If you can only do one tour in Chicago, make it the Tastebud Chicago Food Tour. Tour guide Annalynn hosted a brilliantly balanced tour of sampling local food and a welcome amount of walking in between eateries. In addition to sampling local fare, the tour also stops at some beautiful cultural establishments and monuments in between. Annalynn's knowledge and enthusiasm for Chicago positively shines as she delivered one of the best walking tours I've been on in recent times. Five stars.

Elizabeth was our tour guide and she did a great job. Very knowledgeable about the places on the stop as well as Chicago history and facts. It's a fun tour and you'll get some exercise along the way. Had out of town guests and this was a great way to show them some of the city and Chicago inspired food!

The tour was terrific! 6 stops for tastings (Pizanos Pizza, Goddess and the Baker, Al's, Fannie May Chocolates, Sugar Bliss, and Berghoff's); which were all delicious. Plus, we learned about the history of each site. We also visited Millennium Park and saw "The Bean" as well as stopping by the Chicago Cultural Center. Our tour guide, Anna-Lynn was very knowledgeable about the food stops as well as giving us insight into the historical stops. I would gladly take another Chicago tour from this company!!!
