Wonderful tour. Extremely well done, guides were very knowledgeable and passionate. Actors were really good and this unique aspect of the tour makes it that much more relate-able. Actually walking to the various sites really gives depth and context to the stories.
I would recommend this to tour to locals and visitors alike.
In one word....Excellent!

Thank Susan H

Very informative tour. I honestly learned more about how notherners in Detroit handled slavery issues and it wasn't always positive. I would recommend this tour for anyone interested in how our state's history impacted the national abolition of slavery.

Went with a group of friends and had a great time on this food tour. Visited 4 Resteraunts around Corktown. The food was fantastic and every Resteraunts went out of the way to welcome us and give a bit of history about their establishment. Nancy, our tour guide, was absolutely fantastic and had a great insight of the history in the surrounding area. This is a "must do" for sure, you do not want to miss out! Will be doing this tour again with the hubby.

Very interesting and informative tour of Detroit Underground Railroad stops. I've lived near Detroit all my life and learned so much about the city and the Underground Railroad, that I didn't know.

This was a fantastic foodie tour. We visited 4 restaurants in the Corktown district of Detroit. All the restaurants were very welcoming and the food we had was extremely tasty. Each restaurant gave us a little history of the place and how it came about. Nancy, the guide was knowledgeable about the area and filled us in on interesting history of the area as we walked to each restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. This is a good tour for couples, friends, and solo people who want to try new food tastes and experience Detroit.
