We toured with James Cubby who provided us with an extremely educational and interesting walking tour of Ocean Drive's historic buildings. He had fun side stories about the history of Miami Beach and proudly shared that history with us. The drinks were delicious and James took us to places we, as tourists would have typically missed, then pointed out the... More

This Tour was just outstanding!! A diverse group composed of 4 different parties (8 people in all) seemed to be just the right fit for the Tour. We were guided splendidly by James Cubby, an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic resident of the area. James also works as a writer and has published a book with regard to South Beach so...

Admiring Art Deco I was particularly keen to do a walking tour & get some of history to the glorious buildings on Ocean Drive, some walking tours can be hard work in that you're bombarded with facts, theres too many around to hear the guide or its just spoiled by being too long - this tour is an exception.

We tend not to participate in tours, but our neighbors recommended the walking tour. We decided this was more our speed. We enjoyed walking around the Art Deco district, and learning more about the history of the buildings. The stories were great, and we appreciated the summary email to help jog our memories.

Four of us spend the weekend in South Beach and wanted something fun to do. My husband stumbled upon this on Tripadvisor and I am so glad he did! The tour started out with a Front Porch Lemonade, introductions and a little history. It was a little windy and threatening to rain but it wasn't quite yet...on to the next... More

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
