My husband and i went on this tour lead by Paula Fletcher who was informative, enthusiastic, and easy to follow. We learned a lot about the Cuban influence on the history and culture of Miami Beach as well as about the various types of architecture there. I highly recommend Paula and would not hesitate to take another tour with her... More

Interesting Art Deco tour with Marty Mueller. He was very accommodating for our small tour and gave a lot of information during our morning walk along Ocean Drive in South Miami Beach.

Our guide Marty was a lot of fun and gave us a short history. What was best was that he took us inside some of the Art Deco hotels. So this is the sort of tour you can't do yourself. Recommended.

Paula was great at reading the group and pointing out what we would be interested in. We stopped for mojitos at the end of the tour, they were the... More

If you like to walk and you enjoy learning about architecture and culture, this tour is for you. On our first evening in South Beach, Marty met us in our hotel lobby and took us on a 90-minute walking tour of many classic art deco buildings on Collins Ave and up Lincoln Road. We couldn't have asked for more. Marty... More

It was a real pleasure to be with such a knowledgeable guide and a delight to be able to see the insides of some of the beautiful hotels. Thank... More

Signed up for the Art Deco walk which was so good that we did the Wynwood walk later in the week. Although we had done the Art deco walk last year, Paula added more historical information and presented lots of interesting anecdotes. She curated the murals in Wynwood so that we maximized out time and saw the most interesting. Would... More
