Really enjoyed this tour. Made a quick trip to Chicago and wanted to get a flavor of some of the neighborhoods and this one was perfect. The food was fantastic and more then ample, and my friend and I came home talking so favorably about it that other friends of ours have taken this same tour when they visited Chicago!

I've gone on several food tours in different cities and this was one of the best. Our guide was Amber. She was energetic, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I loved the neighborhood and the information Amber gave us. Loved several of the food choices Chicago style hot dog and iced chocolate. Tried something new in the falafel, which was not my favorite, but now I know what it tastes like. I would highly recommend this food tour and Amber as your guide.

Amber did a superb job of taking us through Wicker Park and Bucktown! From the yummy hot dogs to the decadent chocolate drink and then the Kale salad, the falafels and ultimately Stan and #39;s donuts, the food was delicious and the information about the area so interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed!

Better than I expected, and my expectations were high based off online and (live) friend recommendations! It was so fun to get away from all the touristy stuff for a bit, and take in some REAL Chicago. Kent was our guide and was awesome!

This was a great way to get to know the neighborhood - historically, as well as know what kinds of eating/dining and even entertainment there was available. We made several food stops, so you really should come hungry. Kent, our neighborhood guide, was truly wonderful. He made Bucktown and Wicker Park come to life. Everyone should find multiple things to enjoy on this tour.

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,

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!

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.
