We did the culinary tour at St. Armand’s Circle yesterday. The restaurants and shops were all gracious, helpful and delicious! And our tour guide, Susan, was delightful and charming. We highly recommend Susan and this yummy tour!

Troy really MADE this tour! He came prepared to delight and frighten us on the very night when appearances of spirits were highly likely. His knowledge, storytelling ability and engaging wit really made this tour what it is — an opportunity to learn while indulging our desire to be totally frightened on a spooky night! Thank you, thank you!

We did the shark tooth tour with Grace and my fiancée and I had a great time. We met at Caspersen beach and we had about two hours to look for shark teeth. We found quite a few teeth in such a short amount of time. After the beach, we took our shark teeth to Shark Frenzy and Brittney the owner helped us identify each tooth! She was so positive and energetic! You can really tell she is passionate about fossils! She even made us a shark tooth necklace from our finds as a keepsake. We then headed to a restaurant called Made in Italy and the food was absolutely delicious. The amount of food that was included was great for the ticket price. Although, since it was only my fiancée and I we had to pay for two extra tickets because the tour needs a minimum of four participants. Still a great price and my fiancée had a great experience. I would highly recommend Grace as a tour guide. Thank you for making our trip so memorable! We can’t wait to come back!

This is an Absolute Must Do - if you can, at the beginning of your trip, so you know where to go, and what to do. I loved all of the food, and learning so much behind the scenes history about Anna Marie Island. We were absolutely stuffed by the last stop, and at least with our tour, we had treats to take home and eat later! Highly Recommend!!

We had a great afternoon with Rocky during the Venice Culinary tour. Wonderful food, great company, and he was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Learned more about our new city than we knew before. Highly recommend.

Rocky was very informative and knowledgeable about Venice. At first thought it was a bit pricy but it is well worth it. Food was great and we walked away absolutely stuffed. Will recommend to our friends and family.

My family had the best time with Troy during the Ghosts & Gruesomes tour last week. We love learning about the lesser-known and "darker" facts and legends of the places we visit during our travels. Our tour with Troy was one of the best we've experienced! This is a fun and easy walking tour in downtown Sarasota, strolling by the theaters and restaurants, and hearing some spooky and interesting tales. Highly recommended!

My family did the shark teeth hunting tour August 10th with Grace as our guide. She was very personable and taught us how to hunt for the shark teeth at Caspersen beach. We immediately waded into the surf and began our search. We were lucky enough to find a few shark teeth along with other neat things such as beach glass and stingray jaws. We then proceeded to downtown Venice with Grace showing us the beautiful shopping district. We stopped at Shark Frenzy where we met Brittni who made a couple of pieces of jewelry with our finds. We concluded our tour with a stone oven pizza at Made in Italy Restaurant. The whole experience was excellent and family friendly. We would definitely do this tour again on our next visit to the Sarasota area.

Troy was wonderful ! Told a lot of great stories. Wanted more opportunities to see/ take photos of ghosts. Great for history of Sarasota and touring a very nice art hotel downtown.

Key Culinary Tours has a Historical Culinary Tour in downtown Venice. We participate last Friday 2 to 5 pm - what fun and thoroughly enjoyed our guide Rocky. Yes it is a little pricy but well worth it with the great food you get and all the history of Venice - I will be doing this again bringing all my out of town guests. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
