Very interesting and informative. Had a lot of fun going in The Cuban Club and learning about the dark history the building holds. I would definitely recommend booking with Charlie, he was a great guide!

While on vacation in Clearwater, we came across the listing for this ghost tour while looking for something to do on our last evening in the area. We are always interested in historical information and fascinated by paranormal activity so it sounded like just our kind of thing...and was it ever. Joe brings to life the history of the city,...

Me and my girlfriend went the other day having no clue what to expect and having never been to Ybor City. It turns out the city is such an odd and magnificent place to walk around and the history we were given was colorful and fascinating. We were allowed to investigate inside 3 different buildings as they were woven into... More

Took my teens to an evening ghost tour of ybor city. The guide was an engaging and exceptionally talented story teller who entertained by acting and role playing the notorious people who haunt the cities buildings. My kids felt like real ghost hunters as they held the monitoring devices and they toured dark basements. It was fun, and entertaining. I... More

We are paranormal fans and were not sure what to expect when we met Charlie in downtown Ybor on 3/26/15. He was friendly and prepared for all eventualities with the make up of the large group. He started off with fun jokes and insightful history. Charlie was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area, all of its ghosts and how... More

I went into this experience with considerable skepticism but I was delightfully surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Our tour guide, Charlie, knew so much about the town and it's history. He was an excellent story teller and I appreciated his palpable passion for what he does. The tour provided us an opportunity to be actively involved in the... More

I went on the ghost tour as a skeptic, and I'm still skeptical about ghosts--but the tour was a lot of fun and packed with information. Our guide, Charles, was entertaining and knowledgeable about Ybor's history, from the paranormal to the just plain bizarre. We saw beautiful buildings and got to go into two of the most gorgeous (the Don... More
