Suitable for all age groups and fitness levels, each walking food experience provides a non-touristy, local perspective so you feel like a native Chicagoan. These guided Food Tours & Experiences include mouth-watering food samples, enough for a large lunch or dinner, from unique specialty food stores, local restaurants and ethnic eateries while providing a detailed insiders view of Chicago's most famous communities- their rich histories, treasured architecture, dazzling entertainment offerings and restaurant recommendations. Tours run 7 days a week between March and November and Thursday-Sunday during winter months (November to March). The earliest tour departure leaves at 11am and depending on the experience, will last between 2-3 hours. Tickets start at $35 adult for youth tickets and $42 for adult tickets.

This was an excellent tour. It was informative and delicious. Our guide Lisa did a great job of explaining how each restaurant fit into the culture of the area, and the story of Chicago. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Chicago and I will be sure to try the other tours on my next visit.

Sorry, I cannot remember the name of the fantastic tour guide we had! This was the most amazing tour, very informative in every way. Guide had a fabulous knowledge of food and architecture. I will definitely be recommending that our friends, who are visiting Chicago in July, come on this tour. Thank you for a fantastic day. PS Dont eat too much before you do this tour as we were unable to finish the food which we sampled, all of which was of great quality.

My husband and I went on the Wicker Park Bucktown food tour and had a blast! The food was delicious and our tour guide Lisa was spectacular! Not only did she take us around the restaurants she took the time to sow us around the neighboorhood and gave us an architectural and historical tour of the area! The tour took about three hours and was amazing! I would definitely do it again! Fun way to spend the afternoon :)

This is among the best tours I have been on. I believe my tour guide was called Jess. She was lovely and very knowledgeable. She works close to food and it showed. Her knowledge of Chicago was fantastic and as no one was in a rush she took us on a slightly longer tour an showed us more of the sights. If I had more time in Chicago I would have done more of their tours: they know their stuff.
