Gabe was the best tour guide ever! Not only was he personable but he knows Chicago and obviously enjoys sharing his wealth of information. I did enjoy the choices in food and beer to get a sense of what the city is known for. I highly recommend this tour.

Loved the entire experience. Fun walk with awesome overview of Chicago sites, buildings (especially appreciate no reference to that idiot Trump when passing the building with his name on it) architecture, jokes, and FOOD! Super fun 3 hrs. Chicago pizza was fabulous at Giordanos, doughnuts were delicious, and oh my goodness, the Italian beef sandwich at Bongiorno’s was over the top perfect. Only complaint was the Chicago dog down in the walkway was very unimpressive. Had been obviously made and wrapped up much in advance of our arrival. Trip could also provide one bottle of water for everyone at beginning of tour. 🤓😀. Thank you.

icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Hi there, we are sorry that the tour was not up to yours or our expectations. We have since resolved the food vendor situation that was causing some mixed reviews and, after a brief hiatus, the food quality is back up to our 5 star standards. It's unfortunate that the pandemic has wreaked havoc on some of the local ma and pa restaurants we love to support. Future guests should also note we are sampling Chicago style pizza, hot dogs, Italian beef and desserts on this tour. We visit spots that are local favorites and this tour is a great way to see and taste the best of Chicago attractions and food.
