What is Backseat Detroit?
My name is Joseph C. Krause. I offer “backseat driver” tours of Detroit. You drive your own vehicle, and I hop in and guide you through The Motor City. Each tour is customized to your interests and background and covers the city’s history, its rise and fall as an industrial giant, the good and the bad, its past, present and future, and all of the great things that are often overlooked.
In recent years, Downtown has experienced an influx of tens of thousands of new jobs and billions in investment, so I’m now also offering the “Past and Future” public walking tour on weekends, which is augmented by an iPad slideshow of the sites we visit over time. This tour is designed to either stand alone or complement a “Backseat Driver” tour.
