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

We went last night and spent almost two and one-half hours hearing the stories and history of Ybor City. Our guide Joe was especially informative ans entertaining. You can easily tell how much he enjoys his time telling others about this area and ghostly encounters. We have been on several ghost tours over the years, but what made this one... More

I purchased a Groupon for the Ybor City Ghost Tour after checking with the company website that the date we wanted was available. I immediately attempted to reserve a spot after purchase and the website wouldn't accept the voucher number. I called the next day and was told there was no space available. I explained the situation, that I was... More

We regret this person had a problem using the Groupon. The groupon reads "subject to availability" per groupon's requirement. Certainly would be easier if they had indicated that the Groupon is valid Sunday - Thursday, instead. Aimee's instructions are to pass on the info for whom this is a problem, She has never been instructed not to. We have made... More

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
