This tour is well lead and full of history. You will come away with a different attitude toward Detroit and its future. The informative guide is well versed in the history and buildings. It’s a great time to see the city before it changes.

Guess it would depend on what time of year you went, or if the day was overcast. You will get more overhead sunshine on the 11 am tour. I took the tour a few months ago, and most of it was indoors. So... not sure which... More
