We went to the Art Deco centre on 10th street and purchased the $15 audio guide hand set for a guide yourself walking tour. The staff were excellent and the very nice lady from Manchester was most helpful, us Brits like to meet ex pats. The tapes were excellent and we learnt a great deal.

The Deco Tour is absolutely unexpected awesome! My friend and I both love it. James did a great job by introducing the history of Miami from 1920s to 2106. He also walked us around different Deco hotels and explain the Deco building in very detailed way. You feel you are going back to the old time and really enjoyable. We... More
