Fun time, good food, guide was great

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Excellent tour with soooo much food. Kent was knowledgeable about the area and provided a relaxed pace for the group. The food stops were varied but very close together so it was hard to eat so much all at once. We were blessed with a beautiful day for our tour which was a bonus for mid November.
I'd recommend this for a great day out in Chicago off of Michigan Ave,

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Fantastic! Kent's knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods, food and lore was the best part of the tour...or maybe a tie with the food?! Had a wonderful time and discovered local places we'll definitely visit again. Thank you!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Had a great time w/Kent touring the areas. He's very informative and knows his stuff. Food was great and filling. The walks in between food stops was decent, it allows you to get hungry for the next stop.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This tour was great. Kent brought history and humor together with great tastings!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was a very informative tour about the history of Wicker Park and Bucktown as well as introducing us to some excellent places in the area with good food. Kent did a nice job of keeping the group interested and encouraged us to ask questions. It would be a good idea for the guides to wear name tags of some sort as I want to credit him with providing a very enjoyable tour, so I hope I got his name right. The tour was well paced for the variety of ages in attendance. Overall, I enjoyed the tour and have recommended it to friends planning a trip to Chicago. Thank you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Excellent guide, Kent. Very knowledgeable about the area. Lots of great stories and interesting facts. The food was excellent! This tour is highly recommended. we have been going to Chicago every year for two decades and even with that being said, we learn something new about the area. Totally loved it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

It was great- hope to do another one when I'm back in Chicago!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

It was a wonderful way to really see the area. The food stops were spot on. Each one offering a different and unique taste of the area. Our guide did a wonderful job telling stories as we did the walking portion. Best of all it gave me a chance to spend some special time with my daughter who now lives in Bucktown. She knows so much more about her new neighborhood. The next time I visit, we want to try the Chinatown tour.
