I’ve been on the diamond jacks tour several times in my personal and professional life. I’ve taken many groups of seniors with wheelchairs and walker and my very own family as well. Always a beautiful tour of the river!read more

Good time out on the water. There's alot of historic landmarks along the river. It's nothing fancy but for $15.00 you can't beat it.

Lovely tour along the Detroit River exploring landmarks and history. As a Detroit native I was able to learn even more about the city and our neighbors in Windsor. This is a "Must Do" excursion for out of town guest and more

Absolutely outstanding. First, easy to find and easy parking. Second, all of the employees were outstanding greeting everyone and explain the Covid rules and regulations. The tour information was perfect. Just the right amount. (Great job tour guide guy 😊). Social distancing and mask wearing rules adhered to very nicely. I highly recommend Diamond Jack's and will be back!read more

One hour tour up the Detroit River with a commentator pointing out buildings and places of interest. Then up the river looking at Windsor, also with the commentator pointing out places of interest. Learned a lot about Detroit that I never knew and I’ve lived in this area since 1989.THE PRICE CAN’T BE BEAT! $10 US for Seniors and it was $15 for my 17 year old grandson. He was visiting from Grand Rapids and throughly enjoyed the tour😁. Snack bar with soda, wine, beer and snacks for sale. $3 for soda.I recommend this excursion for ALL age groups. Children are welcome aboard. Not sure of the more

Very nice, peaceful, relaxing, and informative boat tour. I mainly loved 2 things. First, the tour guide did not talk too much. She was very informative when passing by historic sites, etc, but also did not just keep talking and making filler conversation. There was ample time to just sit in peace and enjoy the lake. Second, we got to see both the US (Detroit) side and the Canada (Windsor) side with history for both. Overall, I highly recommend and would do it more
