good/ could be better

my tour was good, but there were a few things that could have been better . Our first stop was for soup in the public market, the last few people in the group had to take whatever was left , they had no choices. also there was no place to sit and eat the soup as it was cold/windy outside. we leaned against a deli counter that was under construction ! In the restaurant Tulip, we were not offered the lamb kabobs, the chicken kebobs were OK .In the pizza restaurant, beer or wine should have been offered, water just doesn't taste right with pizza ! lastly at the restaurant Coquette we had our mousse in the lobby ,not allowed in the restaurant for some reason. Coffee /tea definitely should have been included !

I guess I misread the original description as I thought it said food and drink samples were served at each stop but this is not the case. Only one small tiny 5 oz beer is served the entire evening otherwise its water and a few small things to eat. The soup was ok... It all went downhill from there. We mistakenly assumed we would stop at some nice places and try some neat things while learning about the third ward. not the case. pizza, soup, and other boring stuff with water to drink. the guide was not very enthusiastic either. I felt like this tour was very overpriced for what you get and the tour is dragged on longer than it needed to be considering the lack of quality things to eat and drink.

We took this tour as an activity to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. It was great! We all enjoyed it immensley I haven't stopped talking about it to family and friends since then. A suggestion perhaps would be to add interesting facts about Milwaukee to those that are not from here, such as, there is an observation floor on the US Bank building for those that want to go up there, well at least there use to be. Our tour gal did an excellent job of sharing history about the Historic Third Ward, we are much better informed about our town than we were before we started. The gal (sorry can't remember her name) was warm and very friendly, she did an excellent job. The highlight was playing table tennis at Spin, we will be sure to visit there again.

Started out well, but then fell short

First off, we had a great tour guide who was very enthusiastic and you could tell that he enjoyed his job. We also had a great group of tour members who were interested in learning more about the city as well. I had read some reviews of this tour before purchasing and they all said the food was great and there was so much of it that you didn't need to eat before or after; for the tour we just went on, I unfortunately do not agree with those statements. The first stop was definitely a good portion of soup, and the second stop had pizza, which was good as well. Then the portions got smaller and less flavorful from there. The small sandwiches at the next place were more appetizer sized with only one piece provided for each group member, the following restaurant provided chicken with absolutely no flavor with plain rice, and the last stop had chocolate mousse (which you can't really mess up, so that was alright). Also, I understand that you don't really want to rush through these stops, but our tour lasted 3 hours, which I thought was way too much time. You can only sit and stare at an empty plate for so long before you need to move on. I can't say that the overall experience was poor, but from all the reviews I read, I guess I just expected more for the price that I paid. I'm willing to try another tour, but I'm definitely going to pick a cheaper one, so I don't feel like I paid good money for food that I could've prepared for myself at home.
