I must admit, I foolishly went into this tour with low expectations. I was completely unaware of the paranormal possibilities Ybor City had to offer, but I suppose that's the point of taking a tour, isn't it? Learning some new things! And I sure did! I'm a ghost tour guide myself in another city, and I was totally impressed by... More

This is a definite MUST, when you're in Tampa. The Official Ybor Ghost Tour lived up to its hype. Charlie eloquently shared the intriguing history about Ybor's vibrant and wild west type past and the characters who lived there. We got to use an EMF reader inside a building that has had some strange occurrences. Everyone's meters were going off.... More

In addition to being the only ghost tour I have ever been on to give me my own EMF reader (equipment used by ghost hunters), the tour itself was informative, historical...and spooky! It was $50 / person, which can be interpreted as steep, but our ghost guide was AMAZING and although the tour is only scheduled for two hours, we... More

My husband and I have done ghost tours in many different cities. We enjoy learning the history of the area, and we always like hearing ghost stories. This tour was awesome. Charlie was our tour guide, and he was right on time, actually several minutes early. He called me to make sure I was still on for the night and... More

Went on the Saturday evening tour with Greg. First things first- Greg is an outstanding tour guide and historian. We could not have asked for a better guide. The best thing about this tour is that you actually get to go on a real ghost hunt! The tour lasted over 2 hours and the last hour or more was spent... More

I've done a couple of ghost tours, and this is one of the better ones. I learned so much about Ybor's dark history and even caught a couple of weird things on my phone's camera (which has never happened to me in any ghost tour). Greg was a very good guide, and we were provided EMF readers. I would recommend... More

A group of us from Canada went on the tour tonight. Charlie was our tour guide for the evening. He's such a gifted orator - well versed in the history of Ybor City. His retelling was all the more special because of his family's deep historical connection to the city. We had a lively night. The lot of us seemed... More

I went in July for my birthday. Our tour guide was awesome. He was a great storyteller and you could tell he was very well-versed in Ybor City history. The tour lasted 2 hours and I was completely hooked on every word from start to finish. We walked around the city and visited different buildings, each with a really dark... More

Awesome Tour last night (Sunday, Sep 6, 2015)! Joe was incredible with his deep historical knowledge of Ybor. We learned so much and our meters were going WILD inside the Cuban Club. As we entered the inside theatre doorway, I had a flashlight pointed on the ground and really concentrated on making sure I was staring at the floor and... More
