Tours & Information
We like to tell our story walking. And eating, too. So we’ve combined both endeavors into two special tour packages that offer a sensational way to get the full historical flavor of the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club.
History Tour & Luncheon
Lunch, learn, and live the history of the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club on a docent-guided tour of the historic building and gardens. Listen to tales of bygone gala events, the famous guests who frequented them, and visit a comprehensive history exhibit.
The hour-long History Tour departs from the Navigator at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday through Saturday for $10 per person. Or, add a three-course lunch in the stunning, historic dining room, Marchand’s Bar & Grill, for $25 per person, including tax and gratuity.
Gone are the days when an engraved ashtray or a monogrammed towel served as a fond reminder of one’s stay at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club. Today, guests can recollect their experiences at the Vinoy with these special keepsakes:
Souvenir of St. Petersburg, Views from the Vinoy
