Great outing eating some of Chicago’s local favorites! - Our Guide Brooke was amazing. We got a great combination of some great local food as well as getting informed about Chicago and its history. I would highly recommend it for anyone that wants to get acclimated with the city, have some good food and fun at the same time.

Chicago - Food Walking Tour - I had an amazing time yesterday with Brooke and the group. Brooke is very personable, sweet, outgoing and knowledgeable. She gave us great recommendations for the rest of our trip (several us came to Chicago to travel). 10/10 recommend and you’ll be full fersure. The money was well worth it, and happy I was able to exercise in between lol.

Perfect way to spend a few hours - Brooke was a terrific guide on our tour last week! There were people from Canada, Scotland, and all over the US in our group, which made it really fun. The food was great, the extra little tidbits we learned about Chicago were really cool, and it was fun to try out some new restaurants that we would have probably never stopped at on our vacation. This was a great way to spend a few hours! Remember to dress for the weather, that wind gets a bit cold at times.
