  • Great sample of Chicago's favorite foods with history lessons along the way. Fun family trip with teenagers.

  • Teddy was an excellent tour guide. The food stops were good and he was great at explaining the history of the food as well as some added Chicago history. Easy fun walking tour. I highly recommend for everyone

  • Mikkel was terrific. He was knowledgeable about the city, it's history, and the food we ate. Come hungry! The tour had delicious food. The amount of walking was just right. Wonderful to be in downtown Chicago. Well worth your time while visiting Chicago.

  • The food was delicious. Our guide Gabe was a sweetheart and very knowledgeable. My sister and I were impressed and enjoyed the brisk walk.

  • Justin was very informative and so friendly. He knew lots about Chicago and was so welcoming. We loved all of the choices he picked and the walk around downtown Chicago was great. Would highly recommend.

  • Had a great tour guide (Nick M.) who showed us great food places and was very knowledgeable. He helped me learn some new facts about Chicago!

  • What a super fun tour. Jackie did a great job showing us Chicago and all the wonderful food and areas associated with Chicago. Her stories and history of the area were outstanding! If you are looking for great food and fun this tour is for you!

  • First, let me say there is more walking to this tour than I expected and more than is typical for food tours, so be prepared. Justin was our guide and he was excellent. I learned a lot about Chicago from him. I do not think that any of my negative comments should reflect on him, but rather on the structure of the tour. You should know that this tour does not end where it begins, but a bit of a walk away. That means if you do find parking where the tour begins, you'll have to figure out how to walk back to the beginning on your own. My chief complaint was not the food, as it was excellent. However, there was a lengthy wait for some of the food. I realize the restaurants were busy, but they had the order well ahead of time. Because of this, this tour ran over by a considerable amount and I had to miss the 4th place, the dessert because of another obligation. The Chicago-style hot dog and pizza restaurants really took a very long time to deliver the food. Seating was also not readily available at the establishments. So, if you take this tour, add an extra hour on to the suggested ending time. Be prepared to walk.. This tour just needs to be tightened up and it will be excellent. Justin, thank you for doing a great job!

  • Lots of food and great tour. Wish they could accommodate intolerance to dairy better, but it’s hard to do.

  • Thought I was going on a food tour. Slice of pizza, hot dog and brownie wasn’t what I expected. I should have done more research ahead of time.
