We had a great time on the Food Tour. There was a good mix of eating, learning about food and walking. The small group was great. We got to know each other a little bit. Alex, our tour guide, was fantastic. We will do this again.

We would highly recommend this tour - it was a great way to get to see and know more about some parts of Chicago, our guide Brian was brilliant! We were introduced to deep dish pizza, toffee, Croque Monsieur, tea and different flavoured oils and vinegar, it really was a taste sensation! Brian also gave us a list of recommendations of restaurants which was great, would highly recommend this to anyone who loves food!
