“A highlight of Miami Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Hi Christine,

I really enjoyed my tour with Robert.
Robert was informative and the information was made very enjoyable.
I liked that Robert was very conversational and did not mind answering my many (!) questions.
I learnt a lot from the tour - such interesting history on Art Deco and Miami beach.
It was the highlight of my time at Mimi Beach.

Please thank Robert for being such a fabulous guide and I will definitely recommend him to everyone!

Cheers
Jackie

“Don't just look, learn and enjoy it more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

South Beach has many great buildings to look at but do you know the histroy behind them? There is nothing like a local to give you an insider's view of this area. You get to see things you would never even notice on own your own and the best part is you get to ask questions about anything that comes to mind regarding the area, the buildings, the history, the people, the food, etc.etc.. My best advice is to go on this tour as soon as you get to South Beach and the rest of your time there will be much more enjoyable.

“Art Deco District came alive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Our gathering of friends from both coasts recently went on the Miami Art Deco tour and we thought John was excellent. I go on a lot of walking tours (and am a docent in Oakland) and appreciated his passion as well as knowledge. I'm only sorry we didn't have time to go on the cocktail tour!

“Don't wait...take this tour early in your vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

When you can get an introduction to the area you will visit by people who know the history, the culture, the architecture, the best places to eat at or visit....for a reasonable price...this was amazing! Our tour guide John was really great! Very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and what it has to offer. We learned about the Art Deco design and its use in the architecture in the historic district. We loved access to rooftops and found great places we will return to that we would never have found without John! He knows where to get the best drinks too!
