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.

Calvin's a wealth of knowledge of the area and everyone of the places know him. I lived in Miami up until... 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

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
