Streetcar History Tour

Join us to explore Milwaukee like you've never seen it before! You will ride The Hop, Milwaukee’s streetcar, together with your tour guide to hear historical commentary about each of the neighborhoods that we travel through. During our 90 minutes together, we will exit the streetcar twice so that we can embark on brief walking tours to explore the Cathedral Square and Historic Third Ward neighborhoods. Of course, how would we not stop in the Historic Third Ward for a complimentary treat perfect for your sweet tooth?

Included in the per person price, attendees will experience:

  • A fully narrated tour of downtown Milwaukee while traveling on The Hop, Milwaukee’s streetcar.

  • A sweet ending with a small dessert from one of our favorite spots found on The Hop streetcar route.

  • Narrated and guided tour fun
