Sarah provided a fun and informative tour of some of Chicago's finest eats, and without waiting in line as the general public must. It was definitely windy and cold, but with bright sunshine to enjoy our donuts, pizza, hot chocolate with churros, tapas and cookies.

Sara our guide was great but the food was not that special and the little bit of history was interesting but I wish there was more of it. Probably if we had chosen the North river tour that might have been more history.

The tour was very informative. I enjoyed the food selections at the various establishments and the city’s history. This was my second city tour and I was completely satisfied with everything. I can’t wait to try another city.
