Learning and drinking what a concept! James was a great guide. We had a great time. The history of South Beach was not what I thought it was. Getting to know James was a pleasure. Cocktails were different and delicious. We would recommend this tour to anyone. It was just the two of us on the tour.

James is definitely the guy to go around these wonderful Art Deco buildings. Insightful and full of small stories that entrall, coming from an author it is especially fresh and full of interesting and juicy bits. Definitely worth the money and the time!

James is one of the best tour guides I've had. His knowledge of the Art Deco scene in Miami Beach is encyclopedic, and his unique storytelling made the tour for me. I will recommend this tour to my friends.

Met our guide James at the rendezvous point for our first cocktail and some history of Miami. James was very knowledgeable and funny and was able to field all of the group's Miami related questions. He taught us how to recognize an Art Deco building, where the secret casinos were located and quizzed us as we went along while sharing... More

This tour was by far the best of those we took in Miami. James was funny, personable and knowledgeable about Miami and Art Deco. The size of the group (8) was just right. We saw lots of hotels, learned a bit of Miami history and pop culture and the elements of Art Deco and had 4 great cocktails. Went back... More

This tour was great! I wish I could do it over and over until we could see all of the historic buildings. Also the cocktails were delicious! Our tour guide James was very passionate and knowledge about the history and art deco. He has great stories to tell. I recommend this to anyone that's unsure about what to expect.
