Guest Code Of Conduct

Discover Sarasota Tours reserves the right to refuse bar service and/or deny boarding to any guest who is inebriated, loud, aggressive or otherwise demonstrating a lack of respect for other guests or staff, and not adhering to our Guest Code of Conduct.

Guests may be removed from the trolley if they do not comply with guides’ requests to quiet down or stop disrupting a tour; they may also be removed for exhibiting unruly or dangerous behavior toward cast, driver or other passengers.

Additionally, you will be held financially responsible for loss, damage or expense resulting from your conduct. For example, you may be liable for costs if your behavior causes damage to the vehicle or makes it impossible for other guests to enjoy their experience. We will charge any guest whose behavior ruins the tour for others the full cost of refunds issued to other guests.
