We had a really fun tour! In addition to sampling the yummy food, we learned a lot about the Third Ward - even though we are all native to Milwaukee! Our tour guide was very nice, even though it was only his 2nd tour. I would recommend it - great fun!

A neat way to spend an afternoon

The leader was Awesome. Her knowledge of the Third Ward and the surrounding area was very entertaining. The only change I'd make is to have more than just cheese pizza. If that's not possible, choose a different restaurant.
Milwaukee Food Tours responded:
Your feedback is appreciated and we agree that Sandy is awesome. Regarding the pizza, this is something that we can look into. We love sharing the history of that pizza, which is one reason we chose it, but we will consider some other topping options. If you like the afternoon atmosphere we'd suggest our Old Third World Street tour. The neighborhood's theme is more German in influence, so no pizza on this one. Cheese, sausage and beer, oh my! We hope to see you there.

Guide was great!. Food was just OK, the price was not equal to the amount or quality of food.
Milwaukee Food Tours responded:
We are glad you enjoyed the guide and hope you liked the history along the way! Thank you for your feedback regarding the food. We are always discussing ways to improve each route and we don't hesitate to adjust food or stops. This will be brought up in the next meeting to see what we could do differently. We would love to see you again!

My Husband and I are locals and our friends are from Virginia. They loved the tour and KIM our tour guide.. She was wonderful. We truly enjoyed being a tourist in our own town. We are anxious to try the other tours.
Milwaukee Food Tours responded:
Thanks for coming and bringing your guests. All of our guides bring a unique experience to the tours and we hope you try another route. If you liked the Historic Third Ward, try our Pizza Bus tour. It goes all around the city and ends with gelato. Just be sure to bring your appetite!

Fun experience, something different to do. Very small portions of food and not enough time to order drinks, but still very fun.
Milwaukee Food Tours responded:
Glad you had fun and thanks for your feedback. We try to coordinate the tours with the restaurant staff to have time for drinks but it can be a challenge at times. One solution we suggest is trying our Historic Bar tour. The drinks are all pre-poured and lined up like a beer army when you arrive at each stop. We hope you give it a try. Cheers!

Great food with an energetic guide

All of the food was fantastic and the tour ended at one of my favorite restaurants. The tour took a little more than 2.5 hours but there wasn't a dull moment.
Milwaukee Food Tours responded:
Thanks for coming and for your review. We agree, there is never a dull moment with Marie. All of our guides bring a bit of entertainment along with the food and history. If you want a really interesting experience, try our Historic Bar tour. The guide plus some colorful bar staff will make you want to call a barstool your home!

Recommended even if you are a local

I was looking for something different to do with my friends. The dinner and movie or shopping gets old. This was a fun way to get dinner at different places and learn about the history of the city. I had been to a few of the restaurants that were on the tour but had never eaten the dishes that were served during this tour. The portion sizes were pretty substantial and we were full at the end of the tour. Our guide - Robert - was very knowledgeable about the third ward and it was fascinating to learn about it. Overall, I would recommend it for a date night or a fun night out with your friends.

I did the 3rd ward food tour with my mom as a gift to her for Mothers Day and it was a personal tour for two! We were the only ones! Our tour guide Lee was fantastic and gave us some really interesting history of the city that neither one of us knew about. The stops were great, the food was delicious and the company was wonderful. We are already debating where and when our next tour should be. Thanks for a great evening out on the town! And keep Lee around, he's so charismatic! :)
