First, let me thank you (and Jon) again for the delightful mural tour. My friend and I enjoyed the artwork, the back stories and the feeling of vibrancy in the whole Eastern Market area.
I wanted to tell you how much our guests enjoyed your tours. We had very many positive comments. The folks that went with you were interested to see the City and were very excited to get a little bit of the inside story and some history. Thanks so much and good luck down the road.

All of us in my family group thoroughly enjoyed the murals tour last weekend! We're putting the murals week event on our calendars for next year.

Thank you Feet on the Street! Our travel club loves the service you provide! We have sold out each of our Eastern Market Tours and can't wait to have you take us through Corktown and Mexicantown this Fall. Keep up the great work!

The Amazing Grays (Retireee Group) of Redford Aldersgate United Methodist Church was unanimous in its praise for the Feet on the Street Tour: "Detroit: Up-Close and Personal - Past, Present, and Future." The bus for pick-up for the tour arrived early at the church - a pleasant surprise. On almost every other tour we have taken, the bus has arrived late or so close to the departure time that people had to scramble to get on. The bus was comfortable and the driver was excellent. Linda Yellin, our guide, and director of Feet on the Street Tours, was friendly, fun, efficient, knowledgeable and cognizant of the needs of the group members. Her knowledge of the history of Detroit was extensive and group members were impressed with how she conducted the tour. People left the tour with a much greater understanding and appreciation for Detroit than when they had begun the tour. Our stop at Rivard Riverfront Plaza was timed perfectly - about an hour and a half into the tour - so that people could stretch their legs and use the facilities. The lunch at the Maccabees' Bistro was enjoyed by all - the Lone Ranger sandwich was a great hit! People also appreciated Linda's thoughtfulness for purchasing cookies at Eastern Market for the group. We enjoyed munching on our dessert cookies as we departed for home after a very enjoyable day. The Amazing Grays will most certainly use Feet on the Street Tours again.

I traveled 250 miles to attend the Come Hungry, Leave Happy, Learn Healthier tour and earn social work CEU credit. Linda was very interesting and informed, I loved the program, and I gained so much cultural exposure. I came away with a wealth of new information and an appreciation of the Eastern Market area and its history.

Enjoyed the Eastern Market tour, hadn't been there in a long time, enjoyed meeting business owners, loved Linda's enthusiasm!
Great meeting and tour...I stayed down there for the last Third Thursday of the season in Eastern Market and had a great time as well. Much to see, do, eat and drink!

I have to say, yesterday's meeting/tour was one of our best!!!! It was an exciting time to discover, reflect and say, "ah, ha" in the D.

I wanted to say thanks again for the Eastern Market tour. My wife and I had a great time! Linda was great and we really enjoyed everything about the day. We will definitely return and we plan to send our family and friends on the tour as well.

I just wanted to let you know what a delightful time Laura and I had on the new downtown Detroit tour <What's New in Jewish Detroit>. The tour was so well planned that we never had a chance to catch our breath seeing all the new things going on in our city, the new buildings and new facilities. I was so totally impressed with the Downtown Detroit Synagogue and all the activities they have to bring young people downtown. It was exciting seeing the new Chabad house and meeting the gracious, dynamic young rabbi. Their garden is truly impressive. Lunch at the cafeteria at WSU was delightful. I've taken my grandchildren down to enjoy it. Thank you for a delightful day.

Hi, Linda. We were all pleased with the tour and had a great day! Your tour was a balanced mix of sightseeing and information, which was just what the students needed. You did a good job of keeping us all together in multiple cars - I know that wasn't easy. I'll share this positive experience with the rest of our community. Regards,
