Our guide, Karen, was great! Provided an interesting history of the city throughout our tour. The food was delicious and each restaurant was so unique from the others. Would definitely do this tour again and my girlfriends and I plan on doing others...so much fun!

Such a wonderful experience... I have lived here my whole life, but knew SO little. I learned a ton and had a wonderful meal. Maria, our guide, was amazing. Kind, friendly, yet let us have enough alone time. Perfect.

I brought my aunt and uncle, and their three grown children from the Philippines and we all enjoyed learning about Milwaukee. It was an easy walking tour and we had an enthusiastic guide who gave us lots of interesting bits of Milwaukee information. I'd definitely go on another tour!

Good way to spend a few hours

My friend & I meet in Milwaukee as a half way point between our homes. We wanted to do something different so we signed up for the Historic Third Ward Food Tour. The tour guide Marie was fabulous - we learned quite a lot about the third ward. I am not a foodie and would probably be considered a very picky eater but I thought the food was pretty good. The servings were well sized and the variety was good. The locations we went to definitely added to the fun. All in all it was a nice way to spend a few hours with my friend & learning more about Milwaukee.

The tour guide was great, as he is a native of Milwaukee and is very passionate about his city. He is well-informed re the Third Ward and is very friendly to chat with. The tour covers most of the Third Ward, but some of the stops are necessarily reflective of Milwaukee or Wisconsin food culture.

Meh, better local eating places and guides.

Some interesting facts and it was fun to see the inside of Tulips and Smoke Stack and Evolution, but I expect much more quality and flavor from the Third Ward.

Discover your own city---and its fabulous food!

We enjoyed our tour guide - he was knowledgeable and enjoyable. I noticed that he knew the answers to all of our questions as well as the material he planned. The food was fun, different and fabulous. The restaurants were really welcoming and even though we dine out fairly often, we went to some new places and would return there. The other people on the group were fun too. All in all a very pleasant and delicious evening. P.S. You're not asking but I'd give our guide a "10"!!

Jean made the evening fantastic!

We had done a food tour in Charleston, SC, so when our girls weekend came to MKE, we decided to look into a food tour here. SO glad we did! Jean was an amazing tour guide...she made it fun and we learned some history of the historic 3rd ward. And the food was delicious! Being the local in my group, I was able to sample foods from restaurants I'd never heard of and now can take friends and family there to enjoy as well.

I can't wait to try more tours!

On a less-positive note, when I called Zerve to get the address of where to meet for the tour, the young man that answered the phone sounded confused and ended up giving us the wrong address! (The one he gave us didn't exist!) We called again and got a very helpful young lady, so we made it!
