Awesome and informative! The buildings we visited held so much history and architecture. The artwork on the people mover I loved that I took pics of each station. I would recommend everyone take this tour when visiting Detroit! Bob is excellent!

It was so nice to see Detroit through Bob's eyes - and with his knowledgeable insight into the changes from the early 1900s to today. A special touch was a trip to the Ford building (not the Ford of the automobile) and to see the...More
