Decent tour. I've been on walking tours of Detroit before, and this one is on par. It was a pretty basic tour, explaining locations, building architecture, and lots of facts. It wasn't overly passionate like other city tours I've been on in Barcelona or Florence, but for the price, it was great. Bring some water on your trip as well, cause there was only one stop at a hotel for a restroom break, and the drinking fountain wasn't working.

We very much enjoyed the downtown tour of the city. The tour guide and 2 Assistants were very knowledgeable. The pace was very good for the Group. We enjoyed archetectural points, historical points, and a Great group to chat with along the way. I highly recommend Preservation Deteoit and intend to do additional tours.

I would HIGHLY recommend Preservation Detroit's guided tours to anyone wishing to learn more about Detroit and all that the City has to offer. The guides are fantastic, engaging and enthusiastic about what they do. We plan on scheduling other tours with Preservation Detroit over the next month!

I would say the tour-guide was really bad. Knowledge was not good at all... There was a second guy who was "new", he had more insightful information... and he was obviously reading from the notes which gave him the correct info but the actual guy was just not prepared. The teamwork thing is great but they need to work it out better , practice!

Wonderful tour. Be prepared to walk about 3 miles. Full of interesting information. The guide should ask all in group where they are from as an ice-breaker.

From Our Editors

Preservation Detroit, founded in 1975, is Detroit's oldest and one of the largest group dedicated to historic preservation. Over the past four decades, the non-profit preservation organization has become a leading advocate for the protection and rehabilitation of Detroit's historic homes, skyscrapers, and culturally rich sites. They have used a variety of educational and research programs, along with advocacy and awareness campaigns to help grow support for the conservation Detroit's built heritage. Part of this mission includes encouraging the redevelopment of neighborhoods throughout the city around these historic structures, providing an anchor for residential areas and helping increase economic investment.

An all-volunteer organization, Preservation Detroit's volunteers and members continue to nurture their community's passion for historical treasures through lectures, seasonal newsletters, and tours. The organization continues to live up to its name; in 2014 they helped conduct a historic preservation resource survey that recorded property-by-property information in six historic Detroit district, and most recently, their advocacy efforts have played a large part in sparing both the State Savings Bank and the Eddystone Hotel from demolition.
