Wonderful experience!
Sep 2019 • Solo
I went on this tour this past weekend and it was an amazing experience . Colleen was my guide, and I am not sure if I would’ve had the same experience with another guide. She was very energetic, informative, and engaging. She threw in tidbits of Chicago history, as well as little known facts. She was able to not only suggest/recommend different restaurants/bars in the area, but also tell why she liked one more than the other. She was able to answer all questions, and also was patient with me as I tried to accommodate Chicago’s strict parking rules, and having to leave the tour twice to feed the meter/charge my phone :/. Thanks for all your help Colleen!!! A+++

Suzy was our tour guide and she did a fantastic job of not only taking us from location to location but giving us a history of the locations that we were eating at. The short walk in between locations was helpful so you were not too full to eat at the next location!

Fun and Filling!
We enjoyed learning a lot about Chicago’s history while enjoying tasting some great food. Pizza and hotdogs were tops! At The Billy Goat Tavern it was fun to relive the Cheezborger, Cheezborger skit from SNL. We were stuffed by the end. I wouldn’t have minded a faster paced walk with a more circuitous route to help wear off some calories - some of the stops seemed a bit longer than necessary. Overall though, I would recommend this tour. Come with an appetite!
