“A dessert tour with views”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

A great way to pass the afternoon, and to get to know the city a bit better - even if you're a local.
Three hours for five stops allowed the tour to progress at a liesurely pace (about half an hour at each stop), which is fantastic considering how much of each dessert there was! There was also enough time to explore some of the landmark buildings the tour visited, including fantastic views from above Michigan Ave. Our tour guide Amber not only did a great job providing information about the food and venue at each stop, but also added knowledgable pieces as we walked from stop to stop, both about the architecture as well as other notable restaraunts in the city.

“A Great Expereice and A Fun Tour”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

I enjoyed the dessert tour very much. This dessert tour was a great experence and took me to some great restaurants in Chicago that I have never been to before. The tour was a nice walk around the famous "magnificent mile" in Chicago. We had chance to taste some delicious desserts such as cookies, brownies, carrot cake, and ice cream. Our tour guide Amber was very knowledgeable about the foods and the city of Chicago in general. In addition to introducing the restaurants and foods to us, she also gave us some interesting architectural and historical information around the "magnificent mile" area. This was really a fun tour!

“more then a desert tour”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Excellent tour you can enjoy for an afternoon after lunch. We had a chance to site down at 5 different restaurants to enjoy their best desert. Not only the deserts were so tasty, i also learned many information from my tour guide, Amber Gibson, she explained to us the history of the Drake hotel's brownie, the story of the carrot cake. She also showed us tourist attractions in the buildings that we went to.

i never knew that Prince Diana visited Chicago only once in 1996 and stayed in the Drake hotel. i never knew that the famous Lawry's Prime Rib is linked to the famous Lawry spice company. We got a chance to visit Lawry's family dinning room.

The tour exceeded my expectations. i thought we just taste deserts, but the stories of the food and the stories of the places we visit, adds tremendous fun and experience to the tour. Thank you Amber for the fun afternoon. I will certain bring more friends to join the desert tour and other tours that your company organized.

“Awesome variety, along with a peek into some swanky venues”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I had a lot of fun on this tour! It takes place mostly along the Gold Coast and Streeterville neighborhoods of Chicago, so the entire tour took place in and around some of the most beautiful buildings in the city.

On the tour, we got to try everything from brownies to carrot cake to my favorite - the coconut meringue cookie. There was something for everyone! We also wandered through some of the fanciest hotels in Chicago, with knowledgeable commentary from our tour guide. From the food to the sightseeing, everything was very organized and well planned out.

“A sweet ride!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is a great tour for Chicago natives, visitors, and everything in between. I've often found myself sticking to a set of "safe restaurants" in Chicago, and this tour was a great way to break free from my routine. Each stop on the tour greeted us with delectable treats (the carrot cake, expresso brownie, and coconut meringue cookie were my favorites) and a wonderful atmosphere. Our tour guide was Amber, a very knowledgeable young woman who not only gave us a ton of insight into each destination while sprinkling in historical quirks about Chicago, but made sure that everyone on the tour was comfortable and having a great time. All in all, a top-notch experience!
