What you'll do

We'll meet at an espresso cafe in Hyde Park and walk to University of Tampa and explore the area while I explain its history then walk over the bridge to Riverwalk while I explain how Tampa was founded, it's traditional festivals and the great strides it's made in the last 25 years. We will go to Remedy for an outdoor view and aperol spritz and an appetizer To enjoy with the sunset view~ Then walk to Four Green Fields (a very traditional Irish pub) for a beverage of choice and traditional beer battered Fish and Chips. Then we will walk to a couple historic venues and choose another restaurant to enjoy a beverage of choice and an appetizer! This is a great way to get some exercise while on your trip and see the city! I will also have many recommendations of other places to visit while you are here not to mention more history of Tampa! It can be modified to fit the group if necessary...foods and drinks with sensitivities and the long walk. Jump in!!!

I've owned my own restaurant/bar/espresso businesses starting 30 years ago and I am also a world traveler! Tampa has wonderful hidden gems and fantastic places to watch the sunset and have a Aperol spritz, craft cocktail or craft beer! The restaurants have become top notch and the historic ones still shine! Come with me and let me take you on a fantastic walk through beautiful neighborhoods and downtown Tampa while I explain our history and fun events we are known for. We will stop at some of the best places for a refreshing beverage and some delicious foods to share and finish up at a unique espresso cafe that originated in 1994 in Tampa via Seattle. If you are booking on the 1st, 3rd, or last Sunday of the month I will be taking you to a traditional Irish Session and If you play Irish music, join in the circle

This is NOT a food tour. It took 45 minutes of Jessica talking about herself before we even made it to our first stop. It went downhill from there. Run, don't walk, to ANY other food I don't know about any of them, but I bet they're all better than this one.

I am a first time visitor to Tampa as an adult. I have been here once as a child for a wedding but it was brief and many moons ago thus my memory of that weekend is forgotten. This experience with Jessica as been nothing but a breath of fresh air. She really made me feel at home and like we were friends who met ages ago. Though it was simply myself on the tour, she still gave an in-depth eating, drinking and knowledge filled tour. I stated to her that I would not have visited some of the places we went to as I do not know the area and some of the places, had I visited them, I would have not thought to think to look at certain structures. All in all, it is a tour I would recommend to the next. Wishing her many more successful tours to come and a very prosperous time while doing so! Happy Thursday!

It was a lovely tour. Jessica was absolutely amazing detailing all about the history of Tampa and sharing some of the finest restaurants and bars. Definitely, a worthy tour for anyone who wants to know about the city.

Great experience with Jessica. We walked to an iconic building on the University of Tampa campus, before hitting some popular spots for food and drinks. It was a great way to learn a little about the city and where to dine or go out for the rest of our trip.
