Distinctive excursions can set a meeting apart. So consider offering your group a photography tour of Detroit. 

The Detroit Bus Co. offers three tours for budding photographers with an eye for the city’s beauty. The four-hour tours focus on street art, architecture and Belle Isle, respectively.

Each tour can accommodate up to 42 people and has a professional photographer on board to help participants make the most of their experience and take the best photographs. 

“Chances are they’ll leave the tour learning something new about photography and the city,” says Joshua Hanford, the company’s creative director. “Not to mention they’ll have a bunch of great photographs to show off.”

Groups can hop in with a regularly scheduled tour, or book their own. “Some small customization is okay, but building an entirely different tour takes a lot of time and effort to guarantee a good experience, so we don’t venture too far from our standard tours,” Hanford says.
