Walking and Bus Food Tours

Milwaukee’s Premier, Original & Award-Winning Tours

This Summer at Milwaukee Food Tours

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 of wearing face coverings 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. We are also utilizing audio headsets on our walking tours. With a 100 yard range, we’ve found them to work fabulously at amplifying the tour guide and allowing guests to practice social distancing as they wish.

This year we are offering a limited selection of public tours, primarily focused on our outdoor walking tours and options that lend themselves to greater social distancing. These dates are all listed on our calendar, which you can view by scrolling to the bottom of this page.  

We are offering private food tours again too!  We now require 8 or more paid guests for a private walking tour; 15 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 sales@milwaukeefoodtours.com or by calling 414-255-0534 x 3 to begin planning something delicious!

We’re also 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.

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 12 hours prior, we will refund your tickets with no penalty to you. 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 2021 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!

Christmas Gift Boxes - Back by Popular Demand!

Our top boxes SOLD OUT in 48 hours last year, and people have been asking when they can reserve theirs for 2021. Pre-orders are NOW OPEN!  

Why rush Christmas? We had so much fun last year designing our Christmas collection. It truly saved our company and gave us so much joy to hear and see the connections each of you made with loved ones as a result of the boxes. We wanted to go really big in 2021, but were unable to access loans to purchase all of the inventory in the boxes. Additionally, many of the food producers we are working with are feeling the pinch of supply chain challenges and need to order their ingredients now. We will only have a limited quantity again this year. Not to sound dramatic… but if you really want to purchase a Christmas box this year… this is your chance to do so. Purchase today to reserve your box, and you or your recipients receive it after November 10th.

Looking for a corporate gift? We’d love to work with you to reserve Advent Calendars, our 12 Days Countdown Boxes, or create a custom box to meet the goals and budget of your team. Boxes are available featuring small businesses in not only Wisconsin, but Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois as well. Please reach out to us directly for corporate orders at 262-853-5239.
