Feeling a little Grinchy or maybe just looking to get into the Christmas Spirit? Join our festive Holiday Past, Present, and Future Light Tour! As for decorations and lights in the city changes every year, so does this seasonally popular tour.

We pick you up at a newer venue in Milwaukee’s Brewery District that is sure to be decked out with the warm glow of Christmas lights. Our guide will welcome you with 3D glasses to transform your experience. We will then board our bus or cruiser depending on your group size to set out into the night. From there, we will turn up the Christmas music and start our adventure.

Expect an interactive evening of caroling and hopping on and off the cruiser/bus for some colorful photo ops should you be inclined. We’ll take you to some of the most popular Christmas light destinations the city has to offer including; Catalano Square, Zeidler Park, Pere Marquette Park, Cathedral Square, and the Hoan Bridge, with a whole lot of magical, twinkly lights in between. We can never forget what Milwaukee is known best for – beer! Together, we’ll take a step back in time as we drive through the former Pabst Brewery complex to revisit Milwaukee’s history and rich holiday traditions.

Our final stop will be at Nicole’s Third Ward Social offers you a perfect spot to enjoy a little Christmas “cheer” and dessert before we end our evening filled with lights and great memories. Whether you are a local or visiting from out of town, this tour is sure to become a new tradition for you, your family, and friends. City Tours MKE makes it easy for you to gather together to enjoy the warmth and cheer of the holiday season in Milwaukee while leaving the rest to us.

Please note: While we try to avoid splitting folks up between cars, occasionally this is necessary based on group tour numbers. If you absolutely do not want to risk going into separate cars, please consider booking a private tour instead. Cars travel together during a tour. It’s only during transport between stops that you would be split. Each car seats 5 passengers, so any groups larger than 5 will need to split.

Why tour with City Tours MKE?

Sustainable: We are eco-focused and use low-speed electric vehicles

Personalized: In our cruisers we have only 5 guests per tour guide, meaning a more tailored experience

Fun! We are passionate about all things Milwaukee and love sharing our city with you!
