Discover Sarasota Tours is partnering with Ride and Paddle of Siesta Key to offer an exciting full-day option called the City Beach Day Tour, combining a morning City Tour with an afternoon of relaxing on your own private Siesta Key beachfront with lounge chairs and umbrella provided by Siesta Key Beach Chairs.

“We are so excited to be able to offer a land and sea tour,” said Discover Sarasota Tours’ Tammy Hauser. “Working with Trish Sadd and her team at Ride and Paddle allows us to access a private Siesta Key beachfront with lounge chairs ready and waiting for our guests, a top-notch hospitality option for our many locals, snowbirds and visitors who do not want to drive or deal with parking issues at the beach or juggle their own chairs and umbrella.”

In the morning, guests will explore Sarasota’s historic neighborhoods, cultural attractions and places to dine and shop on a 45-minute narrated and air-conditioned City Tour, followed by 3 hours of Beach Time in the afternoon.

Additional options include hotel pickup/return (Sarasota downtown hotels only) boxed lunch, beach tote, and towel rental. In addition, guests can rent bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkeling gear once they arrive at the beach.

The City Beach Day Tour will run most days, year-round, from 10:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

Tickets are $179.99 for TWO adults (plus tax/handling; includes tour/transport/ private beach/beach lounger/umbrella, weather permitting). Child tickets are $69.99 each (plus tax/handling).

Tour ticket includes FREE Parking at the Trolley Cottage!
