What can I say, everything about this tour was amazing! Our hosts/guides, the restaurants, the neighborhood, the history, and the FOOD! Our hosts, Alia and Carlin (I hope I have spelled their names properly) were both excellent! Their combined knowledge on the area, history of the residents, cuisines, specific ingredients/flavors, and prep/cooking techniques were truly wonderful - they made the... More

This is our fourth culinary/cultural walking tour. We have been on two in New York and one in Scottsdale, AZ and now the Chicago one. We enjoy these tours because of their uniqueness. You experience a variety of different foods and learn about the neighborhoods. In Chicago, we experienced the Buckland/Wicker Park neighborhood. The cultural part of the tour focused... More

I got the food tour for my daughters 24th birthday. We absolutely loved the tour. We had a great time. Nicole was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. The tour was more than what my daughter and I expected. Nicole did a wonderful job explaining the history and the restaurants history. I would highly recommend this tour. A+... More

This is my first time in visiting Chicago that I have ventured out of the Loop area. What a great way to explore a new area of Chicago. Carrie was enthusiastic, informative, and passionate about her neighbourhood. I would recommend this tour. The food was a nice sampling of true Chicago food (hotdogs), and unique boutique local food places. I... More

Loved this food tour visiting 7 places in three hours along with some interesting history and buildings. Guide, Nicole, was excellent and knew her information well. As a dietitian I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys learning about food.

We had a great time on our tour of the Old Town and Gold Coast neighborhoods. The food was delicious, and we learned tidbits about both the neighborhood and about each merchant. In fact, we returned to Old Town Oil to get gifts for our friends back home (the coupons in the tour guide are a great incentive to shop).... More

Bucktown & Wicker Park Tour With 3 mums and 5 teenage girls, it's not always easy to find an activity that will keep everyone amused and interested but this really hits the mark. We have done other food tours in New York so expectations were high and this did not disappoint. The first benefit is that this tour takes you... More

We lived in the Chicago suburbs for ten years and regularly visited the city but this tour took us to parts of the city we had never been to. Our guide Nichole was a wealth of knowledge about the sights and history on the walking tour and we thought the walk and information was a key component of the tour.... More

Excellent! This is my second tour with Chicago Food Planet. It was every bit as good as the Old Town/Gold Coast tour. Kent was our tour guide - he's absolutely wonderful.
