Tampa, Florida

Tour of Tampa (Local Style)

with Israel J.

Let me take you on a tour of Tampa and show you some of the history of the city I call home. As a third generation Tampanian I have an extensive knowledge of Tampa that only us locals know. But don't think of me as a tour guide, think of me as a friend in a city you are visiting. Meaning I am completely flexible in my route and the items places I can take you. If you want to focus on food, I can do that. If history is your thing, I can tell you about our great past. Are you a photographer? I can show you where to get some great shots. Or if you just want to get a feel for what Tampa is about, I'll take you to some of our famous sites and a few of my personal favorites. I'll custom build a stroll through our downtown just for you.

• Although I will be more than happy to show you some of my favorite spots, if you would like to purchase any goods, food or beverages you must pay for them separately.

My name is Izzy and I am a third generation Tampanian. That is a rare thing considering the majority of our residence are transplants who moved here for a job, our warm tropical climate, or perhaps a little of both. It is also the reason I think most people don't know a lot about my city. The biggest misconception people have about Tampa is that is a bland city with no history or culture. Nothing could be further from the truth and I hope to dispel this notion by showing off everything Tampa has. From its history with the mafia, to political connections, from our native food (The world famous Cuban Sandwich) to our nickname (The Cigar City), Tampa is full of culture. Let me show you what it looks like from a locals point of view. There is no way to get to know a city better than by experiencing it as its citizens do! Full profile Leave a Review
