Mom, one teen girl and a second exchange student teen girl took a Saturday AM tour with Pat. One other adult joined us. 1. Pat's Chrysler van had at least 2-3 sun roofs which made it very easy to see the tall buildings from inside the van. Van is very easy to enter/exit due to the sliding second row captains... More

We spent 3 hours plus on a private tour with Pat and it was absolutely superb. We could have gone even longer--so much to see. Pat is knowledgeable, clearly loves the city and provides interesting commentary on both the positive and negative. What joy to see so much vibrancy and progress in this great American city! I highly recommend this... More

I was visiting a friend who recently moved back to the area after a very long time away. I had never been to the city so a tour seemed in order for both of us. I will confess I had a preconceived notion of the city and it wasn't pretty. So I was fascinated to see and hear about all... More

I can't say enough good things about our wonderful experience with Pat, our tour director, showing us unique parts of Detroit. As a lifelong Detroiter, I'm embarrassed to say I'd never been inside the Guardian Building, an incredible example of Art Deco architecture. Pat gave outstanding background commentary and gave us time inside on our own to explore its magnificence.... More

We went on this tour with very close friends and were completely pleased. Pat (our guide) was wonderful--talked clear, used a microphone in her beautifully appointed custom tour van with comfortable seats and plenty of roof open windows to help us see tall points of interest, spent as much time as we wanted on the tour, was very knowledgable about...

First of all, the tour guide was wonderful--patient, flexible and knowledgeable! We were with a friendly group of people who loved to learn. We saw office buildings--my favorite being the Art Deco Guardian Bldg,, Outsider Art--the Heidelberg Project, neighborhoods, and learned about how Detroit is being remade. Fascinating tour.

This tour is a "must do" Pat gave us a little taste and provided us with the knowledge I wanted to know about Detroit, a city we've never been to but love their football team. I would recommend this tour to all visitors of Detroit. Pat also gave us a great tip for a restaurant. Seldan Standard is the best... More

We were staying in Windsor Ontario Canada and wanted to see Detroit because it is just across the river. Not knowing what to expect nor how safe Detroit might be, I found this tour on the net, noted the details so we could book when there. Show Me Detroit Tours picked us up near the tunnel on the US side... More

Our private tour with Pat was perfect for our "out-of-town" visitors. Pat's knowledge of Detroit and it's history was a great backdrop to the revitalization that we saw. It was a beautiful day and a fabulous tour. Thank-you Pat for your high-level customer service and treating my guests so warmly!
