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!

Great bike ride, ? customer service

This tour offers a great bike ride through the neighborhoods of Chicago. The food offered was delicious. I mistakenly booked the 5:30 tour instead of noon. I caught the mistake immediately. We booked on the morning of the tour. Called Viator within minutes; after some persuasion the rep agreed to call the bike shop to authorize changing to noon, which they did. Soon after the bike shop called me to say I owed an additional $20 to switch the time. Despite explaining it was a simple error on my part, I was told they had to call in another guide because of adding my 2 riders to noon. They had 2 groups of 10-11 riders at noon. This seemed more like an opportunity to demand more money for the same tour. LESSON: double check the time before paying. Our bike guide,Gabe, was great. We enjoyed the ride, the stops and the food offered.

Flat and easy bike ride and just the right amount of distance.Got to see and experience nice Chicago neighborhoods and try a slice of delicious pizza, hot dog with all sorts of toppings, an unforgettable cupcake and sample some good local beer. Gabe was a terrific tour guide with an endless amount of Chicago fun facts.

The title of my review is an inside joke between Omar (our guide) and my wife and I. Yes, Omar is that personable and easy to converse with that by the hot dog portion of our tour, we had inside jokes! Seriously though, this is a great tour made all the more awesome by Omar. He is a great storyteller and the 4 hours and 13 miles flew by! I highly recommend this tour and please do not be daunted by the 13 miles. The bikes are great, the roads are flat and you get breaks.....with beer!!

It was not the greatest day to be riding for a 4 hour bike/bites/brew tour but Kevin made it a lot of fun. We had a great time, good food and beer. Our tour guide was funny and informative, he kept the group moving and enjoying each other's company. My husband, daughter and myself had a lot of fun. We would recommend this to all visiting Chicago. Thanks

This was a fun tour. Ro, the tour leader, had infectious energy and led a wonderful tour. Since she is a native of the area she had extensive knowledge. The food stops were fun and good food, especially the cupcake at Swirlz. Wrigley Field is a must stop to appreciate Chicago. The final stop at Theater on the Lake is wonderful with the lake view. Great tour!
