Great Food Tour!

The tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable about the topic. He had answers really available, and if not, he knew how to find it.

I had an excellent tour with Lara!! She was friendly, professional, helped me feel included. She offered tons of great history, general chicago information and shared some fantastic food! I would definitely book again, or recommend.
Go hungry, and enjoy!

Really enjoyable experience. The food was authentic Chicago Street food. We were treated to Chicago hot dog, Italian beef sandwich and Chicago pizza. All were delicious. I have to say though our host, a guy named Dash was excellent. He really brought the experience to life. He truly had a passion for his own city and he was so knowledgeable about the history and stories behind the foods we sampled. Even when we finished the tour and he was 'off the clock', he was off in the same direction as us so continued to tell us about the city, the buildings and the culture. Fabulous guy and a fabulous tour

Kelly was an awesome tour guide! Has so much love and passion for her city and it shows. She talked about the cities history as well as all the food history surrounding the tour spots. Thanks for a great time Kelly!
Great experience with some added suggestions
, Aug 2021
Hi: great experience for those who’ve never been to Chicago and love city life. My only suggestions would be that the company provides reusable cups or at least water to carry as you are walking from site to site. Also they should consider providing paper plates for the experience. Also the servers should also wear gloves considering the times that we live in. All in all great experience and I would definitely do again.
More food Options
, May 2021
This was a pretty goo tour, would have liked more food options to try. Our tour guide Wallach was amazing!
Good but...
, Apr 2021
I expected more facts about the city and the food. I expected more food variety. I expected more walking. However, the pizza, hotdog, sandwich were delicious and we were provided generous portions. The guides were delightful.

Just Do It
, Sep 2020
Kelly did an excellent job of balancing a lot of different things during our tour: history of the city, the food, the culture, gracefully handling unknown wait times with the restaurants and making us feel safe doing a food tour during the pandemic. We really enjoyed the information and the food, and would definitely recommend. We’re even going back to one of the places again today. :)
