Detroit may have been founded in 1701, by the French explorer and adventurer Antoine Laumet de La Mothesieur de Cadillac, but it was his wife Marie who decided much of the town's original layout. From the very beginning Detroit has been a dame’s town. Home to broads, women, cats, ladies, and Rosies, the Motor City’s story is interlaced with the triumphs, adventures, dalliances and deeds of its female inhabitants. Join Detroit History Tours on a four and a half hour bus tour of some of their stories. From Madam Cadillac to Motown greats, prostitutes to murderers, cults to saints and so much more. We’ll talk civil war spies and prohibition smuggling. You’ll learn the verdict of the first all-female jury in Michigan and the story of a woman known as "Rocking Chair." Together we will enjoy drinks at two of Detroit’s historic bars. It promises to be one hell of a lady's (and gentleman's) night on The Detroit History Tours- Wild Women of Detroit tour.

Because drinking and swearing come with the history, all public bus tours are a strict 21 years old and older. (To date the oldest person to come on one of our tours was 97 years of aged awesomeness. We've also hosted a 21st birthday party, and everyone in between!). Alcoholic beverages are NOT allowed on the bus. Bottled water is provided at no cost and guests may bring snacks or nonalcoholic beverages on board. Both of the evenings bar stops do NOT serve food.

The tour leaves promptly at 6:30 PM from Eastern Market (2934 Russell Street, Detroit MI 48207 ) The bus will meet you near Shed Three. Boarding starts at 6:15 pm, consider arriving early or staying after the tour to enjoy the bars and restaurants of the market.
