What is a Sightseeing Tour?

A sightseeing tour is a guided tour of popular and interesting attractions in the local area. Usually done in a group setting, sightseeing tours allow people to explore significant attractions in the region. When you join our Detroit sightseeing tour, you will be taken on a boat ride along the Detroit River. One of our knowledgeable tour guides will give detailed narration of the various points of interest along the river.

Soft drinks, beer, wine, and snacks are available for purchase on board at our snack bar. Enjoy chips, candy bars, pretzels and cookies while cruising and check out our beer options including Miller Lite, Molson, Summer Shandy and Atwater Dirty Blonde.

Food and beverages are NOT allowed to be brought on the boat.

Snack bar items may be purchased with cash or credit card.
