Try six of the Windy City’s quintessential staples from local restaurants and specialty food shops like Pizano’s Pizza and the Berghoff, the oldest family run-establishment in Chicago. Taste local favorites including deep-dish pizza,  Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich and chocolates from Fannie May, just to name a few. Along the way, see and learn about the historical, cultural and architectural components that make up this legendary town.
What to Expect
Get ready to take a stroll and taste some of the best foods Chicago’s downtown has to offer! The Fabulous Quintessential Culinary Tour of Chicago explores Chicago’s central business district, the Loop, home to many of Chicago’s famous buildings, restaurants, and Millennium Park.
You’ll enjoy 6 food tasting stops (enough for lunch) all of which are included in the ticket price. Your walking adventure will visit (subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances):

• The Berghoff is oldest family run-establishment in Chicago. Opening in 1898, it now serves Chicagoans, ‘tradition with a twist’, as well as classic German favorites and their own line of beers. Special Note: From November 22 until January 1, the Berghoff will be replaced with the Billy Goat TaverN
• Chicago Kernel - Chicago Style Popcorn that makes your stomach growl from just the smell! You might not leave with JUST your Tastebud sample!
• Taste a classic Italian beef sandwich at Al’s Beef, who’ve been making these famous Chicago sandwiches since 1938.
• Fannie May Chocolates has been serving Chicagoans decadent chocolates since 1920.
• Visit the Chicago Cultural Center, home to the world’s largest Tiffany glass ceiling. (Note: Chicago Cultural Center is closed for some special occasions and most holidays).

Depends on the child's age. There's a lot of walking around through traffic - If it was me, I wouldn't take a kid under 14 - they might get bored. The food was appropriate. Now - if it was a serious foodie kid - go for it.
