Detroit, MI, May 19, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Enjoy the 61st Annual Ford Detroit Fireworks this year with a group motorcoach trip on June 24 offered by Step On Bus Tours to see the spectacular pyrotechnics display on the Detroit/Windsor waterfront. The fireworks will be viewed from a Canadian certified ferry vessel that carries 197 passengers.
Eight Reasons to take the bus and boat tour for the fireworks:
1. Avoid driving on congested roads. Yes, there will be crowds. The bus can easily manage them safely as well as road, ramp and expressway closures.
2. Hassle free US and Canadian Customs crossing. Travelers will have to disembark the bus and check in with customs – all under a half-an-hour.
3. No searching frustration for a place to park or pay high parking prices.
4. Less walking – only from boat to bus. It’s ideal for people who have mobility issues.
5. No need to carry a lawn chair. The boat has plenty of seats and will be reserved for Step On Bus Tours.
6. Great views of the fireworks from the boat. The ferry has great seats, so there is no elbowing for a place.
7. Hors d'oeuvres on the vessel include, imported and domestic cheeses, vegetable crudité with dip, trio dip platter, assorted sushi, mini heirloom tomato tarts, vegetable spring roll, with chili dipping sauce, vegetable samosas with cucumber raita, mini beef kafta with garlic dipping sauce, chicken satays with peanut sauce.
8. Clean restrooms are always available. There’s no searching, no line and no charge.
About 10,000 fireworks will be ignited from a barge on the Detroit River between the GM Ren Cen and Caesar’s Casino Windsor. Both the River Walks on each side of the border will be closed for the safety of all.
"This trip was developed for people of all ages who want a hassle free way of seeing the fireworks," said Rose Szwed, President and Duchess of Touring, Step On Bus Tours. "Travelers can take the first portion of the day to take care of concerns and plan to have a lot of fun starting with the departure. There’s entertainment on the bus. And games with great prizes. Of course, the striking performance is the centerpiece of the event."
Cost is $110 per person and includes roundtrip motorcoach, box lunch, border crossing fees, tickets for the boat, hors d’oeuvre and snacks. Fee is non-refundable.
Travelers will be picked up at one of the following locations:
1. Eddie Edgar Ice Arena, I-96 & Farmington Rd. - 5:30 pm
2. Walmart at M-59 and Mound, Sterling Heights - 4:30 pm
3. Lowes, 12 Mile & John R, Madison Heights - 5:00 pm

Cash and checks are accepted. There’s a slight up-charge for using credit cards because Step On Bus Tours does not build in credit card costs per trip.
