Our "Skywaukee" 11 am tour guide, Judy, was engaging, entertaining and super knowledgeable about the early history of Milwaukee. Our group of 4 was impressed with the beautiful and relatively unknown skywalks providing the beautiful river and city views. Very professionally run. Will do another. Thanks!

Good outing after many snow days. Leader was strong fan of Milwaukee but felt the need to lecture on social justice. While i did not disagree with her views, i felt this was an odd venue for it
