Theresa Nemetz has been working with Viking officials for over a year to craft unique excursions for passengers to explore destinations when boarding and disembarking cruises. Her company, Milwaukee Food & City Tours, has been creating authentic food and history-centric city tours in Milwaukee for 13 years, so it was a natural pair.

That was the best transfer we have ever had. By the time we walked to the baggage carousel, our driver had our checked bags already picked up and on a carriage.  He sent us a text telling us where he was and gave a contact number. Flight was early, and we were off to Chicago.
