TOURS OF DETROIT - SINCE 2004 - TOURS OF DETROIT
This two-hour guided walking tour in downtown Detroit is great for visitors and locals.
It includes a mix of history, architecture, art, and Detroit's sports, music, and events, plus
stories of abandoned buildings that dominated downtown, and the stadiums, casinos and
new hotels that have replaced the abandoned buildings.
The tour includes about as much as you can include in a two hour period. We mainly are
going to be outside during the tour. Sometimes we rely on photos to show what interiors of
the buildings look like.
It received great reviews when it was offered from 2011-2020 by Detroit Urban Adventures.
Now Detroit Tour Co is offering basically the same tour (at a lower price, but without the ride
on the People Mover or the beer at the end). Bob will usually be your tour guide.
A maximum of 15 people can sign up for the tour on any given day, so you may be taking the
tour with a group. But we run the tour if anyone signs up. You may get a private tour.
Sign up in advance and pay by credit card.
The tour will run unless it is raining very hard -- so please be prepared to be outside for a
couple of hours in whatever weather we are faced with.
$25 PER PERSON
4:00-6:00 PM / MEET IN FRONT OF 1555 BROADWAY
We're happy to give private tours to small groups.
Book a private tour for 9:30-11:30 am or for 1:00-3:00 pm.
It can be a walking tour of Downtown Highlights, or a version of the walking tour
that we call "Detroit's Rise, Fall & Renewal."
The charge for up to 4 people is $100, and you can include more people for a
price of $25 per person.
We'll meet in front of 1555 Broadway and start the tour at 9:30 am or 1:00 pm.
If you are looking for something other than a private downtown walking tour
of Downtown Highlights or Detroit's Rise, Fall & Renewal (your choice) that starts
at 9:30 am or starts at 1:00 pm, please reach out to us sending an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (313) 701-1900.
We can give tours with various different topics if you let us know in advance.
Downtown scuptures and public art is a nice tour. Downtown skyscrapers is
another nice tour. Detroit Music and Music Venues is another nice tour. And
Detroit's New and Historic Downtown Hotels is a very nice tour.
We can give nice walking tours in Midtown, the Eastern Market District, the
Corktown Neighborhood, or along the Riverwalk. Definitely let us know if you
are interested in one of those walking tours.
If you have a large group, and access to a bus and driver, we are happy to provide
a knowledgeable and friendly guide who will get on the bus and be the tour guide.
Usually Bob will be your guide -- and he has been giving bus tours of Detroit for
more than fifteen years.
The Japanese Business Society of Detroit has hired Bob for several tours. Groups
from many other countries and from many US states have enjoyed bus tours with Bob.
Local groups including school groups and groups from senior living facilities enjoyed
their bus tours too. And for family reunions that take place locally, a bus tour is great.
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 charge a
fee of $225 for a guide to give a general two-hour bus tour for a full motorcoach
that may seat 55 people. And the fee is less if you only expect 20-30 people.
Customized tours can be discussed. We can cover topics like Auto History,
Murals Around Detroit, Historic Churches, or Detroit's African-American History,
Nice Residential Areas of Detroit, etc. Bus tours lasting more than two hours can
be discussed too.
Bob Goldsmith was born in Detroit (many years ago).
He started giving tours of Detroit in 2001.
He has 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,
and Bob came up with walking tours like Detroit's Rise, Fall & Renewal, The D
You Must See, and Corktown is Popping.
For several years, during a nine month tour season, walking tours were offered
six days a week. (Each year Bob gets a bit of help. In recent years, guides like
Mike and Carlos gave a number of tours. Jim, Kathy and Jenny gave some too.)
Now the partnership with Urban Adventures has ended, but we are still here
and operating under the name of Detroit Tour Co.
We are committed to making the "Rise, Fall & Renewal Tour" available to the
public regularly, along with private tours and custom tours.
Bob can also be available for speaking engagements.
