Highly recommended- you will have a wonderful time
John_M, Mar 2024
We had an excellent time and really got to appreciate the artwork and area. We would never have been able to have the same experience on our own. It’s amazing how many things you don’t see that are in front of you. Our guide gave us a lot of history and showed us items we would have missed or simply not appreciated to the same degree. Bonus was vip treatment to get a table within the Dior cafe.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
So glad that you enjoyed the complete experience, I enjoyed showing you and your family the sights! Oh, and I wish your son only the best of luck in his new endeavor in Boston.
Fabulous Tour!
Lisa_S, Jan 2024
Wonderful tour with so much kind personality and great knowledge! My daughter and I got so much more out of the design district with your insights. Thank you!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Two wonderful individuals to meet and enjoy the district with! Hope that the rest of your weekend was a memorable mother/daughter experience :)
Miami Design District walking tour
Lisa_M, Jan 2024
Margery took us all around the design district pointing out different facades of buildings and who the architect was, and the thought process behind it. She knew a lot about the architects themselves. Without her guiding us we definitely would not have noticed nor really understood the reasoning behind certain design elements. A bonus to one member of our party was her interest in the fashion designers. All and all an informative tour. Be wary of being taken up to the Dior cafe at the end of the tour. It's really just a roof top garden and very expensive. Kind of an odd goodbye to leave us at an overpriced cafe.
Very enjoyable
Marion_C, Oct 2023
Margery gave us a fascinating tour of the Design District. It was so interesting and informative. We saw many things, that despite having walked past numerous times, I hadn’t seen or noticed and lots of background on things I had.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for being such enthusiastic guests, you really made it very easy to walk the district with. Hope our paths will cross again!
Lovely time learning, walking and taking it all in…
AIDA_R, Sep 2023
We loved being. Educated on the architecture and the design concepts that surround the beautiful space. And the luxe cafe pop in was the cherry on the top . Margery was great!
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Very enjoyable moment in time indeed! It was fun showing you guys the sights, especially witnessing how much you were both soaking it all in :)
Great discovery of the design district
Carol_P, Jul 2023
We had a great time walking around the design district of Marjery. She showed us so many interesting views and designs that we couldn't have appreciated otherwise. She knew a lot about each piece and told us just enough to relate the design and the intent. Though it's a 2-hour tour, it's about 1: 15 of walking with Margery and then you're on your own in the cafe. The cafe, which was secluded and exclusive as described, was open air and too hot in July for us to enjoy. Even with that, we loved the tour.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thanks Carol, it was a pleasure showing you the sights! Glad you enjoyed despite Miami's unseasonably warm weather.

Dope Tour
Matt_B, Dec 2022
Marjory was awesome with her storytelling and tidbits that she shared about the design and history and purpose behind the Miami Design District. And as an interior designer on her birthday, my wife truly enjoyed everything about this tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Truly a pleasure walking the district with you guys! I'll never forget the puzzled look on your wife's face when you first revealed the purpose of the tour to her. And who knows maybe we'll cross paths at Juanchi's ;)
Incredible Sights!
Sarah_R, Dec 2022
We had a wonderful Tour with Margery recently. She is so knowledgeable and showed our group of 4 all the eye-popping sights, buildings and unbelievable architecture. We all felt the length of the Tour was just right - we booked the early morning time slot which worked out perfectly in the South Florida heat. The pace was leisurely and we stopped for tons of photos - the art installations are amazing along with the back stories that Margery shared with us. The last hour of the Tour was to be spent on our own at the Dior Cafe, but we opted out of that part as it was just too hot to sit outside. We appreciated that Reservations had been made for us, but if we had known of this plan in advance we would’ve let Margery know we weren’t interested in sitting outside. Overall a very cool and interesting way to spend an hour and 1/2 in South Florida/Miami!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Sarah, It was a real pleasure showing you and your family the sights, I'm so glad that you enjoyed the tour and understand that you felt it was just too warm to enjoy the hidden cafe on that day. So for the next time you're here you will have something very special to look forward to!
Unexpected contemporary art gem
Shannon_J, Dec 2022
We very much enjoyed our tour of the design district. The background information was interesting and helped to understand how it all came to be. I don’t know how you could really see all of it without a guide. There are endless nooks and crannies that would make navigating on your own difficult.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Shannon, Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review, what a great take away of a very fun afternoon!
Something Different!
Suzy_G, Dec 2022
Margery at MC2 was our tour guide and even tho we live here in Miami, was interesting to learn about Design District and its importance in our arts and culture world. Fun and easy walk. Good job MC2!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you Suzy! So glad to have had the opportunity to show you and your sister the at times, 'hidden sights' of the district! A pleasure meeting you both :)
Fun and intriguing.

This tour is amazing! The guide is absolutely amazing. During the tour you’ll be provided with information that really makes you appreciate the beauty and story behind the design district. I was so shocked but grateful for the experience!
