    James was an amazing tour guide. Might skip the Italian beef stop. Loved the rest! Would recommend. !

    This was an awesome walking tour. Our guide Josie was very pleasant, share great insights about the food and city, and kept things very interesting. The tour featured plenty of food, and the beer upgrade was worth it for a beer lover like me. The duration was just right as well. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to spend a couple of hours eating great food, enjoying drinks, and walking the beautiful city of Chicago.

    Learning about the history of Chicago and its infamous foods was definitely an amazing experience for my husband and I. We are first timers to Chicago, celebrating our 4 year anniversary!

    Excellent informative and delicious. It was great to get local specialties and the added history provided great context. Our guide Josie is fantastic, lively, and attentive. You are lucky if Josie is your guide. One star off ‘cause tour did not honor the 15-person limit as it promised in its promotion.

    Very nice tour guide. Wish I could remember her name. Pictured in review. Very knowledgeable. Remembering everyone of the 14 guests name was a nice priority.

    Those hot dogs… The garnishes & my goodness the buns with sesame seeds. Very different unlike to my simple buns from NY! And yes!! The architecture of Downtown Chicago, Chicago Tribune & more!!

    We did a walking food tour in Key West, so we knew we wanted to do one for our first time in Chicago, and it did not disappoint. Our tour guides Julia and Josie were AMAZING!! They made the experience so fun and entertaining. Learning about the city and eating the favorites was a great way to experience a new place.

    I loved this! Brooke was the best tour guide and it was really a fun way to learn about the city and get to eat some food. I see people complaining about not getting enough food but we got a full slice of pizza, an entire hot dog, half an Italian beef sandwich, and a brownie...I didn't need to eat for the rest of the night! Highly recommend if you are looking for something to do.

    The tour was fun and informative and the food was good but there was no where near enough for what we paid. I don't know if we didn't have enough based on the number of people in our group but we were disappointed by that.
