What a fantastic tour! There was a small group (just six of us) and we started promptly. Paula was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for Art Deco and the area was contagious! We saw some beautiful buildings and left with a greater understanding of the history of Art Deco and the area along with the features/styles. Definitely a must do if you are in Miami and we would recommend to family/friends.

We arrived at Miami at lunch time and after walking around with 3 teenagers did not think it was fabulous as expected. We had a 5pm art deco tour with Paula purely because we like walking tours as you see more. Paula met us and spent an hour and half describing the history of Miami, stories and the art deco. Even my children were interested ! Easy walk, entry into buildings I would not have thought to enter. At the end of the tour we appreciated Miami a lot more and enjoyed it.
Paula was brilliant with communication as we are in Australia. The length of tour was great and for only 5 of us at approx $30pp it was well worth it.
Could not fault it and would encourage others to do it.

We really enjoyed the tour with Marty this week. He was able to give us the history of Art Deco, along with the history of Miami Beach, while showing us examples of buildings in the area, including some amazing hotels. This was a great tour to take at the beginning of our week in the area, so we could apply our knowledge of Art Deco to the buildings we saw the rest of our trip. Worthwhile tour!

What a great place to be for your 50th if you appreciate BEAUTIFUL history, architecture, art,food, fun, water, people watching, tons of cultural restaurants and beautiful scenery. I totally recommend South Bea h. Its laid back during the day and after midnight becomes Ny city or LA. A PLACE for the young and old alike. Come see this history and Biscayne Bay and the largest port in the United States. Impressive place

I and my husband and our teenage daughters (14 and 16) loved our tour with Marty. He was informative (brings visual aids) AND entertaining (tells great stories about the people and the buildings.) He clearly loves the area and stories that have formed it's history. We also really appreciated being in a smaller group - as he was able to take us into a few hotels to see lobbies as well as decks-which we would not have ventured in otherwise. And, during the tour - a tour guide with another company said we had the best!
