2021 - Our Sixth Season

In 2016, we began the Guided Walking History Tour of Traverse City, a weekly guided tour through the historic neighborhoods of Traverse City with just one tour per week.  Through the years we have continuously grown, increasing the number of tours and guide services that we provide each season.

Last summer we conducted tours wearing masks and practicing social distancing, so with that behind us, we are  certainly looking forward to a busy season this year.

Our Guides

Steve Morse is a (mostly) retired advertising agent.  He began conducting tours on the Traverse City History Center's "Magical History Tour" bus in 2014.  When that program ended, he missed telling the stories of Traverse City's early days so he created the Guided Walking History Tour of Traverse City to fill that desire.  He is also a "Step-On" regional guide for many of the tour buses  that visit our area every summer.

Debbie Douglas is the Special Events Coordinator at the City Opera House.  This is her third season with us.

The Guided Walking History Tour is a free walking tour not affiliated with any non-profit, for profit, or municipal organization.
