Just over a year ago it seemed impossible that an area such as Sarasota, known for some of the finest restaurants and cuisine on the gulf coast, lacked a simple tourist attraction…culinary tours. Susan Robinson set out to change that when she founded Key Culinary Tours and introduced its flagship St. Armands Circle lunch tour in January 2016. It was an instant hit. Guests not only loved the sampling of flavors around the Circle, but also hearing the rich history of John Ringling and the influence of the circus on our town.
Guests also made it known they wanted more tours! So Susan added a happy hour tour of St. Armands and a downtown Sarasota culinary tour near the historic Burns Court district. As tour popularity continued to grow, so did Susan’s desire to expand into specialty tours. Now just over a year later, Key Culinary proudly offers a myriad of specialty tours including a premium chef-led farmers market tour, an art gallery tour, a Lido Key culinary bike tour, holiday tours, and even world destination tours. All tours feature a beautiful blend of culinary delights and history, and are filled with both tourists and locals alike. Key Culinary Tours offers tours for individuals, groups and private parties, including special bachelorette parties, bridal parties, birthdays, reunion celebrations and more!
