What you'll do
You will be joining us on an intimate 3 hr. culinary and historical walking tour while our local guides share not only the best food but also their amazing stories as you leisurely walk from place to place. You will discover the history, eat delicious food and hear the stories that only true locals know. You will be tasting 4 entrees and sides with a fabulous dessert and wine or beer finish at the last stop. Come hungry! It’s enough for a meal! Between food stops you will hear stories about Sarasota’s history, architecture, why we have so many streets named for fruits, and what happened here during the Roaring 20’s!! *All of our experiences are intimate groups (less than 10) led by professional yet fun local guides and timed to avoid large crowds. Discover the Sarasota food scene and why we are the original food tour company with over 3500 happy guests in 4 yrs.* Sure, there’s dozens of dining websites and about 1000 restaurants in Sarasota, but when you’re really looking for the best places to eat in our city, we have you covered!
I’m Susan and I am a lifelong foodie and the founder of Key Culinary Tours. I have traveled the world & the one thing I have ALWAYS done and still do is eat! I quickly learned that the best way to find the locals favorites was on a food tour. I began Key Culinary Tours in 2015 to create experiences rich in delicious food AND history. My very first tour was in St. Armands Circle not only because of its fantastic food scene, but also because of its rich history and unique circus ties to the Ringling Brothers. When those tours took off, we knew other neighborhoods would be great experiences also so we gradually expanded to downtown Sarasota, Venice Island, Anna Maria Island. Discover Sarasota’s vibrant food scene with my original take and proven passion.
Many delicious tastings! But come hungry, it all adds up to a meal! We can accommodate dietary restrictions such as…
