Very knowledgeable guide, Jason, who shared the Cuban connection to Ybor. We visited the distillery and brewery and had a great time...loved the orange infused Vodka!!!🙃 The architecture in this city is spectacular and the city streets are very inviting.

Had a wonderful day today in Ybor. We had a guided tour, Ybor’s mafia and historic tour! It was the absolute best! Our tour leader was Tom. Tom’s passion and knowledge of Ybor’s history was so uplifting! I have lived in the Tampa area for 30 plus years and learned more about Ybor city in one afternoon then all my time living here. 5 stars to this tour! Great Day out. Thanks.

We recently visited Tampa and went on this tour, it was great! My grandmother moved to Tampa in 1918, married and had her children there. During the tour Max talked about events and places that my grandmother had told me about. It was so exciting to see history that I felt a real connection to. The stories of the immigrants, how they lived, worked and provided for their families were fascinating. The history of how the tobacco industry started in Tampa from its roots in Cuba was so interesting. The architecture is incredible, so many buildings have been saved in their original form. The Circulo Cubano building is not to be missed if you enjoy architecture. Max even discussed the involvement of the Mafia in Tampa during the 1930's, not to be missed!!

We did our tour with Steve today! He’s very knowledgeable and great at story telling. Allow time for a longer tour as he goes in thorough detail of some of the most legendary tales of Ybor. We really enjoyed our time! It’s worth the money.
