If you are thinking of doing this- DO IT! - This tour far exceeded our expectations! First and foremost, Reya, our guide was the perfect guide. He shared so many interesting facts about the city, the food and each are we visited. But he didn't talk so much that we felt that we were on an educaitonal tour. The views were amazing and we felt that we got to see a great part of Chicago that we would not have seen had we been on our own. And the food- we got a entire slice of pizza, a loaded hot dog and great serving of gelato. This tour is a great value and a great deal of FUN! Do it!

Super family friendly bike tour - We had a wonderful time on our family and food bike tour with Joe! We have 3 yr old and a 9 yr old boys. The 3 yr old rode on a bike seat with me, and my 9 yr old rode a bike for his size. The bikes were awesome! They were super comfortable and made for an easy ride. I was actually in the market for a new bike and luckily, I was able to buy a used one from them! We drove it all the way back to Michigan with us! The route was a perfect overview of the city. Joe was a great docent. He was super friendly and informative! There was another family on tour with us with that had young kids too. We got along super well and made for an even better experience. The bike tour was my favorite part of our vacation!! They also rent kayaks and paddle boards. They give you a discount on them after a bike tour! We rented a paddle board the next day.

Best of Chicago on bikes - We took our grandsons, ages 11 and 13, on the Chicago City and Food Tour. There were 8 others who joined our group. Joe was our guide and was great with the kids! We saw a lot of sights and sampled Chicago style pizza, hot dogs, and gelato. Overall, a great experience. The kids loved it and want to do it again which says it all!!
