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!
Group bus tours can be customized to fit your needs and interests, or you might be interested in one of our tried and true niche itineraries such as: Gardens of Detroit, All Things Art, Detroit Civil War Landmarks, Haunted Detroit, All Things Automobile, Motor City Mansions, Shop ‘til You Drop Detroit and All Things Henry Ford. Even our public offerings—Solid Gold Detroit and Incredible Journey to Midnight—can be adapted to private bus (or walking) tours.

Nancy did an incredible job of our Detroit D tour. She has high energy and enthusiasm and communicated information in a very interesting way and was able to answer all the questions. The trip itinerary was excellent with a nice balance of architecture, history, current structures being built, restaurants and wonderful things going on in the city. Read more
I was very impressed with both the walking and bus tours! Kudos to Karin, she is a very pleasant, knowledgeable and highly motivated guide! Read more
We visited Detroit in late August to attend a Tigers game at Comerica Park. When visiting a big city, we always try to take a city tour to experience the city. Our walking tour guide was Pat. We got a private tour and are so grateful that she took the time to host just the two of us. Her tour was extraordinary. Read more
We had an informative and entertaining tour “See the D”. Nancy was our tour guide. She is very enthusiastic about Detroit and presented just the right mixture of history, stories, places to eat and general information. If you decide to go to Detroit, this is the right way to get to know about the city. Read more
