Visitors, guests, full- and part-time residents, often look for a new way to explore our area. Key Culinary Tours, a subsidiary of Sarasota Suncoast Tours, is the perfect answer!
Initially, our food tours started in St. Armands Circle because of its rich natural history and unique circus tradition brought here by the Ringling Brothers and its fantastic and varied food scene. Thousands of people stroll the boutique shops and gourmet restaurants on St. Armands Circle each day and it is one of the most exquisite and charming retail establishments in Florida, and arguably the world.
When the St. Armands food tours took off we knew other neighborhoods would be great for these experiences as well so we quickly expanded to downtown Sarasota, Venice Island, Anna Maria Island and other nearby neighborhoods and a really awesome chef-led farmers market tour on Saturdays. Now our guests can choose between 15 different tours at different times of the day and different days of the week throughout our slice of paradise!
While culinary tours are at the heart of what we do, we also offer a variety of walking and trolley tours. Some of the different types include architectural tours, historical tours and ghosts and gruesomes tours. In addition, we have trolley tours showcasing the highlights of Sarasota, through our sister company Sarasota Suncoast Tours.
Finally, for those of you who like to travel, check out our international culinary tours to exotic locations like Spain, Italy, Budapest, Copenhagen, and other interesting places! Our fantastic tour guides are ready to take you and your family and friends out on a fun tour! Remember too, we do private special event tours for corporate outings, weddings, bridal showers, team-building, etc. There really is something for everyone. See you on a tour soon!
