Anna Lynn, our guide, was lovely and had great knowledge of the places we visited as well as the sights along the way. The food was delicious and very filling,... More

We took the amazing 1893 World's Fair tour with Bertha Palmer, who was awesome as she shared a wealth of knowledge about fair history & tidbits in a fun & interesting way. The view from the patio at our first stop was worth the price of a ticket in and of itself! The food selections and historic places we visited... More

You will leave this tour full. Johnson was our tour guide and he was very informative and friendly. 5 stops and about a 2 1/2 hour tour made it feel just right. The pizza, beef sandwich, cupcakes, chocolate, bratwurst were all great. You will be on your feet a lot as half the stops are real small without any seating... More

We had a great time! Anna Lynn was our guide and she made us comfortable from the very first bite (of pizza). Our tour included pizza, hot dogs, burgers, cupcakes and candy. It was all amazing. We also went into the Drake Hotel and stopped many times along the tour to learn tidbits about Chicago's great history. Highly recommend this... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. We are not tour group people but we joined this tour because we received a gift certificate from our son. We really enjoyed the variety of restaurants and shops and it was interesting to learn about the Old Town. Johnson did a great job of showing us around.

Had a great time with this historic gold coast and old town food tour. Johnson was our tour guide, and the food and places shown were excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to try out some good food, and learn a little bit about the area.
