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 private 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.
If you don’t have a car, have a group too big to fit in your vehicle, or simply want to get out of your car, I also offer walking tours. These tours are just as flexible as the ride-around tours. We may incorporate the QLINE streetcar or elevated Detroit People Mover rail into this tour, as well.
If your group exceeds ten people, please call or email to plan.
