest secrets and hear the stories of those lost souls who many locals believe still wander the streets of this historic island town.

Your tour will travel past many of the island's most haunted locations ~ the Marrero House, the Porter Mansion, and even the Hanging Tree! Of particular interest will be the former home of Robert Eugene Otto, aka the Artist's House. There, imprisoned in the attic by Dr. Otto's wife, Robert the Doll suffered the abandonment of his lifelong companion, and his mischievous ways took a more sinister turn.

Come with an open mind and see if any ghosts appear on this frightful, fun ghost tour. It’s a ride on the dark side.

Excellent tour!

This was our second time doing this tour and it was great! “Joe the bartender” does a phenomenal job telling the history and stories throughout the tour. Highly recommend! However, for the cost it would be cool if the tour also included going inside one of the historical homes noted on the tour or going to visit Robert the Doll!
