Audio tours are nice because you can do them in your own time. This specific tour had some glitches with the app and wasn’t as easy to use as ones we’ve used previously. As a neutral point, it mentions going inside a couple of buildings to see more but we weren’t comfortable doing so.

I enjoyed the self guided tour. I saw the heart of Detroit at my leisure. and I also learned the Detroits Awsome history.

Very nice activity. A little longer would have made it even better
