Praise for The Black Archives Tours
“Tim was AMAZING and the walking tour was fascinating, even for me, who has walked those streets plenty. Interesting and sad to note, is that Tim said we were the first to take the walking tour with him. And, although that felt incredibly special, I hope many will follow and get to experience a vital slice of old Miami.”
