Downtown Sarasota Brunch Tour

Quick Details


Experience a late morning/early afternoon in beautiful downtown Sarasota while enjoying its rich history and amazing food!

Our tour transports you through a timeline that reveals the origins of how “Brunch” came to be. Learn about some of our notable Sarasota Historical figures who enjoyed Brunch, as well as some Sarasota Suncoast history from its early beginnings to the present-day building boom. Your guide will share details and stories about the pioneers and wealthy trailblazers that spearheaded the discovery of Sarasota while you stroll its historic streets.
