Molly was a great guide and did well managing the time outside (members of the group were not acclimated to the cold/snow in Chicago). I learned quite a bit about the city and was able to sample food from places I would have otherwise not thought to get to.

Jock is a very fun guide with a great sense of humor. We were running late and he waited for me and my son very patiently. We walked all over Wicker Park and I learned alt of the history of the area and he pointed out places that I might of missed going there on my own. Some of the... More

Jock was our guide and he was great! Very informative and passionate about the Chicago. The food was delicious and it was a nice mix of places where you stand outside vs seated inside, which was nice on a cold day in November!

Our guide Jock both entertained and informed us, and the food stops were well chosen and tasty. The neighborhood has both history and lots of food hot spots.

The tour was great but it was too long (3 hrs) to only have 5 food stops. I wish it had more food stops or condense it down to 2 hrs.

My husband and I did the River North tour. We are both very familiar with Chicago but wanted to try some food outside of our usual eating spots. Jock was a good tour guide. He knew all about the food and the history of the city in the areas we visited. I've always wanted to try Lou Malnati's because everyone... More

Jodi led our tour and she provided just the right amount of personal commentary, historical facts and color to make our walk super interesting. The food flavors were varied and we found the amounts to be just right. Highly recommend.

Definitely worth doing with a Groupon. Just enough food that you are full but not uncomfortable. Nice way to sample some new places that now you are familiar with where they are and the neighborhood to go back on your own and sample more of their menus.
