We spent a morning in late March with our guide Raymond Miller, who was an expert at his craft. I feel the tour is a little long, especially in the heat... but Raymond kept it all interesting. It was great money and time well spent... and would do it again!

Lonnie was a wealth of information. He kept the tour moving but was not fast-paced. Several shaded stops and 2 air conditioned stops were included in the tour which was a nice break in the Florida heat. Thank you Lonnie!

I've been on a number of walking tours in different cities and this is the best I've ever experienced. Tour guide REALLY knew his topic i.e. he hadn't just memorized a script but has been researching Ybor for a long time. Highly recommended.

I always look for walking tour to learn about the cities I visit, and this tour was very informative. The tour guide Lonnie brought the building and street to life with his wonderful way to give you the cultural history. The tour ends at the visitor center, make sure to watch the film. After the tour right around the corner... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour tour with Lonnie. His great sense of humor and talent for story telling made the tour both entertaining and informative! He was also terrific about keeping our comfort in mind. On the warm day we toured with him, he was mindful to keep us in the shade and hydrated. Would absolutely recommend this terrific... More

We took the tour with Lonnie who is very knowledgeable of the history of Ybor City. I had been to Ybor before but only to go to bars, so being able to learn about the history during the day was a great thing. We went to the Ybor City museum afterwards and felt like we knew most of it already... More
