Fantastic food & sites
Sat, Feb 21  11:30 AM FunToExplore Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The tour: food and sites were fantastic. We did not linger at each location otherwise we would run out of time. It did not seem like a lot of walking due to all the stops. The historical information was interesting & the stops were real gems, something you would not find by yourself. Marie, our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Marie recommended some places (shopping & eating) to go after the tour.

I would go back and see another tour, and seek out some of the restaurants from the food tour on my own. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Our tour guide Rebecca was fun and very knowledgeable about the history of the Third Ward. The food was tastey and it was fun learning about the history of the area. I definitely would take another tour with this company!

It was a unique way to try different foods and learn a little history, meet some different people and get outdoors as well as indoors. It was a big hit for our second date. We had a very good time as we also got to chat with each other and the group while walking about.

Good Not Great Experience

My friend and I decided to do a Food Tour in Milwaukee because we have done about 5 of them in other cities. With both of us being from Milwaukee originally, we did not expect to learn anything new about the city we know and love, but our Tour Guide, Jean, was amazing!! She did a great job of presenting information about Milwaukee and the restaurants we visited in a professional, but clever manor that kept us very interested! We would recommend this tour because of her! Great job. What made the tour part only okay is the amount of food and drink we got on the 3rd Ward Tour. Like I said, my friend and I have done a few different food tours in Seattle and Minnesota and at each stop they typically provided a small 4-5oz. glass of beer or wine to accompany the food. I thought that since this particular Milwaukee tour was $50 per person, we would have at least gotten more to drink than just a small 4oz glass of beer at one of the establishments. For the amount of money spent, we both did not feel as though we had enough which is the rating of "good" but not "great." I would recommend this tour to a person who has never done a food tour because you will not be disappointed because you will have nothing to compare it to, but for a seasoned food tourer, you may not like it as much!!

History vs. Food - drawing a perfect line!
Sat, Jan 3  11:30 AM Nowbrown2 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I love food and my husband loves history, so it was magical that a tour was so incredible it was the perfect union for our eleventh wedding anniversary. The food/restaurant selections were delicious - it would be incredibly hard to pick a favorite. I am a vegetarian and was accommodated in such away that I never "missed out" by not eating what the group ate (which only happened at one stop on the tour). We did not eat before the tour and had to cancel our dinner plans because we were so full! Karen, our guide,was very entertaining and knowledgable and answered thoroughly every question the group asked. Her passion for Milwaukee was contagious and we can't wait to take our next tour!

Marie was not only an outstanding guide, she was also a historian. Not only did we get great food, we also got historical information on the Third Ward.

A delightful way to introduce guests to MIlwaukee's history and flavors. Relaxed presentation with interaction and personal touches of a storyteller.
