Enjoy seeing our beautiful downtown business district, “the beach” at Campus Martius Park, the popular Stadium District, historic Brush Park, and Midtown, our cultural and educational hub. In Midtown, you can enjoy a delightful glass of German wine or beer at Stadt Garten, a cool outdoor urban biergarten located in a hip neighborhood (beverages on your own). Or, use the time to explore the eclectic neighborhood which is home to college students and professionals and interesting 18th and early 19th century architecture. Eastern Market, a historic marketplace and outdoor mural gallery, and Detroit’s beloved island park Belle Isle (Michigan’s 102nd state park) are on the itinerary too. From Belle Isle’s Sunset Point, you’ll be able to take fabulous photos of the Detroit and Windsor skylines, and weather permitting, spectacular sunsets.

Sometimes Belle Isle is closed to vehicular traffic due to overcrowding. If that occurs, we’ll go to another special spot to see the sunset. Speaking of sunsets, we can’t guarantee those either. Although we hope for the perfect night, the weather is fickle. Detroit still shines under cloudy skies and light rain (bring an umbrella). We’ll make equal accommodations if the outdoor biergarten isn’t open due to weather too.

  • Sunset NOT Guaranteed! Weather is fickle. Tour still runs during cloudy conditions or light rain.
  • Advanced registration required. Confirmation emailed at time of purchase. (Make sure your email and phone number are correct).
  • No need to print tickets. Name will appear on manifest.
  • Tickets are NOT refundable unless tour is canceled by City Tour Detroit. Tickets are transferable.
  • Tour runs light rain or shine. If severe and dangerous weather conditions exist, we’ll cancel the tour. We have no control over weather so please check your text and email messages prior to tour start.
  • Paid parking is available at Huntington Place the Buhl Garage located across the street. Other structure and street parking options nearby as well.
