501 Front St , 501 Front St, Key West, FL 33040, USA

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.

The tour guide was so fun and had great energy. The tour has a lot of interesting stories and facts in addition to the many scary/creepy stories. Plus you get a great view of the whole island. After a long day in the summer sun in Florida it was so nice to kick back and ride around hearing ghost stories!

Don’t waste your money

Waaaay overpriced for what the tour entails. No bathrooms, no food or drinks (which yes I know wasn’t included) but for what we paid it was a cheesy 30 min bus tour and when I say cheesy, I mean cheesy. 10/10 would not recommend.

I loved learning about the secrets of Key West. I felt the staff was really knowledgeable in the presentation. There was only one stop that we were able to get off at. Would have liked to have more opportunities to be engaged than just sitting on the bus. The staff was very friendly

Not a very interesting...
Marquisha_W

Not a very interesting tour. Just saying this place is haunted and that place is haunted is not enough. I would not do the tour again and would discourage others from wasting their time and money. It’s my opinion that there is other things I enjoyed far more in Key west.

Doomed in Key West❤️
LizabethCarter_J
, May 2022
As always, hearing each year, the different ways the guide tell the story- always perfection! The enthusiasm while the guide brings the “scary” to life. The ease of on and off the trolley. Knowing that the next year I get to ride with “The Doomed” all over again!!!!!!! Many thanks Ivan and Louann. 5/21/2022- thanks for a great Birthday

Interesting tour that is relaxing. Could do without the obnoxious drunks on board but the staff does their best to set the rules or discharge them off the trip.
