Great food and tour
Jul 2021
This was an great tour. Dave did a great job as the guide. So much history in the individual neighborhoods of Chicago. And the food was amazing. Going to the "Time Out" food plaza was a great experience, one which we will do again on our next trip.

A great tour of the West Loop
Jul 2021
This was a great experience. We had a fun group and got to try a lot of different food. Biggest surprise was the Roman style pizza. Never heard of it before and it was incredible. Dave was a great tour guide and he had lots on information about the food and the city.

Excellent Food Tour
Jul 2021
Great food tour with sampling of diverse restaurants. Our guide, David, was extremely knowledgeable about Chicago history, as well as the restaurant scene. My only regret is that we took this tour on our last day in Chicago. I would love to go back and explore some of the restaurants that he pointed out on our tour!

Totally Enjoyble West Loop Food Tour
Jun 2021 • Friends
The food tour on the west loop was amazing. David was our guide. He had so many interesting stories about Chicago from history and architecture to food and celebrities. David was so knowledgeable that we could have listened to him all day. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about the food and history in this unique part of Chicago.

We did the Gateway to the West Loop tour with Terry as our guide and he was fantastic! We did it on father's day as a family tour and Terry couldn't have done a better job. Food was 10/10 as well and we all learned something about the history of Chicago!
