We really enjoyed our tour with Hailey. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. This was a good way to see parts of the city we wouldn't have explored and to learn some facts about Minneapolis. The food tasting was a nice bonus. It's a lot of food so come hungry and it's also a lot of walking so wear comfortable... More

My wife and I had limited time in Minneapolis, and we wanted to do a food tour but could not attend any of the public tours. I contacted Rebecca, the owner, and she was able to work out a private Riverwalk tour at a time that worked for my wife and I! We met McKinzie and quickly saw how personable... More

We had a wonderful time on the Minneapolis Riverwalk Food Tour with our guide, Hailey. It was informative and fun. The food samples were tasty and generous, so I recommend that you go hungry. This was a great way to spend a few hours while visiting Minneapolis for the weekend.

We had fun as a group. Our rep from ToTC, Nicole, was great! However, the tasting tour itself, as well as the Pedal Pub, were rather disappointing. Instead of getting tacos and chips & salsa at our first stop we got what seemed to be day-old churros that were like eating stale bread. Going back later resulted in no food... More

Thank you for the feedback! Sorry to hear we did not reach you full expectations on this tour. We apologize for Marissa's, they were confused on which tour was coming and prepared their staff for a different tour that is usually served churros. This is something that rarely happens, and we apologize for the mishap. We tried to make it... More

Lisa was a fabulous guide for our tour of the Riverwalk in Minneapolis! She added flavor (LOL!) as she sprinkled facts, stories, and interesting tidbits as we walked from Gold Medal Park to St. Anthony on Main. From Thai food to Italian food and conventional Minnesota cheese curds and beer, we had a wonderful time discovering our own backyard! Having... More

Andrea did a terrific job and was very enthusiastic and engaging as she told us about art, history, architecture and food in Minneapolis. I would love to take some of the other tours offered by Taste Twin Cities Food Tours. They all sound excellent. I highly recommend these tours to both Twin Cities residents and those from out of town.

This was an enjoyable tour. We did the Eat and Sip tour, which didn't have very much walking to it at all. Andrea was very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy her job very much.

Looking for a fun and entertaining way to spend the afternoon this is it. We toured the river front and mills as well as local food joints. There was a little walking but lots of breaks to make it enjoyable. We learned so much about the mill area that we had no idea about. Our tour was very friendly and... More
