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.
