Informative, fun, safe, and engaging tours

Short and long, tough and easy, Wheelhouse offers a variety of experiential guided tours that explore various Detroit neighborhoods and themes. They are designed to be informative, safe and fun.

Our engaging guides are Detroiters who like nothing more than to share the story of our city with their guests. Each tour also has a trained sweeper that helps keep the group together and can handle any mechanical issues that might arise.

We respect the rules of the road. We aim to maintain a pace of 8-10 miles per hour and cap our tours at 15 riders to ensure a personal experience. Check out our Tour FAQ page for more information. 

Wheelhouse bikes are available for just $10 additional for each tour. If you'd prefer to ride your own bike, we recommend hybrids or road bikes. Clip-ins are not recommended. Helmets are required; if you don't have one of your own, we will be happy to lend one to you.

Did you know?

We design many of our neighborhood tours with a community partner organization. This way, we can be sure that the most accurate — and interesting — information is shared with our riders. These partners also receive a portion of our tour proceeds, so your money goes back into the community that you explored.
