We didn't know what to expect, but likely thought we would learn 1 or 2 facts and thereby feel like we accomplished something. James our tour guide made this an unbelievably memorable, interesting, and fascinating experience. We will never look at buildings the same way again. It was really fun and highly enlightening. Strongly recommend!

I arranged my tour with Christine... More

Tour guide James Cubby kept us captivated in this 2.5 hour tour that included really interesting history of Miami Beach as well as Art Deco architecture history. My grandson (and I) loved hearing the ups and downs of the city and how it was revitalized. I feel very grateful to the woman who started the movement to save these beauties... More
