Svetlana is one of the very best and nicest tour guides I have encountered so far. Although almost without exception ALL guides on my private tours have been superb I am awed at Svetlana's knowledge of Key West and its history, which she shares with her passengers, after having there just a short 10 years. She emits a love for the island and all things connected with it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bruna , thank you so very much for your kind words that filled my heart with joy and warmth . That is exactly why I do what I do . I love this island with all my heart and want to share a piece of my heart with you . I am also very happy that despite the 2 short hours you now know more that a lot of people staying here for days . Best regards and hope to see you again one day !

Our group of 6 adults very much enjoyed our private excursion with Svetlana. She was entertaining, interesting, informative and fun to be with. We're glad we went with a guide instead of going on our own. With Svetlana we saw and learned more. She was responsive to our interests and needs and I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for a great local guide in Key West.

How delighted we were to meet Svetlana, she is such a friendly and knowledgeable guide. She contacted us a few days before our ship arrived and was waiting for us in the agreed meeting place in her buggy. What followed was an amazing tour of the island covering all the known places of interest and many more besides which would have been too far on foot and taken too long. We learnt so much about Key West old and new and cannot recommend Svetlana too highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Had an amazing time with you, thank you !
James MaloneyUnited States
Svetlana was a wonderful guide to the many facets of Key West that the generic tour buses & trolleys don't cover. She knows so much history--and loves to share her love for a place she has made her home.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you for such a wonderful review ! I truly enjoyed our tour , your group was fun and enthusiastic and I loved the connection ! Have a great holiday season and call me whenever you are coming back to Key West
Joy ShihUnited States
Thank you, Svetlana, for a lovely tour of Key West. We particularly enjoyed seeing the Truman house, the African Cemetary, the botanical garden, tasting the seafood appetizer at lunch, and the suggestion on where to get the chocolate covered key lime pie! We learned so much history in such a short time. You are awesome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you for the wonderful review! it was a pleasure showing you around! come back again so we can do another fun tour!!!

Walter TaliaferroUnited States
If you're ever fortunate enough to be in Key West....grab the tour with "The Queen Of Key West"! Svetlana and I had a great time. From the history of Key West to interesting Hemmingway stories...Just a fantastic time!..She took a lot of pictures at my request..(they turned out great). To really see Key West...Svetlana is the way to go.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for that awesome review ! Had a great time with you Walter ! And hope to see you again on your next trip !

Mary FournessUnited States
We found Svetlana very personable and engaging. She had a great knowledge of Key West and offered a great transportation option. A suggestion for our next trip would be to have a way to make sure the whole group could hear her commentary.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary ! I a had a great time with you ! You are right with the golf car that is open on all sides and a windy weather it can be hard to hear the guide from the last seat . So I apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused ! Thank you for the suggestion and I will look into improving that part ! Enjoy the rest of your vacation !!
Karen EsteppUnited States
Svetlana was an excellent tour guide. My daughter and I learned so much. There was so much about Key West that I did not know. I was so glad I booked this tour. We did the private Key West tour that is 3.5 hours. It was a wonderful way to spend the day in Key West off cruise ship. She really knows Key West and showed us so many great things. She met us near pier by cruise ship. We did some walking and saw sites, and then drove to see others. I would definitely recommend her tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Karen ! It was great to meet you and your daughter and I hope to see you again In the future trips !

My friend and I enjoyed our Key West walking tour with Svetlana. She made everything so interesting, and she has wonderful knowledge of Key West. Historical fact was liberally peppered with anecdotal comments, some of them very funny. She was respectful of our walking pace, and by the end of the tour we felt we had made a new friend. We highly recommend her.

Sally CureUnited States
My friend and I arrived on a Cruise Ship in Key West on 2/12 and had the pleasure of having a private tour with Svetlana. Since my traveling companion has difficulty walking we had asked for a tour to be conducted with little walking involved. Svetlana picked us up at the port at a very convenient location and gave us an absolutely wonderful tour. She pointed out all of the places of interest and she had a fabulous knowledge of the area and the history. We would not hesitate to use Svetlana again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: hello Sally! It is great to hear from you and what a wonderful review! thank you for challenging me to create a different tour it was fun and I had the most amazing time showing you around! please give the best regards to your friend Margie.

Robert QuistSalt Lake City, UTAH, United States
Wow, what a great tour. We have visited Key West prior but the town came to life with Sevtlana. Her 8 years of personal research of all things Key West was informative, well described, and entertaining. Key Lime pie and Pina Colada were very nice touches. We had no difficulty finding her at the meeting point even though we were a bit late, she was on time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, I am deeply touched by your words and extremely excited that I could contribute to your great time in key west ! I had fun with you as well ! It felt like I was just showing around to my old friends ! Enjoy the rest of the trip !!
