So the best thing is thAt they waited for us as we were late as we got lost. Our tour guide was wonderful he was very intelligent and knowledgeable about the tour but also ab Ybor. So I've been on many tours and this was awesome. So after a few stories you get to go in the 4th most haunted... More

I have lived in Tampa for 4 years now and did not know many of the things explained on this tour. Many of the buildings I have walked by, or even into, and didn't realize their haunted past. Many interesting stories of the history of Ybor were told by our guide, Charles. He was very animated as he told us... More

We took this tour with Charlie as our guide. He was amazing. So much history and so many interesting stories. It was a wonderful adventure. It was so much more than I was expecting. Fantastic experience. No ghost sightings but the history lesson and atmosphere was well worth it. Do not hesitate.

This was a pretty good ghost tour (I like to do one whenever visiting a new place with history). The best part was being able to go inside the Cuban culture center, in the dark, at night. Even though I did not have any supernatural experiences (I would like to believe, but still haven't experienced any), the history and night-time... More

I love to watch ghost hunting and paranormal type shows on TV. I enjoy it. My husband is a huge skeptic. When I told him I wanted to go on this ghost tour, he humored me and went along. Joe was our tour leader that night. He was thorough, well-versed, and interesting. Joe presented the legends and historical facts of... More

I've been on many ghost tours now and this was very memorable. We went in April 2014 and my husband thoroughly enjoyed it. He took the EMF meter and ran around the Cuban culture center looking for ghosts. I'm a skeptic but I mainly enjoyed finding out about the history of Tampa and had no clue it was run by... More

Very much a historical tour. You will learn the history of the sights, the history of the important people and spotted people and you get to experience a bit of ghost hunting too!

Our family enjoys touring new places. And we have found that we especially enjoy ghost tours since they generally have good storytelling and we still learn the history of the place we are visiting. Our tour guide, Greg, was a wonderful storyteller and historian! Our tour consisted of 45 minutes to an hour of walking the streets of Ybor City... More

I highly recommend The Official Ybor City Ghost Tour—especially guided by the Charles Doan! Even after 20+ years of working or playing in Ybor the tour was filled with crazy history I had never heard of. It is neatly packaged in Charlie's great story telling and paranormal what-ifs... If you haven't, you should. Go.

I love history and I love ghost tours. And this brings both to the table! Joe is an awesome tour guide and you can tell he is very passionate about his job. We learned a lot about Ybor City and even had some encounters of our own!
