John gave us a great tour of the area.

We were part of a group of six people. The small group size meant that John could take us into hotels to see lobbies and rooftops and discuss the history of the hotel. Clearly, some careful negotiation by Christine has paid off.

During the two and 1/2 hour tour, we had lots of time for photographs and looking around.

The attention before and after the tour is extra special. Even just today, she sent a note documenting the tour to remind us of what we saw. That's really helpful.

Highly recommended.

We just took this tour for the second time and enjoyed it even more than the first! Our guide was great. Very informative and attentive to our needs. I grew up here and saw things I never knew about. This is a great tour!

Hi Christine,

I really enjoyed my tour with Robert.
Robert was informative and the information was made very enjoyable.
I liked that Robert was very conversational and did not mind answering my many (!) questions.
I learnt a lot from the tour - such interesting history on Art Deco and Miami beach.
It was the highlight of my time at Mimi Beach.

Please thank Robert for being such a fabulous guide and I will definitely recommend him to everyone!

Cheers
Jackie

South Beach has many great buildings to look at but do you know the histroy behind them? There is nothing like a local to give you an insider's view of this area. You get to see things you would never even notice on own your own and the best part is you get to ask questions about anything that comes to mind regarding the area, the buildings, the history, the people, the food, etc.etc.. My best advice is to go on this tour as soon as you get to South Beach and the rest of your time there will be much more enjoyable.
