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! 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.

Having taken the "other" tour company's Gold Coast, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Wicker Park tours, I was excited to see a different part of the city and learn some of the history. Our guide was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable in the history. Unlike the "other" tours, we were given plenty of time at each location, and could make purchases... More

My husband and I have been on food tours in several cities in the US and in Europe (DC, NY, Boston, Rome, Florence). The Taste Chicago tour was one of our favorite tours to date. Our guide, Johnson, was wonderful. He was welcoming, funny, and full of food knowledge and Chicago history. The food was amazing, as were the stories... More

Let me start by saying I'm not a fan of pizza. I know you may think I'm crazy but after I took the Tastebud Food Tour, I'm a huge fan of Chicago deep dish pizza!! This tour was amazing, informative and delicious. Our guide Johnson was so pleasant, funny and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about Chicago and food. If... More

This is a must do if you are visiting Chicago. In addition to great food along the way, our tour guide (John) gave an excellent overview of the history and cultural influences of Chicago. Will definitely recommend!

What a great day in Chicago. Our tour guide Keith told us so many interesting things about Chicago. (Being a Wisconsin group, we had to tell him about the Peshtigo fire on the same day as the Chicago fire). It was a wonderful day of seeing the sites and having delicious food at Pizano's Pizza, Downtown Dogs, Billy Goat Grill,... More
