    We see the good and the bad in town, but we always stay safe and never go into abandoned buildings. Crime downtown is lower than the national average for the U.S.

  • Bring up to ten people in your vehicle, so long as there's still room for me!

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.
