Full description

Discover Milwaukee on a small-group sightseeing tour. Walk first through the downtown, pass by the City Hall building, discover Pabst Theatre, and stroll along the river. Then, board the bus and make stops at the Black Cat Alley, the North Pont Lighthouse, and much more.

Begin first on foot in the historic downtown of Milwaukee. View the stately City Hall building, completed in 1895, and the landmark Pabst Theatre, before reaching the river. Walk along the river and catch a glimpse of a bronze casting of a 70’s TV hero.

Starting the driving portion of the tour, learn about Milwaukee’s interesting history from Native Americans to the French fur traders who founded the modern city.

As you drive, pass by the Sculpture Milwaukee, an outdoor exhibition that includes art from all around the world. Heading north towards the first stop, pass Milwaukee's Museum Mile on the trendy East Side.

Then, discover a unique neighborhood filled with bars, restaurants, and local shops. The first stop is at the Black Cat Alley, Milwaukee’s premier street art gallery.

Back in the coach, the bus enters the exclusive Water Tower District. Glimpse the homes of the beer barons and industrialists, including a house designed by Wisconsin’s own Frank Llyod Wright.

The next stop comes at the North Point Lighthouse in Milwaukee’s expansive Lake Park. Take in the sweeping views of Lake Michigan and drive along the lakeshore towards the Milwaukee Art Museum. As one of America’s largest museums, it was featured in multiple Hollywood hits, including Bridesmaids. Moving along, the bus passes the Henry Maier Festival Grounds and the revitalized Third Ward. This former industrial district has come to life with restaurants, and theaters, and is home to the Milwaukee Public Market.

Make a quick stop here to go to the restroom, or have a snack and a drink. Heading back downtown, the tour passes the iconic Pabst Brewing Company and Fiserv Forum Arena, home of the World Champion Milwaukee Bucks. Full of history, photos, and laughs, the tour makes its way back to City Hall to conclude and sets you up to explore Milwaukee on your own.

Really great tour - awesome way to hit all the highlights and learn about the city! Very informative. Would definitely recommend. It was just my husband and I, but I feel like our kids would have enjoyed it, too.

Our tour guide was absolutely outstanding -very knowledgeable and very funny - this is a tour you do not want to miss - if you are in Milwaukee you must take this tour - the tour is about 2 hours - with several get off stops - not much walking involved - very slow paced
