    If you are looking for some Chicago history along with some good Chicago food, this is a recommended tour. You get a little taste of pizza, beef sandwiches, hot dogs and dessert (brownie/popcorn). Plus, you get some of the history behind how this was developed. You also get to see some great sites along the way in this 3-hour walking tour. The tour guide we had, Janine, was great!

    I was really impressed by the tour. Make sure to come on an EMPTY stomach because you will eat a lot. We were given a full slice of deep dish pizza, half a Italian bee sandwich with chips, A full Chicago hotdog, A brownie, and popcorn, and water with every meal. Our tour guide Julia was amazing. She was knowledgeable about the city, foods, and had a charismatic personality. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it.

    Although it was a miserably rainy day in Chicago, Anna made most of the day with her historical information and incite. She was informative and funny. Anna also let us know where we were going next in an attempt to keep us a little bit dryer when we could find shelter. I learned a lot about this city and the food was good too.
