This city is worth living, in depth. Come ride with us.

 

Modern life can be mundane, whether you’re in Detroit or Paris. But there is so much life, vitality and deep-rooted richness all around us at all times here: sometimes we need to be gently shaken. Come see the city with fresh eyes.

Scofflaws and Speakeasies: Detroit Prohibition Tour

Celebrate Repeal with us!

Wise guys and sassy dames: we’re celebrating Repeal in style by digging up some real history on Detroit’s shady past. Our fair city was front and center in the great experiment that was Prohibition. We’re chock-full of rum-runners, booze hijackers, home brewers and full-out horn-playing, jazz-trumpeting, gin-swilling criminals and colorful characters. So strap on your fedoras and your fancy shoes, we’re hitting the town and partying like it’s 1929!

Brewed in Detroit: DBC Brewery Tour

A Craft Beer Odyssey

Detroit, once home to dozens of breweries, is roaring back with more and more fantastic craft beers. Hop on board and explore Detroit’s brewing history, from good old Bernhard Stroh to the newest and tiniest (but not to be disparaged) spots. We’ll sample some samples and sniff some hops while we hop around town. There’s a reason USA Today named Michigan a Top Five Brewing State, and we’re going to find out why.

O Pioneers! Early Detroit History Tour

The Detroit History You Wished You’d Learned in School

Henry Ford does not appear on this tour. We’re going way further back than that. Detroit is one of the oldest cities in the Midwest–heck, it’s one of the oldest in the country. We’ve got 17 years on “Old” New Orleans, and in fact we sent that fair town a fellow we here at DBC affectionately call Tony the Moth back in 1710. Scoundrels and saviors, imposters and heroes, priests and prostitutes and everyone in between: we’ll learn the deep, deep history of Detroit they never taught you about. You’ll wish they had.

DBC Presents: Detroit’s Underground Railroad

Explore Detroit’s unique and uplifting history with us

Detroit was the terminus for many former slaves escaping to freedom on the Underground Railroad. A well-connected network of conductors aided refugees on their way to a new life in Canada, providing guidance and helping them avoid capture on this final leg of their dangerous journey north. Travel with us as we retrace the steps of the unknown thousands who arrived at “Midnight”, the code name for Detroit, and crossed the Detroit River–also known as the River Jordan in Underground Railroad lingo. We’ll learn how heroes like Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth and John Brown helped make Detroit a beacon of hope for many years.

The Rocky Road to Corktown

A Detroit Irish History Tour

Murphys and Burkes and O’Sheas and more, Detroit’s Irish history contains loads of colorful character from Corktown and beyond. We have politicians and cops galore, movers and shakers of Detroit’s inner circles and marginalized outliers. And hey, did you know that “galore” is an Irish Gaelic word? From the cobbled streets of historic Corktown’s homes, pubs and social halls to nineteenth-century Irish mobs to Henry Ford’s Fair Lane property (named after his grandfather’s home in County Cork) we’ll explore Detroit’s rich Hibernian heritage. And we’ll stop for a wee pint at the end. Sláinte!

Hibernian Hijinks: DBC Irish Pub Crawl

A DBC Irish Pub Crawl

Not your typical harps and shamrocks junk here. This one is a full-on Detroit Irish history tour, with perhaps an emphasis on the pubbier portion of the evening. So if you know your whiskey from your whisky and you also know that “The Last Unicorn” is not in fact the Irish national anthem, join us for some shenanigans, Detroit style. We’ll be hitting some fine Irish pubs and hoisting a pint or three.
