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

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
