      Fun time on the Murder Mystery Trolley Tour
      The tour was a blast!!! Well worth the money. I had so much fun. Everyone on the tour was friendly and into having fun as well. The crew and actors did a great job and made it fun. Very creative. I would recommend this to anyone. Can't wait to try another tour.

      Great way to get initiated to Sarasota
      An enjoyable introduction to Sarasota’s history and packed with mentions of places to visit. The trolley was adequately air conditioned on a 90-degree day, and the benches have a comfortable pad. Steve’s narration was lively, humorous and informed.

      Did you know about Sarasota?
      Lots of interesting facts about Sarasota. One hour and a half of fun facts and history about the city. Seats a little hard, but worth the trip.

      It was very good, but we were very uncomfortable.
      5 stars for the tour, the performance, and all the staff. 0 star for the the air conditioner. There was a unit in the back on the ceiling, I believe to be an air conditioner that wasn’t doing anything. There is an air conditioner in the front of the trolley that was working but the air did not reach the back. Take the tour, but be sure to get a seat in the front until this problem is fixed.

      Sarasota architecture surprises
      Surprisingly knowledgeable Docent gave a 2 hour bus tour about Sarasota architecture. We did not realize it is one of two leading cities for mid-20th century modern residential architecture. Enjoyable morning.

      Fun and very informative!
      I learned so much about Mediums and the ways of how it all came about. Our favorite stop was the Sound Bath. With each musical note, I could feel stress leave my body. I was skeptical at first but when I had a “mini reading” she was spot on with my Dad and his collection of wrist watches. I now intend to learn more it all. Thank you !

      We learned a lot about Sarasota!!
      It was a very interesting tour! Our tour guide Ed was so knowledgeable and full of fun facts that the 90 minutes went by in a flash! We appreciated his enthusiasm for Sarasota! The trolly is very comfortable and the driver was also very good and got us close to everything we were hearing about! We will definitely go back for another tour!!

    We have been in Sarasota for over twenty years as “snowbirds” and have never noticed in detail the public art in our city. While we may not always like or understand some of the sculpture, this tour helped us see all the beauty we have in sculpture and murals. All of these add up to be a critical ingredient in what makes Sarasota so special. Our guide and driver did a great job!

    Sarasota is known for its support of the arts and riding in the trolley and getting to see so many amazing murals and sculptures throughout the city was SO interesting! We have vacationed down here for over 30 years and yet have missed seeing so much art!! I highly recommend this fun 2 hour tour.

    Our guide [Jerome/Jerry] and driver, Ziggy provided a fascinating and informative afternoon tour! Although we've visited Sarasota for several years we had no idea how much public art is positioned around the city!
    Loved the up close peak and informative narrative! Highly recommend the tour for anyone new OR familiar with Sarasota - you will witness art you've missed!

    This was an incredible hour and a half!
    Our guide, Jerome Chesley, a local artist, knew the subject so thoroughly and shared just the right amount with easy enthusiasm that was a pleasure to listen to!
    I've been on several other tours where Siggy was the same jovial fun driver.

    Like other tours I have been on with Discover SRQ, this was fabulous! Long enough, yet short enough and packed with interesting Sarasota facts and tidbits.
