Let Us Show You the Motor City

From Its Industrial Roots to Its Thriving Café Culture Scene

Detroit holds a unique spot in world history due to its role in putting the world on wheels and its meteoric rise as an industrial powerhouse in the first half of the 20th century followed by its dramatic fall. While the city’s automotive heritage is definitely a major part of the city’s identity, there is so much more to the Motor City than cars. Take a walk through the city on our See the D Walking Tour, learn about the birthplace of Motown on our See the D on Wheels Tour or discover Detroit’s important role in the antislavery movement on our Detroit Underground Railroad Walking Tour. We’ll take you to all the city’s must-see attractions like the Guardian Building, Greektown and Motown as well as a few out-of-the-ordinary gems that us locals love to show off. We’ll also show you the ever-evolving dining and drinking scene that’s made Detroit a top foodie destination. Check out our offerings below to learn more!

Check back often! We’ll soon be adding our exciting food, music and true crime tours to the calendar.
