Beth was a great tour guide, informative and very attentive to the group. Food was excellent and the history supplied about the Third Ward interesting. Not too much walking or sitting...great fun.

We started out with some fabulous soup and pizza. The kabobs were disappointing at Tulip. Dessert was changed up at the last minute, substitute was good but the atmosphere not so much. Overall I would rate this a good time mostly because of the historical part of the tour. It certainly didn't hurt that the company and weather conditions were amazing!

We learned a great deal about an area that we never would have visited without going on the Third Ward Food Tour. What fun.

Good times in the 3rd Ward

Each local establishment provided my tribe with an excellent taste of various cuisines that were wonderful on the taste buds. Our Guide presented the history and back-ground story to keep us entertained and engaged. We have been on three Food Tours counting this one and we will do a Food Tour again.

Not that great

Had to wait for tardy guests even though add stated that tour would start on time. Food not impressive. One beer served in small glass. Beef slider cooked raw. Overheard employee at one establishment saying that guide didn't give them enough notice. Guide would walk on alone without any real concern about keeping the group together.

We come from the South and expected at least some Wisconsin style cuisine and not something that we could easily find at home.

Good news is that a refund was provided by owner.

A nice little taste of Milwaukee

My wife and I took our adult daughter and her boyfriend on the Historic Third Ward Food Tour. They live in Boise, Idaho and he was making his first trip to Wisconsin. We all enjoyed getting a flavor of the City of Milwaukee and some of the local cuisine. The tour included some interesting local history and delicious food. The Filet Mignon sliders at Evolution were very good. My wife and I will probably head back to this area when we come down for the State Fair in August. There were a few other riverside bars and restaurants that we'd like to check out.

A fun tour! Despite some rain, we all had a great time. Our guide was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. Didn't overdo the facts, just enough to learn some neat things along with tasting some really delicious food.

Great peek of the 3rd Ward

All stops were good except for Tulip. If they wanted or showcase their place (given that we were the only ones in there on a Friday night at 7 PM) They should probably give us their signature dish, not dry chicken kabobs and rice.

The tour was interesting but overall the food was very basic. $50 was a bit overpriced.
