Audio-D's mission is to help you explore the history, art, and architecture of our favorite city, Detroit, Michigan. As the D morphs into a vibrant 21st Century version of its former self, the old stories become that much more important. We think understanding a bit about the heritage of this great town and its inhabitants is one spark that can help keep the pistons churning toward new goals. Sharing stories with fellow Motowners and the rest of the world is our little contribution.

Doing it for the love of the D!  Our mobile audio guides are free for personal use and there are no ads within the tours. Just note that the guides are copyrighted and no permission is granted for commercial use or incorporation in any other works.
