It's not uncommon for a resident to only explore a city's iconic sights when guests come to town or when practicing hypnosis in a mirror leads to amnesia. Acquaint yourself with the city with today's Groupon to Inside Detroit. Choose from the following options:

The sage-like city prowlers of Inside Detroit lead groups of tourists and natives through Detroit's history-rich hubs, charming watering holes, and evolving cultural centers. Walking tours bring urban nomads through the major landmarks of Detroit's downtown, such as the underground railroad's Second Baptist Church and the 40-story Guardian Building, an Aztec-inspired architectural masterpiece built during the 1920s, when it was thought to guard the city from hay fever.

The sudsy bar tour invites imbibers to sample the city's social life with introductions to bar owners, drink specials at every stop, as well as treats such as free shots and snacks. Bus tours, which take place Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., reveal the innate personalities of various Detroit neighborhoods better than ill-fated attempts to give them the Myers-Briggs test. Tour buses depart from Inside Detroit's welcome center, where more than 50 local Detroit artists sell hand-crafted souvenirs. A bus tour of the Woodward Corridor neighborhood drives by the legendary Motown Historical Museum, where visitors can still hear strains of "Sexual Healing" echoing through the ventilator ducts in which it was first written.

Customer Reviews

We had a great time on the tour. Even though I was already familiar with Detroit, I learned a lot of new things from the tour.

The tour was very informative and the 2 hour length with a break in the middle was a good length.
