How far in advance should I book?

Yes. When you pay for your bus, you also pay for the services of a fully certified driver. You aren’t allowed to drive your own bus, but the good news is that you can relax and enjoy the services of a professional.

Located in the middle of Detroit, DIA has more than 100 galleries, making it one of the biggest art museums in the U.S. The collection includes art created by luminaries like Diego Rivera, Pablo Picasso, Caravaggio, and Frida Kahlo. You’ll also find an incredible assortment of works by Black artists at the General Motors Center for African American Art.
Focused on the ideas of transportation and invention, this museum contains exhibits on race cars, Presidential limousines, trains, and the history of flight. You can even see famous vehicles like the limousine where John F. Kennedy was assassinated and the bus where Rosa Parks began her world-changing boycott. If you’re bringing students, don’t miss the hands-on activities in the Mathematics exhibit.
This island in the middle of the Detroit River provides a home for a wide array of attractions. If you’d like to spend some time outside, take your group to the disc golf course, playground, or walking trails. Belle Isle has more to offer than just parks, though. You can also visit the island’s aquarium, its conservatory, or its museum dedicated to the Great Lakes.
You can’t visit Detroit without learning about the history of Motown. Hitsville, U.S.A. owner Berry Gordy began welcoming musicians in 1959, and throughout the 60s and 70s Motown was probably the most influential recording studio in America. Esther Gordy Edwards founded the museum in 1985, and it now includes the famous Studio A, where Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and The Temptations recorded, and the apartment where Berry Gordy used to live with his family. Both locations are packed with Motown records, photographs, and posters.
General Motors’ Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit isn’t just the company’s headquarters. It’s the site of a Marriott hotel, an abundance of restaurants and stores, and a food court. Spend the day shopping, and then let your group pick where they want to eat while you gaze at the cars on display or at the Detroit River visible through the windows.
The Detroit Zoo is famous for its polar bears and for its train that’s beloved by kids. But that’s not all the zoo has to offer. You’ll find more than 2,000 animals here, including penguins, giraffes, lions, prairie dogs, and North American river otters. The Zoo also offers discounts for groups of 15+ people, so it’s a great place to go while on a charter bus tour.
Cheer on the Detroit Tigers at this ballpark adorned with tiger statues and a 50-foot Ferris wheel. You can also choose from an eclectic selection of food that ranges from bahn mi to Beyond Burgers and alcohol-infused ice cream sandwiches. Kids will love the Comerica Carousel, which has 30 hand-painted tigers for them to ride.
First opened in 1928 as a movie theater, this theater is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s worth visiting just to see the enormous gilded ceiling and elegant gold frame surrounding the stage, but you can also plan to catch a show from performers like Celtic Woman, Jay Leno, and Blue Man Group.
Ideal for longer trips and large groups, full-size charter buses can hold up to 56 people and include onboard restrooms. You can also request amenities like reclining seats, WiFi, and flat-screen TVs to help your group relax.
If you need to get a small group around the city quickly and don’t want to contend with rideshares, minibuses are a great option. Each minibus has overhead storage compartments for small bags, and you can request flat-screen TVs, a DVD player, and WiFi onboard.
