Tour Guide of the Month


Mat Ruiz is one amazing tour guide and volunteer for MDPL. He consistently volunteers to give tours each month and always steps in when we need someone last minute. Mat is also a valuable instructor for the Art Deco & MiMo Tour Guide Academy, helping to train future guides.

In addition to his many tours and training, Mat has also taken on the Gay & Lesbian Walking Tour of South Beach tour. The 90 minute tour features the history of the gay and lesbian community in South Beach and its central part in the revival of the city. Don’t miss the next one on August 27th.

And, as if all that wasn’t enough, Mat is now a member of the MDPL Board of Directors – adding his valuable insights on the successful tour program and serving on the Programs and Education Committee.

Thank you Mat from all of us at MDPL for giving GREAT tours, always stepping up when needed, and being a tour guide we can count on. We appreciate everything you do!
