Max was EXCELLENT! His intellect and passion for the city were pleasantly surprising, and I was engaged the entire time. It was a fantastic use of the limited time we had in Ybor. This tour is a must do (especially with Max)!

Max is the man he really knows his stuff and didn't bore us. Made a loop around Ybor and he let us into some cool stuff. Learned some cool facts about the city and would definitely do it again!

Max Herman was our guide, and he did an awesome job of telling and showing the history of this place. He has so much enthusiasm and joy in his commentary as he walked us through the area for about 1 1/4 hours..

I’ve taken the tour with Lonnie twice now and with Max once. It’s a must do anytime family comes to visit. They do a tremendous job making the stories come to life all while skillfully keeping you in the best shady spots-very enjoyable!
