Downtown Chi-Town in a Day--- What a Way!
Oct 2021
This tour reflects 5 (five) stars for a reason and is also the reason I booked it! I very rarely rate at a 5 "star" so don’t let my 4 (four) stars fool you, this was a very good tour and I HIGHLY recommend it for first-time visitors or even locals who want to learn a little bit more about this amazing city.

Definitely a walking tour, I clocked in about 10,000 steps for the day on this tour, although people in my group said they clocked in about 7,000--- so a tour and a workout is a bonus! Especially since you will be tasting some popcorn, chocolates, hot dogs, beef sandwiches and the famous Chicago Deep Dish Pizza! Dave was very informative and always tried to answer everyone’s questions. If it wasn’t for this tour, I wouldn’t have discovered so many things about Chicago!

I liked the intimate feel of the group (there was about 8 of us), although most were coupled up and I was going at it solo. Despite that, Dave was able to get the group introductions in and I was able to speak with some of the other guests. He really cares about the people he is touring and it shows.

If I had to provide any positive feedback to improve the tour, it would be that the popcorn and chocolates should be saved for dessert (lol). Also, I was really excited about taking the water taxi, which we did not but the metro was a nice experience.

I highly recommend this tour. Please remember to bring some cash for tipping.

Long weekend get away
Dave our tour guide was super nice and personable. We loved that! What we didn’t love was that we didn’t feel like we saw that many things. Basically went to three restaurants, rode the subway and went to Millennium Park. Besides that, we didn’t see all that much!

Deeper than the Deep Dish Pizza!
My wife and I always make a point of doing walking (food) tours whenever we travel. This tour with Dave was fantastic! As a local, he provided an un scripted narrative of Chicago based on his knowledge and personal experience.

Absolutely loved it!

Enjoying Second City
Dave was excellent in providing a personable and unscripted view of Chicago’s history including architecture, development, arts, ethnicity, and the all important food & drink. Enjoyed the small group and interspersed treats along the way. Time just flew!

Amazing Experience!
Aug 2021 • Family
My teenage daughter and I went on this tour while visiting Chicago for the first time in August. The tour in itself was awesome and the small amount of tourists in the group made the tour very personal! Our tour guide Kelly was the BEST! She was a wealth of knowledge, was fun, energetic, kind, made sure everyone was included & comfortable & you could definitely tell she loves this City! We ate amazing food, learned a TON & saw beautiful architecture! It was a great day & we highly recommend this tour!
Thank you Kelly for an amazing first experience in your beautiful City!

Fun, educational and delicious!
Sep 2021
Our tour guide Kelly led an amazing and comprehensive tour of the city of Chicago! We got to taste a number of different foods and they were all delicious. Kelly incorporated so many elements of the history of Chicago into the tour and we finished the tour feeling much more connected with the city of Chicago as a result. Kelly was also very accommodating of everyone's dietary restrictions/preferences. We walked a long way on the tour so be prepared with good walking shoes to pair with a big appetite. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone visiting Chicago!

We had a weekend trip to Chicago and wanted to capture as much of a Chicago experience as we could and this tour did not disappoint. Dave our tour guide made the day!!! He was personable, knowledgeable, and incredibly passionate about Chicago. He made sure the group saw aspects of Chicago that make it such a great city to visit. Dave answered as many questions as tour guests had from a standpoint that you knew he was all in on Chicago history. The food aspects were timely, and more importantly delicious. The perfect Chicago style hot dog, the Italian beef sandwich and deep dish pizza were outstanding. The five hour tour length was perfect.
