Gain an understanding of the 'real' Detroit during this 2-hour walking tour of the city. Ride the 'People Mover' (Detroit's elevated train) to Lafayette Coney Island, among the sculptures of Civic Center, and through Greektown. This small group tour is limited to 12 people or fewer to ensure personalized attention from your guide. Train fare and snacks included.
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.
