Electric Glide Tours
Ybor City was founded in 1886, when cigar manufacturer Vicente Martínez Ybor moved his factory from Key West to the area currently known as Tampa’s Latin Quarter. Martínez Ybor's legacy lives on today in the fragrant smoke that unfurls from the area’s cigar shops and George Burns impersonators. Meanwhile, a mix of Cuban, Spanish, and Italian clubs add a lively beat to the city’s cultural landscape.
Fueled by the desire to open others up to the sights, sounds, and history of this rich city, Electric Glide Tours stocked up on a fleet i2 Segway models, leading one- and two-hour urban jaunts filled with historical factoids and eye-grabbing scenery. Tourists can even make pit stops at the birthplace of the pressed Cuban sandwich on Electric Guide Tours’ guided tours of the city. While the company specializes in Ybor City adventures, their guides can also craft custom tours—dubbed “Red Carpet Tours”—of locations such as South Tampa and Old Hyde Park.
