I chose the Taste Chicago Tour because it was easy to get to downtown and the food options looked interesting. Well, I was not disappointed at all. I got to see and learn about lots of Chicago history, but even better, I got to taste some pretty amazing food.
The tour progressed at a good walking pace, and the eateries were pretty evenly spaced. So there was really no time to get too cold or get too tired. We had lots of opportunities to take pictures, to ask questions, and to leisurely relax and enjoy the food we received - we were never rushed. We really covered a lot in just 3 hours.
The tour guide was friendly, and the the variety of attractions we saw from the outside (or actually went into) was excellent. But hands down, the food was the best - it was amazing. And the portions were generous. The pizza at Pizano's was fantastic - the best deep dish pizza out of the 3 that I tried while in Chicago. We got a full sized hot dog - again even better than the other Chicago dogs I had had. And at Berghoff's I was pleasantly surprised by the best sauerkraut I've ever tasted. The sweet treats were so good at Sugar Bliss and Fannie May that I even bought some to bring back home with me as gifts.
I will be in Chicago again in a few months and am looking forward to taking one of the other Tastebud Tours. They seem to choose eateries that are both interesting and delicious.

We really liked the tour! It's a great value! We did the Taste Tour and we really enjoyed the food and the guide brought us to places we would never had gone alone. We were on a tight budget and we still though it's a worth 45$ per person. Our guide was very friendly and the portion big enough. Walking between the different restaurant or shop help us digest are we were thankful! The pizza is amazing and I will dream of these cupcakes for a long time!

My two daughters and I totally enjoyed your tastebud tours of Chicago and rank it at the top of food tours. We have traveled worldwide and this tour was perfect. Our guide, Annalynn (I hope I have her name right) made us feel like we were hanging out with a new friend in Chicago. She shared little bits of Chicago factoids which made the tour more interesting. The group was the perfect size and the pace of the day was perfect. We ate at different places that we never would have experienced had we not been on the tour. I have to say- the hotdog is amazing! When you get it- eat it like a true native Chicagoian- don't change a thing. Thank you very much for making our holiday trip to your town a special memory. We wish you much success in your expansion to other cities.

Andrew was our tour guide. Scrumptious food, loved the candy, amazing pizza. The tour guide knew the city food spots thoroughly and we got great suggestions from him as well. Definitely worth the price spent. Be prepared for a bit of walking. Having a brownie at the bean was pretty cool.

Although at times the walking pace was a bit quick this tour was great and my young adult daughters loved it. The food is more than plenty (we were all stuffed). Our guide was very informative and I would definately take another on my next trip to Chicago. More than worth the money!!
