Lonnie was a very informative tour guide and interesting storyteller. We received a good grasp of Ybor City history and was very impressed with Lonnie.

Ybor City seems to have something for everyone. There is parking all over the town and a trolly that also brings you in from downtown Tampa and other parts of the city. They have a great nightlife scene but during the day it completely transforms into a really cool laid back area. If you find yourself looking for something to... More

On a recent trip to visit my sister, she arranged for a tour of the historic old city named Ybor. Knowing nothing about Ybor or the history of Tampa, I had no expectations except to get a sense of the rich history of the beautiful city of Tampa and it's economic and cultural contribution to the beautiful state of Florida....

Lonnie Herman was our tour guide. Excellent Job! He kept everyone in the shade as it was a little warm that day. Learned very interesting facts about Ybor City that I did not know. We have lived in the Tampa Bay area and had no idea of the history behind Ybor City. Will do this again when we have friends/family... More

Joe did a fantastic job telling the history of Ybor City by making it come alive! His entertaining manner kept everyone interested and wanting more. Joe definitely has an vast knowledge of Ybor City and has obviously done extensive research on the historical facts about each time period he discussed during the tour. This tour is a great way to...

I have lived in Tampa, Florida for 5 years and have frequented the eclectic Ybor City countless times (both during the day and in the evening). However, I had no idea the history of this town. Lonnie is simply wonderful, bringing the cities history to life with his extensive knowledge. The tour lasts about 90 minutes and Lonnie did a... More

Really enjoyed the walking tour of Ybor City today. Terry is a great story teller and so full of knowledge about the history of Ybor. It was a very warm day but he found shady spots even with a place to sit while he talked about each area that we walked through. My friend left her purse at one of... More

Before I went to St. Pete for a conference, I googled what to do when we arrived in Tampa. I lived in FL for a while but never knew the complete history of Ybor City. Lonnie's tour was outstanding. The tour started at 11 at a perfect well-known location along 7th Ave. in Ybor and lasted until almost 130 where... More

I wanted to do something fun and unusual when visiting family in Tampa and going on this tour was the perfect way for the family to do something interesting and historical. I went to college in Tampa, but never knew the rich history of Ybor City. We were fortunate enough to have Lonnie as our guide. He really knows his... More
