Fun, interesting, unique activity!

We attended a food tour in Chicago and really enjoyed it so we thought we would do it again with our 2 colllege-aged sons and their girlfriends in Milwaukee. Despite an unseasonably cold and snowy evening we all had a great time. We had a 'perky' informative tour guide that kept our spirits high with crumby weather. We learned many interesting facts and history about the 3rd Ward while we stopped for quick bites to eat and drink. The food was just OK but the dessert (chocolate mousse) was outstanding. I would recommend this tour.

A way to enjoy a taste of the Third Ward.

Not only do you stop at five different establishments in the Third Ward and sample food, but you get a history lesson as well, of the area. Our tour guide also gave us tips on where to shop, find the best bloody marys, and to enjoy live entertainment. The tour is more than just a taste of the Third Ward, its an invitaion to explore the area.

Although I have lived in Milwaukee for almost 30 years, I still learned so much from this tour. My cousin and her husband from Chicago came to town and we decided to try the tour (their suggestion)! The food was wonderful, the tour guide was so much fun and very knowledgeable and the restaurant venues were very welcoming. I would recommend this to both locals and visitors. We have already made plans for our next Food Tour this summer!

Our guide Nicole was interesting and informative. I loved the history of the area. Our group of 13 was made up of groups of 2 or 3 individuals. We all played ping pong at Evolution and everyone mixed well. Our daughter thought this would be a fun way to celebrate her 32nd b'day. Her dad and I accompanied her and we all had a great time. Tour is great for multigenerational groups. Food was good. We have already recommended the tour to our friends.

Tour guide did a great job. We only received 5 ounces of beer at one location and water at every other location and the food was marginal. We had a good group that made it fun.

Informative but overpriced

This tour was interesting from a historical perspective. Our guide knew lots of interesting tidbits and gave a good background on the Third Ward and how it became what it is today. However, it was pretty lacking in regards to information about the food. Other food tours I've been on contains talks about the dishes and the restaurant. While the food was good, portions were small and the focus of the tour was elsewhere. I would value this tour at about $35-40/person, not the $55 I actually paid for it.

My daughter and I were the only ones who had signed up for this tour on a recent very cold and extremely windy Saturday. Our guide, Marie, was charming and knowledgable. We learned a great deal about the history of the Third Ward as well as its current revitalization. Stops for food were frequent and portions were generous. Everything was delicious and we'll return to those establishments when we are in the area again. Kudos to Marie for giving us such a great tour in miserable weather. This tour is well worth the time and money.

Accommodating, Creative and Reasonably Priced

The Historic Third Ward Food Tour was absolutely worth it. The restaurant selections were excellent and the food was more than a value for the money we paid. The guide was enthusiastic and really wanted to be there. I have celiac and my tour guide made sure to check at every restaurant for options I could eat, for which I was very grateful. The owner is also extremely friendly and responds quickly to questions. I plan to go on more tours from this company.
