NANCY: TOUR GUIDE
People immediately sense the passion and enthusiasm radiating from Nancy whenever she talks about one of her favorite topics: Detroit. Working in the city for over two decades, Nancy was always drawn to its rich history, vibrant culture and magnificent architecture.
She watched in awe from the perfect vantage point, a tech company located in the heart of downtown where she worked as a software developer, and witnessed firsthand old buildings, darkened streets and empty parks come back to life. Excited by the transformation, she and her husband Mark gave impromptu tours to willing family and friends to show off the amazing things happening in the city.
A City Tour Detroit guide since 2016, Nancy is thrilled to showcase Detroit to locals rediscovering the city and worldwide travelers. She delights in seeing their initial apprehension give way to amazement as the history, architecture and new developments unfold before them. Nancy likes to include commentary on the efforts of the people who have lived in Detroit through the good and rough times, who had a vision and who have worked so hard to revitalize this incredible city.
When not giving tours, Nancy can be found distributing food at homeless shelters, working to raise money and awareness for local food pantries or cleaning up public parks. An avid gardener, she’s turned dirt at many of the city’s urban gardens, pruned and planted new trees and even grapevines alongside her husband in the country’s largest urban vineyard located right here in Detroit.
And a great city invites great chefs! Nancy loves to discover and savor the countless delicious dishes and cocktails of the many new restaurants and bars in the city. Come and join her on one of our fabulous foodie tours!
