    Nice walking tour and knowledgeable guide. The foods sampled were a great variety. I can’t remember our guide’s name she had great stories and tips.

    Did this tour yesterday. Agi was our tour guide and had so much to share, not just food wise but also about the city while we were walking. It might go for 3 hours but it went so fast and the local foods we got to try were incredible. Thank you Agi

    Excellent tour. We enjoyed all of the food stops as well as all of the sights/history...that was an added bonus. Susie was a great guide!

    Elizabeth was an excellent guide, very personable and knowledgeable about the area and its foods. However, we think the food itself was only average. The Brownie was not enjoyable and the Chicago Hot Dog was nothing special from a bar in the basement of a Macy's. However, Elizabeth took us to the Chicago Cultural Center to see the Tiffany Dome and to the Pedway and showed us many other interesting sites. It was an interesting tour, thanks to Elizabeth, but not the food.

    Elizabeth was an excellent guide. We learned some of the cities history, and did not go hungry. Plenty of information and food. - Great Value.

    don't miss this tour! Elizabeth gave a great tour, a mixture of the city history and the history of the food and restaurants themselves. When they say "Come hungry" they are not kidding! There is so much food on this tour it's amazing. Don't miss this tour and hopefully, get Elizabeth as your guide Great personality made it so fun and interesting!

    We were a small group so the tour was about 2 hours as we spent less time at each food stop - a bigger group would be closer to the 3 hour mark. Varied food offerings - deep pan pizza (crunchy not doughy which was a relief), brownies, German sausage and egg noodle, Italian beef, chocolate and popcorn. All the food was good but the medic of savoury then sweet then savoury again was a bit odd and we brought our chocolate home rather than eat it between 2 savoury offerings. Elizabeth our guide was fun and engaging, and clearly knew the city and its food history. The tour included some historic sights and she took us into buildings we probably wouldn’t have seen without her, so that was a great bonus. Overall a good tour but perhaps more thought needed on the order of stops?
