We had a short trip in Chicago so I jumped online to see how best to use our time. We were a group of four who wanted a taste of the local cuisine and these tours sounded like a great way to do this. We did the Gold Coast/Old Town tour and loved all of it. We had a good... More

Great tour and our guide was tremendous. Great way to see the area, the architecture, the parks and of course... the food. The ice cream experience. I will not spill the beans but you must take the tour to find out about this unique process. Some of the food stops included local & organic foods. Highly recommend this tour.

This is the second Chicago Food Planet tour I have taken (previous one was Gold Coast/River North). I wold highly recommend any of the tours to visitors and locals alike. Guides are very knowledgeable, food is excellent and it's a great way to learn about neighborhoods outside the tourist-ridden Mag mile.

We took the Gold Coast/Old Town tour, and it did not disappoint. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We particularly loved that the company focuses on locally owned & operated businesses when developing their tours.

My best friend from St. Louis and I did the Gold Coast and Old Town tour on July 26, 2014. Both of us had been on other food tours. Both of us were impressed! I just moved to the area in February and it was great to see a different side of Chicago. Our guide Nicole, was professional, and very... More

I have now been on the Bucktown/Wicker Park, Chinatown, and most recently the Lincoln Park tour. Each of them has been a fantastic way to see the city I call home and has introduced me to the history, fun facts, and most importantly the food of areas I probably would have never visited without these tours. I can hardly wait... More

My boyfriend and I took the Gold Coast/East Town over the weekend and it was incredible! The food was delicious and varied, and the bite-sized history lessons from our tour guide were amazing too!

Lisa, a very enthusiastic, well versed, and knowledgable guide met 12 of us at a restaurant. We proceeded to have Dim Sum as our first taste. We then experienced a Buddhist Temple and a wonderful tea shoppe that served us Bubble Tea. As we strolled through the busy streets of shops, neighborhoods, and a park along the river, we learned...

Great way to see sights and get a belly full along the way. Something for everyone. We did the Gold Coast tour with Amber and the mix of restaurants/shops was perfect. We felt welcomed at every location. This was my 4th tour! I have taken my friends, my husband, my son & his girlfriend and my in laws!

This tour was awesome - it had a food from all the major food groups: Pizza, cupcakes, popcorn, donuts, bagels, and chocolate. :) All the stops were awesome and it was a charming neighborhood to walk through. Christina was a great guide - she had answers for any questions we threw her way. We had a good group and the... More
