Highlights
    What to Expect
    Find your way to a local cafe on Broadway in downtown Detroit at 9:30am. Meet your guide and small group of 12 people, your fellow travelers for the urban walking adventure to discover the 'real' Detroit. 

    Take a stroll around the Broadway area, where you'll see Paradise Valley, Madison Avenue, and Foxtown. Get a look at the Fox Theater and the home of the Detroit Tigers, Comerica Park. Snap photos of the Detroit Opera House and some other landmarks before hopping on the 'People Mover', or Detroit's elevated train, for the ride over the Greektown. Visit an historic church that was a stop on the Underground Railroad, see a casino, and taste some sticky sweet baklava. 

    Hop back on the People Mover and zip over to Civic Center, where you can see the tallest hotel in the Western Hemisphere, the Renaissance Center, and some famous Detroit sculptures. Stop at the art-deco Guardian Building, where you'll get a peek at the impressive lobby and banking room. Pass the landmark Penobscot Building on your way to the American and Lafayette Coney Island restaurants, where you can order a coney dog like a local. 

    One last stop is a hotel dating from 1924, before jumping back on the elevated train to your original departure point.

    My friends and I decided this to venture into the unknown by taking a trip to Detroit for the weekend. I was a little skeptical about going on the tour at first, but needless to say the tour was worth it. It was pretty cool...More

    This tour was very enjoyable. Our guide was knowledgeable, kind, and had a good sense of humor. I was particularly impressed with his depth of knowledge about the city of Detroit, its history, people, and current state. I highly recommend this tour!

    Very informative, it was my first time to Detroit and it was good to hear from a local who has been here through the good times the down times and now the rebirth in the last two and a half years.
