    My tour head was super charismatic and fun. He knew lots about the history of Chicago and pointed out lots of fun facts on our walk. The food was good representation of Chicago to.

    My fiancé and I decided to try out the donut tour on our trip to Chicago. We had a blast and it was the highlight of our trip! Our tour guide, Nick, made sure everyone was comfortable and were able to participate. He shared great facts about the city and had light hearted jokes throughout the tour. The donut shops were spread out and required a bit of walking. At each spot we waited outdoors except for Stan’s. Stan’s has an indoor seating area and restrooms available. We had a group of about 20 people and it took about 2 hours. It was a great pace and not too long. We were able to try two types of donuts at each spot. Nick did a great job of giving us one yeast and one cake donut to try at each one. Out of the four spots, the Doughnut Vault was my personal favorite! We left the tour stuffed and excited to recommend it to our friends and family. We loved it!

    We took the Chinatown Food and Walking Tour with York yesterday. It was fantastic way to spend an afternoon/evening! York educated us about different cuisines found in different parts of China. We went to five different restaurants and tried dim sum, Szechwan chicken with red peppers, a Chinese sandwich (which was interesting since I don't usually correlate bread and the cumin spice with China, but York explained the Xi'an region had a strong middle eastern influence due to the Silk Road access), noodles, and a Chinese dessert. The food was all really fantastic!

    York also explained a lot about the Chinese immigration to the United States and their impact on the railroads, and some other interesting Chinese history regarding certain artwork and buildings during the tour. York did a fantastic job educating us, feeding us, and ensuring we were entertained with fascinating tidbits of Chinese history/culture and lots of "dad jokes" as we call them in my family (he had some ones that I am going to save, but I won't spoil the fun here)! He also was very cognizant of the different ages and fitness levels in our group. We had a woman who had some difficulty walking (perhaps due to a knee issue), and he made sure we never left anyone behind and noted all of the elevators whenever there were stairs involved.

    I would highly recommend this tour to any locals wanting a taste of what Chinatown has to offer, or to anyone entertaining guests in the area. It was a great way to spend time learning and meeting new people.

    What a great way to spend an afternoon! We had a few hours before our flight home, and this 2 hour walking tour was a perfect way to learn more about some otherwise overlooked buildings with interesting histories and beautiful interior and exteriors. Just be sure to wear comfortable shoes!

    An amazing collection. Joe was a terrific guide and his depth of knowledge enhanced the experience! Would highly recommend...but be forewarned...doing justice to this collection may take several visits.

    My family and I truly enjoyed this pizza tour. We have two young children and they enjoyed the pizza as well. I enjoyed hearing about the history of each of the 4 places we visited. John is a great tour guide and kept the the tour fun and interesting. The day after we ended up going to one of the pizza places we liked the best. I highly recommend this tour!

    I was only in town for 1 1/2 days and felt that we really did get our money's worth with Clinton as our guide. He was not only very personable but knew a lot of facts about the city that he loves. We covered a few of the foods that Chicago is well known for and finished it off with a sweet treat. As a senior citizen that is not used to walking a great distance, it is a lot of walking! However, I enjoyed myself tremendously and I am so glad we took this tour.

    Excellent tour of the house that explains why certain choices were made in its design. The extra $10 for the audio tour outside the house is NOT worth it; you’ll be fine with the $20 house tour.

    My husband and I enjoyed our 2.5 hour small group tour at the Art Institute of Chicago. Mandy, our tour guide has a wealth of information about art, artists, and history. She expresses herself clearly and demonstrates a love of the arts. She also, interestingly, let us know which artists aren’t her favorite and asks us the same. Mandy engaged us in activities that helped us get more out of the artwork, particularly with modern art. I would recommend this tour.

    What a great tour! John was a fabulous guide - humorous and knowledgable. I hadn't realised that we would actually go inside so many buildings, which was wonderful. The food was a surprise - I was sceptical at first, but now I'm a total convert. It's also so interesting to have the story behind the food explained - as John did. The walking also made you feel that you earned your treats. I can highly recommend this tour! Thanks John.
