Robert, our tour guide, was from the Third Ward, and was very knowledgeable about the area, its history and the local businesses. He was charming and gracious, patient with questions and lead the tour a nice pace. All the food we tasted was wonderful, and ample enough. By the end of the tour you are quite full! Plenty of food, water and one beer sample is included. You can purchase additional drinks at each venue.

We had been dining at Casablanca for years on Brady Street and never even knew about the eastern end! Brian, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable about both the history of the area as well as the food. There was a good variation of samples across the 6 places we visited. So, for those of you who think you know your city...you may be like us and just scratched the surface. Take the tour!!

Four of us ventured out on a beautiful day for our first food tour. What fun! It was informative historically and quite tasty. We had enough to eat for lunch, dessert and beverage and enjoyed the camaraderie of the others. The hometown folks are amazingly welcoming Try it if you visit. Kudos to our tour guide Bryan.

We took the "RiverWalk & Old World 3rd St. Tour in Westown". This is a GREAT tour for anyone who enjoys food and history. Maria was very informative. The food was wonderful as well has the history of the area. Great way to spent 2-3 hours!

Went on my first food tour — pizza — on 8/10 and enjoyed every minute/bite. Visited four great, very different pizza places — Wauwatosa, eastside and downtown — and ended up at amazing (Maybe World's Best?) gelato shop. Met some nice people — interesting combination of visitors and residents of Milwaukee area. Steve was informative, fun guide. Learned about pizza and Milwaukee area history. GREAT way to see Milwaukee — whether you have lived here all your life or just visiting. Plan to sign up for several other tours. This will be the one "sure thing" I do with any visiting friends/family in the future!
