Can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this. Jessie and Tom are great hosts and a wealth of knowledge about buildings we visited as well as Detroit in general.
Best Access to Detroit’s underbelly.

The tour was fantastic. The best part is participants get to wander at will through massive sites. Very intense, often depressing, but too real....Hope this continues!
Great Tour

Perfect for everybody who wants to see the typical abandoned buildings, like the Chrysler factory, churches and schools. Jesse and his driver were very friendly and told us a lot about Detroit.

Jesse and his driver Tom are extremely friendly and knowledgable people, making for a tour full of insights. Starting point is in a safe neighborhood, parking is no problem.
Excellent tour for anyone who loves Urban Exploring

Out of many tours I've been on, this has to be one of the best. I enjoy Urban Exploration photography quite a lot but have not been to Detroit.. that being said, the tour guide was incredibly knowledgable and knew his stuff in regards to history in Detroit as well as photography. He knew some excellent locations and the itinerary was well planned. If I had the chance to, I would even say I'd do this tour again.
Real people with something to say and show.

This tour is a gentle but intellectual look at the grittier side of Detroit. It’s thoughtfully put together by people who love and respect Detroit. It’s different, it’s exciting and you learn a lot from all you see and feel. You can’t help but love Detroit too when your intro comes from a tour like this. Highly recommended.....

Had a great tour. Love that it was a smaller group of 8. We visited 5 sites 2 were next to each other. I got some great photos and a small history lesson from our tour guide as well. The tour kept a good pace, and our guide gave us plenty of time to explore the areas on our own.

I loved the information and the locations were awesome. It was a great adventure. The only downside was that water was not provided as promised and the air conditioned coach was a small school bus with blowing air. This could have been overlooked if it hadn't been so hot. That being said I would take this trip again.
