Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She even told us about other places to see and eat in Chicago. I would recommend this tour for tourists and local residents as well. We’d do it again.

My boyfriend and I went on this tour together while I visited him in Chicago for the first time and enjoyed the food, history, and getting to walk around all over. Be sure to wear tennis shoes and be hungry because you will be full when your finished.

I went on both the Wicker Park and River North tours, and as a local Chicagoan, both tours introduced me to new foods/history/culture of Chicago, and also reminded me of why I love this city. Highly recommended for both locals and tourists! Better yet, locals bring your tourist friends and have a great afternoon experiencing Chicago in a tasty and fun way!

This was a great tour! The food was delicious and diverse. Our guide, Sarah, was very informative and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to explore a neighborhood of Chicago (Wicker Park) you’ve probably never been to before.

This was a great way to explore a new city! Mike was a fantastic tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the area. The sidewalk food tour combined two of my favorite activities: walking and eating. So fun.

We took the River North tour with Jake. This was such a great way to see the city and sample a variety of food. I liked that the sit down restaurants alternated with the stand and eat places with a walk in between. I loved the pizzap and I always appreciate an opportunity to sample Rick Bayless' food!
