Where do I have to start the tour?

There are 29 locations included on the tour. When you purchase your tour, along with the audio player, you will be provided a map indicating by number and illustration each of the places highlighted on the tour. You may start your tour at any of the locations by putting in the assigned number when you get to your chosen starting point.  


How long does it take to complete the tour?

If you do the complete tour from start to finish uninterrupted it will take about 120 minutes (walking). However, your rental period is 4-hours so you have additional time to find a great outdoor café, do some shopping on Lincoln Road or enjoy spending time people watching on Ocean Drive. 

Is the tour available in different languages?

The Discovery Miami Beach tour is available in three languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese. When you pick up your audio player you can request your desired language.


How do you suggest the best way to take the tour?

On a typical sunny Miami Beach day, it is easy to take the tour on foot. Many of the sites are only a few blocks from each other; and it is easy to plan your walking tour to allow for breaks to eat, people watch and shop. Discovery Miami Beach works with local partners to establish a variety of ways to take the Discovery Tour. DecoBike, the hard-to-miss bike-rental system available throughout Miami Beach, is a fun way to take the tour by Bike with an unlimited 4 hour bike rental along with your tour. Another option is to take the tour by Big Bus, the open-air double decker buses which offer a 24 hour hop-on/hop-off ticket along with the Discovery Tour. The self-guided audio tour is also very compatible if you choose to take the tour via taxi or private car.  

When I have completed the audio tour, where do I return the audio player?

The audio player must be returned to the Discovery Miami Beach store in the Art Deco Welcome Center. Please remember that all players must be returned by end of the day of the rental.  


What happens if the Discovery Audio Player stops working during the tour?
