WHAT IS THE TOUR SEASON?
Since 2021, we have offered tours all year long, but peak season for 2022 is May through October.
HOW MANY DAYS A WEEK ARE TOURS AVAILABLE?
Our Daily Downtown Detroit Walking Tours are offered everyday at 4 PM. Private Walking Tours and Guides for Bus or Van Tours are offered any day as long as they are scheduled in advance.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE USUALLY ON YOUR DAILY TOURS?
We run tours for one or two people, our maximum is ten people per tour.
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE LARGER GROUPS?
Yes. We have additional tour guides available to help us with larger groups.
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.
DO YOU NEED TO BE IN GOOD CONDITION FOR THESE WALKING TOURS?
You need to be able to stand for most of the time, and walk at a leisurely pace. We cover about 1.5 miles over 2 hours, never more than a couple of blocks at once, and there are plenty of stops along the way.
DO WE NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH US FOR THESE TOURS?
Other than comfortable walking shoes, and appropriate clothing for the weather, you might want to bring a bottle of water and a small snack.
IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL ONLINE BOOKING FEE?
No. The advertised price or agreed upon price for a tour is the exact amount you will pay.
WHAT ARE YOUR CANCELLATION OR RESCHEDULING POLICIES FOR BAD WEATHER?
We generally continue tours for moderately bad weather, and only cancel for severe weather.
DO YOU OFFER ANY OTHER TOURS BESIDES YOUR DAILY WALKING TOUR?
Yes. We can do private walking tours for groups of 4 or more, and those tours can be scheduled most mornings or afternoons with advance booking. We also offer step-on guides for bus or van tours of the downtown area, or other parts of the Detroit Metro Area.
DO YOU OFFER TOURS OF OTHER PARTS OF DOWNTOWN BESIDES YOUR REGULAR ROUTE?
Yes. We have done tours of the Corktown area, The Eastern Market, The Detroit Riverfront, and other parts of Detroit, and continue to offer those options for our private walking tours.
