TAMPA and ST. PETERSBURG are cities awakening to its own special beauty, as Miami did in the late 70’s-early 80’s. They are hosting an increasing number of movies and commercial shots as its generous coastline and harbors have some of the most beautiful inlets, beaches, and villages in the area, such as Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, New Port Richey and others.

Enjoy Ybor City in Tampa, which is more significant and older than the Cuban community of Miami. Heritage is preserved through language, food, tobacco, and, of course, museums. It is home to tobacco shops and restaurants, which makes every excursion an adventure.

We are bringing a new awareness of the rich culture that these areas offer. Our tours are only private. Pick up will be at either the port, hotel, or airport. Any other point must be pre arranged at least two days in advance. Drop off need not be the same. All guests are received with a bottle of water per person.

Join our professional tour guides and drivers as you explore the cities on a walking or riding tour, museum crawl or on a photographic adventure. We will customize any tour within the specified time contracted, and we have so many choices within one hour of these cities.

Experience the area that is fast becoming the next IN place in Florida.
