Great tour
, Mar 2020
Elizabeth did a great job safely conducting an informational and tasty tour of some great Chicago eateries!
, Mar 2020
Elizabeth was a great tour guide, she gave us time to explore and gave us so much information on the history of Chicago, the places we visited and made sure everyone was comfortable and even offered us seconds. The places we visited were uniquely Chicago. It was a comfortable walk and we were stuffed when we waddled off to the hotel!

This was a perfect tour! Agi had a perfect blend of knowledge, history, and personality. The food was outstanding and we had all we could eat and then some. The pizza was our favorite part until we stopped in the Chicago Cultural center, we could not recommend this any higher, a go to trip! Thank you Agi!
Great tour!

Nice walking tour and knowledgeable guide. The foods sampled were a great variety. I can’t remember our guide’s name she had great stories and tips.

Did this tour yesterday. Agi was our tour guide and had so much to share, not just food wise but also about the city while we were walking. It might go for 3 hours but it went so fast and the local foods we got to try were incredible. Thank you Agi
So much more than food!

Excellent tour. We enjoyed all of the food stops as well as all of the sights/history...that was an added bonus. Susie was a great guide!
Great Guide, Mediocre Food

Elizabeth was an excellent guide, very personable and knowledgeable about the area and its foods. However, we think the food itself was only average. The Brownie was not enjoyable and the Chicago Hot Dog was nothing special from a bar in the basement of a Macy's. However, Elizabeth took us to the Chicago Cultural Center to see the Tiffany Dome and to the Pedway and showed us many other interesting sites. It was an interesting tour, thanks to Elizabeth, but not the food.
Loved the tour!

Elizabeth was a great guide. She was energetic, knowledgeable and organized. The tour balanced delicious food tasting stops and Chicago history.
