Whole Damn City Tour


St. Louis isn’t a normal city, and this isn’t a normal tour.  In two hours we will cover as much ground as possible by bus, taking you beyond the neat and tidy parts, showing you both the grandeur and the dark underbelly that is our fascinating city. From Carondelet to the Arch, from Fairgrounds Park to Forest Park, we will see it all and learn just how all the pieces fit together. As always, the tour is presented in our signature entertaining style, with lots of discussion & dialogue. And maybe a few curse words.

Whole Damn City Tour: Badass Babes

Just like our original WDC tour, we will cover a whole lotta ground and history--but this one is for the (historical) ladies--the badasses, the beauties, the brains, and the, um, other B-words, that have made STL their home. 

Whole Damn City Tour: Disasters and Catastrophes

St. Louis in the time(s) of cholera…fires, tornadoes, and that one time the sewers exploded. Join us on a grand tour of all the natural and (more often than not) man made disasters that have shaped the city’s intricate history. While our history nerd will tell you all the macabre and gory details, our architecture nerd will counter with how those dark moments have shaped the built environment of not only St. Louis, but the entire country.

Meet Your Maker(s)

Beer and shoes get a lot of play (historically speaking) when it comes to STL’s manufacturing badassery. But we've made a crazy amount of other cool things-and STILL DO. Ever wonder just what in the heck is happening in all those non-descript buildings along the riverfront? Do you get hot and bothered when admiring the gorgeous architecture of nineteenth century warehouses? Want to feel blessed not to have a tannery down your street? Join us as we drive all over this darn city and be prepared to learn a crapload about the crazy, fascinating history of making shit in St. Louis! This tour features multiple stops with factory tours, a few strange smells, and, for the first time, FOOD SAMPLES.
