What have we changed since COVID-19?

We’ve been thinking A LOT about how to return to our roots -TOURS!  In order to do so, it is our duty to determine a way forward that is not only safe and responsible, but makes sure that you, our guests, can truly enjoy the experience and have fun at the same time.

We’ve already kicked off our new normal by offering walking tours such as Around the Ward in 90 Minutes, InstaMKE Photowalk, and the Streetcar History Tour. These are more focused on sightseeing, but do include a delicious sweet treat along the way. 

We’ve recently begun offering our food tours again, and these dates are all listed on our calendar, which you can view by scrolling to the bottom of this page.  

Our public tours will have no more than 12 guests on them, and we require tour guides to wear masks. We are also utilizing audio headsets on our walking tours that are sanitized after each tour. With a 100 yard range, they work fabulously at amplifying the tour guide and allowing guests to practice social distancing as they wish.

We are offering private food tours again!  We’ve reduced our minimum head counts for private tours. We now require 4 or more paid guests for a private walking tour; 6 or more paid guests for a private bus tours. We are working with groups on an individual basis to create a custom itinerary and pricing. Please reach out to us at events@milwaukeefoodtours.com or by calling 262-853-5239 to begin planning something delicious!

Lastly, we’re offering a classic sightseeing tour of Milwaukee via a chauffeured vehicle for private groups of 2 or more guests. Your chauffeur will handle the hassles of parking and transportation while your tour guide will show you Milwaukee’s key neighborhoods and you can stop for selfies and snacks along the way. Learn more about pricing for groups of all sizes HERE.

If you are not quite ready to explore the city, we pivoted to offering care packages and will continue offering this gift boxes. These are a delicious way to enjoy having the best of Milwaukee delivered straight to your doorstep! Details of those care packages are below. 

We hope to see you on a tour again very soon!
