(Wailist only)

Enjoy Milwaukee like you never have before! Join us on our delicious bus tour of Milwaukee, combining food, culture and history. This progressive tour explores neighborhoods originally settled by Italian, Irish, Polish and German immigrants.

Our professional guide will take us to Old World 3rd Street with an overview of Milwaukee’s German history, which includes a stop to enjoy sausage, cheese and beer/root beer. The bus will head to the Historic Third Ward for an overview of Milwaukee’s Irish History at the Public Market. Milwaukee’s last remaining Polish restaurant, Polonez, is where you will enjoy a family-style lunch. A visit to Brady Street, Milwaukee’s Italian enclave includes a stop at a bakery for cannoli. Last, but not least, we conclude with a custard treat at the famous Mader’s German Restaurant!

There will be some time for shopping in the ethnic neighborhoods and the tour includes views of Milwaukee’s lakefront, Milwaukee Art Museum and North Shore Lighthouse.

NOTE: The tour involves minimal walking, but you must be able to get on and off the bus multiple times during the day.
