On a scale of 1--5, I'd give James a 10! We love to take walking tours when we travel, and this was no doubt one of the best ever.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Calvin - it was the highlight of our time in Miami. He was not only knowledgeable but also kind, and it was clear that people in every art deco hotel know him. We enjoyed seeing both the interior and exterior and all the historical details he gave us. We rate it 5 stars.

We were very lucky to have Calvin the tour guide just for the 2 of us. He is very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. He also manages to get into lots of the hotels, seeing parts that you wouldn't usually get to see. Recommend this tour!

He seems to really enjoy giving the tour, and has genuine passion for the subject. His demeanor is cheerful and engaging. A fine tour guide and a great tour. I rate it a solid 5, highest... More

Our guide James was great and very knowledgable! If you have any interest at all about these beautiful buildings go on this tour! The rooftop access was an incredible opportunity because our hotel did not have a roof terrace and the views were great!

We wanted to wait till we returned to the UK before giving our feedback I hate writing long reviews on a tablet. James was outstanding, and provided without doubt one of the best tours we have ever been on. Unexpectedly we were his only guests which made it even better, like a fully private event. He set the scene initially... More

We had an an amazing time with James our guide for the Art Deco walking tour. He was incredibly knowledgable, answered all of our questions and showed us some spots we would not have been able to get into without him. (Rooftop bar at the Cleavlander - epic!) We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend it to anyone... More
