Did you know that Miami Beach is mostly man-made? And that Biscayne Bay used to be a shallow swamp? And that Muhammad Ali became world boxing champion for the first time right here in Miami Beach? As a seasoned tour guide, I've discovered and curated the best-kept secrets of the area, including secret rooftop terraces with breathtaking views, peculiar corridors leading to hidden havens, obscure lobbies with intriguing tales, speakeasies that hold captivating stories, step foot on crime scene locations that once captured the World’s headlines, and decipher architecture of Art Deco hidden in plain sight, shedding light on the city's intriguing history. Whether history fascinates you or not, you’ll be entertained by an array of quirky facts and indulge in movie and TV trivia as we unveil the backdrop of popular film and television locations, scattered around the heart of the city. This tour offers an exciting experience, revealing a side of the city even locals are yet to uncover.
