  • 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!
