Come as a family, group of friends or on a tour. If children enjoy history and stories and are attentive, they will enjoy this tour. (Note: this tour is NOT recommended for toddlers. If you are bringing a toddler or stroller, a private tour is required. You must contact our office directly for a Private tour, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 305-814-4058.)
THE ACTUAL TOUR
We primarily walk outside throughout South Beach between 10th and 15th streets. The tour steps inside a few buildings to point out Art Deco and modern design and decor and other highlights. For private group tours, we can begin and end anywhere within the Art Deco district.
Tour stops include the Versace mansion (the outside only), and Art Deco classics such as The Carlyle Hotel, The Tudor hotel, the 11th Street Diner and the Wolfsonian. Find out which of these buildings were backdrops for the Miami Vice scenes, and movies like the Birdcage with Robin Williams. Legend has it Capone ran his gambling syndicate from the 2nd floor of a small hotel also used in a film with Sylvester Stallone and Sharon Stone.
In the winter beginning November 3, times are 10am 1pm, 4pm. Sometime in May or June the 4pm tour changes to 5pm start time.
During the summer, tours for the most part are offered at 10am and 6:00pm. We are flexible with times and if you have a special request, please send an email.
The Art Deco Walking and Cocktail tour begin at different locations in the heart of the Art Deco district between 5th and 14th streets in South Beach. The exact starting point will be stated on the confirmation.
