Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Host bartender Joe was fantastic. Lot’s of cool stories about Key West history. Would’ve loved to spend more time in shipwreck museum to “ghost hunt”, but overall a very good tour and I would recommend it. Try to go early in your stay so that you can explore some the areas that they take you to.

The tour was entertaining but we only did the tour to see Robert the Doll. The website showed pictures of people visiting him so we thought we would get to see him too. Only got to hear a story about him.
