Taste Twin Cities offers two tour routes during the summer months

Taste Twin Cities’ walking food tours continue to wander through Minneapolis, giving guests a chance to visit city landmarks while sampling a variety of foods and drinks.

Taste Twin Cities first introduced the walking food tours in 2011. They offer two different tours in the summer: The Riverwalk Tour from April to October, which explores the Mill District and Northeast Minneapolis, and the Heart of Minneapolis Tour from June to August, which takes guests through downtown Minneapolis and the Theater District.

Each tour has five stops where participants can sample locally crafted beers and a wide variety of foods, from sweet desserts to pasta and cheese curds. Most of the stops are restaurants, including Hell’s Kitchen, Crave and Wilde Roast Cafe, but the tours also include stops and samples from shops like Cocoa & Fig and Candyland.

Tour guests are also taken to some of Minneapolis’ most prominent landmarks, including the Foshay Tower and IDS Center in the Heart of Minneapolis Tour, and the Mill City Museum and St. Anthony Falls in the Riverwalk Tour.

The tours vary in distance, but each takes three hours and is offered on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets can be purchased online for $45 a person. Tour groups are limited to 12 people, and private tours can also be booked.
