Overview
Combine tastes of Chicago's most famous foods with stops at local must-see landmarks on a single tour. Instead of spending the day chasing down these foods and highlights on your own, save valuable vacation time by leaving the navigation to someone else. Learn all you ever wanted to know about Chicago's history, both architectural and culinary, through guide commentary over the course of a 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) walk.

Highlights
  • Guide provides information about Chicago's history and culinary culture
  • Walking through the city gives a street-level view of top landmarks
  • Taste locally brewed craft beer with an optional upgrade (own cost)
  • All food samples included to give an overview of the city's most famous foods
What to Expect
Begin your day tasting Chicago’s most famous dishes with—what else?—a stop at the famous Giordano’s Pizzeria. You’ll meet your guide and group of fellow food-lovers there, where you’ll taste deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza before proceeding on your walking loop through downtown. Stroll outside on the surface streets, or if the weather is chilly, head inside to stay on the Chicago Pedway system, which keeps you warm and indoors through most of the walk. Head to Millennium Park to learn about its recent inception and its role as Chicago landmark, then walk along the Chicago River in pursuit of other tastes, such as hot dogs, sweets, and more. All food samples are included, and a locally brewed beer tasting can be added for an additional charge.

The experience was just okay for the price. We paid for 3 pours of craft beer. The craft beer costs an additional $25 per person so we paid $180 in total for this tour and the dessert wasn't even local. We were only given two beers of the three we paid for and the beers weren't

Response from bbhmanager1, Manager at Chicago Favorites Ultimate Food & Walking Tour
Responded 30 Aug 2020
Hi Braman, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We apologize that you were not given your 3 paid for craft beers and we will reimburse you for the difference. With the pandemic, our restaurant vendors have had a hard time keeping our regularly ordered craft beers in stock at the moment. Also, due to the pandemic we've had to switch up a few of our vendors on the fly as some of them are experiencing serious difficulties due to the lock-downs and restrictions. Nevertheless, we are doing our best to support all of our vendors during this difficult time in our industry. While our website has adjusted for these issues, some of our third party vendors such as TripAdvisor have still not been updated. We apologize for that and for not creating the quality tour that we expect of ourselves. We will do better, no matter the circumstances. We will work with TripAdvisor to get you reimbursed for the beers you missed out on. For future guests reading this review, we apologize in advance if some of the beer selections aren't as 'crafty' as we would normally serve on this particular tour and if you decide not to order the beer package because of this we understand. It is an add-on that is optional. Again, it's a difficult time for restaurants and we're just trying to support them the best we can by continuing to visit them. Thanks for understanding.

Nick was a great tour guide. We had a Chicago style hotdog, deep dish pizza, Italian beef sandwich, & nice desserts!! Plus we got to see a lot of downtown that we probably would not have seen otherwise.

We weren’t informed that the meeting place had changed after several phone calls and a 5 minute walk we met our party. The 11:30 tour was over booked and split into 2 groups. The Venus weren’t able to accommodate 2 groups so our group got the short end of the stick. We waited 30
