Why hop on one of those cattle herd tour buses and get the quick glance and its gone tour of the art deco district when Christine Michaels puts on a customized private or small group tour for a reasonable price.. The cost was only $20 a person and we got 2 hours of informative architecture, history, and crime stories about... More

Christina really makes this walking trip exciting and interesting. She has a wonderfully unique way of describing the wonderful art deco of Miami South Beach, it's history, high and low points. Our visit to South beach would have been much less exciting, plus she pointed us to the best restuarants, best hotels and even got us free vouchers for drinks!... More

Christine's tour was one of our favorite experiences in Miami. She is a unique type of guide, much more invested in creating a worthwhile experience for her participants than any other tour guide I've ever known. She brought her tour guide extraordinaire arsenal with her, including an extra digital camera for the less prepared. (This was much appreciated by us,... More

After seeing the good reviews for this tour on TripAdvisor, I decided to contact Christine before we left and I'm so glad I did! My boyfriend and I went on a walking tour with Christine our first day in South Beach and the tour itself was great. We learned so much about South Beach history and art deco architecture. It...

We had a great two hours with Christine touring South Beach and learning the ins and outs of Miami History plus seeing all of the interesting architecture that this area is known for. Christine is a terrific and knowledgeable guide that enhanced our trip to Florida. I recommend taking advantage of her expertise! What a nice experience.

I visited Miami last weekend and used Trip Advisor as my primary source of information. After reading all the positive reviews about the Art Deco Walking Tour, I got into touch with Christine. She was very accomodating and arranged a tour for me and another lady for the next day. We did the twilight tour which departs around 6:30pm. It... More

My girlfriend and I have just returned from Miami after staying in the city for a week. After careful reading on this site, I opted to do this specific tour over the others. Really happy we did. We phoned the tour guide Christine a couple of days before and went for a tour that started at 7pm. Perfect for us... More

Christine was so informative of Miami, and brought the city to life for us. In addition, she accommodated our needs as my girlfriend was recovering from an injury and could not walk.

I enjoyed seeing more of South Beach than just the nightlife/party scene. Who knew there was so much history mixed in with the clubs & cafes that exist today. Christine was passionte about her tour and excited to share her in depth knowledge of the area. She made it fun, while we learned alot too. Ask her stop so you... More
