“A tasty way to see the Third Ward!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

I highly recommend the Third Ward tour! We visited the Milwaukee Public Market, Rustico Pizzeria, SPiN Milwaukee, Tulip and Cuvee Lounge. Each location had a vegetarian option for me, which I really appreciated. Not only did we get to sample great food, but we learned a lot about the Third Ward and Milwaukee in general. We've lived in Milwaukee 4 years and I think this tour is ideal for both natives and visitors.

“Great food and fun”

I took the Milwaukee Bakery Tour today. The choices of bakeries was excellent. I also learned some interesting factoids about Milwaukee. I want to go on their pizza tour now! Highly recommend!

“Great way to eat your way around Milwaukee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

We took the Christmas Around Milwaukee Bakery Bus Tour. It was great fun. We visited 9 different bakeries from Italian to French and more. Had great treats at each one. This was not just limited to tasting great Christmas cookies. We also had a fabulous hot ham sandwich, pizza, cupcakes, coffee and gourmet hot chocolate. Everyone walked away with shopping bags stuffed with treasures.
It was very well organized and our guide, Theresa, provided us with great insight and trivia along the way. Well worth it. We will make this an annual event and we are planning our next food tour soon.

“A twist on "going out to dinner"!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

Instead of picking one restaurant for a dinner to celebrate our friend's birthday, we enjoyed the variety of 5 different places in one evening. We chose Milwaukee Food Tours' Historic Third Ward walking tour as a way to sample a variety of cuisines and get a taste of Milwaukee history along the way. We are all Milwaukee natives and know much of the city's rich history, yet we learned a few new things along the way. And don't let the thought of sampling food make you think it you won't get enough to eat. The food at the various restaurants was served family style and we did not go home hungry. The food tour is an excellent way to savor the city as long as you are not a picky eater and are able bodied enough to enjoy a neighborhood walk.

“Not as good as the Chicago tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

Two friends and I booked the Third Ward Tour based on a very good experience with a Chicago and Greenwich Village (NY) tour. Compared to those, this was a disappointment. The group was entirely too large (19). We were told a maximum of 16 when we booked. One restaurant was not ready for us. It is not a good start to stand in a very crowded restaurant with 19 other people waiting for tables. That should not happen on a professional tour. The food was good and the tour guide was okay. We could not go to the last place since it was booked for a wedding. Maybe this tour is better if not on a Saturday night. Maybe the history and food of Chicago and Greenwich Village are just more interesting. The price was the same as the Chicago tour....and the food not as plentiful or interesting. If you have taken other tours, I think you will be disappointed in this one.
