Emily, our tour guide, was awesome - very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods we walked through as well as the places we did the tastings. Loved it! Highly recommend!

Food Tour Leaves Me Hungery
Sat, May 24, 08   11:30 AM verbatim Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
A short summary of the food tour: The tour lasted approximately three and a half hours and we walked over two miles. The guide Emily was excellent and provided information about the areas visited. The food you receive is: a potatoe pancake, a glass of iced tea, several pieces of chocolate, a couple pieces of cheese, and a piece of pizza. The tour also ends quite a way from where it started which requires another half hour getting back. After visiting Chicago many times my advice would be to rent a bike and have a really nice upscale lunch. You would still have money left over for shopping. I did not feel the tour was worth the price charged.

The tour was exceptional in its choice of local and unique stopes: the best Chicago piza (stuffed), a local fudge shop (to die for) a spice shop, an oil and vinegar shop (for you chefs). Our guide was very enthusiastic and fun and informed. I would highly recommend this walking tour for Chicago.

More food please...

I thought this was a nice variation from your typical walking tours and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in seeing Chicago by foot (but only in great weather). It's also a good way to see the local restaurants even if they weren't directly involved with the tour. My only suggestions would be to have a smaller group and have more food tastings. There are only 8 tastings, 2 of them I don't necessarily consider food. They were the spice and vinger / oil tastings. While they were both an interesting and delicious experience, I thought perhaps having the condiments served with food rather than by itself would be a better experience. Also I would like to see one chocolate tasting rather than two. Also, I would suggest anyone to eat a meal prior to going. Although the website says people are generally full from the food tasting, the "real" food didn't happen until towards the end of the tour. My girlfriend and I had only a small breakfast thinking that we would leave room for the food tasting, but we found ourselves really hungry from all the walking. By the time the real food came (one slice of pizza), we were both already having hunger cramps. That said, I still had a good time. I learned a few things about Chicago and I got to taste some delicious food at the same time. Just needs more of it.

What a great way to see Chicago! The tour guide was nice, funny and very informative!!!! I loved the learning about Chicago facts, Chicago history and Chicago city suggestions from a local. And what a great way to do a tour via food! What a great way to learn about local Chicago restaurants, local eateries, food facts and also getting to taste delicious samples along the way!! I highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Chicago =) A+!

A Fun Afternoon

We thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining and fun tour through the Chicago neighborhoods. It was a lot of walking but we stopped several times to enjoy the various shops/eateries. We also had bathroom breaks and we did not go hungry! The tour guide, Emily, was outstanding. She was courteous, friendly and outgoing. It was a blast. Everyone on our tour thought so as well. We learned some local history and enjoyed the unique shops. It was well worth the time and money. Don't miss it!

DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR!
Sun, May 25, 08   11:00 AM PeggyY Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I am so glad that I booked this tour online. It was fabulous! Our tour guide, Emily, was wonderful - nice, thoughtful, knowledgable! The stops we made were really interesting and delicious! I loved the spice shop! I had never been to a vinegar and oil shop and enjoyed it tremendously. The pizza lunch was a nice stop. In fact, all the food stops were great. The walk was long, but very interesting and took us to neighborhoods that we wouldn't have visited on our own. Plus you need to walk a lot to walk off all the food! This tour was terrific!

A great time was had by all :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour, as did everyone in our group. The tour guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining and the tastings were great. It would have helped me to know that we were basically snacking until close to the end, I would have eaten something beforehand...but it was still great :)

A trip worth taking the time to do

We enjoyed seeing the different neighborhoods and all the tasting stops were great. We will go back to this area on our own. We would have liked to walk a little slowly so we could have taken in all the area around us. Our tour guide was great. I would recommend this to anyone.

We purchased two tickets for myself and my spouse. We have found that these tours offer you exposure to parts of the city we might not have seen otherwise. We enjoyed it very much and will be searching for these types of tours every time we go to a new city. Chris Sonntag

Fun, worthwhile afternoon adventure
Sun, May 25, 08   1:00 PM angelafra Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour; our guide, Shane, was personable and took good care of the group. His commentary on the architecture and neighborhoods we visited was an extra plus. The food stops were fun; favorites were the pizza place and the oil and vinegar shop. And the chocolate was delicious! One suggestion: We would suggest dropping the deli and the second chocolate shop and providing about 10 minutes in the oil and spice shops and maybe tea store for a quick shopping adventure. Because the tour covered so much area, it wasn't practical to get back to shop if you have limited time on your visit. And the stores and helpful owners were very appealing. Would definitely recommend this tour to others. And thanks to Shane for a nice afternoon.
