Know More about this tour

Follow your knowledgeable guide through downtown Chicago and visit a number of stunning indoor spaces including the historic Palmer House Hotel, the Walnut Room and Macy’s. Your guide also takes you to various spots for samples of some of Chicago’s favorite foods such as pizza, hot dogs, brownies, and beer from a local brewery.

Architectural highlights include Millennium Park, a modern town square with a collection of art, architecture, and gardens that provide a stunning backdrop for hundreds of cultural events. Nearby, walk along the Chicago River, a system of waterways that links to the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico. It's a key reason that Chicago became a powerhouse city,
facilitating trade in the Midwest and beyond. If you visit in March, don't be alarmed if the water appears radioactive green — it's actually a St Patrick's Day tradition to add (non-toxic) dye to the river for the festivities.

Step inside the gorgeous and historic Palmer Hotel, host to many luminaries since it opened in 1875. Presidential candidates Grover Cleveland and Ulysses S. Grant stayed in the luxurious hotel, as did writers Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde and L. Frank Baum. Your guide shows you ornate interiors and shares the colorful history of this hotel. Then see the iconic Marshall Field’s Building, with its beautiful atrium, mosaic ceiling designed by Tiffany & Co, and famous outdoor clocks.

During colder months, your guide leads you on a route through the Chicago Pedway system, a network of tunnels, ground-level concourses and bridges that connects sites throughout Chicago’s central business district, keeping you comfortably warm. During warmer times of the year, walk along the large scenic promenades of the Loop.

Expect to walk at a leisurely pace for 1.5 miles during the 3-hour tour, suitable for most fitness levels, with plenty of stops for tastings and photo ops. All tastings and beverages are included.

  • it was the perfect taste of chicago food tour. it was just my friend and I and our guide, Perry, was super fun and nice. definitely recommend this tour!!

  • Absolutely loved the tour. Perry did an outstanding job telling us all about the city. The food was awesome you get a slice of pizza, a hotdog, brownie, and two beers. How can you go wrong with that!! I would totally recommend, the walking isn't bad at all.

  • Lotsa fun!! Our guide-JJ. Was excellent in every way. FUn,knowledgeable, really added something to our day!

  • Felt a bit rushed particularly at the pizza place and would have been nice to be able to get a salad or some vegetables. Could have skipped the Exchequer.

  • This was even better than expected. I toured with my wife and two grandchildren and we all loved it. We anticipated a food tour, which it was. It was also a great history and cultural tour of the area.
    Class was fantastic, she was knowledgeable, warm, and comfortable with the grandchildren.

  • A good time! Got to see a few Chicago sights and experience Chicago style pizza, hot dogs, and a couple of Chicago brewed beers! Our guide was energetic and informative. Not a ton of walking, which was good. A fun day in Chicago!

  • it was fun, informative and tasty!!

  • This tour was enjoyable and our guide Cas was enthusiastic and informative. But I suggest saving the alcohol for a night tour than a day tour. It slowed things down to drink the beers. I wish we'd visited more local eateries or the newest chef the city had to offer. Mix the food of history with the new.
