Do you love cars and baseball? Want to work doing a fun job this summer? Antique Touring Company is hiring people to operate our new tour, the Riverfront Loop, during baseball season 2023!

Antique Touring Company is a local small business providing tours of historic Detroit in antique Detroit-made automobiles. We offer private curated tours covering the areas of Belle Isle, Corktown and Milwaukee Junction-Highland Park. 


This year we are doing something a little different.  The Riverfront Loop is a hop-on-hop-off tour of the Detroit Riverfront that will operate before or after Tiger's games this season in our 1929 Ford Model A Woody.  We are hiring two part-time positions for drivers of the Riverfront Loop.


Pay is between $17 and $23 an hour plus 10% sales commission if you book people on our other tours.

  • Taking photographs of guests on tour and uploading the photos to instagram at the end of each tour;
