5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Very informative and fun. The tour guide was knowledgeable, and the size of our group (9) made it manageable when going into the restaurants/shoppes to enjoy our visits. The food was delicious. Would do it again.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Delicious way to see and learn about Chicago whether your a native like we are or from out of town. It's one thing to hear about history and another to walk the streets where it happened and hear it told to you. We all had a great time and Nicole was very knowledgeable about the city and shops/restaurants. I liked that everywhere we stopped were all locally owned establishments. We are definitely going to try the Bucktown and Chinatown tours next. :)
