TOURS OF DETROIT - DETROIT TOUR CONNECTIONS
STARTS AT 4PM DAILY / $25 PER PERSON
SIGN UP IN ADVANCE / DOWNTOWN WALKING TOUR
TOUR DESCRIPTION: (Meet in front of 1555 Broadway shortly before 4pm)
A very informative and interesting tour that covers a lot. It's a mix of history, architecture, art, and Detroit's sports, music, and events, many buildings that were empty for two or three decades before a multi-billion dollar renewal of downtown Detroit, and new downtown stadiums, boutique hotels and more.
Bob (or another good guide) will be your guide for the Rise Fall & Renewal tour.
The tour usually lasts two hours (from 4:00-6:00pm). Sometimes is goes a bit faster.
Please be prepared to be outside for a couple of hours in whatever that day's weather may be.
The tour is only cancelled when it is raining very hard.
We will be outside the vast majority of the time. Usually we only get inside a couple of buildings,
especially in 2020-2021. Sometimes we rely on photos to show what certain buildings currently look like inside, or to show how things looked before a restoration.
SIGN UP IN ADVANCE - CALL OR TEXT FOR BOOKINGS WITHIN 24 HOURS OF A TOUR
Space on the 4pm tour is limited to a maximum of 10 individuals
We will run the tour if even 1-2 people have signed up ahead of time.

If you have a large group, and access to a bus and driver, we'll provide someone who
will climb aboard and be the tour guide. In the tour biz, this is called a "step-on guide."
Usually Bob will be your guide. He has been giving bus tours of Detroit for more than
fifteen years. Customers have included family reunions, groups from other US states,
groups from other countries, school groups, and any group taking a day trip to Detroit.
If you have the bus and driver lined up, we will charge a reasonable fee (based on
factors like the length of the tour and number of people) for providing the guide.
For example, if you pick up the guide in Downtown Detroit, we usually would charge
$225 for a two-hour general bus tour for a motorcoach that may seat 50-55 people.
And the fee can be less if your group is a lot smaller, or if the tour is only 90 minutes.
We can see a whole lot in a couple of hours -- and we definitely can get off the bus
at one or more locations during a bus tour.
Customized tours can be discussed. We can cover topics like Auto History,
Murals Around Detroit, Historic Churches, Detroit's African-American History,
Nice Residential Areas of Detroit ... Tours lasting over two hours can be discussed.
CONTACT US -- firstname.lastname@example.org or (313) 701-1900.

WHO IS THIS "BOB" THAT YOU KEEP TALKING ABOUT?
Bob Goldsmith was born in Detroit many years ago. He started giving tours
of Detroit in 2001. He's lived downtown since 2003 -- and has always loved it.
Bob started Detroit Tour Connections in 2004. It was a second business, --
in addition to his solo law practice. Detroit Tour Connections partnered with
Urban Adventures from 2011-2020. Bob came up with Detroit's Rise, Fall and
Renewal (offered 2011-2020) and Corktown is Popping! (offered 2015-2020).
Now the partnership with Urban Adventures has ended, but we are still here.
IS BOB THE ONLY TOUR GUIDE?
Mike and Carlos gave several tours over the past couple of years. Jim, Kathy
and Jenny gave some tours too.
CAN KIDS TAKE THE TOURS?
Your children under 6 can join you on a tour free of charge.
For your children age 6 and over, they can join you at the same price as adults.
IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL ONLINE BOOKING FEE?
When you book on our website, the Book Now button takes you to
Fareharbor. We reduced our price on Fareharbor so when they add their
reasonable booking fee, it still comes out to a charge of $100 for up to 4
people or $25 per person.
