Detroit Experiences

Detroit is a destination for everyone, with a ton of not-to-be-missed to-dos no matter your interest or tastes.

Below is a small selection of the tours we can organise for you when you have booked your USA holiday with us and are visiting Detroit.  

The Henry Ford Estate is a private non-profit funded by the generosity of the Ford family, Ford Dealers, and donors who are recognized on the Donor Wall, and special grants from supportive institutions. 

To date, much of the gardens, grounds, and main house have been restored by skilled professionals, artisans, and craftspeople to authentically reflect the original look and feel of the home as Clara and Henry knew it. But a large amount of work remains. A small hard-working team is restoring the expansive estate to preserve the estate of an iconic couple so that future generations can understand the impact the Fords had on the world.

Fair Lane provides an immersive experience to learn the extraordinary story of the Ford family in the intimate setting of their living room, their dining room, their gardens throughout the estate. This National Historic Landmark will serve as the platform for visitors and future generations to experience.

The Detroit Princess has been well received from day one. When researching the options to bring a boat-style restaurant to Detroit,Detroit princess really wanted to provide something that Detroit that had been missing since the late 1980s. For almost a century the Boblo Boats SS Ste. Claire and SS Columbia entertained Detroiters on the river, but they sadly were sold in 1991. Until the Detroit Princess Riverboat’s arrival in 2005 the riverfront felt a tad bit empty, and the Detroit princess riverboat happily filled the role as Detroit’s premier riverboat experience ever since.



Detroit Princess Riverboat Highlights

  • 30,000 Square Feet of Dining & Event Space
  • 1900 Total Passenger Capacity
  • Top cruising speed of 10 mph

Motown Museum is the ongoing heartbeat of the Motown legacy—a global tourist destination for music and history fans that celebrates the authentic story of Motown from its humble beginnings, to its emergence as the “Sound of Young America” and beyond. The Museum brings together fans, people and ideas from different generations and it captures the imagination to fuel dreams and inspire accomplishments.

As an irresistible force of social and cultural change, the legendary Motown portfolio made its mark not just on the music industry, but society at large, with a signature Motown Sound that has become one of the most significant musical accomplishments and stunning success stories of the 20th century.

The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the preservation of the birthplace of the Model T and the interpretation and celebration of Detroit’s automotive heritage and spirit of innovation.

The Model-T Automotive Heritage Complex, Inc., (doing business as) the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, was organized in 2000 as a nonprofit organization for the purpose of preserving the Plant and keeping it from being demolished. Open year round as a Museum and education center, the plant now attracts visitors from around the world. It provides special programs and events for bus tours, families, and scores of people attending public and private events from car shows to weddings.
