“Hidden Gem even for City Residents”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I've lived in the city for 5 months now and in a short 3 hour tour I learned more about the city, its history, and the food it has to offer than I could have ever imagined. Each of the food stops provided a strong sampling of a famous dish. Each stop also provided us with a seat and drink unlike other tours I have been on. After taking the Flavors tour I am ready to book another one with Tastebuds ASAP! A definite must do if you are visiting the city or resident looking to learn more about this amazing city!

“Great tour!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Our guide Mimi gave us a great tour of Chicago with all the history and interesting facts! The sampling of a great variety of Chicago foods was great, too! This was not our first trip to Chicago but we enjoyed the tour so much, and so did our daughter, who actually lives in Chicago!!!
Take the tour, you will enjoy it all!

“much more than a food tour”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Took the "Flavors" tour, this is one of several this company operates in Chicago. Began at Pizano's Pizza, then five other stops, at each stop Annalynn gave us so much history of the restaurant, the building and the area. All of food was nice portions and so unique. We visited places I would have never found on my own. Highly recommend this tour, and Annalynn.
