Loved this tour. The Ford Model T was such a great way to travel in Motor City. Belle Isle is stunning, beautiful and as it returns to its once great glory seeing the metamorphosis is awesome. This is a must do in Detroit.

Very little to none. You stop to walk around the fountain but you would not have to get out to enjoy it. The tour is about 2-2.5 hours.
