This tour has it all! As we travel by private car around the city, I will take you on a journey through time from the prehistoric era to the present day weaving together the story of how Miami became the Magic City, and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. We will travel through all the popular and trendy neighborhoods such as the funky and hip Wynwood Arts District, the vibrant Little Havana, and the trendy and posh Brickell Financial District. In addition, we will go off the beaten path into the bohemian and Bahamian Coconut Grove, and "The City Beautiful", Coral Gables. Along the way we will check out a cigar factory, see historic landmarks, try yummy foods and take some cool pictures of hot art. Best of all, we will stop for international culinary treats along the way that represent some of the many cultures that make Miami the gateway to Latin America. We will be making approximately 5 stops. Each tour is easily customized to your interests. Therefore, if you have already been to one of the stops, I will create another one! We will have some fun and some laughs too!!I I know many great locations for photos, so I will stop and take some awesome pictures of you along the way. I look forward to meeting you!!
Hi! I am a native of Miami, a historical lecturer and tour guide for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University, a certified Toastmaster and an amateur stand-up comic. I hold a B.S. from Florida International University in Tourism and Hospitality Management and studied Improvisation and Sketch Comedy at the Second City in Hollywood, CA. I am also half-Ecuadorian (surprise)! I have a passion for Miami and what I do, and have been guiding for over 6 years giving an array of historical, cultural and culinary tours. I spend my free time reading and researching history, participating in storytelling contests and open mic nights, and travelling around the world. I love meeting new people from around the world and creating memories for them. I will make our day the highlight of your trip. See you soon, I hope!!
