Great. One of the best features, you meet and start off at the Art Deco museum where you get a historical backdrop from browsing and an introductory talk. You are provided with a headphone so you can hear the guide at all times. And this tour seems to be one of the more affordable ones. Just a good value and great tour.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area's architectural history and was extremely accommodating to everyone. Despite living here for 40+ years her enthusiasm for South Beach hasn't died down one bit! If you're a buff for building design, this tour is a must! Plus, you'll be doing the area a service since all proceeds go to preservation groups.
