Detroit is well worth seeing and my guide was great

Unintentionally missed the connecting flight in Detorit, the next day had to be killed. What could be more obvious than a city tour in Detroit. Booked quickly in the evening via iPad and the next at 10 o'clock it started. My city guide Dildora was very knowledgeable and informative. Not only did she tell me the actual things, but also lots of little anecdotes about the city. As it turned out, she had lived in Munich for a long time and so unexpectedly I got a city tour in German. All in all a successful day - oh well and the return flight worked out

Through the tour, I saw the city in a completely different, positive light. There were many insights that, in my opinion, cannot be developed in such a beautiful way by someone unfamiliar with the location. With her extensive knowledge of Detroit, Dildora has made this tour an experience. But 2.5 hours are very short for this city.

It has been an excellent way to check out the neighborhood (not just downtown), and to know where to go. Second main benefit is the discussion with someone living there, able to provide some keys to decrypte what I saw during my first day alone.

Super nice guide, were surprised at the many faces of this city! Great
