Full-day private tour ( plus a lunch stop ) with a local guide
Get to know Miami like an insider. We'll take time to drive leisurely around to get to know the city and surroundings, including Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Little Havana and of course, South Beach!
We'll take time to stroll along famous Ocean Drive exploring on foot the unique Art Deco Historical District, then we'll continue our drive crossing over Biscayne Bay to the mainland and visit the Miami Design Districts and the amazing Wynwood Art District. Pass through downtown Miami passing Bayside Marketplace, the unique Miami City Hall (originally PanAm's headquarters), the Charles Street Cemetary and the lovely Plymouth Congregational Church in Coconut Grove; walk through the magnificent lobby of the historical Biltmore Hotel; swing by the remarkable Venetian Pool and then enjoy a Cuban coffee watching the old-timers playing dominos on Calle Ocho. A guided visit to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is optional.
Lunch will be about half-way through the tour at a typical Cuban restaurant in Calle Ocho.

Martin was an excellent guide, a very knowledgeable historian, passionate & personable Miamian. It was a great introduction to Miami as we had limited time after our flights were delayed and we ended up an extra night in LA. Highly recommend Martin for any tour you are looking at doing - and if you think you can't quite afford a private tour, I implore you to scrimp and save on other things to free up your budget for this!
