We went on the Bucktown & Wicker Park food tour on Friday Sept 26, 2014. The weather was terrific. Our tour guide Kristina was fun and well-informed.

Enjoyed spending a couple of hours walking and visiting some of the local shops. The tour guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. Overall I would give a rating of 5 except for the price which was too high for what you got.

My husband and I took the Gold Coast and Old Town tour and we loved the experience. Our excellent tour guide, Kristen, was both informative and fun and the restaurants and food shops visited offered delicious samples. We have been in Chicago many times, but this tour introduced us to neighborhoods off the beaten path. Highly recommended.

I took the tour with Sadie (she was very positive, always smiling, very informative throughout). I was travelling alone and was made feel welcome and with a small group of 7 we quickly interacted and got to know each other better. I don't think I would have been so enthusiastic if the weather were bad, so fortunately it was sunny!!!... More

We have attended two food tours. Last Saturday we went on the buck town wicker park tour. Kent was a wonderful guide - very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. My favorite two stops were George's hot dogs and hot chocolate. A highlight was going thru neighborhoods and seeing where the speak easy was (didn't know they still existed)
