An Evening Well Spent

Though I live within 50 miles of Milwaukee, I have very little knowledge of the Third Ward. The introduction to the community, the history, and the food was very enjoyable. Our guide was knowledgeable and adapted very well to the group. The food was plentiful and good. And the weather was perfect.

We enjoyed the tour - learned quite a bit of the local history and had some really great food! While each plate was small, by the time we finished, we had a great lunch, complete with dessert (some of the best Key Lime pie I've ever had). We had a very small group (just me, the friend I was with, and a gentleman from NYC), and that was great because it was easy to hear our guide and we all had a chance to get somewhat acquainted. We went to a couple of restaurants we might not have tried otherwise, and it was well worth the price. Our guide Marie, though fairly new on the job, was personable and knowledgeable - and fun!

I brought my aunt (76 yo) who had grown up in Milwaukee and now lives in Kansas City. She walks slowly, but the guide and the group were wonderful in walking slower and giving her a place to rest along the way. She felt so at home as memories came back. We were so full by the end, but stayed with the tour through dessert. Congratulations on a wonderful tour - and I'm coming back for other tours!

The food tour was great. Our tour guide, Marie, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of the 3rd ward. You get enough food throughout the tour as well. I will most likely try one of their other food tours offered in the near future. Thank you for the great experience!

Great history learned

The history of the area is great. Our tour guide was awesome, very into the area and loves her job. We were a bit disappointed that we only received a small glass of beer and the rest of drinks were water. Food was good and will go back to a few of the resaurants/bars we visited.

I had to eat dinner after the tour

Wondering how this costs $50 per person - I feel like we ate about $15 of food and I got the feeling that the tour guides are volunteers. Our tour guide, Kristin, did do an excellent job though and seemed very knowledgeable about the third ward.

Kristen is amazing!

Our food tour of the Third Ward was amazing, primarily due to our wonderful guide! She was so positive, cheerful, enthusiastic and beyond excellent. Not only did she teach us about the history of the city, but she helped everyone get to know each other and have fun! I did not expect that the food would take a back seat to the tour! If I had to offer any constructive criticism, it would be that the individual courses did not seem to go together to form a complete meal. But I would go on any tour with Kristen again even with food that doesn't mix :)

My husband and I were part of a large group. Some members were locals and the rest of us were out of state tourists. Interesting history of Milwaukee along each stop. The food was great. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic, friendly, and helpful. Our group of 17 (18 with tour guide) was rather large. I would recommend that the Food Tour think about making the groups smaller in size (no more than 12). My husband and I hope to participate in another food tour in the near future.
