Our family of six were on a road trip around the States and we did a tour of Detroit with Joe on a very wet October morning.
Right from the start we knew we had made the right choice. Before heading off in the car Joe gave us an overview of Detroit’s incredible history and the industrial and social changes that have shaped its rise, fall, and rebirth.
We only did a two hour tour but Joe managed to pack in a wide range of Detroit’s diverse neighbourhoods. Joe was honest about Detroit’s problems, but was incredibly optimistic for the city’s future. He clearly loves his hometown.
Our kids range from 9 to 17 and they took pretty much everything in. We’ve heard them talking to their friends about Detroit and it’s all information they picked up from the tour.
So thanks Joe, you helped make our stay in Detroit one of the highlights of our holiday. I would highly recommend Backseat Detroit if you’re planning a tour of the city.
