Detroit is a city on the rise. Rich with history and bustling with revitalization, it truly is a great American city! Get the full experience with this Detroit City Walking Tour!
To kick off the tour, you will meet your professional, local guide at a cafe on Broadway. From there you'll take a walk around the nearby area which includes such iconic spots as Foxtown, Madison Avenue, and Paradise Valley. You'll see the fabulous Fox Theater, Comerica Park (which is home of the Detroit Tigers) the beautiful Detroit Opera House, and several other downtown Detroit highlights!
Next, you'll take a quick ride over to the immensely popular Greektown district on the elevated train called the 'People Mover'. In Greektown, you can taste a super-sweet piece of baklava, see a casino, or visit a historic church that was a stop on the Underground Railroad.
Another ride on the People Mover leads to a stop in the Civic Center area. Here you will see some famous Detroit sculptures, and have a view of the massive Renaissance Center, home to the tallest hotel in the Western Hemisphere.
Next on this Detroit tour, you'll visit the 1929 art-deco Guardian Building to see the remarkably-beautiful lobby and banking room. This is undeniably one of the most beautiful buildings in Detroit and a real treat to see!
Finally, your knowledgeable guide will take you over to American and Lafayette Coney Island restaurants, where you can try a free 'coney dog' - a grilled hot dog with Detroit-style chili, mustard and onions. Detroiters have been devouring them for more than 90 years, so get into the spirit and give it a try!
Throughout this city tour, your guide will be pointing out landmarks and historic buildings, giving you a real inside look at the history and future of this great city. It's a real treat for locals and tourists alike!
