We recently spent three nights in Miami and a friend recommended we do the Art Deco Private Cocktail Tour. We didn't need much persuading. We both like art deco and we both like to drink so it was a no brainer for us. It was our first night in Miami and we had driven down from Orlando. I had thought... More

I cannot recommend this tour enough to anyone visiting Miami / South Beach. It is the must do tour! When you think of Miami you do think of Art Deco style and this is THE tour to take. Not the typical tour where you get talked at the whole time, you get to actually sit down and enjoy the hotels... More

I really enjoyed this tour! I've always been interested in architecture so this was very interesting to learn about the Art Deco design and it's history in Miami. Also, considering the high prices of drinks in South Beach, this tour is a great deal!

We were drinking delicious cocktails in the beautiful interiors of the local hotels and bars. While walking John told us many interesting... More

So glad we took the time for this tour. This was a small group of four, which made it possible to ask questions and interact, not only with the tour guide, John, but also the other two tour members. Learn a lot, while enjoying signature drinks.

Book this tour early in your South Beach stay, if possible. We met our tour guide, John, at the appointed time and found out my wife and I would be the only two on the evening's tour. Four others previously booked had cancelled, and I can tell you, it was their loss! John didn't hesitate and proceeded to give us... More

Hello Tad! Thank you for the high praise. It does make a difference in taking this tour at the beginning of your trip so one can get a proper introduction to South Beach that it will have so much meaning as you stroll, walk and absorb the neighborhood. "If these buildings could talk..." Well they do! We explain the fundamentals... More

We stumbled upon this tour while planning our long-weekend getaway to Miami Beach - and so glad we did! It is a small group tour (max of 10), but the other group scheduled that day had to cancel so we had a private tour with John! John was a terrific guide, giving us just enough history and plenty of space... More
