My husband and I recently visited Chicago and took the Flavours of Chicago tour. We weren't sure what to expect, but loved the idea of trying new foods and walking as well. Most of the foodie tours we have taken in other cities were on a small tour bus. This way, we saw the city, learned about the neighbourhoods, tried... More

We did this on a whim and we were so glad we did! Annalynn, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and showed us the city in a fun, new way. Not only was the tour amazing, but she provided us with recommendations for other things to try and all of her ideas were perfect for us! We had a blast. The... More

John led our tour, he clearly knows the area very well, we loved to detour into the water pumping station, but the one to the italian themed shop/centre was a waste of time. Food on the tour is a real mixture, which is good but have to say that its not a format of food tour I would go with... More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry you did not thoroughly enjoy your tour. The "Italian-themed shop/centre" is a new marketplace called "Eataly". Because of its uniqueness and extreme popularity, we point it out to familiarize you with it. Because Chicago history is an important element in our tours, your tour guide thought you would enjoy it.

The Tastebud Tours we took this past weekend was lots of fun and full of great Chicago food. Not only did we get to visit places I have not visited and eat food I haven't eaten before, but we learned about Chicago's rich history as we walked and ate. Annalynn was a FABULOUS guide!

We had an amazing time touring Chicago (Flavors of Chicago Tour) with Johnson! He was knowledgeable about the city's history and it's food too! The selections for places to eat were prefect- Chicago pizza, hot dog, brownie, etc… more than just lunch- we were stuffed!!! DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR!!!

I've taken the Tastebud Tours *Taste Chicago* tour a while back, so when in Chicago again, I thought I would try the *Flavors of Chicago* tour put on by the same company. I signed up on-line and my confirmation came back saying I didn't need to bring any paperwork. So I didn't. Well, that was a miss-step as I didn't... More

I have been on several food tours in other cities and always enjoy them. While in Chicago, I chose Tastebud Tours' "Taste Chicago Tour" based on their many 5-star reviews. Tastebud Tours definitely lived up to their reputation, and my husband and I really enjoyed our tour. What I personally liked was that our tour guide took time to explain... More

Our tour guide Anna Lynn was dynamic, organized, and knowledgeable. The stops on the Flavors of Chicago tour really have a sense of the city and the walking to us past sights that we probably wouldn't have found on our own, since we were staying in another area of the city. Week definitely look up tastebud tires when I visit... More

TOUR GUIDE: Our guide, Johnson, was very good. Very knowledgeable, personable, engaging. Concerned and observant about everyone's safety and comfort. Walking pace was just right. TOUR: The tour was.....ok. It was as much a sightseeing tour as a food tour. We learned some interesting things and saw some things you would probably miss without a guide. However the food part...

We enjoyed our tour with Anna Lynn. Scheduled so you won't need lunch, we had plenty of tastes mixed with a little history and culture. Our stops were Pizano's Pizza, Palmer Hotel, AmericasDog, Sugar Bliss, Fannie Mae's and the Berghoff. Enjoyed the stop at the Route 66 sign, Millenium Park, The Bean, Art Institute for the Tiffany ceiling. A great... More
