Our guide, Andrea, was exceptionally knowledgable and brought the history of the city to life. The tour took us to many cool places that we probably wouldn't have discovered otherwise. For the food, the Thai restaurant was a highlight, with exceptional taste and flavour. The ruined mill that transformed into a museum was a breathtakingly beautiful cultural stop. TIPS: For... More

This was probably the highlight of our trip to Minneapolis. Our guide, Rachel, was so enthusiastic and personable, and filled us in on much of the history of the city and the northeast area. All of the food was great and it was a perfect mix of cuisine, nothing too "heavy" and all just right! Highly recommended!

I took the food tour with five stops. I enjoyed the guide immensely, and her knowledge of local history was fantastic. I did wish we had walked through the Farmer's Market, since that was posted as part of the tour and perhaps hit up something more original than the Spaghetti Factory, beautiful though it was. I will still definitely try... More

Three friends and I enjoyed the Riverwalk Tour. We walked, learned, ate and drank! The food was diverse...pasta, gelato, thai food, pork sliders and of course, as this is Minnesota..cheese curds!. 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
