Description: Simply the Best Chicago Food Tour! Tastebud Tours is the Chicago Food Tour...
Simply the Best Chicago Food Tour! Tastebud Tours is the Chicago Food Tour everyone is talking about! We've been selected as the "Editors Choice" and "The Best Chicago Food Tour" by The Chicago Traveler in addition to be featured on NBC News, ABC's 190 North, USA Today, WGN and WTTW. As if that's not enough, we are proud to say that we've been awarded the Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor for the last 6 years! Now that's tasty! Unlike other Chicago Food Tours, Tastebud Food Tours is a progressive meal, not a Tasting Tour. You can Shop on all Tastebud Tours. Tastebud Food Tours is the only Chicago Food Tour to offer all the iconic Chicago Foods! Tastebud Food Tours offers delicious food tours through Chicago's historic neighborhoods. Each small group tour serves up Chicago's quintessential cuisine while visiting different specialty food shops and highly rated Chicago restaurants. The Taste Tour includes stops located in the Chicago Loop including Millennium Park and the Cultural Center. The Flavors Tour runs through the beautiful Gold Coast neighborhood including the famous Magnificent Mile. Visit one of Chicago's famous neighborhoods and eat your way through Old Town. Step back in time and enjoy theater on the streets with The 1893 World's Fair Food Tour. Running tighter on time but would still like to get a taste of Chicago? We'd love to have you join us on our shorter Underground Tour. Food varies depending on which tour you'd like to join but here's just a nibble of our offerings: Chicago Style Hot Dog, Pizano's famous Deep Dish Pizza, #1 Al's Italian Beef sandwich, the world famous Billy Goat Tavern (Cheezeborger, Cheezeborger, Cheezeborger!!), Chicago's oldest chocolate shop and the oldest restaurant in Chicago, The Berghoff. If you'd like to enjoy some famous tastes of Chicago, Tastebud Food Tours is your ticket! Make sure to book your tickets early as we sell out often! Tours operate year round, Monday through Sunday with the exception of important holidays. Tours range from 2-3 hours and varies between $25 - $69 depending on the tour. Enough food is served on each tour to be considered a nice meal. Book online at the Tastebud Tour website! Come Hungry!

Chicago's tour was full of very informative details regarding history, architecture and great city views. We had deep dish pizza, Italian beef, dessert surprises and bratwurst. Pizza and dessert were my favorites. My husband liked the... More

I went on the Taste Chicago tour with Anna-Lyn and it was really fun! She brought us to great restaurants and shops to have various, delicious tastings. We could also buy some more of the food we tasted, discounted thanks to her! She also had us visit a few Chicago landmarks and provided interesting information about them. Come hungry and... More

Keith was a FABULOUS tour guide! He was so knowledgeable about the city of Chicago. Also, he was EXTREMELY attentive to the needs of those on the tour. Pizza, chocolate, brownie, cheeseburger, Chicago hotdog....all the best. You will leave full and happy.

Just finished the tour and quite simply, it was the best food tour I've been on. My wife took me in this tour to celebrate my 40th birthday and Tiffany and Lynn are two of the most hospitable people I've met in this industry. I would recommend this to anyone. Just remember to come hungry! Great value! A

We took the 1893 World's Fair Food Tour because we both had read "Devil in the White City" and wanted to explore more of this historic event. Our meeting place at the Cliff Divers Club was amazing and it only got better from there. Our period guide "Bertha" was a delightful character representing a wealthy socialite of the era who...

Very knowledgeable guide and worth the money. We were able to get to eat our way through getting to know the city. Our guide also gave us other recommendations on where to eat during our stay and other things to do which was nice being our first time visiting Chicago.

The tour was fantastic. My guide was very knowledgeable of the restaurants and landmarks on the tour. However, the food is average at best. Even our guide told us that the food on this tour is not the best food in Chicago. That was a little disappointing because I was expecting a food tour of one of the best food... More

We did the Flavor of Chicago tour today and had an amazing time. The food was delicious and our guide Johnson was very knowledgable about not only the food but the city as well. We never felt rushed at any of the stops nor did it feel like we were waiting around for anything. We would highly recommend this tour!

My wife and I recently travelled to Chicago for a summer trip. I booked the tastebuds tour ahead of time. Booking was easy and quick. We met our tour guide, Johnson, at the first stop and learned that there were only two other couples booked for this date. Johnson was friendly and knowledgable and kept the tour and conversation going... More

We took the taste of Chicago tour, with a great sampling of chicago fare. Our guide was amazing, fun, full of knowledge and facts. All of the stops provided delicious food, the only disappointment was Sugar Bliss with one little cupcake to sample and a bit on the dry side for my liking. Fannie May was the most generous with...
