Our guide Ria was amazing! She brought us to several different restaurants, each with unique foods that were so yummy. Her knowledge of Miami culture and Art Deco history made this tour feel so unique. My husband and I loved every bit of it! Tip: Book this tour early in your trip because Ria will give you a list of amazing restaurants/places to visit while in South Beach. Thanks Ria for making this such a fun experience!

Party atmosphere on the boat but quieter downstairs which is where we sat. Really great to see waterfront mansions. "The Pirate" was a fantastic guide. Bus tour a necessity for a history of Miami but very breezy on top so secure hats.

We nice a good experience with our guide Christina and the fellow travellers we met. Introduction of history of south beach, peruvian, mexican, and Columbian food is very detailed. The restaurants that were introduced are all great.
