I loved this tour. Sadie was AMAZING. The most surprising aspect of this tour, I was not stuffed at the end. This tour was the perfect combination history, food and architure. Sadie is knowledgeable, easy going, amicable and down to earth. I wish she could have been our tour guide the entire vacation. The next time I come to Chicago... More

We took the Old Town/Gold Coast tour, and our guide was Amber. She is knowledgeable and ENERGETIC!! She incorporates her substantial familiarity with Chicago architecture into her narrative. It was refreshing and wonderful. Well worth the ticket price and I would highly recommend.

Had a great time with Christina, our guide, who was full of information on the neighborhoods and our food destinations! Loved hearing the history of the area and the various stories of the houses. Can't believe we ate it all but, man, it was all so good. Can't wait to come back and try one of the other neighborhoods! Great... More

Angie was our guide and she was literally the nicest person ever, without being overly enthusiastic or annoying. I highly recommend this food tour - you get to go to Berco's Popcorn, Vosge's Haus de Chocolat, Chicago Bagel Authority, Bacino's... More

Chris lead us on a great tour. Even though I'm a lifelong Chicago resident, I learned a lot and the food samplings were great. Definitely worth the cost.

My tour with Chicago Food Planet was simply outstanding! The guide was entertaining and well versed on the awesome food and sights. As a native Chicagoan, I truly appreciated an opportunity to experience my home town through another lense after being a resident of Colorado for the past 37 years. I highly recommend Chicago Food Planet Tours as a "Must... More
