Well worth it to do on your vacation here in Miami. The tour gave excellent insight into the architecture and history of the city. I enjoyed the tour very much. It was a bit $$$$ for the 90 minutes. For 25.00 each, they should have provided a refreshment at least. I expected a bit more on this tour. We only... More

Really enjoyed our Art Deco Walking Tour of South Beach, Miami. Our guide, Calvin, was funny and informative, and reminded us of Woody Allen. He took us inside old hotels, up on the rooftops, down in the basement, into back rooms and bars, suggested great bathrooms and back and forth across Ocean Avenue. There were five total guests on the... More

Our tour was the best I have ever been on! It was a gre4at adventure and our guide Calvin was just amazing! He took us for a leisurely stroll around the South Beach area past some of the most famous buildings and onto the rooftops of others. It was definitely the high light of our Miami stay!

We had already been driving and walking around south beach before we met the tour that ended up just being just my husband and I. We learned so much that we just would have never known... About architecture, the history of the area and we would have walked by the Versace mansion without realizing it. The guide (Robert I believe)... More

I joined this tour as a single lady and was made to feel welcome from the beginning. There were ten of us and the tour took two hours. Calvin was so interesting and had many tales to tell of Ocean Drive in the 20's and 30's as well as the 1980's and 90's. He took us into many wonderful buildings... More

very entertaining and informative architectural tour by this older gentleman. His personal story of living in SoBe through the stages of its neglect and renaissance will not be forgotten. The best part of our stay in SoBe.
