Overview

Transport in time to the decadence of the 20's, the boom, bust and boom of South Beach and get exclusive access to the best Art Deco hotels and bars on this fabulous cocktail tour. Casually stroll in and out of famous buildings in South Beach. Your tour guide will entertain you with stories of history, the pioneers, changing landscape due to hurricanes and unlikely heroes. Gaze in fascination at the timeless Art Deco architecture, the design/decor inside fabulous lobbies, and the influence of Hollywood and the mob. All this while sipping on signature cocktails inside boutique hotel bars. A classy way to enjoy cocktails before dinner all while absorbing the Art Deco/South Beach scenery and learning about its colorful history. We also offer private tours any day of the week. Great activity for team building or special celebration- birthday, anniversary, bachelorette/bachelor gathering, school reunion, all ladies/men's trip... We specialize in small groups (about 8 guests maximum) for the personal touch and engagement. Tours offered 4pm-7pm November to May; 5pm-8pm June-October
