Discover Sarasota Tours kicks off the season with a brand-new vehicle, “Dolly The Trolley.” Dolly can seat 30 people and will be running several times a day all year long leading entertaining guided and narrated tours of Sarasota’s history and culture.

“I have been dreaming about owning my own trolley since I started the tours three years ago,” said founder and CEO Tammy Hauser. “Dolly is gorgeous and comes with comfortable seat pads, double air conditioning and a terrific speaker system for our guests,” she added.

You can meet Dolly at the Discover Sarasota Tours’ Annual Trolley Bash—Retro Style with a fundraiser for the Historical Society of Sarasota County on Thursday, November 4 at 4:30 PM. The party includes food trucks Big Blue and The ChillMobile providing tasty treats, music by Steve McAllister, holiday shopping in the Vintage Sarasota Gift Shop, and a meet-and-greet with guides and information on new season tours.

In the upcoming 2022 season, several new tours will be added:

• Leading Ladies of Sarasota
• Murder Mystery Trolley
• Wine & Chocolate Love Tour
• Dine-Along Trolley

All tours depart from the Trolley Cottage, located at 1826 Fourth Street—a cute 1930s bungalow near downtown with a charming Vintage Sarasota gift shop and The ChillMobile vintage ice cream truck.

Tours are offered on “Dolly The Trolley,” Discover Sarasota Tours’ NEW 30-passenger custom trolley, or “Vanna White,” our 9-passenger high-top tour van. Tour tickets and information online at or call 941-260-9818.
