Explore the Nicollet Island neighborhood, where Minneapolis began, and stroll along the banks of the Mississippi River. Learn about its historical importance and stop at select restaurants along the way.

We Were Stood Up
Jacque_D, Aug 2020
We live 2 hours away. We arrived at the meeting location 15 minutes early and were stood up. No one was there. We waited for 20 minutes past the start time and called the number provided on our ticket. The operator tried to reach the tour company and got no answer. The operator tried emailing and again no response. I’ll be trying for a total refund. The thing is, we’d booked this same tour for 2 weeks earlier and that tour was cancelled. We re-booked and this time it was a no-show. I won’t be trying this tour ever again.
Fantastic food & fun history!

The tour guide told us the history of the area as we went from one great place to the next. We revisited two of her choices for dinners during our stay. Also ordered a cheese we tried!

It was wonderful! We were from out of state so this was a great way to not only try so really good food but also see the city and learn a little bit of its history as well!

The 92-degree, high humidity day didn’t affect the experience. Becca’s knowledge of the history and culture of the area along with her enthusiasm made for a delightful, delectable, food tour.
