This is such an awesome choice for an Art Deco tour! This was my 2nd time in 4 years and my husband’s 1st art deco tour. We both thoroughly enjoyed the conversation with Janinha P and all of the detail and history she presented. Don’t miss out on this!

The ticket stated to meet at the Front Porch Cafe. It's a walking tour. It did not state to go inside the restaurant to find the guide. We waited in front of the restaurant for the guide. When no guide came we asked an employee and he told us to go inside. James was sitting at a table. We had no idea we would be having a drink there and chatting. The first drink was bourbon. James showed us photos and explained the concept of art deco. Then we walked down Ocean Drive and were shown buildings of that type. We got history of the buildings. We had drink #2 a Mojito. Very good. More buildings, more history. We went inside a hotel lobby and a member of our group thought about making a quick purchase. James told us to stay on time or we would miss out on drinks. The tour was scheduled from 4pm to 7pm with 4 cocktails included. James said we had him until 6:15. We continued and had a pina colada. It was ok. We stopped in front of Versace's home. Unfortunately it was spring break when we went. Very crowded on Ocean Drive. Last stop was for a margarita. James is an author and he showed us his book. He sold one copy to a person in our group and signed it. Our group sat and chatted while finishing our drink and said goodbye. I felt he rushed the end of the tour like he needed to leave early. Other than that, it was a good tour.

Signature cocktails and Art Deco.

If you want to have signature cocktails and learn about the history of South Beach, this is a tour for you. Our guide “James” was knowledgeable, funny and had interesting stories. This was a fun tour and I learned a lot. I would not have stepped into these hotel lobbies if I was not on the tour.

James was quite knowledgeable and clearly loves the art deco style. The mojito was excellent. Enjoyed the tour quite a bit, would have enjoyed it more without the rain.
Go for it!

This was a fun tour and interesting information. Our guide, James, was well versed in the art deco history and spoke very well to it. The cocktails weren't bad either!
Response from Host, Jan 2021
Hello Casey! Thank you for sharing your experience on the Art Deco Cocktail tour which transported you to the 1930s. James enjoyed hosting your tour and sharing the colorful history and architecture. Each neighborhood has it its own history and culture. On your next visit, check out our other tours in Little Havana such as our Cultural Walking tour with Food, or Cigar and Rum Tasting tour. Look up LittleHavanaWalkingTour Cheers!

1人での参加でしたが、非常に楽しめました。 他の人も優しく接していただき、みんなで街を散策するのが本当に楽しかったです。 何気なく通過していた建物がとっても貴重な 物だとこのツアーでとても感じました。 またワンちゃんも一緒に散歩できて楽しかったです‼️ カクテル4杯分込みなので値段も大満足でした。
