Walking and Bus Food Tours

Milwaukee’s Premier, Original & Award-Winning Tours

Theresa's Letter

This year we are offering a limited selection of our public tours. These dates are all listed on our calendar, which you can view by scrolling to the bottom of this page.  

We continue offering private food tours as well!  We require 8 or more paid guests for a private walking tour; 15 or more paid guests for a private bus tours. You pick the date and time, and we make it happen!

If you have fewer than 8 guests, we are happy to work with you to create a custom itinerary and pricing for your party including offering a classic sightseeing tour of Milwaukee via a chauffeured vehicle. Learn more about pricing for groups of all sizes HERE. Please reach out to us at sales@milwaukeefoodtours.com or by calling 414-255-0534 x 3 to begin planning something delicious!

We take great pride in setting the standard for safety on our tours and making sure that you, our guests, can truly enjoy the experience and have fun at the same time. We follow government and CDC mandates throughout the tour, maintain social distancing by keeping parties on public tours separated by 6 feet, serve individual plates (not family style meals) and ensure our restaurant partners take great care in cleaning their facility before our visit. 

Lastly, the best-laid plans today might not work in the future. If you need to cancel your reservation for any reason, as long as you cancel 72 hours prior, we will refund your tickets with no penalty to you. You will also have the option during the check-out process to add Tour Ticket Insurance for $2 a ticket which will allow you to cancel for any reason up until the start of the tour to qualify for a full refund. In the event that we must cancel a tour due to weather or COVID-19, rest assured that you will receive a full refund as well. Gift cards also do not expire, so you can always return to exploring with us in 2022 and beyond

If you are not quite ready to explore the city, we pivoted to offering gift boxes that are allowing us to continue our mission of supporting multiple small businesses in the community and sharing their stories. They are a delicious way to enjoy having the best of Milwaukee delivered straight to your doorstep, or the doorstep of someone you love or appreciate.

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