Description

Discover the historic landmarks and hidden sites of a great American city in flux on this walking tour of Detroit. Ride the People Mover to a vibrant Greektown neighborhood, see grand structures like the Guardian Building, and enjoy a classic Detroit treat.

Meet your guide and venture through the historic neighborhoods of Foxtown and Paradise Valley before hopping on the elevated People Mover train for a ride to bustling Greektown. Once there, step into a pastry shop for a wedge of honey-laden baklava, and listen as your guide describes the fascinating history of a nearby church that was once a stop on the Underground Railroad.

Board the train once more and head to the Civic Center. The center's classically-inspired “The Spirit of Detroit” and unique “Joe Louis Fist” sculptures are powerful symbols of the city's proud history.

From here, gaze upwards at the imposing Renaissance Center, a modern complex of glimmering glass skyscrapers that is home to General Motors. Next, you're led to the beautiful Guardian Building to marvel at the colorful tile mosaic designs in its grand Art Deco lobby.

Afterwards, the aroma of sausages cooking on the grill draws you to the American Coney Island restaurant where you can try a spicy coney dog, a classic snack among Detroit natives.

Lacked the antidotes that would have made the information more interesting. As long-time residents of this region, we felt that some interesting facts about the city were left out or minimized. Did like the route that was taken through the city. Saw a good portion of the city.

It was educational but lacked the “in the know” stories and tidbits that I was hoping for. His political views were definitely out in the open...which was a bit uncomfortable at times. Would I recommend this tour? Yes, I still would. The experience was still pleasant.
