City Tour Detroit Frequently Asked Questions
Oh no! I am late! What do I do? Call 313.757.1283. Most of the time, our staff is leading tours simultaneously and will not be able to return your call until after the tour. If you think you may be late it is best to call before your tour starts. We cannot guarantee you can catch up with your tour, but we will help as much as we are able.
Can I tip my Tour Guide? It is customary to tip tour guides for a job well done!
Do you cancel for bad weather? Tours run light rain (bring umbrella) or shine. In the case of extreme inclement weather conditions or warnings, the decision to run tour or not will be made based on conditions two hours prior to tour. For a day-of tour weather update, call 313.757.1283 or visit our Facebook page.
What should I wear for a walking tour? Michigan is well-known for its crazy weather. It can rain, snow and be sunny all in one afternoon. We encourage everyone to plan ahead and be prepared. Wear layers to help easily adjust to whatever Mother Nature throws at us. Be comfortable and bring your umbrella.
What is your refund policy? ALL SALES ARE FINAL. No refunds or exchanges. In the event of a cancellation by City Tour Detroit, a refund or reschedule will be granted.
Where should I park? For street parking Detroit uses the ParkDetroit mobile app. The City of Detroit monitors the spaces covered by the kiosks from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Using the ParkDetroit app, drivers pay by credit card. You can add time on meters within posted time limits, and the app sends out text alerts 10 minutes before the meter expires. There are various parking structures throughout Detroit also available. Please plan accordingly for time to find parking. ALWAYS LOCK YOUR CAR AND NEVER LEAVE VALUABLES IN PLAIN SIGHT!
