Streetcar History Tour

As our hottest new tour, the Streetcar History Tour is a fun and alternative way to explore the city of Milwaukee! New to the city in 2018, the streetcar known locally as The Hop weaves through multiple neighborhoods that you will hear  in-depth from your tour guide. Part streetcar ride, part walking tour, this tour provides a close-up view of some of the best parts of Milwaukee. During our 90 minutes together, we will exit the streetcar twice so that we can embark on brief walking tours to explore Cathedral Square and the Historic Third Ward. And a feast for the eyes and ears wouldn’t be complete without a sweet treat for your taste buds. Hop on the Hop and join us for a Streetcar History Tour today!

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.
