To accommodate COVID-19 requirements, DST has teamed up with SRQ Trolleys on a UV light sanitation method to prepare all trolleys for tours. This special UV light, used by airlines to kill 99.99% of germs and viruses on aircraft, will help ensure a microbe-free environment for Discover Sarasota Tours guests.

In addition, staff and guests will have their temperatures taken when they arrive. Anyone with a fever will be asked to leave and have their tickets refunded. All guests will be encouraged to wear masks and use the disposable hand sanitizer packets offered at no charge. For guests who do not have them, masks will be sold at the Vintage Sarasota Gift Shop.

Tour Guides and Reservation Staff will wear masks while greeting guests. The first rows of seats will remain unsold to ensure distance from the guide and driver. We will be selling up to 26 of 39 seats on each tour. Once trolleys are boarded, tour guides will remove their masks in order to deliver an entertaining tour experience.
