Detroit: You're So Unusual  Bus Tours

Two dates only: Saturdays July 14 and August 11, noon - 5 pm / $55 pp

These fun, quirky motor coach tours go beyond the familiar Detroit landmarks and showcase cool, curious, unfamiliar, and forgotten sites of interest located within the city’s vast 139 square miles. We curated over one hundred unusual, unique, humorous, and legendary sites of interest that we had to divide "Detroit: You’re So Unusual" into two special Detroit bus tours! Part Un - Westside. Part Deux - Eastside. Like the nod to our French heritage?


Detroit’s little Venice. An outdoor place of healing. Jimmy Hoffa’s unusual office. Now-vacant shop that launched careers of hip hop legends. Eerie vault filled with cremains of well-known Detroiters. Easter Island-style giant heads. These are just a tiny sampling of the intriguing things found on either "Detroit: You’re So Unusual Tour!"

August 11 - Detroit: You're so Unusual! Part Deux (Eastside)  Book Now!


Although a few sites on each tour may be located downtown, the majority are located in Detroit neighborhoods -  far away from recognizable landmarks such as Spirit of Detroit, Joe Louis Fist, James Scott Fountain, etc. (If you want to know about those monuments, our "See The D" tour is probably the better tour for you). The sites are different on the Westside and Eastside tours. There is no overlap!


Because Detroit is so large, we’ve allotted five hours for these tours. Don’t worry, we get off the bus frequently and take an “included” refreshment and restroom break ½ way through. We’ll keep you hydrated and offer up ample snacks, too.


This bus tour is guided by none other than local historian Marion Miele Christiansen who was tour director for Preservation Detroit as well as the organization’s interim director.



Bus departs PROMPTLY at 1 PM from in front of Eastern Market Office. Although address is on Russell Street, look for bus on the Wilkens side. Free parking can be found in nearby lots. (Eastern Market is busy on Saturdays so please plan accordingly).

Minimum attendees required for tour to go. Please check email 72 hours prior to tour. No refunds unless tour is cancelled by tour operator.
