The Secret Food Tour is worth every penny. Melissa is so knowledgable about Chicago and took us to some places I would have never found on my own. Highly Recommended!

We did the Chicago Loop Secret Food Tour with Melissa. Melissa is a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about food, architecture, and Chicago's history. The weather was less than perfect, but we still had a wonderful time. I'd highly recommend it.
