We just finished up our tour and we had an amazing time. We learned a lot about a city that we visit often but knew very little about. I would highly recommend this tour if you’re wanting to learn about the rich and mixed culture of Ybor city.

Our guide was EXTREMELY knowledgeable! However, don't expect gourmet food. This is more of a history tour with food as an afterthought. Our guide was extremely well versed in the local history and I would recommend based on that alone. Just don't come for the food alone.
