“Excellent walking tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The walking tour was great and our tour guide, John, was entertaining and informative. His extensive knowledge of the history of Art Deco and South Beach made the tour perfect! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone! The Art Deco Cocktail Tour sounds amazing also.

“Not much to it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We booked this walking tour based upon other reviews on TripAdvisor but have to be honest and say we were a little disappointed. On the day there was some sort of emergency so the planned guide did not turn up but someone else did a few minutes late. Then a couple of the planned hotels to visit were closed for refurbishment or filming so we couldn't go in, and there was no back up plan so it felt a little disorganised. Now I'm not the most historical person but I didn't find there to be too much history to discuss on the tour. Yes we got to walk around the art deco hotels but I did that in the evenings and could have taken the same photo's then and walked in and out myself to have a look around. You can really do this for yourself...

“Lots of fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Christine is so knowledgeable of the area and its history. She kept our small group engaged with questions and "quizzes." A nice stroll down Ocean Ave with plenty of stops and sights. Make sure to get some nice pictures at the rooftop lounge!

“Labor Day Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Christine is amazing. I take walking tours whenever I travel, and she is one of the best tour guides I've had here or abroad. Very knowledgeable, lots of history, great stories and terrific views of the art deco district. Given our small group size, we were able to get into unique venues as well as enjoy rooftop vistas. Excellent tour.
