George S. — Sarasota, FL

I loved this Circus tour!!! With super circus connections and knowledge of local circus history, the guide, Bob Collins, was fabulous. One of the best storytellers of any tour I’ve taken, anywhere!

Lynn C. — Sarasota, FL

Even though I moved here more than five years ago, the tour exposed to me new neighborhoods and facts about the history of Sarasota. Our guide Steve is a native, so had a wealth of info to share. Thank you for a fun time!

Sandra S. — Naples, FL

We highly recommend this 1 1/2 hour trolley tour as a start to your visit. You won’t regret it.

Camilia — Detroit, MI

We had a great time on this tour. Would recommend and do again. I would recommend doing this tour in the beginning of your vacation.

Lisa D. — Sarasota, FL

We would highly recommend this tour for first time visitors of Sarasota as well as locals, like us, who want to learn more!

Giselle S. — Sarasota, FL

The guides were knowledgeable and engaging, and you could tell that they enjoyed giving the tours as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Judy T. – Chicago, IL

I took the circus tour and didn’t realize just how much Ringling is entrenched in Sarasota history, continuing into the present. Mr. Collins was awesome, informative, and obviously loves the circus and his city.

Elaine S. – Chicago, IL

We just returned from the inaugural circus tour and all I can say is WOW! Bob Collins is an incredible host and tour guide. Learned so much and saw so many sights I would never have found on my own. Can’t wait for all the upcoming tours!

Lily H. — Denver, CO

I highly recommend the Ghost Tour of Sarasota – History, Hauntings, and High Jinx! The name of the tour originally caught my eye and I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. I loved the little cottage where the tour started and our tour guide, Sarafina, was great!

Kathryn C. — Sarasota, FL

Fun and informational trip through the highlights, history and fun facts of Sarasota. As a local, I learned about many new and fascinating stories about the town I now call home.

Laura B. — Sarasota, FL

An interesting, fun tour with very informative and entertaining hosts!
