Experience our Rum-Running Detroit Prohibition Tour! Hop on board and enjoy a fun-filled, rollicking ride through the streets of Detroit. Explore the old stomping grounds of the Purple Gang and their rivals. Hear stories and fun facts spiked with a few grizzly details...and learn about Al Capone's mark on Detroit. See famous landmarks and sites including the Old Warehouse District, Eastern Market, the old Germantown neighborhood, and the International Riverfront, where Liquid Gold flowed in from Windsor, Canada. Smuggle some booze of your own (yes you can bring your own drink on the bus, just make sure to use a covered, non-glass container, like a snazzy flask) as we explore a former speakeasy or two and a historic brewery. Revel in the rich history of Jazz in Detroit and experience great live music at Bert's Jazz Club to top off a fabulous night!
For a uniquely fun evening out in the D, gather up a group of friends, family, club members, convention buddies or co-workers...AND ring us up to say: "Moe told me I BETTER call ya." Your guide will be decked out, so dress up in snazzy duds from the Prohibition era. Costumes are optional but encouraged and prizes will be awarded!
Cost: $49 per person
