In short, fantastic food in some really iconic places that show a great breadth of Chicago food. The guide, Annalynn, was absolutely fantastic! She knew so much of not only the food but the history of Chicago and great places to go after. Couldn't offer a higher recommendation, especially for the price!

My friends and I decided to book a food tour because it sounded like a fun idea that took up a good chunk of food, was reasonably priced, and would also cover the cost of a meal. What we received was the best bang for my buck I've ever received. We booked the Taste of Chicago food tour that included... More

Tired of museums and shopping? Book a tour with Tastebud Tours and you'll be satisfied if you're a foodie, a history buff, an architecture fan, or none of the above! Annalynne was a fabulous guide and we sampled pizza, brownies, Italian beef, bratwurst and sauerkraut, coffee, candy and cake pops. The savory-sweet recipe left everyone happy. I've been on food...
