My wife & I went on the 2 hour Art Deco walking tour with tour guide James. He was personable, witty, and did an excellent job of bringing Miami Beach's rich history into the tour. For all you architecture buffs, he is also quite knowledgeable about the people and societal details that made the Art Deco movement what it was.... More

James was our guide - he was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun. It was just my daughter (age 9) and me on the 10:00 am tour and we had a great time. I loved the background stories that James shared and was taken aback by the hidden rooms and their history. A definite must do when in Miami Beach.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with James. His tour was both entertaining and informative. We both love history, and James truly bought it to life. His passion for Art Deco and Miami Beach came through in so many ways as he showed us one interesting detail after another. James is a story-teller par excellence. Our time with... More

James was an excellent guide to the Art Deco buildings of South Beach Miami. Who could have believed that it could be so interesting and buildings were just beautiful. With all the knowledge that we acquired through James's anecdotes, descriptions and history we looked at the place with a completely different set of eyes. Just as beneficial - we found... More

During my first ever visit to Miami Beach, I signed up for the Art Deco Tour. My guide was James and for approximately 2 hours he led us around the historic Art Deco district in South Beach. James was very knowledgeable about not only the history of the district but also about the architectural and design elements of the various... More

James provided us with an interesting and lively tour of the Art Deco section of Miami Beach. The history of Miami (good and bad) covering from its beginning to the present day was interweaved into the walking tour. Impressive access to hotels and bars that the person on the street wouldn't have.

Calvin Zook is a tourist guide treasure! He has 50 years living in Miami and loves to explain the history of the city, the Art Deco scene and many of the important people. We did the walking tour and then the next day did the tour in an antique car (another great choice). Given the option we would have done... More
