Nancy took us on a walking tour, which included the Q Train and the People Mover. We covered a lot of territory! Nancy is enthusiastic and extremely proud to share her city with visitors and we enjoyed it all!

Spent Wednesday afternoon, 9/19/18, with Nancy. Have taken tours in many cities and Nancy ranks with the best. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Very considerate and accommodating given I am dealing with a foot injury. I highly recommend City Tour Detroit and Nancy.
