“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

We have visited Chicago before - have done the Architectural Tours, etc. Wanted to do something different. Based on TripAdvisor reviews, signed up for the Tastebud Tours. What fun!!! Despite the frigid temps, the group of 8 was friendly and fun. We had Tiffany as our tour guide (good luck with the wedding plans, Tiffany!) - she was terrific. And we were delighted to have owner, Lynn Jaynes, along for the tour. The two of them provided fun stories along the way about Chicago history, life and FOOD. Nice mix of things. Highly recommend! Thanks Lynn and Tiffany!

My family and I visited Chicago this past weekend and I happened to come across this website. It was an awesome way to spend 3 hours walking around the city without getting lost! We visited well known sights and learned many history facts along with eating food! It was a great variety and great food! This let us visit sights and eat at the same time. It was the best part of our day and we loved out guide Annalynn! She was so upbeat and funny which made this tour even better. I would definately recommend this to anyone at any age!

“If you want to really taste and see Chicago, go on this tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

WOW. With everything we did in Chicago, this tour was the highlight. We did the Taste Chicago tour and Annalynn was our hostess. She was awesome! She loves Chicago and it's contagious. Every place she took us and while we walked in the city, she told us interesting and fun facts. She gave us time to enjoy the food and the scenery. And, oh the food! It will be hard to eat pizza again after having real pizza at Pizano. I've never had pizza like that before! Then the Chicago hot dog! It's hard to describe because it is nothing like eating a usual hot dog. It touches every taste bud in your mouth. The cheeseburger at Billy Goat tavern is delicious and it was the perfect place to end the tour. We stayed there a while and enjoyed the atmosphere. The desserts - cupcake, brownie and candy added the perfect touch to the main food. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. I am going back with one of my daughters that couldn't come and first on my agenda is to take her on the tour. I'll try the Flavors of Chicago so I can try more foods and learn more about Chicago. I'm going to request Annalynn because of the way her enthusiasm and knowledge made me love Chicago too. Thank you! (I was with an older friend and college aged children, and they felt the same way)

I've been on two of the tours so far and they are worth every penny. Great food, great history, and great tour guides. Highly recommend for a family or friend outing. Two thumbs up! Can't wait to try the others as well!
