Bob was a knowledgable and friendly guide. The tour showed Detroit in a much more positive sense than what is portrayed through the media. I will be recommending the tour to my friends.

Bob is a conscientious, friendly and well-spoken tour leader. He has a genuine love for the city of Detroit, and great knowledge about the history and geography. His tour takes you through the key aspects of the rise and fall of the city, and it's current state of attempted rebirth. Detroit is an extraordinary urban environment, and Bob's tour gives you a nice cross-section of the Downtown. The pace of the tour is appropriate - there is quite a bit of walking, but all of it is on level ground, and very few stairs. If you're in Detroit and have never thought about touring the city, book yourself on to one of Bob's tours. You'll have a great experience and learn a lot.

For our first visit in Detroit with only two nights booked - our family of four took the Rise-Fall-Renewal tour with Bob in order to learn as much as we could about the city. I liked the fact that Bob goes beyond the city's usual portrayal of crime, poverty and ruin and focuses on the positive changes seen over the last decade. For anyone interested in architecture, urban planning or the encapsulated history of a once great American metropolis - this tour is perfect. Would love to see bike tours of the downtown area. The lack of vehicular traffic on week-ends makes it an ideal place to ride.

As an architect and planner, I really enjoyed Bob's knowledge about the history of the buildings. The fact that he was a resident of downtown Detroit made it all the more interesting.
