This was a great way to take in the highlights of Milwaukee. I had limited time to see a city that I had never visited, and this bus was perfect. The tour guides were local and knew a lot about the history of the city and places to visit. The bus was always on schedule so it

Tyler, our guide, was great. We did the hour long loop to get an overview of the city and to decide where we wanted to hop off. The only problem with that is once you hop off, you have to wait an hour to get back on since they only run 1 bus. We got off at the Lakefront Brewery

Indeed, we hope to be able to expand enough to purchase 2 additional buses so that we can run the tour on a 20 minute loop instead of a 1 hour loop. It's a hearty investment, so our focus right now has been making sure that we are stopping at locations that work well in 1 hour visits. Thank you for joining us and allowing us to show you the city!!

Our guide Amanda was very kind and informed. We didn’t realize that they stopped at 3:30 and got caught up in some traffic from lake front activities so we didn’t get to see too much. But Amanda was very helpful in pointing out some options we could do instead. Would recommend,

Thank you for joining us on our Hop on Hop off Sightseeing Bus! Indeed, the traffic from the Air Show on that last loop was pretty intense, but we're glad we were able to show you the city on an hour loop and provide recommendations of other things to do as well.

Spoke to customer rep and told me that nearest pickup was at Harley Davidson at 11:50 but there would be 2 buses. I got there at 11:55 and missed first bus. Waited 20 minutes and was about to enter Harley Museum when 2nd bus showed up. Got on second bus and got off at

We are sorry! Indeed, when President Trump arrived in Milwaukee for his Noon press conference, all streets became impassable. We were at a standstill, along with most traffic in the area. We were able to get back on track with timing by the start of the 2 pm loop, but it was a situation we had never encountered before. My apologies! We did refund monies to a guest that shared the exact same scenario with us, so I believe you have been taken care of. If not, please call our office for a refund.
