What a wonderful way to see and learn about Sarasota wether you are visiting or live here it’s worth the trip. The store is adorable and the trolley is comfortable. Our guide and trolley driver made the trip a fun adventure.

Jon and Siggi combined to provide a great insider's view of the city and entertainment centers of Sarasota. We have lived in the city off and on for over 8 years. Last night, we saw areas that we had never visited and learned many new and somewhat obscure facts about our city.
