The walking-tour guide, Bob, was very prepared -- lots of personal-knowledge information he has lived downtown for a number of years, printed materials and historical photos of many of the buildings and neighborhoods he was describing, and a very good choice of which interesting buildings to enter and look around up close. Positive and upbeat, but always realistic, about the renewal part of Detroit's evolution. I came away with a much, much better understanding of Detroit's development and its current situation.

This was a cool walking tour with a quick look at the history of downtown Detroit, the architecture and the plan to continue revitalization. Tour given by Bob, who lives and works downtown. Great guide.
