Took the up the river tour that lasted 2 hours. On tour we did see some nice houses but hardly anything else. There were extended periods of none talking from the guide. This tour was definitely very low key with a large group of passengers...More

This tour boat company offers two different tours from this dock. One goes up the river and the other goes down river past Bob Lo Island. The tour announcers are so knowledgeable about the area. Nice trips.

This is by far the best tour of Detroit. The announcers are well informed and comical and point out everything of interest on both the American and Canadian sides of the river. The views are stunning. After heading upstream towards Lake St. Clair, the boats...More

This is a nice tour to take along the river. The guide described a lot of the history surrounding both sides of the river, United States and Canada.

This tour is definitely not worth the money. There is very little history. The majority of the tour takes you past industrial sites. I would consider it to be very boring
