Went on the evening tour with Chris who was a great guide, fun, knowledgable and interesting. Loved the history and going inside all the hotels, a bonus which they are able to do due to only taking small groups (there were just 4 of us). Really loved the tour and felt that Chris our tour guide enjoyed sharing all the... More

My mother and I loved this tour! Our tour guide, John, was fun, kind, enthusiastic, full of fascinating info, patient, and just a wonderful host. And we got free goodies at a few of the hotels -- and unexpected treat! It was really neat learning about the architecture and history -- on foot! I recommend this tour to all of... More

James is an excellent guide and provided a great insight into Miami Beach of an earlier era. What a passion he has for the area !!... More

My wife and I hosted a visitor from Myanmar recently and the three of us took the South Beach Art Deco tour one morning with Christine. We could not have had a better or more interesting morning as Christine proved both knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Art Deco district in South Beach and her connections allowed us...

We took a 10AM Art Deco walk with James and had a wonderful private tour! James explanations about art deco and South beach made the difference. We saw beautiful hotel interiors and roof top views! I highly recommend his tour, you will appreciate the architecture, history and culture so much more.

My daughter and son in law visited Miami 3 years ago and came back raving about the Art Deco walking tour and said to make sure I booked it with Calvin as the tour guide. Well they were right. Calvin's a wealth of knowledge of the area and everyone of the places know him. I lived in Miami up until... More

Greetings George! Welcome back to Miami! Your timing could not be more perfect. Calvin had retired for past couple of years and literally just returned to work couple of weeks ago at the perky age of 75. He is literally a walking encyclopedia and has not forgotten a single detail of the past 50 years. He has seen it and... More

We went on the Art Deco Tour last Friday with James. It was informative, interesting and James's passion for Miami Beach and Art Deco architecture is obvious and contagious. James took us in and out of several hotels and even to a couple of roof top bars (some of which required a special pass which James had, not sure if... More

Guide Chris excellent. We took 5:30 tour. Chris's knowledge of Art Deco and history of Miami and how the two mesh most helpful and interesting. Strong recommendation.

James was our guide and he made it such a great experience for us. He was so knowledgeable and shared so many anecdotes with us, it made the discovery extra special. Visiting Miami was for us about Art Deco and we were not disappointed! We saw South beach and appreciated it differently after the tour. I would highly recommend this... More
