Our guide, Joe Howden, called several hours before our tour was scheduled (8 PM on 2/27) and told my son and me of several cancellations, leaving only the two of us still scheduled. I prepared myself for him to cancel our much anticipated tour, but instead he eagerly agreed to keep our appointment. And I am SO thankful he did. Joe is a unique, passionate combination of historian, storyteller, 20 year Ybor resident, entertainer, metaphysicist, and, yes, believer. Believer or not, if you like history and well researched stories, you should prepare yourself for a treat. I now feel a part of Ybor City, knowing how it came to be and 'meeting' some of the fascinating characters that have lived and died there. I cannot recommend this tour enough.
