Now, Global Cruises LLC invites travelers to explore the captivating allure of Miami’s vibrant streets or the enchanting landscapes of New England and Canada through its innovative approach to shore excursions.

Selfie Tour – Miami Experience:
Starting at the iconic “Joen and the Giant Beetle” statue, serving as the perfect meet-up point for an adventure-filled day ahead, with complimentary parking available and RSVPs pouring in, anticipation filled the air as attendees gathered to embark on a journey of discovery. Key speaker Michael Tomé, renowned tour guide of “Guidefather Tours,” welcomed guests with his infectious enthusiasm, setting the stage for an unforgettable experience. As the day unfolded, attendees were treated to a guided Miami Tour experience like no other. From exploring the vibrant street art to indulging in delectable cuisines at local hotspots, and hitting up the coolest spots, snapping pics at every corner with their Selfie Tour and Food Hopping extravaganza; every moment was a feast for the senses, indulging in the mouthwatering delights Wynwood has to offer. During our tour, we immersed ourselves in a tapestry of artistic wonders, iconic landmarks, and cinematic settings that left us spellbound. Let’s delve deeper into the artistic marvels and cultural gems we encountered:

Highlighting Notable Art Installations:
“Joen and the Giant Beetle” by Thomas Dambo: Crafted by the visionary Danish recycling artist Thomas Dambo, this colossal sculpture is a testament to his mission of environmental conservation and creativity. Made entirely from recycled materials, including discarded wood and metal, Joen and the Giant Beetle symbolize the beauty that can emerge from what others consider waste. As Dambo eloquently puts it, “Our world is drowning in trash while we are running out of natural resources.” This inspiring artwork serves as a poignant reminder of the power of art to transform and inspire.

“Eternal Artwork” by Miguel Ángel Sánchez AKA SATURNO: Nestled within the vibrant Wynwood Arts District, this breathtaking mural transcends boundaries with its imaginative depiction of a Gator adorned in a regal attire with a teapot on its back and a gold armor, dripping jewels, and saliva with bulging eyes and a insatiable appetite for luxury. Painted on two walls to seem as one, on the site of the iconic car scramble scene from “2 Fast 2 Furious,” this masterpiece captures the essence of luxury and intrigue. SATURNO’s meticulous attention to detail and bold artistic vision breathe new life into the urban landscape, inviting viewers to ponder the intersection of art and cinema. This has now been spruced up to become the Mana Wynwood Production Village, 318 NW 23rd Street, a production venue in the Wynwood Arts District north of Downtown owned by Moishe Mana – Founder and Chairman of Mana Common – also known as a major investor of two key neighborhoods Wynwood and downtown Miami’s Flagler Street.

“Selfie Demon” by Buns (MSG Crew): Positioned at 527 NW 22nd St, Miami, this captivating mural by Buns, a member of the esteemed MSG Crew, beckons passersby to pause and reflect. Completed in 2021, this artwork embodies the spirit of contemporary street art, blending vibrant colors and dynamic imagery to create an immersive visual experience. As we stood before this striking piece, we couldn’t help but feel inspired by its energy and creativity.

“Sacred Ocean” by MSG Crew: Located at 540 Northwest 23rd Street, this mesmerizing mural transports viewers to an underwater realm teeming with life and vitality. Crafted by the talented members of the MSG Crew, this collaborative artwork celebrates the beauty and diversity of marine ecosystems. With its intricate details and vibrant hues, “Sacred Ocean” serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of preserving our planet’s natural wonders.

“Our Lady of Charity” by Adrian Avila: Situated at 590 NW 23rd St, Miami, this stunning mural pays homage to Cuba’s rich cultural heritage and spiritual traditions. Depicting the iconic Freedom Tower and the Cuba Polo Castle, this artwork symbolizes resilience and hope. Adrian Avila’s masterful use of symbolism and imagery captures the essence of Cuban identity, inviting viewers to contemplate the enduring legacy of the Cuban people.

Art by Atomik: Renowned for his iconic orange character, Atomik’s artwork resonates with locals and visitors alike. Emerging as a response to the demolition of the Miami Orange Bowl, his signature character has become a beloved symbol of Miami’s vibrant street art scene. With its bold colors and playful charm, Atomik’s art adds a touch of whimsy to the urban landscape, inviting viewers to rediscover the magic of their surroundings.

Our culinary journey was equally enchanting as we stopped for a quick break at “Bartaco Wynwood,” with their tantalizing flavors and refreshing drinks awaiting our arrival. From Duck Tacos bursting with flavor to Falafel Tacos brimming with Mediterranean goodness, each taco was a culinary masterpiece in its own right. And let’s not forget the Pomegranate Lemonade – a refreshing elixir that danced with sweetness on our taste buds and quenched our thirst amidst the Miami heat.

After a bit more cruising around Wynwood, discovering the art manifested throughout the city, our tour was elevated as we entered the historic “Cervecería La Tropical,” where we raised our glasses to a day filled with art, culture, and culinary delights. As one of the first breweries in Miami, with the oldest history, Cervecería La Tropical holds a special place in the city’s heart, offering a taste of Cuban heritage with every sip. From the crisp Amber Lager of 1888 to the tropical IPA of Nativo Key, each brew tells a story of resilience and tradition. Definitely a “must come-back” and new favorite to add to the list.

Our journey culminated leading us to Joey’s Italian Cafe – a culinary gem in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. Established in 2008 by visionary entrepreneur Joey Goldman, it has become synonymous with authentic Italian cuisine. As we savored each dish, from Neapolitan-style pizzas to homemade pasta bursting with flavor, we marveled at Joey’s commitment to excellence. Paired with an exquisite selection of wines, our dining experience transported us to the sun-kissed vineyards of Italy. Dining amidst the rustic charm of Joey’s, we bid farewell to an unforgettable culinary adventure, leaving with satisfied smiles and cherished memories.

The unveiling of the Miami Tour and New England/Canada tours signifies Global Cruises LLC’s commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction. By expanding its offerings to include new destinations, the company aims to broaden its market reach and inspire travelers to embark on new adventures. The potential economic impact on local tourism industries in these regions is significant, with Global Cruises LLC poised to lead the way in sustainable tourism practices that prioritize environmental conservation and cultural preservation.
