SemSeg's Segway experts equip urban explorers to cruise through Detroit at up to 12.5 miles per hour during self-guided tours. A brief orientation covers proper techniques for turning, stopping, and impromptu jousting. Then, motorists hop aboard scooters and travel up to 24 miles on a single charge. The long battery life allows motorists to cruise down the Riverfront, circle 14-acre Hart Plaza, and crisscross the Rivard Plaza in a single trip. Though SemSeg encourages DIY tours, their guides lead weekend tours through downtown and down the Riverwalk.

Tour routes are entirely customizable, Krause is a wealth of knowledge on any trip, which can last anywhere from a few hours up to an entire day.

Fueled by the passion of winemaker and obsessive-compulsive grape-stomper Lisa Berry, Vintner's Cellar offers several wines fermented in Royal Oak. During your tasting, you'll get to sample five different wines from a diverse range of red, white, fruit, and specialty libations. You'll also get to snack on cheese, crackers, grapes, and crackery grapecheese creations while soaking in the lively décor of intermingling dark and vivid tones like a sponge tuxedo. The wine tasting is good for two people, so buddy up or carefully wheel a frenemy's bed to the cellar before he or she wakes up.

The instructors at A&R Aviation showcase the open skies above Oakland Troy Airport as students enjoy casual discovery flights or train to earn a pilot?s license. During instructional flights, instructors place pupils in front of the steering column of a pair of Cessna aircraft?models 150 and 172. The flying machines are kept up to date by an FAA-certified maintenance professional, allowing the student to focus on real world training scenarios without fearing real world technical difficulties, like when nacho cheese is accidentally spilled all over the cockpit.

When A&R's pilots aren't teaching others how to fly, they can be found ferrying people through the skies on sightseeing expeditions. On romantic flights, which showcase the dazzling views of the Detroit skyline at night, couples sip sparkling cider and nibble on chocolates among a sea of rose petals.

It would take a lot of planning and gas money to visit all of Michigan's 125 breweries. Luckily, Motor City Brew Tours has perfected the brewery tour, taking visitors to three different breweries during five-hour bus jaunts. You might head to beer-making facilities in downtown Detroit, Ann Arbor, or Ferndale, where you'll spend about an hour at each brewery learning about its fermentation process, sampling its libations, and challenging the brewmaster in a sing-off of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall." Participants can also join in on walking or biking tours, or hop on a bus to one of Michigan's beer festivals.

The Social Connection scans the cultural horizons of Detroit and plots to add an extra dose of fun to all it has to offer. One example: Gears and Beers Tours take participants around the city's bars and historic neighborhoods. For more than a decade, The Social Connection has been putting together viewing parties all across the city, in glamorous spots such as chartered yachts, rather than just in houses with their roofs sawed off. The other 364 days of the year, the team stays just as busy putting together network-expanding events such as dinner parties, pub crawls, and craft-liquor tastings.
