It was so awesome to be back on a tour. I’ve really missed these in my life! I loved visiting Elmwood and driving through Indian Village. It was also lovely to see the progress being made in Michigan Central Station. I’d love to go in some old or abandoned spaces if safety (and insurance policies) allow. A complete cemetery tour would be awesome in the fall. Or another street art tour. Or another theatre tour. I’d love to see the restoration progress on some of the ones that were in process before the pandemic. That was fun too and it is always changing. Love love love the new starting point. Dessert Oasis is amazing! Shout out to them and their staff for hosting us pre and post tour! Coffee is wonderful! Our tour guide did a great job with information and was so patient managing some of the more interesting members of our group. I can’t wait to come back! Love you DBC!!!

Not your typical bus tour. The bus itself is unique. The guide is a Detroit native and full of information, and not the boring tour guide style. You will get to see Detroit as you ride around but you’ll feel like you’re getting a special pass to places overlooked by most others. Plenty of laughs too. Great time.

I did the historic bars tour -- had a great time! Everyone was friendly, funny and energetic guide. We visited 3 historic bars, spent about 45 minutes at each, about 3.5 hours in total including travel time. Highly recommended! P.s. bring cash because some bars do not take credit cards and some coins for the pinball machines and pool table.

This is my second time doing the tour. So much fun! Love learning about Detroit and these fine establishments. Tips -- Don't be late; the bus leaves right at 6. Pack a small, soft-shell cooler with drinks and snacks.
