We also stopped at a bar for samples of beer. Lisa the tour guide made it feel like an outing with friends, not a stuffy or touristy tour. We... More

My friends and I enjoyed this tour as a girls trip to the Twin Cities. What fun! The tour guide Andrea was so knowledgeable, fun, and we discovered a lot about the Twin Cities food scene. All the restaurants were in historical buildings and there was plenty of good food. It was a nice paced walk and was great walking... More

It was fun to sample food from 5 different restaurants/shops. I loved the pizza from Crave, I wish a wine sample would have been included though. Our tour guide was helpful and very knowledgeable on the history of downtown buildings/skyway system.

A generally good tour but far from exceptional. Tour guide was rude and interrupted presenters often with information that did not add to the experience. It was in fact distracting. All the stops did not provide what was promised by guide. Emphasis was on shopping and there was, with the exception of the first stop, no place to just sit... More

We were looking for a fun "indoor" activity for a Minnesota January weekend. We chose the Skyway Food Tour. Kevin our tour guide was informative and attentive. We made five stops on the tour and each restaurant was prepared for our arrival. The stops where additional purchase options were available, he was sure to let us know ahead of time... More

My husband and I went on the skyway tour. The food was great and we had fun visiting with the other couples the tour. Our tour guide, Kevin, was adorable and very knowledgable. We learned a lot about the restaurants we visited and the candy store which had amazing chocolates and popcorn. We also learned some interesting things about downtown... More

Saw places and neighborhoods in MSP that I never would have but will now definitely go back to. Easy, safe, fun, educational. I ate too much at "Holy Land" and ended up taking a nap that afternoon.

A girlfriend and I went on the Downtown Minneapolis Skyway Tour in December and it was a great time. Growing up an hour from the cities makes me familiar with the area but I've never spent much time in Minneapolis. I loved visiting a variety restaurants, all of which were on my list of places I've wanted to go to.... More

We got to experience five different restaurants food including Slavic and Indian. I don't go to those ethnic places so it was good to get a taste of what it was like. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area and gave great trivia about the sites. It was a beautiful day in the 70's and just a wonderful... More
