We had the most fantastic tour with Joe recently - it was our first Vayable experience and a really good one. We decided to take Joe's tour as we thought that Detroit would be quite difficult to get to grips with: very few guide books have much to say and things obviously change quite quickly. We're so glad we did! Joe was a pleasure to spend time with; he knows the city really well having spent his whole life there; and he showed us a real variety of things that helped to give a really rounded view of the city.
Joe was generous with his time and gave us some "homework" of great things to check out during the rest of our visit - which we duly did. He also gave us some really good food recommendations which we very happily checked out.
All in all I would advise anyone thinking of visiting Detroit to do a tour with Joe. Having someone show you the positives, as well as the (all-too-often reported) negatives, of this fantastic city can make all the difference.
