Christine, the creator of the company, was our guide and she did a great job. This two-hour tour is casual, informative and fun. It is worth the price ($30 per person). So glad we did this!

Honestly was pleasantly surprised at how good this tour was. Not a big tour person, but there was a perfect mix between facts and history, ambient settings and nice cocktails!

The host was great and really well informed, would highly recommend.

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.

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...

This tour was amazing! Our guide John really knew his stuff. This tour was suppose to only go until 8 but ended closer to 9 because we were having such a great time. I have traveled a lot and done lots of different excursions, but this one takes the cake. We learned a lot about Art Deco while enjoying several different signature cocktails. With everything being so expensive in South Beach, I was shocked this tour only cost $60 per person. The drinks on the tour are full size! My only recommendation is to do this tour towards the beginning of the trip so you have time later on to revisit the places. This is definitely a MUST do in Miami! Do not miss this! I would go back to South Beach JUST to do this tour!
