Maximize your time on the island with an All-in-One Adventure

The Hemingway Experience, the company’s exclusive private tour gone public by demand, celebrates Key West’s most infamous author, Ernest “Papa” Hemingway, on a historical journey retracing his steps around Old Town. Our 4-hour guided experience stops at (6) locations, all aiding in telling Hemingway’s story in Key West & Cuba.

Each ticket includes guided entrance into his famed Key West home where you can pet the property’s six-toed cats and see where he wrote many of his most iconic works. Then eat, drink, and explore the island through “Papa’s eyes”, feasting on the Cuban cuisine (and boozy beverages) that he fell in love with while your knowledgeable local guide impresses with interesting stories and amazing fun facts.

The adventure takes you behind the scenes of a 3rd generation family run cigar rolling factory, and into the newly remodeled Social Club at Hemingway Rum Co. for his favorite drink made with his family company’s premium rum. Then finish with a slice of our famous key lime pie!

After the tour, explore Old Town with confidence and take advantage of recommendations on restaurants, attractions, entertainment, and cultural offerings. You’ll also receive a collection of exclusive recipes, ensuring that you can enjoy memories from this tour for many years to come!
