It wasn’t that great, basically you heard a speech on history of Ybor. No ghost stories and you were only able to go inside the Theater and that’s all. It was not worth the money!

Max was fantastic. The history lesson was entertaining, not boring at all. We drove from Naples just to do this tour and it was well worth it. The price is right and we met new people. I highly recommend this tour.
