Join us on a delicious and educational walking food tour of Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward as we discover true ethnic treasures in this lively neighborhood! This tour samples a wide range of cuisines, all of which are tied together nicely with a 5-ounce sample of genuine Wisconsin-brewed beer, just in case you forgot you were still in Milwaukee! 

On the tour, you will not only savor the food tastings, you’ll also enjoy a taste of life in this culturally rich and entertaining district. The Third Ward is home to numerous art galleries and specialty stores. Your local guide will point out hidden entertainment spots and restaurants along the way.

Of Special Note: The Historic Third Ward provides plenty of opportunities for exploration of unique boutiques and galleries. This tour includes a stroll through the bustling Milwaukee Public Market and the neighborhood housing the Broadway Theatre Center and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD). We recommend taking our guided Milwaukee food tasting and culture tour at the beginning of your stay in town. That way, you’ll be able to return to your newly-discovered Milwaukee restaurants, venues and hotspots during the rest of your visit!


Tour Length: Approximately one mile, with plenty of walking breaks and opportunities to sit down along the way. We spend approximately 15 - 20 minutes at each location. 

Time Commitment: Between 2 - 2.5 hours, depending on the pace of the group

Fun Facts: Did you know that only one firehouse ever burned down in Wisconsin and it was housed in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward? Did you know that many movies were filmed in the Historic Third Ward, including The Blues Brothers and Dillinger? On this tour route, you’ll visit these sites and view the building known as Milwaukee’s "Polish Moon."

All tastings are included in the price. Portions are often served family-style. Samples are substantial - for the vast number of attendees, you will not need to plan for a meal after the tour!

Allergy Disclaimer - We can accommodate many special requests due to allergies to nuts, seafood, MSG, wheat, etc. We also are happy to accommodate vegetarian requests. In all cases, we do require advance notice to make such arrangements.
