Bus Tours are a great way to get the lay of the land in a new city. The bus tours listed below will introduce the City of Detroit (and its suburbs) through its architecture, history, culture, neighborhoods and legends. They are both interesting and educational. To help you get started, here is a list of Metro-Detroit Bus Tours.
If you're a Ghost Hunters
fan, you'll love taking a tour of Detroit that explores the metro area from the unique point of view of Haunted Detroit Tours. Armed with the tools of the trade -- EMF detectors, digital cameras, infra-red thermometers -- the bus tours take you to several historic sites that are rumored to be haunted. Tour guides detail the history and lore associated with the sites along the way. The cost is $30 per person (14 and older), and the tour starts in Clawson, Michigan. The regularly scheduled tours are seasonal and begin in October. Private tours can be arranged over the summer.
The Good...The Bad...And The Hopeful
bus tour takes place on Saturdays twice a month. It lasts approximately three hours, costs $25 a person and visits landmarks and unique neighborhoods that are riddled with history and lore. Feet on the Streets often mixes it up with other bus themes, including architecture, Hamtramck, Mexicantown, jazz, nostaligia, casinos, Eastern Market, Midtown, the Arts, History & Culture and Sports. Feet on the Streets also offers customized tours for which you can choose the mode of transportation and theme.
