Join us on these progressive culinary excursions through different Detroit neighborhoods where you’ll sample tasty specialties at each featured restaurant. Restaurants included on our Detroit Dine Around tours dish up unique, ethnic, or all-American cuisine and range from hospitable to historic, trendy or longtime local favorite, off-the-beaten track or in the middle of all the action. Tour includes generous samples from four different restaurants and neighborhood history/hot spot tidbits dispensed along the way by our knowledgeable and passionate tour guides.

Other tour dates/times can be arranged for private groups of 8-12

 

 

 

Detroit Dine Around: Favs & Flavs / Thursdays @ 1:00 PM / $56 PP

 

This culinary excursion serves up generous tastings from some of Detroit's favorite downtown and midtown restaurants. Featured favorites include the best kind of pizza - Detroit-style deep dish, a legacy salad once served at Detroit's beloved department store, a deli delight not usually associated with Detroit, an iconic Detroit coney dog, a brewski from Michigan's first microbrewery along with house-made cheeze, and a sweet treat finale.

 

Featured establishments not only dish up local favorites but they're rich in local history, pop culture or social entrepreneurism.

 

This tour and taste is an excellent stand alone activity or an excellent pairing with our morning See The D walking tour as guests go beyond downtown and see the cultural center, stadium district, trendy shopping neighborhood, and Detroit's largest urban university campus. Our passionate guides will dish on history, art, architecture, new developments throughout the tour.
