My friend and I were on a girls trip to Chicago, and booked this tour, as it had very good reviews. We were not disappointed. We were the only 2 on the tour, Denice was the best host. She was funny and very informative. The tour does not only involve food, but visits to different buildings in between eats. It was fun to hear the history of the buildings. The library was amazing. We were stuffed after the food tour so plan accordingly. We canceled our dinner reservations! Food was deep dish pizza, popcorn, hot dog, chopped beef sandwich, and brownie. All were amazing!

This was a great tour and a great value. Good food samplings with a knowledgeable guide. It was a great way to see a little bit of Chicago and sample some of the classic Chicago foods at interesting venues. The food was always ready to serve when we got to the location and the amount of food provided on the tour seemed very reasonable for the price.

The Chicago food experience in the Secret Food Tour was delicious, informative and fun! We sampled great "native" Chicago foods with some awesome other stops on the tour that did not include food and were really interesting to learn about Chicago's history and culture. 3 dessert options and 2 meal options...Only thing missing from the food tour was the famous Chicago hotdog!
