Calvin was our tour guide and he provided so much interesting information about all the various hotels and structures in the district. He was able to gain access to some of the private roofs of exclusive hotels to see the amazing views of... More

James was our guide as my daughter and I took the walking tour. His knowledge and wit were outstanding. We had a small group of six and were able to see many art deco hotels as well as the Wolfsonian Museum lobby. James shared information about Miami's rich cultural history as well.

Flavia was knowledgeable and fun. We might have had a different experience b/c our group of 4 had her to ourselves, so it was basically a private tour. We knew nothing about Little Havana or its history, so Flavia gave us lots of info. We had a terrific lunch followed by Cuban coffee. Flavia had great suggestions for things to... More

I called to see whether they were able to reschedule the tickets I purchased the day before due to my boyfriend falling ill and to my surprise they said "No" and stated that it was "policy". For such a small tour and a small company, they should be flexible enough to reschedule 2 people to another time. They requested that... More

Stefanie, As the owner of a small business, the decision to uphold our policy is not a light one. Having worked in small nonprofit organizations to worldwide corporations, I have learned that nothing is black and white and decisions should be made on a case by case basis. This was done in your case. Unfortunately there is no way to... More

James was our guide for the Cocktail Walking tour of Miami Beach. James' knowledge of Miami history and the Art Deco style was phenomenal. He was able to answer our questions and teach us so much, I have a much better sense of Miami Beach and Miami as a result. The cocktails were also fantastic, and not too much. I... More

This was a lovely way to enjoy a few hours in South Beach. It really opened our eyes to the details of this beautiful area. There was a little history, a little architecture, a little chilled beverage on top of a beachfront hotel... James was very organised and made everything interesting, answered all of our questions, and was just a... More

Having travelled from Orlando to spend just a few days in Miami Beach we wanted a tour that would give us some history of the place and show us the Art Deco area - this is exactly what this tour and James did. He was incredibly knowledgable, very personable, kept the 'pace' just right and engaged all members of our... More

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.
