When was the last time you visited Windsor? Not since your 21st? Join us on our journey over the border this Sunday! On this tour, you’ll see major developments as well as unique shops, one-of-a-kind restaurants, and some of Windsor’s great historical sites. At DXF, we’re always coming up with new and exciting ways to experience Detroit and we have two other brand new tours to do just that!

STEM DETROIT KIDS TOUR WITH THE MICHIGAN SCIENCE CENTER

You hear a lot about the many opportunities for grown ups to have a good time downtown, but even more fun can be had by children. This tour will take you on a visual scavenger hunt through downtown Detroit where children will have to find beautiful plants and animals in the art and architecture showcased on the tour.
