When we visited three years ago we enjoyed the tour so much that we decided we would like to do it again. Paula is a fantastic guide and we learned so much. Really recommended if you really want to appreciate the unique building style of South Beach!

This is a very informative and fascinating tour. Paula is very knowledgeable and we saw lots more than we expected. Particularly interesting to see interiors of hotels and hidden away areas which are a peaceful oasis away from Ocean Drive! There were just the 2 of us so it felt customised to our interests which was nice.

Marty did a fantastic job of highlighting the unique architecture of South Beach while sharing stories that add perspective and color. We had teenagers, parents and grandparents on our private tour and they all enjoyed this experience.

My wife and I did a private tour with Paula and it was a really great couple of hours. We had an infant in a carrier and so thought it best to do a private tour which was reasonably priced. We had only a casual interest and art deco before visiting the city and Paula was patient (and obviously used to dealing with neophytes like us). We chose to do the Lincoln Road tour as we were staying at the Gale and Paula met us right at the hotel and there was a lot to see in the immediate area. This was a great choice even though it sounds like most people choose the oceon drive tour. The hotels etc are much less crowded and so you're able to go into more lobby's etc.
Paula had a long history of visiting Miami Beach, and was also able to describe some of the more recent issues facing the city with historical preservation. Highly recommended.

If you're interested in more than the jumbo cocktails they serve on Ocean Drive, then I highly recommend Art Deco Walks! Paula kept us all enthralled with her stories of the characters involved in the history of Miami Beach. She was sensitive to our needs and interests, and because one of our group had limited walking ability, she adapted the tour and was able to point out the architectural features within just a few blocks, stopping in the shade for our comfort. This tour gave me fresh appreciation of the architectural styles we see and take for granted around Miami Beach.
