This is a great tour for locals or tourists. It is as much a history tour as a ghost tour and the way Greg tells the stories you get a real sense of what life was like in Ybor over the years. There was only one other very nice couple that made for a pleasant evening. Whether or not you... More

My boyfriend and I were ghost tour virgins before this and I'm pretty sure we're now going to be hooked. There were only two other people on the tour with us, as well as our guide Greg, who was INCREDIBLE. The man certainly knows how to tell a tale and to make it stick with you. Plus, given the small...

This tour has been rated number 1 in the country by 2 different magazines for good reason. It was a great surprise. We had the best guide who made this tour extremely interesting. That made all the difference since the guide knows his history and there is nothing you can't ask that he wouldn't know. Then we were lucky enough... More

On Monday evening, June 9th, the Out & About Group from Southshore Falls in Apollo Beach, FL went on the Ybor City Ghost Tour. We had 2 great tour guides, Greg & Joe. We had a great time! They taught us a lot about the history of Ybor & the paranormal activity there. Definitely an enjoyable evening! Perhaps it could... More

We had a great time on this tour. Greg did a fantastic job as a tour guide. My family and I learned a great deal about Ybor City's origins and past from Greg. We were able to go into a couple of buildings which was creepy and awesome. If you are considering doing a ghost tour in Ybor City, I... More

We have been on several ghost tours in the SE United States and this one was by far the best. Greg was an awesome guide and did a great job telling the stories. I really enjoyed the fact that we could go inside some of the buildings. Also it was really cool that Greg allowed the tour to evolve itself... More

We began our interest in ghost tours during a trip to Savannah. When we learned we'd be in Tampa, we came to Tripadvisor searching for a good ghost tour to book. The reviews on Tripadvisor pretty much rated this tour well above average so we decided to reserve spots for Sunday. We met Joe in front of King Corona Cigars... More

I booked this online and thought it better be pretty good. And it IS! Greg was our guide, and he has a fantastic ability to tell stories. He has a deep knowledge of the area and is easy to listen to. I'm from the Midwest, so I knew little to nothing about Ybor/Tampa,and this was a great way to find... More

My family loved the tour that Greg took us on!! He really brought the history of this area to life. Loved going into the Cuban Center where the Ghost Hunters filmed and doing a little "hunt" of our own of the basement and theater area. Definitely book this tour if you are in the Ybor city area!!!

If you like history and ghost stories you'll appreciate this tour. We had Greg as our tour guide and he is a great fellow! He did an excellent job painting pictures in words of the people and history of Ybor City. I had no idea such rich cultural and civic heritage existed in that region. Being from Oregon, we hear...
