Tour was very informative and enjoyable. Howard was kind enough to organize a tour at the last minute. Howard was friendly, personable, and very professional. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour, very glad I found out about it. Highly recommended.

Miami Design Preservation League's Art Deco walking tour and their museum are a must-see for those interested in the history of South Florida and Miami Beach. The Art Deco Walking Tour volunteers will also fill you in on the specific architectural details of the many beautiful buildings that front the beach and take you into the lobbies of a couple of them to see additional design elements up close.

When I was college I was a tour guide at Radio City Music Hall - a historic musical hall built and decorated during the Art Deco period. Learning about the theaters rich history is how I fell in love with Art Deco Architecture. It has always been a dream of mine to go to South Beach and see the Art Deco buildings there. I was so excited to find the museum and sign up for their tour. Our tour guide Julie was incredibly knowledgeable and make the tour fun as well as educational. She took time to answer all of our questions. She knew twice as much as the time allowed her to share and I will definitely take another tour the next time I visit the area perhaps during the areas ART DECO WEEKEND.

Was a great walking tour Howard was very kind and informative. The explanation on the many Art Deco buildings we had seen for two days before the tour was wonderful. I do recommend a little history on what you see if always wonderful

If visiting for a few days in SOBE, I would highly recommend taking this highly informative and interesting (never boring) walking tour. Mark provided just the right amount of background on the settling of Miami Beach and the chronicles of SOBE from the turn of the twentieth century to present as told through the Art Deco architecture that will likely be the backdrop for your vacation experience. Enjoyed learning the origins and evolution of the defining characteristics of Art Deco Hotels on Ocean Drive as well as the preservation efforts. Mark also took us inside two hotel lobbies you would probably miss if not on this tour. Walk through museum (admission included with tour) has hundreds of photos and other interesting information and visuals that puts a bow on the experience. I am not an artsy person, just find the Art Deco style intriguing and learning more did not disappoint,

What amazing tour! I recommend anyone who is staying in this area does this tour - jr will will make walking around such a deeper and more vibrant experience. Our guide Joel had so much knowledge and passion for it, he taught history, art, pop culture and he made it really fun.

The tour was great. We learned a lot about Miami Beach and saw ocean drive (an area we had been to a lot) in a totally new light. The tour guide Howard was very friendly and knowledgeable.
