Great Tour
, Oct 2021
James was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Miami Beach. He was pleasant to talk with and highly knowledgeable.
Educated and Engaging Guide
, Oct 2021
We had a well-educated tour guide who was engaging and social with our group. We walked several blocks and entered a few buildings for interior exploration (and also to escape the summer heat). While our guide was admittedly not the usual guide for this particular tour, she was clearly quite capable and charming. I appreciated that the tour ended on Ocean Dr and did not begin there. But I did think there was a bit too much emphasis on the Versace mansion and Versace himself. Just seemed a bit out of the scope of the Art Deco tour. Overall, money and time well spent.

Very Informative South Beach Art Deco Tour
, Aug 2021
James did an awesome job of the South Beach Art Deco tour. He is a great communicator and shared vast knowledge of South Beach, not only the Art Deco architecture, but social, pop culture, and the evolution of South Beach since the 1920s. The two hours went quickly. James worked hard to keep us out of the summer sun by stopping in shaded areas and taking us into the lobbies of several Art Deco hotels. Lots of insights. Even our college aged daughter enjoyed. Highly recommend.

Great experience. James made the tour entertaining and very informative on history of Miami Beach and it’s transformations over the years. Loved learning what makes a building Art Deco as well as some of the insider history of the buildings and area. Look for the “diamonds!” Super fun time!
