Each time we go to Chicago we go on the Tastebud Food Tour. And each time we do we bring someone new to experience it with us and our guests have always enjoyed the food tour as well. It never gets old because every tour guide we have had we always learn something new about Chicago or other places to... More

My husband and I did the Flavors of Chicago Tour in the Magnificent Mile area of Chicago. The food was great at 5 of the 6 stops. The one mediocre stop was The Billy Goat Tavern. In fairness, I think that spot is on the tour more for its history than the quality of its food. Our tour guide was... More

We had a delightful experience on the Flavors of Chicago food tour! Our tour guide, John, was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the history of Chicago food. Since the tour was about three hours long, it was very nice to be able to sit down and relax for a little bit at each restaurant. Although it wasn't part of the... More

This definitely was the flavors of Chicago, but I felt like it was for those looking for volume vs. quality. The pizza we started with was very good. The second stop was a brownie that I felt like we could get anywhere...why not stop at a small neighborhood, ethnic bakery? We also had an entire Chicago style hot dog, Cajun... More

Annalynn and Lynn, the owner, are a treat themselves as tour guides. Very knowlegable about the city and where the best places are to eat, even if they aren't on their tour. Enjoyed them and the rest of our group. Definately need to check them out!

Lyn (the owner!) was a great guide. We were on the Taste of Chicago tour. Our group (4 people of the 15) heard a lot of interesting info while walking around and while eating. There was plenty of food - a pizza slice, a hot dog, a brownie, a mini cupcake, half a brat with kraut and potato salad garnish... More

My wife and I joined some friends for the Taste tour. Our tour guide was excellent and she was a pleasing combination of informative and ensuring we were all having an enjoyable tour. My only complaint was that I would have liked more of the old spots in Chicago in lieu of a couple of the newer restaurants, such as... More

What a fun and tasty way to experience the city! The 4 hours in the company of a group of 12 with owner and founder of Tastebud tours; Lynn, as our guide was some of the best for our trip to America.

We took this tour in June while visiting Chicago for our first time. Based on the reviews we chose Tastebud Tours of Chicago and were not disappointed. We met very close to the property we were staying at in the Gold Coast/Near North area which was very convenient. I believe they have a couple locations. The owner came out and... More
