    See Great Architecture from the 1920s & 30s.
    Our tour group consisted of three people excluding Dildora Damisch, who was our tour guide. Dildora thoroughly explained the rise, fall, renovation and rejuvenation of the great office buildings of downtown Detroit. The tour lasted more than three hours. There was alot of walking., but Dildora led us into several air-conditioned areas where we were able to take breaks. The fact that the weather was perfect made this tour even more enjoyable.

Dildora was so incredibly knowledgeable about all things Detroit, and she shared her knowledge in a very conversational and personable style. This tour was part looking at beautiful, amazing architecture and design, and part learning about the history and sociopolitical landscape of Detroit. The pace of the tour was just right, not too fast nor too slow, and I liked that there were breaks where we sat down and just talked while we looked at the interesting things around us. Dildora also takes the time to answer questions based on each person's interests, including recommendations for restaurants and other things to see and visit. I am extremely impressed at how well she was able to balance so many things at once to provide a wonderful experience for the group!

I loved that on this tour we got to go inside buildings, and see places that Dildora had access to. Folks at the buildings we went into all knew her, and literally opened locked doors for us when we got there. Initially I felt like this was very expensive, since it's more than I would usually spend on a ticket for a fun thing, and I was hoping it would be worth it. I found that it was sooooo well worth it, and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Our guide was very knowledgeable about Detroit’s history, and she showed us many beautiful buildings and special areas in the downtown area. It is wonderful to see all of the updates going into the city, and our guide told us about many unique restaurants that we fully intend to try out in the future. After our tour, we enjoyed an appetizer and some drinks at one of several restaurants that had an outdoor patio open. The weather couldn’t have been better, which definitely made the experience even more perfect.

After the tour, our guide shared more information on many of the restaurants she referred to- which was very helpful, as we could not remember them all. Thank you Dildora! 🙂

This was a great tour! I learned so much about the history of the city as well as the city’s future! It wasn't until I took this tour (on the third day of my visit) that I felt I'd really SEEN Detroit. Through this tour, my guide illustrated how the local love and passion for the city and it's history is kept alive through architectural renovations. This tour absolutely made my visit!

Our family took Undiscovered Beauty of Detroit tour with Dildora on Tuesday. Her passion for Detroit architectural gems and in-depth knowledge of city’s history made this an unique and revealing experience. Planning to join other tours offered by Dildora in a future! Thank you for making our stay in Detroit really special!

Our guide was so incredibly knowledgeable and delightful. I completely enjoyed the bit of history she provided at the beginning plus her choice of buildings. It was very cool to see the inside of a few of them plus the riverfront plaza. It was very generous of her to offer her phone # for dining recommendations. We did take her advise & hopped on the Qline which took us up to the Fisher Building & back. Would highly recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in Detroit history from founding to the present-- really gives you a lot of appreciation for the city.

What a fantastic way to explore downtown Detroit! Diladora was an incredibly knowledgeable guide and made learning about the history of Detroit fun and interesting. She also shared a lot about the rich art scene, recent development of historic buildings, and future plans for the city. I’m a native Michigander and really enjoyed this tour. Don’t hesitate to book!

Dildora is very well informed about her city. She has a wonderful depth of knowledge about Detroit and the architects and planners who built it — from broad sweeping specifics (history and current) to minutiae. I found the tour to be very interesting and informative. I wished it would have been longer — two hours just wasn't enough! Highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to gain insight into this once great city that is definitely well on its way back.

My husband and I took this walking tour with Dildora and absolutely loved it! She was an excellent guide, very personable with tons of knowledge about Detroit, both past and present. We started at the incredible Guardian Building and wandered in and out of a great selection of downtown sites while we learned about the history of the city. We were very impressed with all the lovely, restored buildings plus all the art, the murals and the flowers everywhere. We really enjoyed our time there and are grateful to Dildora for answering all our many questions and helping us appreciate this “renewed” Detroit.

This tour was by far one of the best discovery tours i have ever done. Dildora was able to give a historical perspective and transmit her passion for contemporary Detroit. The Art, the architecture, the music and the food. I would highly recommend this tour for out of state visitors as well as in state visitors to grasp the transformation happening in front of your eyes.
