Our tour guide, Kendra Cross, was a wonderful story-teller, filled with factual and personal information. She pointed out common differences between the Amish and Mennonite communities and cultures and answered many questions that probably most have pondered.

We visited the Carlisle Inn, Der Dutchman Restaurant, the Quilt Shop and a quick ride through the most popular community of Pine Craft, summer home to many of the Sarasota Amish residents.

The Trolley is a comfortable and pleasurable sightseeing and educational experience.

If you haven’t had a chance to try this tour you should!
It was so much fun with a wonderful cast and a very engaged audience. The participation of everyone is really what makes this such a fun experience. It’s fun to try something out of the ordinary. This was definitely that!

I've experienced both the Murder Mystery and the City Sightseeing tours and enjoyed each one thoroughly! I learned so much about the rich history of Sarasota and had a ball traveling around town at night on Dolly the Trolly with great entertainers!! I would recommend Discover Sarasota Tours to visitors and locals alike.

Our tour guide John and our driver, John, gave us a perfect John squared overview of Sarasota! We would recommend this fantastic tour to all visitors to Sarasota. Especially at the begining of your stay so that you will be able to take advantage of all the recommended dining spots and tourist attractions that Sarasota has to offer.
Thanks again for the historic overview, great stories, dining recommendations, tourist attractions and must-do's.

Focused on the life of the tour guide. Not enjoyable. Guide was sarcastic and many of his statements were profanity laced. Extremely unprofessional.

John I do not understand your motivation in writing this review which is false. We do not allow any profanity on our tour. You do not name a tour guide. All our guides hand out cards with their names. We have no record of a john H on any tour this week. You have written only one review and it is this one which seems suspect. Are you a family member of Mason who wrote a horrible review then had each family member write duplicate reviews? It sounds like her review. The tour yesterday was reviewed above and clearly has no relationship to the tour experience you describe. Our tours are professionally run by local guides who take great pride in their work. I wrote the script so am confidant there is no profanity in it. I’ve been on all my tours many times and have never heard anything that you describe which makes me question what your motivation is in writing this review. It’s simply not true and harmful to my company and staff.
