James was a wonderful guide and had a very thorough grasp on the architecture and history of Miami Beach. He knows art deco and has done extensive research on the development of the area, including the mob's influence on how buildings were constructed during the depression-era 1930s. The specific hotels and lobbies we visited on the tour were well chosen allowing for a better understanding of how to spot art deco designs in the area. I highly recommend this tour to any architecture -- or history buff. It was a nice activity to participate as a break from the beach, sun and spring breakers.

This was our first visit to South Beach and decided to take a local tour about the area. The logical choice was the Art Deco tour. It was terrific! Our guide, James, shared Miami Beach history from 1900 to present through a wide range of stories, building architecture and personal experiences. Our tour lasted 2 hours and was fantastic. Put on your walking shoes and go- Highly recommend!
