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 Cafe and after gathering the rest of the tour, we began our walk. We had beautiful weather with a great breeze and cool temps but I doubt that warmer weather would have changed our ratings of the tour.
The walk is pleasant, unhurried, and not terribly long. The group was a total of 9 and that included Joe the guide. We all had a lot of fun, especially with the investigations using EMF meters. Photos are encouraged and lend to the investigative feel. Joe our guide was quite the storyteller with a good delivery and a great sense of his audience. He was very polite and well studied in the history of Ybor city and some of its most interesting citizens. We were out for around 3 hours or so but the time went pretty quickly.
I highly recommend this tour. Even if you are not a believer in ghosts, the history was highly interesting and entertaining. I think you'll have a great time.
