About Theresa Nemetz

Theresa Nemetz combined her love for Milwaukee and her husband’s love for great food to create Milwaukee Food & City Tours in 2008. Serving as a non-profit executive director and fundraiser at the time, the business started as a hobby and grew into a full-time career for both herself and her team of itinerary planners. Not only do they offer tours in Milwaukee, but after acquiring 2 Chicago-based companies, now also operate Chicago Food & City Tours. Theresa serves on the National Board of Director for the National Tour Association (NTA) and offers culinary vacations around the world under the name of Travel Deliciously.

While facing a 100% loss of revenue in 2020, Theresa pivoted the company significantly in order to survive as a tourism-based company during a pandemic by launching Delicious Food Delivered to bring local businesses to doorsteps.

Nemetz’s newest venture, however, looks beyond Milwaukee and Chicago. Great Lakes Shore Excursions / Tour The Great Lakes allows them to serve as the land agent for multiple cruise lines entering the Great Lakes as well as serving as a group travel itinerary expert in 25 port cities on the Great Lakes including Cleveland, Detroit, Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Kingston ON, Toronto ON, Sault Ste Marie, Mackinac Island, Duluth, Green Bay, Houghton and more.
