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!

It ended up just being the guide and I. Charlie made it very comfortable and interesting. I had an amazing time appreciated that he took the time to still do the tour even though no one else came along.

What a great time I had on the Halloween Tour! As expected, the Halloween tour is the most crowded all year and our group's guide did an excellent job of keeping all 45 of us inline. The history of Ybor is very fascinating and I can't imagine another tour that would allow us not only to gain access to buildings... More

It is hard for me to write a review of the ghost tour because I actually did not go on it but let me explain. First THEY changed our night from Saturday to Friday but they adjusted the start time to accommodate us. We were SUPPOSED to have our own tour guide, Charles, for our group of 16, with a... More

I have not been on a ghost tour before but I have to think that this one goes above and beyond anything else you could find in town. Our guide, Charlie, was excellent. He was so knowledgeable and answered all of my crazy questions. The history that he gives on the tour is great. You actually feel like you are... More

Ybor is one of Tampa Bay's oldest area's of town. And thanks to our tour guide, Charlie, my girlfriend and I know a lot more about it's very interesting history! Of course it is just this history that makes the "Ghost" part of the tour so much more interesting. If you can book a tour during the week you are... More
