Throughly enjoyed this walking tour. Learnt lots about the the architecture, buildings and Miami. The guide was very informative and passionate about art deco
The tour lasted 90 minutes and covered both the exteriors and some interiors so allowed us to avoid the rain showers. The pace was easy and there were opportunities to sit down at regular intervals.

A great way of learning and seeing a lot of architecture in a short amount of time.

While anybody can walk up / down South Beach not everyone will find out the "whys" and "whos" about the buildings and their relationships to Miami and various architectural trends

Really professional and fun Art Deco Tour.
I highly recommend it to discover Miami Beach.
We did this tour with my girlfriend because we wanted to understand the Art Deco mouvement and how was it set up.

Am now a deco-evangelist. Even went on my own tour the next day following up on the tips given by excellent tour guide Kent. Will no doubt be paying ridiculous prices to stay in the Tides or Palmer House(Dream) in the future. Should be a MDPL TAX ON ALL DRINKS , FOOD AND ACCOMODATION IN SOBE!!!
