Let D Tours show you a different side of Detroit

D Tours is located in the Compuware Building.
Not a fan of trying to navigate the roads in downtown Detroit? Want to get to know the city beyond the two or three blocks surrounding the ballparks? Maybe you should check out D Tours.

This little start-up company - founded by a guy they call Mr. Detroit, Mark Denson - takes people on tours of the downtown area, from walking tours that stop in at a handful of bars, to bus tours that serve up info on some of Detroit's historical landmarks. There's even a Segway tour, which we assume refrains stopping at any beer halls.
The bus tours cost $20, and the walking tours are $15 and include drink discounts and appetizers. You can also try what they call a Walking Dinner Tour, during which you'll stop at a handful of restaurants/bars, eating appetizers at one, dinner at the next, and then drinks and so on.

Your tour can be reserved to include only your private little group, or you can sign up to jump in on one of their public tours. D Tours is located in the lower level of the Compuware Building. For more info, you can visit them online at, or call 888-416-5060.
