I only had one day to explore Detroit but Bob did a great job to give the quintessence of this historic city. I really enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to learn more about the history and architecture of the city.

Having grown up and worked all his life in Detroit, Bob was a very knowledgeable host who was especially mindful in pointing out the architecture in the city, its history and how the city is trying to make a comeback. He was very forthright about its demise and the attempt to revitalize it. We saw various famous buildings with full explanations about them it the city's history, the river front area with its unique art, theaters and the sports complex (baseball/football stadiums), all within a square-mile or so. Bob also showed us pictures from a book he maintains of Detroit and various famous buildings from their glory days so that we could visualize and appreciate where the city was back in the 50s, 60s and 70s. He captured the essence of Detroit and provided an excellent history/summary of where the city was/is. The walking tour also included a taste of Detroit's famous Coney Island hot dog and the its pizza.

Detroit was the part of our road trip, and we planned to be there just for a half of a day. Tour guide Bob showed me around and fell in love with the city. His incredible personality, intelligence, knowledge and passion for Detroit made my exploration of the city unforgettable. We also booked another tour with him in downtown. I would recommend those to everyone who is planning to come to Detroit or even just passing by, there’s so much to see!

Bob G. runs this tour and the 2 hours will fly by because you will be wrapped up in his commentary and knowledge of all things Detroit. He knows hows and whys of all the buildings, sports teams, auto industry, and culture. A real inexpensive crash course if you only have a short time in town. Fortunately, I had an extra day, and he put together a private tour for my specific interests, especially the architecture. The highest recommendation possible.
