    Useful information. The tour is about 2hrs. It could have been 1-1 1/2 hours. I would suggest going in cooler weather.

    Rick_M, Mar 2024
    This was an awesome tour - we learned so much about Miami Beach and its history and architecture that we did not know. Our tour guide was excellent.

    Sweltering heat & humidity but learned about Florida’s Art Deco & past from the 1910’s thru the 2000’s.
    Do not miss this tour!
    Julie_S, Mar 2024
    This tour was excellent. Damien is completely knowledgeable about Art Deco and the history of the Miami area. I haven’t learned that much in two hours probably ever! The tour was a treat. If I were staying longer in Miami I would have taken his crime tour also. Next time!
    Walk the distance
    MALCOLM_C, Mar 2024

    Enlightening Art Deco tour
    MaryAnne_D, Mar 2024
    Our guide, Greg, was excellent! Besides the amazing architecture we especially enjoyed the history he enlightened us with. Our visit to Miami Beach was solely based on seeing the Art Deco structures.
    Not worth the price
    Heather_S, Feb 2024
    Larry David was basically our tour guide- I loved him but there were a lot of glitches on the tour and we didn’t learn much/ tour was not worth $40 each- should have been $20 max
    Response from Host, Feb 2024
    I’m sorry you had a bad experience. Our tours have Hundred's of 5 star reviews and that guide has done years of research and consistently gets 5 star reviews including for his sense of humor. Come back and try another one of our volunteer guides who do this to support preservation.
    Awesome Tour and Guide
    Barbara_R, Feb 2024
    My guide, Eric, is the best. He usually leads the tours on Tuesdays. His love for the deco buildings is obvious. Great experience.
