Learn the bootleggers secrets and see where they hid out. Have lunch at a famous Speakeasy with the legendary Bertha Thomas. Of course, music was a big part of the speakeasies and the resident piano player “Fingers” will tickle the ivories with tunes from that era and Bertha will tickle your funny bone with a couple of songs.

See the courtroom at MacKenzie Hall (one of the oldest buildings in the city). Visit the church made famous by the gun toting “Fighting Parson”. Reverend Leslie Spracklin along with the help of the temperance woman will tell the story of “The Fighting Parson” and how he fought the bootleggers and owners of the blind pigs and speakeasies with fists and guns.

Visit the waterfront of Detroit river and hear stories of the unique methods used to smuggle liquor across it. View the mansions built with rum running profits—The Hiram Walker Home, Wilistead Manor, and more.

Join us for an educational, comical, musical bus tour with great food and fun! Lunch is included today.

Proof of citizenship is required for this tour.
