Marty was a great tour guide. We had no idea how rich with history this area is. We would highly recommend this tour

Im an Architect and found this tour to be a gem in Miami. South Beach is the Mecca of Art Deco and what better way to discover it by doing a walk tour.

The tour with Paula is an absolute must do! Paula’s knowledge and passion for art, architecture and Art Deco in South Beach is so mesmorizing that I actually forgot to take photos. I was so engrossed in the history, the information and the way in which she presented it that I didn’t even think about taking my phone out to document it. A few days later, before leaving Miami, we walked back around all of the buildings that we discussed to revisit all that we learned... and to take photos! This tour did not disappoint and I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Miami or SoBe!

If you are visiting Miami for the first time or the 10th time, I would highly recommend this tour. Experiencing the entertainment and food side of Miami is one thing, but actually learning about Miami's artistic history makes the city even more alive.

A group of my girl friends and I went to Miami for the first time to celebrate my best friend's bachelorette and took this tour as a way to experience other aspects of Miami rather than just partying or eating. Also, we enjoy tourist-y things when visiting unfamiliar cities. We are between the ages of 22-35 years old.

Being extremely unfamiliar with the city, Marty accommodated to our requests and made it convenient for us. He met up with us at our lunch stop, so we would not have to look for him and ended the tour at the location we requested. He was punctual. Marty also was very interesting, funny, and engaging throughout. He genuinely cared if we were enjoying the tour. He also took pictures of us throughout the tour, so we can have memories about the locations we visited. Also, after the tour, he emailed us a document about the highlights from the tour, which is great to reflect back on. Overall, we learned about the history and architecture of the Art Deco District in South Beach.

Thank you Marty for being great! :)

Went on an Art Deco Tour in Historic South Beach with Marty. We truly enjoyed it. We saw beautiful buildings, learned some great history and he was able to keep us in the shade on a very warm Miami morning. Highly recommend!!
