Marty was awesome! My wife I did the walking tour with Marty today and had a great time. Marty's knowledge of the Art Deco period is deep and broad and his enthusiasm about the subject matter is contagious. He is a wealth of information and did a great job. When I booked this tour I told Marty that my wife I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. During our email exchange I asked Marty for some restaurant recommendations and he was more than happy to help and that was much appreciated and a great help

My husband & I had the pleasure of taking a bike tour with Marty Mueller earlier this week. We are both so glad we did. Marty is a wealth of knowledge concerning Art Deco architecture & of South Beach itself. He answered all of our questions and was a delight to spend the morning with. The ride itself is at your own pace & on level roads. It was a great experience.

During a very pleasant walk through South Beach, Marty brought the area to life for us. Not only did he tell us the history of its development and point out the wonderful architectural features all around us, many of which we would have missed, but Marty also entertained us with anecdotes about the people who had made Miami Beach what it is today, ranging from Clark Cable to Frank Gehry and Whitney Houston!

Fun for the whole family! 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.

Paula took us into hotel lobbies to point out interesting features, and even up to the rooftop pool area of one hotel to provide us with a view of the area. We enjoyed this tour so much, we arranged to also meet up with Paula again a couple of days later to tour the street art of Wynwood. Highly recommend this company and their tours in Miami. May even try to arrange a tour in Warwickshire, UK, when we are next in the UK.

Super visite avec Marty dans un français parfait du quartier Art Deco à Miami Beach. Plein des infos très intéressantes sur l'historique de ce quartier...surtout en début de séjour. Il nous a permis aussi d'entrer dans des hôtels dans lesquels nous n'aurions pas osé aller... Merci à vous Marty...

Took an Art Deco Walk tour with Paula. She picked us up at hotel which was convenient as we were staying in the Art Deco area of South Beach. She explained both what art deco was as well as the history of Miami Beach. We had a very enjoyable 90 minute tour and learned so much we would have not known had we not taken this tour. I highly recommend this tour.

If you like to walk and you enjoy learning about architecture and culture, this tour is for you. On our first evening in South Beach, Marty met us in our hotel lobby and took us on a 90-minute walking tour of many classic Art Deco buildings on Collins Ave and up Lincoln Road. We couldn't have asked for more. Marty brought us inside some of the most gorgeous hotels from the Art Deco period. We would never have ventured in on our own, but the doormen at each hotel knew Marty and welcomed us in. What a treat!

After enjoying the Miami Design Preservation League’s standard art deco walking tour several times over the past few years, my husband and I wanted to learn more about the grand hotels just north and east of Lincoln Road. Happily, we found Art Deco Walks and Paula Fletcher. Paula took the two of us on a custom tour of the historic district "Divas,” such as the Raleigh, the National and the Albion. She was entertaining and extremely knowledgeable, and before we knew it the 90 minutes had flown by. Highly recommended and an excellent value. We're looking forward to trying Paula and Marty's other walks on our next visit.

Anne Diamo, Boston, Mass - February 15, 2017

I went on the Art Deco Walking Tour with Marty. He has both a passion and expertise in this style of design. His knowledgeable presentation has obviously been expertly cultivated over time and conveyed a wealth information. I would repeat this tour again in the future.
