InstaMKE Photo Walk

Walking Tour

InstaMKE Photo Walk

Whether you’re a local looking to show off this city to friends and family, or a tourist passing through and wanting photographic evidence to answer your friends’ question of “Why Milwaukee?,” the InstaMKE tour is a great way to explore the city through a new lens! Engaging historic commentary will be accompanied by pro photo tips to help you be confident that your photos are not just beautiful, but Instagram-worthy. Our tour guides are professional photographers ready to give tips on photography composition and also ready to treat you to a little sweet treat along the way. One of the many highlights of the tour is Wisconsin Avenue, which boasts a stunning then-and-now view of Downtown Milwaukee, and the largest contemporary urban art exhibition in the world known as SculptureMKE. This tour concludes at the Milwaukee lakefront, with the dramatic backdrop of the architecturally innovative Milwaukee Art Museum, its accompanying scenic gardens, and the I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-an-ocean view of Lake Michigan.

NOTE: We will utilize audio headsets on our walking tours that are sanitized after each tour. With a 100 yard range, they work fabulously at amplifying the tour guide and allowing guests to practice social distancing as they wish.
