Lovely tour. Tour guide had a bubbly personality. We enjoyed all of the food stops and went back to them after the tour to purchase their tasty treats. We enjoyed the architecture of the Gold Coast/Old Town too. Charming neighborhoods.

I was on my own for the day in Chicago and signed up for this tour. Sadie was a fantastic guide for the tour and the tour itself was excellent. Not only was the food delicious, but the area is beautiful and I learned a lot about both the Gold Coast/Old Town neighborhoods and the food. Wonderful way to spend a few hours while in Chicago!

It was informative and the food was great!! I wish we would of had some time to shop or the shops but a package together we could buy. I was from out of town and would have bought on the spot.

I loved it! This was a great way to see some Chicago neighborhoods - I went to places that I never would have found on my own. Our guide was great, and I loved the variety of food tastings. I read reviews before I booked, and though some people noted that they didn't have a sufficient quantity of food, that was not my experience. We were offered seconds at virtually every stop. I will certainly book another of these tours when I'm back in Chicago!

I would definitely recommend the Gold Coast and Old Town tour. The host was knowledgeable and friendly. In addition to interesting history of the food places we visited, she added a little bit of other Chicago history for good measure. And the restaurants and shops were all wonderful and inviting. All the food and beverages were great! Definitely plenty to eat too - was not hungry at all!

Team outing - We had such FUN. The food was great! Our guide AMBER was the best and really knew how to keep us interested and focussed on every aspect of the tour. We want to plan our next Viator outing and would love to be able to request AMBER to lead us.

Our guide was the best!!! She loves Chicago and it was very clear in her enthusiasm during our tour! We enjoyed her historical information and knowledge about the places we visited. Our group of 6 blended in with the others very well. Everything we tasted was well above our expectations. It was the right amount to taste! The places we visited were very informative about their products. We'll be going back to most of them on our next visit!

If going to Chicago anytime soon, do yourself a favor and book this tour! Great food, fascinating history and gorgeous buildings made for an excellent afternoon. Kent was our guide and did an amazing job of being personable, knowledgeable and very welcoming. I would go on another tour in a heartbeat.

Very interesting, would definately recommend.
Much better way to see off the beaten path parts of the city then say, your typical riverboat tour.
Only downside: Not much FOOD on the tour - I was expecting to be full like on most other food tours I've done, but wasn't...

Everything about his tour was impressive: guide, locations, and food. Kent did a fantastic job to introducing the food, establishment, as well as neighborhoods of Chicago. We highly recommend this tour!

The Gold coat for tour was so much fun. Great guide (Jess), so knowledgable and nice. The selection of food spots was great and walking was easy. Loved how Jess talked about history, architecture and other city anecdotes. Highly recommended!!!!

I highly recommend this enjoyable tour! I was visiting my son in Chicago, and wanted to pick one fun sightseeing activity for the two of us for a day in the city. We'd already done more traditional sightseeing in the past, so I picked this unique food tour for this visit, and we were both glad I did! Sadie, our personable and knowledgeable guide, made sure everyone in our small group 9 on this particular tour enjoyed the experience. There was a great mix of tasty food reasonable portions so no one got too full and interesting food shops I particularly enjoyed the spice shop experience, interspersed with a fun architectural/historical tour of the Old Town/Gold Coast neighborhoods. The 3 hours flew by! People in our group ranged in age from mid 20s to mid 60s, and all ages enjoyed the tour.

Went with two friends, and even though we know Chicago quite well, this was the highlight of our girlfriend weekend. Our tour guide, Jackie, was excellent knowledgeable, funny, kept the tour on track. The food was great definintely enough for lunch. I was least excited about the spice and oil/vinegar stops only because I've been to these kinds of shops before, but was surprised to enjoy them so much because of the education and suggestions/tastings for combinatons, etc. Also enjoyed walking through neighborhoods and getting some history. Can't wait to go back to Chicago and take another one of their food tours!

I enjoyed the food tour. It allowed me to visit an area of Chicago that I probably would not have visited on my own. The food we tasted was delicious, and our tour guide Angie was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable.

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.

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. :)

Wonderful. Even though the weather was wet and cold the tour was well worth it. We heard history and saw sections of Chicago we would have missed if we hadn't taken the tour
