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.

Never been on a food tour before, but this was very good. Food was yummy and you get enough that you will not be hungry. Information from Victoria was excellent. Find some hidden gems. Will definitely consider food tours when I travel again.

The Tastebud tour was a wonderful experience. My Daughter and I decided to do this for my 50th birthday. It was a great choice. We had a opportunity to experience Chicago in a different way than we had before. Our tour guide, AnaLynn, was excellent. She was friendly, down to earth, inviting, and knowledgeable. She made the tour fun. Also,... More

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the wonderful Chicago neighborhood food tours. The servings are plenty (go hungry!) the tales of neighborhood changes and locations are fascinating and it is always fun to meet new fellow touring types. I think the food tours are also a great way to determine which neighborhoods you might want to... More

She was the perfect balance of information about the city buildings, history, places to see and where else to eat. Also, she gave us enough time to hang... More

This tour is very tasty and informative. Annalyn, our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Chicago and answered our questions. She was very friendly and fun. The tour is a great overview of what Chicago has to offer. We enjoyed being able to walk between food tastings. We left very full and happy.

Our tour guide, Keith, lived in Chicago his entire life and we learned about the history of Chicago while enjoying pizza, dogs, brownies, chocolates and 1/2 a cheeseburger. He also intertwined his own personal history as we walked along the streets of Chicago. I would highly recommend this tour.
