I visited Miami last weekend and used Trip Advisor as my primary source of information. After reading all the positive reviews about the Art Deco Walking Tour, I got into touch with Christine. She was very accomodating and arranged a tour for me and another lady for the next day. We did the twilight tour which departs around 6:30pm. It was a great choice for summer - not as hot as during the day with nice breezes, but still has enough light to see all the buildings and take pictures. Because we were more interested in the history and people aspects of the Art Deco District, Christine tailored our tour to meet our needs. She is very good at telling stories behind those buildings. I felt I learned a lot of interesting facts that I wouldn't have known otherwise. She also gave me some very good suggestion on dining as it was my first time in town. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour and would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from Miami after staying in the city for a week. After careful reading on this site, I opted to do this specific tour over the others. Really happy we did. We phoned the tour guide Christine a couple of days before and went for a tour that started at 7pm. Perfect for us Brits that wither in the florida heat a bit. The tour felt really personal and it was a pleasure to be taken out by someone who has such and indepth and passionate interest in her subject matter. She even had some free gifts for us at the end of the tour, very unexpected and unnecessary but a really nice touch. Its actually the thing that we have talked about most since we came back to the UK so that must say something.

Thanks again Christine, if we ever come back we will be in touch for sure.

Regards

Leon

Christine is full of great information about the history and architecture of South Beach and has a wonderful personality. We had a wonderful time and certainly got our money's worth. Highly recommended.

Christine was so informative of Miami, and brought the city to life for us. In addition, she accommodated our needs as my girlfriend was recovering from an injury and could not walk.

I enjoyed seeing more of South Beach than just the nightlife/party scene. Who knew there was so much history mixed in with the clubs & cafes that exist today. Christine was passionte about her tour and excited to share her in depth knowledge of the area. She made it fun, while we learned alot too. Ask her stop so you can enjoy a "cuban coffee" along the way. Her tours are listed on her website: www.artdecotours.com
Fair price & personal service.
