My boyfriend and I had a tour with James, and he was amazing! James had the perfect combination of being witty and informative during our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the history of the Miami Beach area, and/or has an appreciation for historical architecture, art deco in particular of course.

We came across this tour reviewed on trip advisor and, despite having no knowledge of Art Deco we decided to book as something a bit different to do on a trip to Miami. We took the 5pm tour and were the only two on the tour. Despite our lack on knowledge our guide James was patient and spent time explaining... More

This is one of the best walking tours I have done in any city. I always like to do a walking tour on one of my first days to know a little bit about the city and I left this tour with so much new knowledge and it was fun to spend the rest of the trip finding art deco... More

The Art Deco area is not as large as you would think. It's really a " gem" of an area with quite a few old buildings that are constantly being rescued from total decay. As an Art History minor, I could really appreciate this special area of Miami Beach.

Thank you Kelly for a great experience. You have an amazing wealth of knowledge about the buildings of South Beach. The roof top part of the tour was particularly nice.

I recently took the tour with Christine; it was an amazing tour with lots of information to absorb but delivered in a very fun manner. I loved Christine's passion for the architecture and designs. I hope to back in Miami soon to do the cocktail tour. It was a bonus receiving an email with the highlights from the tour, hasta... More

My wife and I love to get the inside story on an area. John, our guide, was definitely our "inside" guide. There was just the right amount of everything, history, walking, interiors and stories. The two hours went quickly and we came away looking for identifying characteristics of Art Deco and fecal deco.; ) Absolutely a must do John was... More
