Fascinating and Tasty Ybor City

Three cheers for Kristie. Thanks for an enjoyable day learning about the history and culture and ethnic foods of this amazing neighborhood. Thanks also for taking time for our ultra small group. We were enthralled with the history and fascinated by the buildings and memorials of important past leaders and the roles that the social groups played in the every day life of Ybor City. The foods we shared celebrated those ethnic groups and were delicious. From the German beer to the Cuban sandwiches to the Sicilian pizza, we savored every bite. We completed our tour enriched and fulfilled and tired. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon.

A Walk Through YBor City.

Back since Covid-19, I’m sure the tours will improve with time. For example, we were a tour of two people and at times had difficulty hearing our guide due to street noise, music especially in the restaurants - perhaps a portable PA system would help. We were disappointed that our first stop learning about the German immigrants and we’re fed Buffalo chicken wings - how about brots or sausage - something German. Same with Italian immigrants- N.Y. pizza (while good) was not imported by Italians. Our guide had some good anecdotes and stories but more could be included as we’re walking. The trolley history and ride is a nice inclusion. The Columbia restaurant has a unique history and instead of looking at it from a block away we should visit at least the gift shop or have a manager give a little spiel about its history the same with The Cuban bread is there a bakery still in use? It would be nice to go into many of the buildings being talked about. Our tour was over 4 hours mostly due to wait times for foods. We chose this tour for its combination of foods and cultural history a great combination but needs fine tuning. Worth taking to get an overview of YBor city but needs more authenticity on the food side.

Not really a food tour

Our guide was very nice and knowledgable but this tour lasted far too long. We were hungry, hot, and tired after walking in the sun for 3 hours so we left the tour early in search of a real meal. In 3 hours we only visted three restaurants which gave small portions. The food was mediocre. There was not much food involved on this "food tour." It was more of a historical walking tour, which is fine but it should be advertised as such. Would not recommend as a food tour. Would not recommend for children or people who would dehydrate quickly.

I have been on other food tours...

I have been on other food tours through Viator so I have something to compare against. This tour had so many problems I don't know where to start. 1 The scheduled start time at booking was 12:30PM. I received a text the morning of the tour indicating the tour was going to start at 2:30PM. No reason given, the weather was fine. I truly believe since we were the only 2 people on this tour for that day the start time was changed to get us to cancel. The food portion consisted of 1st stop - 2 chicken wings, 2nd stop - one slice of cheese pizza, 3rd stop - very tiny Cuban sandwich, 4th stop - beans and rice. We did not get to the 5th stop because we had started so late the restaurant WAS CLOSED for the day so we were handed a bag with desert in it. You can do way better by stopping at the Ybor history center, watching the film like we did on the tour it's free walk to the points of interest and then have a nice meal for about half the price charged for the tour. I rarely complain but this tour is a rip off. Totally dissatisfied!
