Guide Bio

I grew up in the Detroit area and have lived in the city for seven years, hosting travelers and working at D:Hive, the downtown welcome center. I can’t help but share my fascination with this city, so becoming a tour guide was only natural.

I produce a creative project called Zelda and the Unibrows, for which I have performed with an orchestra and at The Kitchen Gallery in New York. I’ve worked in the crew on Hollywood films, produced a dozen albums, performed on the Second City stage, and served in public office.

Backseat Detroit Tours

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. The bad things you’ve heard about Detroit? They're often true. But the good things you haven’t heard are also true.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
