Good Times!

This was such a great tour! The bike ride portion was way easier than expected and we got to see so much of the city. I’ve been to Chicago plenty of times but it was a new side I hadn’t experienced yet. I highly recommend and our tour guide Kevin was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and made the tour a lot of fun!

Fun day date, seeing the city in a different light. Saw sites that we have never seen and learned the history behind our stops. Very fun, relaxing and a cool afternoon. Would definitely recommend and we can’t wait to go back. Great for families too.

Great Use of Four Hours!

Gabe was our tour guide and he was very personable and inclusive in his interaction with those of us in the group. He was also good about making sure the group stayed together throughout the ride. The food options were good and exposed me to a different option for Chicago style pizza. The bike ride and the return route via the bike trail alongside Lake Michigan was amazing. I didn't want to leave. BTW - My last non-stationary bike ride was over a decade ago, but it didn't take long to get back comfortable on two wheels. So, don't let the last time you were on a bike keep you from participating on this tour. It's a four hour ride, but the time between riding and stopping (to eat and sightsee) is well balanced, which takes away the feeling of doing too much of one or the other. This is probably obvious, but worth noting is that this tour is in non-congested locations, which is great, but if you are expecting to see city landmarks, you will need to supplement this tour with another. Also, if you take this tour, unless something changes, you can rent one of the bikes from them at a discounted rate.

The Best Bike and Food Tour EVER!!

Bikes are sturdy and comfortable to ride. They have a little pouch on the front to hold keys, water bottle, and phone. The neighborhoods we rode through were so cool with old and new architecture. The pizza and hot dogs were great! The pastry shop where we stopped for brownies was disappointing because they were prepackaged and dry... All of the scenic stops were fantastic whether it was the park, Wrigley Field, or the lake front. Lots of great picture opportunities. The lake front ride was really busy, but it was a beautiful day. Our host, James, was upbeat, professional, and was knowledgeable about the sites we visited.

!!!Perfect for quarantine adventure!!!! Social distancing and all safe guidelines are enforced. Gabe was great, showed us around, answered all questions and he is just fun to be around all day. Tried all the best food items in one day. I do recommend to skip breakfast for 11 am tour. As a New Yorker I officially recommend spinach dip dish pizza :) I would definitely go again when I’m in town.

I was in Chicago with my friend for a girl's weekend and we found this bike tour to be the perfect way to see the city. It was wonderful. Great food choices, good biking route, and the perfect mix of tour guide/comedian. Kevin took time to stop to see the sites, and grab a few pictures too. We really did have a blast.

This tour was great! I really enjoyed getting to see northern Chicago neighborhoods and tasting the tasty treats. The hot dog and pizza were both great! The only thing is I wish we had a little more time to drink our beers :) But you can always go back to the bars. Overall, worth it!
