Interesting cultural history in Ybor City
Natica_L, May 2022
Parking was easy. Ashley was a good tour guide. You will get your steps in so wear good walking shoes. We had an early flight into Tampa before heading to the beach. The tour was at lunch time so it filled the void before checkin at the beach. Bonus, we were still full at dinner time.

Ybor tour
NormaJean_E, Mar 2022
Enjoyed the stories and architecture from Cindy. We learned a lot about the formation of Ybor. Thank you
Great area downtown Tampa!!
Whitney_M, Feb 2022
Cindy our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about Ybor History. The Ybor area is very interesting and there were LOTS of restaurants. We had a large group which was a challenge. I think this tour should be a little bit smaller to help accommodate adequate time for food. We were about 2 hours in before we had our first tasting and tour was scheduled to be 3 hours! Make sure you allot about 4 hours because I’m pretty sure there will be people who order drinks in addition to the food that is included. That can be annoying and it slows down the group. Other than the that I would highly recommend this tour for adults. Stopped at 3 restaurant total.

Response from Host, Oct 2021
Good Afternoon, We are so sorry for this oversight. We didn't have a booking on October 5, 2021 in our portal for that time. The only tour for that day was a group tour scheduled for a later time. We didn't receive a call from you during your wait as well. We would love to hear from you. Can you kindly give us a call at 813-408-1078. We want to offer a FREE Tour for you and your daughter along with 2 ADDITIONAL friends/family. We will await your call, and again we are so sorry for your experience we strive only for happy customers.

Our guide never showed up. Tour was cancelled. We were treated to the first stop. The food was good,
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Hi Barbie, We are so happy you were able to have complimentary drinks and meals at our 1st stop courtesy of Ybor City Food Tours. Due to an emergent issue, our Guide had to deter their travel in route to the tour to attend to those matters. We were more than happy to fully refund your tour along with offering a complimentary meal. We were told by the hosting restaurant that you and your Guests were very grateful and enjoyed themselves. We can't wait to see you on a future tour soon!
