“What a Delightful and Informative Afternoon in Miami Beach!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed being part of a four person Art Deco tour of Miami Beach with John as our guide. We learned so much and loved being on rooftops of hotels, hearing the fascinating history of Miami Beach, and seeing the many aspects of Art Deco hotels.

John is an articulate, knowledgeable guide with tons of energy and a great sense of humor.
The time flew by and we learned a ton!
Keep up the great work!

“Fun and Great Info”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

If you're staying in Miami, you've probably heard the term "Art Deco," but what does that really mean? Our tour guide, John, took us to some neat spots, taught us about art deco, and the history of Miami, while we had a lot of fun!

This tour is also a great intro to the area. John pointed out a few spots for us to check out later. We will definitely return to several places on the tour later in our stay, like the public roof top at the Palmer Hotel.

“Best Tour!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I've been to Miami many times, have wandered the art deco hotels and really had no idea what it was all about... until this tour! Loved the insight John provided on the history of the area, the cocktails are tasty and the destinations are true gems. I highly recommend this as a unique view of SoBe!

“Art Deco Walking Tour”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Marty was great! He was very patient, as traffic delayed us. He was very informative, and the group really enjoyed his stories. They even continued to speak of him, and his tour during the dinner, which means he left a great lasting impression on them! Thank you again, and if my events bring be back to south Florida, I'll be sure to let you know!
Thank you.

“Unique experience”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

It is rare to get to see the Art Deco hotels in a downpour but , in spite of that, John made the experience memorable, informative and great fun. While we were offered a rain check, we chose to continue the tour and our tour guide, in spite of the cold and wet, kept us interested and amused. I have had a place in Miami Beach for 16 years and have gone in and out of many of the hotels on the tour but never knew the history behind them.
I will direct all our visitors to this tour from now on.
