Group Travel

Created specifically with Group Travel in mind.

Although 2020 is not what any of us have imagined, we know your travelers still have a strong desire to interact and learn together. In this unique time of social distancing, we’ve been hosting educational seminars paired with care packaged filled with sweet treats for your participants. As a matter of fact, only 30 minutes into our inaugural workshop, the coordinator emailed us to request setting up another session! 

One of the highlights of scheduling a Box is the opportunity to pair it with a live time, interactive discussion and learning experience that is beautifully paired to go along with the items received in the care box. As the coordinator, you take the RSVP’s and give us a list of attendees with their home addresses. We’ll ship them directly a care package filled with delicious goodies. Some coordinators are choosing to schedule a location for everyone to pick up their boxes in person and then watch the presentation together. Others are having us ship the boxes directly to each attendee. We’re flexible as we continue to navigate this new world with you! 

For those traveling on the road, we are still offering in-person tours! Group travel or bank travel leaders may select from any of our public neighborhood walking or bus tour routes, or from one of our themed tours created especially for larger groups. These options involve minimal walking and are fully-customizable.

Simply in need of a step-on guide? If so, we’ve got you covered. Our tour guides are professionally trained, each with a passion for Milwaukee and experience in group travel.  Available on an hourly basis, our step-on guides will show off the key neighborhoods and sights of downtown Milwaukee to fit with your itinerary and needs.
