This tour, "The Rise, Fall and Renewal of Detroit, MI" is an excellent balance to the news media. Bob paints an honest yet encouraging way to see Detroit, and you will learn things you wouldn't have, without Bob's sharing! Don't miss it

Had very good tour, supported by good weather. We saw nice parts of downtown and good background information. Bob does not give "teaching" lessons more like story telling and lively interaction with participants. Interesting even for inhabitants of greater Detroit area. Clear recommendation.
