We took the tour on a Tuesday (because Monday’s tour was full) and the weather was lovely. Sunny and 70 degrees. We were the only ones on the tour. This was good and bad. Good because we got the tour guide’s undivided attention and she customized the tour for us. And bad because I think it is more fun to... More

Took the Taste of Chicago Food Tour and had a fabulous time! Annalynn was an awesome tour guide and in addition to the food stops she showed us some non food spots that we may not have seen on our own. The food was great and there was plenty to sample but the knowledge of Annalynn was the best part.... More

Johnson, our tour guide, made this "Taste of Chicago" a wonderful experience for all ages. Our group consisted of a variety of ages, including a young child, and he accommodated for all of them! The food is undeniably delicious, as we ate food from famous Chicago deep-dish pizza to brownies. Don't worry about the calories, though, as between each food-stop... More

We went as a team activity on a business trip and everyone had a great time. Our tour guide (I believe her name was Ann Marie or something similar) was great!... More

Food-wise it was the standard Chicago fare (deep dish pizza, Chicago style hot dog...). The pizza was excellent and loved hearing about the history of this small little restaurant with deep roots in the deep dish style. Outside of the food, the guide was a wealth of information on other Chicago history.
