The Taste Twin Cities Food and Drink Tours are your one stop chance to tour some of the best local cuisine and local bars at one time. Taste Twin Cities was started due to a passion for food, drinks and the city.
Being home to so many great hidden gems, it was easy to see that a company was needed to make these local stops known to the public. Tour destinations vary but your tour will include tastings at different restaurants but also an inside view of history, culture and art. Here is a look at some of the top tour options.
Minneapolis Riverwalk Tour
This tour takes place from April through October and is a 3 hour walking tour of the Northeast Minneapolis neighborhoods and Minneapolis Mill District. They take place Saturdays from 11-2pm and start at Gold Medal Park ending in Northeast Minneapolis. Tickets are $45 and include sampling from a Thai restaurant, drinking local brewed craft beer, eating pasta, homemade gelato, savory European baked bread and enjoying local cheese curds.
PedalPub Taste – Eat Street
From April through October, check out the PedalPub Taste Tour where you’ll ride on the PedalPub bike and eat on the bike plus in restaurants. You’ll head down Eat Street, through Uptown and you’ll try food like German, pizza and authentic Mexican food.
Other Tour Options
The perfect Valentine’s treat comes from February through April by going on the Chocolates & Wine Decadence Tour. Try the Ethnic Market Tour, Minneapolis Eat & Sip Tour, Truffle Making with Master Chocolatier and Heart of Minneapolis Tour.
Taking a Tour
Make sure you purchase tickets in advance because they sell out quickly. You’ll get enough food during your tour to substitute your lunch or dinner that day. If you take the walking tour, you’ll be walking for up to 3 hours at a leisurely pace with a few places to sit along the way. Children are welcome on the tours but strollers may be hard to maneuver and leave the pets at home. Take a public tour or set up a private group tour.
What better way to show off your city to your out of town guests or to learn about new city spots you haven’t tried than to take a Taste Twin Cities tour.
