Interesting and fun

I was a little surprised that the 'tour' only included the building where we started out - the Shaker Cigar Bar, but there was a lot of story to go with the building. Our guide... read more

First, it's a cigar bar. Smoke is present. If you are okay with that, your experience will be well rewarded. Tried a selection of awesome drinks - 18 year old rum, Absinthe cocktails (WOW), tasty beers, and more traditional offerings. This is not a regular bar. Dinner selections were extraordinary. Few restaurants in Milwaukee have the passion that the chef... More

I want to start this review by saying that I was a skeptic on the paranormal before this tour, and nothing I saw or heard there has convinced me otherwise. I want to also say I took the tour because even though I do not believe these things to be true, I love a good ghost story and the history... More

I came in with a group of friends and got some really great cocktails on a random Friday night. We were approached by a girl with blue hair who told us about the tours they do in house which I had no idea about. We decided to hop on since we didn't have set plans for the night and I'm... More

Had a very informative and fun time! Loved seeing the entire old bar and hearing all the stories. Great one hour fun. I would take out of town friends and do it again. Didn't eat there but had some mixed drinks which were done very well. Nice staff.

WOW! We accidentally showed up at the wrong starting location. One of the owners of the tour company was nice enough to DRIVE us to meet the group! Then when we made it to the right location, she did the portion of the tour that we had missed. Her stories of haunting a and death were geeked with such passion... More

We planned the overnight stay for our anniversary. It was great! We had taken the tour several times, but this was the big deal! An amazing gourmet meal, great cigar and drink selection, the last tour of the night. Then we were all alone in Molly's apartment...It was inspiring to imagine all that had happened in that room. We did... More

This is a great tour to go on if you have a night free and are just looking for some spooky fun. It's not too long, lasting around maybe an hour. The bar supposedly serves the most absinthe of any bar in Wisconsin, so make sure to get your absinthe cocktail before starting! I went with two friends, and we... More

I enjoyed learning about the history of the fifth ward (Walker's Point). It was difficult to imagine everything that went on at the location. The tour guide was informative, but I left wondering how they obtained all of the 'insider' information. It was fun, not very expensive. We did not eat there, however the pizza looked very good.

Could not find a place to warn people about Shaker's Whxxing 20's Tours so I'm doing it here. A complete waste of time and money. Nothing to see but parking lots where cat houses USED to be and a tour guide who had almost nothing to say. I can only hope Shaker's other tours are better. ps. I had to... More
