24 Apr 2013 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.
17 Apr 2013 Never having visited Detroit, I had no idea where to start so I booked the tour. Bob is very personable and knowledgable. We had a wonderful time and I would suggest the tour to anyone visiting Detroit.
25 Aug 2012 This trip is an excellent starting point to a visit to Detroit. Bob showed us the urban history of Detroit written in the ruins and renovations of the downtown area. Finishing with a trip on the People Mover and a beer in the local pub made us feel like we were at home in Detroit! Bob gives a very fair and balanced picture of Detroit life - he doesn't try to hide problems in the modern Detroit situation, and he explains all the opportunities. If you are at all interested in urban design, this tour is a must. We asked Bob at the end of the trip if he would run for public office: with his knowledge and his love for the city, he'd be a great mayor! Thanks for a great tour.
19 Jul 2012 Bob the tourguide is AWESOME. He knows his stuff, and is extremely passionate about the city of Detroit. He integrates a wide range of information about culture, heritage and history of Detroit in his tour. He engaged well in dialogue and employed good sense of humor. Well worth the money.
11 Jun 2012 Bob was great very focused and neutral about the circumstances that brought Detroit to its current condition. Plus he lives right there. Brave man!
