Explore the city of Madison in a whole new way on a walking food tour! Over this three hour experience sample classic Wisconsin cuisine at five different tasting locations while also learning about the city's amazing history, architecture and culture along the way. The tours are small groups with a maximum for 12 participants. The tour lasts 3 hours and includes an easy, 1.5 mile walk around the Capitol Square area of Madison. There are restrooms and water available throughout the duration of the tour. Allergy and dietary restrictions can be accommodated for as well as strollers and wheelchairs. All tours have a professional guide that shares knowledge about the history of Madison and the creation of the food and beer samples that the guests have.

The tour begins at 12:00pm at the first tasting location, The Great Dane. Food and beer samples will be provided as guests learn about the history of the restaurant and bratwurst in Wisconsin. From there the group will casually walk towards the next tasting location, stopping to talk about 2 architectural points and the creation of Madison by James Doty. Once arriving at the second stop, Gotham Bagels, guests will sample and hear about the only NYC style bagel shop in Madison that has been family owned and operated since 2007.

Continuing on the walk around the Capitol Square area we stop to talk about the impressive Dane County Farmer's Market and the busting State Street, which is where the third and fourth tastings take place. Sampling Mackinac Island style fudge at Kilwins and deep fried cheese curds at Wisconsin Brewing Tap Haus. From there the tour hears the controversial story behind Madison's first skyscraper and takes a sneak peek inside the beautiful Capitol.

The tour ends at a swanky burger joint, DLUX, where the guests get to sample delicious milkshakes made from Wisconsin ice cream, the perfect end cap for a Wisconsin food tour.
