A Recent Review of this tour

Our second tour with Steven was of Miami. Once again the detail provided was first class. I wish we had booked this tour to last for two days. Steven is so committed to providing an excellent level of service. Not only were we able to visit many different areas, of Miami, learning about the inhabitants and architecture of each, we were also taken to the Biltmore Hotel. Here we rode the same elevator that Al Capone used when staying in the Penthouse Suite.
