Can’t make our public walking or mobile tours, or just prefer a private tour? Bringing a group to Detroit and have specific requirements? As private group tour specialists, we have the solutions. Let us introduce you to Detroit your way!

City Tour Detroit offers private “See The D” walking tours where we carefully customize content to your interests and walk at your pace. These tours are perfect for individuals, couples or smaller parties. We can focus on touring downtown, where there is tons to see and do, or move between downtown and midtown, home to our cultural center and other cool things, for a broader overview. Depending on your selection, Detroit People Mover and QLine rides are included. Prefer not to walk? No problem. We can show you around via executive-style black sedans, SUVs or sprinters.

Our walking tours are popular with large groups too! Our guides will meet your group at one of many designated locations, such as the Port of Detroit, and deliver an amazing tour based on your group’s interests, allotted time and walking ability.

Larger groups can also book our widely requested step-on guide services. Our tour guide boards your bus and takes you on a compelling, fun and informative journey showcasing Detroit’s crown jewels, legendary landmarks and all the city’s must-sees as well as a few out-of-the-ordinary spots. No bus? No problem. We have access to a variety of transportation options ranging from 14-passenger sprinters to minibuses and 34, 40 and 56-passenger motor coaches. We can provide the guide and transportation!

Even our public offerings—Solid Gold Detroit and Incredible Journey to Midnight—can be adapted to private bus (or walking) tours.
