Summer 2014 Walking ToursWalking Tour

Our walking tours are the talk of the town, and out-of-towners!

“We took the Milwaukee architecture tour [Downtown Thru the Eras] today and greatly enjoyed it. The guide was wonderful — really knew her stuff and was personable and fun.  We learned a lot and met some interesting people too. Thanks for offering this — we’d love to do another tour the next time we are in Milwaukee.”
- Barb and Mark from Groton, Connecticut
