The Complete Twin Cities Walking Tour

By Depot Adventures Minnesota
Whether you’re new to Minnesota or have been a lifetime resident, the secrets sitting in our capital city are sure to surprise you. Join an expert local guide as you explore the rags and riches of this incredible city — from the wealth Summit Hill neighbourhood, to the secret caves that stored illegal booze-making facilities, you’ll learn that there’s lot more to this city than meets the eye. You’ll start your tour atop one of the 7 hills of St. Paul, then head over to the Capitol before weaving back into admission the high-rises of downtown. Along the way you’ll learn stories of old St Paul, stop for a coffee at a fantastic local establishment, and finish with a beer for the road.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My guide Colin was extremely knowledgeable and tailored the tour to my interests. This was my first visit to St. Paul, so I was happy to learn so much about the city’s history, culture, and architecture while seeing all the beautiful scenery. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who loves to walk around to get the feel of a place new to them. I never would have found these things on my own. Thank you so much!

John was a great tour guide and took us through a lot of interesting places in St. Paul. Even as a local I learned a lot and would recommend the tour to locals and travelers alike! The tour is a great combination of walking, standing, and sitting. You can tell John is passionate about history, and he does a great job of sharing stories rather than just spouting facts. We’ll definitely try Depot’s other tours in the future!

Tour guide was Dan. Extremely informative and interesting. Provided insights and information never would have picked up elsewhere. Also gave me some tips on great things to do after the tour I never would have known about. Really enjoyed it, and was the highlight of my trip.
