We did a two-hour-plus tour with James. From the reviews, we expected a great tour. It was better than that. James was an encyclopedia of information, with the style and presentation of an entertainer. He first gave us an introduction to Art Deco and the area we were about to see. Then we walked through the neighborhood as he taught... More

Embarked upon the Thursday evening walking tour of the Fabulous Art Deco district. Our tour guide provided us with a great history & interesting tidbits about Art Deco design. This is a tour not to be missed! So glad the city of Miami loves & adores the treasured buildings of the Art Deco era. More cities should preserve their historic... More

This was a wonderful tour. James provided information about Miami Beach history and architecture. The walk was not strenuous, but covered many buildings. We have a much better understanding of the area. We look forward to returning and trying another tour. Thank you, James!

We went on the walking tour with James. Our flight was changed last minute and Christine helped us to change the time of our tour which was great (Thank you!) The tour was just my friend and I. We learnt a lot about the history of Art Deco and the features in each building. We got to visit buildings and... More

I was looking for something informative to do in South Beach and was so pleased with this tour! James didn't limit the tour to architecture but included so much history about the city. Visiting different buildings and being able to go to the rooftops of exclusive hotels was a highlight! The two hours flew by, I could have stayed longer.... More

Even if you care not about architecture overall---and art deco architecture, specifically---the amount of history and just solid fun that comes from this tour cannot be overstated. Can't recommend it enough. -Bill Schulz

We did this 2 hour walking tour on a rainy day end January. It is very well organized, very entertaining and we learnt a lot. The guide pointed out details and made us experts in art deco. Very recommendable.

The tour operator cancelled the walking tour less than an hour before the start time, apparently due to low booking numbers. I was already en route to the meeting point, having scheduled my trip and planned my day around the tour, and I only happened to receive the cancellation when I checked my email (using roaming data) as I was...

Christine M, Manager at Art Deco Walking Tour, responded to this review

Dear Susannah, Again we apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Our tours are very popular for the fact that we only take small groups maximum 6-8 people for a personal, interactive and memorable tour with access to more building interiors vs a large group herded like sheep. While extremely rare, it so happened we did not have enough participants the... More
