I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the tour!
We do offer to see the Fonz Statue on every tour but I believe in this case you opted to board the vehicle early due to the cold weather.
We spend roughly 1/2 hour at the brewery compared to a full 1 hour for the "whole" tour. With so many great things to see in Milwaukee we think this is enough time to get a taste of Lakefront Brewery.
In regards to parking some people prefer proximity to cost. While you may find cheaper parking structures around City Hall we recommend the closest and most convenient lot to our starting location.
Thank you so much for coming on our tour, we really appreciate it!
Tour guide, Mike, was excellent. Enjoyed the tour and learned about Milwaukee. Kept on the move and kept it interesting.
FYI - the garage across the street, underground, is $16 for parking. May be able to find less expensive parking. For 2019 the trolley is free and picks up every 15-20 minutes. May want to park further away for less and experience riding the trolly to meet for the tour. The trolley stops one block from City Hall where the tour meets to begin.
I didn't give it an excellent due to the fact that couple things were not open since our tour was on Sunday and we not made aware of this ahead of time. I didn't expect City Hall to be open but was looking forward to touring the Clock Creamery to watch them make cheese,sample and purchase but it's closed on Sundays. Our driver/guide did bring and hand out cheese curds to sample which was thoughtful.
The tour was mostly enjoyable. Only 10 minutes was allowed at the art museum while over an half an hour was spent at the beer place. The cheese visit was disappointing, as only three samples were presented. The tour guide was knowledgeable.
Leon described himself as the second best tour guide as he is part time for Mike. The introduction at the City Hall and the walk to the Bronze Fonz was done well pointing our the Pabst Theater, the speakeasy, the signage, and the Electric generator. The 14 passenger bus was comfortable and the audience size made getting off and on at stops easy. Though it rained during part of the trip, the ride up the northeast side of Milwaukee showed off some amazing homes. The stop a the lighthouse was good. Seeing some of the mansions from the shore line drive was also impressive. The stop at the Art Museum was long enough for a restroom stop and to see the interior of this amazing building. The trip into the Third Ward and the revitalization of this warehouse district was okay as an introduction. The stop at the cheese shop/factory was short but long enough. The stop at Lakeside Brewery was too short. It was challenging to select a first beer tasting with the crowd present. The tour was well done. The second short beer tasting was rapidly followed by a walk to the gift shop trading the plastic tasting container for a glass made it difficult to do anything but chug the beer. The site could have been better with an additional 15 minutes. Even so, this is a quick and clear orientation to the City of Milwaukee.
