This was our first visit to Miami and I am so glad we opted to take the Art Deco tour. Booking from the UK was very straight forward. Our tour guide was John and he was very knowledgable and made the evening interesting and entertaining. He was also able to recommend excellent restaurants along the way. We also met some lovely people on the tour and the small group size made it feel less like an organised tour. I have learnt so much about Art Deco and the history of Miami. It was also our Anniversary and stopping for Sangria en route was an added bonus! An excellent evening all round, thank you Christine and John.

We have traveled all over the world and done tours in Egypt, Central America, Europe etc. and this was another interesting tour. A 2-hr tour with John which was both interesting and entertaining. His knowledge and attention to both the details he was describing and to what we wanted to know and see made this a very nice, fun, and educational trip. And to get a follow-up email with further details of the venues we'd visited was great and a very nice 'added-value' touch. Would highly recommend this tour to others

Very similar experiences to most others here. A 2-hr tour with John which was both interesting and entertaining. I went with my 20 and 17 year old daughters who also enjoyed the tour, which says a lot. And to get a follow-up email with further details of the venues we'd visited was great and a very nice 'added-value' touch. Would highly recommend this tour to others.

Our tour with John was amazing. He shared so much information and interesting sites. And to top it off, the next day we received an email with notes from the whole tour. It made me appreciate the Art Deco history even more than before. I also recommend the late afternoon tour so it is cooler outside. But whatever you do, don't miss this one!

There a few tours of South Beach...this one is a MUST DO!!!!
There are a few time options to choose from...I recommend the late afternoon one - 17h30...its cooler outside!!
We texted Christine (her details from tripadvisor)..she called us back and made our booking.
Christine met us at the Astor Hotel on Washington Ave...we were introduced to another couple who would join us. We had a short chat to familiarise ourselves with each other as the tour is 2h15 long.
We started our walk, visited amazing places, beautiful art deco buildings which have some original art, original furniture, original structures and original flooring dating back to the 30's.
Christine was fun, full of knowledge on various topics and very passionate about her job.
She made it fun..interactive with some trïvia quiz to keep us intrigued!
We finished the tour at "Espanola Way"..which was an excellent spot for Dinner!!
Christine gave me a different view of South Beach (SoBe).
Loved it Christine...thanks for a fabi afternoon!!
