Make your way to a centrally located meeting point, in time to meet up with your foodie guide and small group of 12 people or fewer.

Your first tasting is a classic Chicago deep-dish pizza, the source of many rivalries with New York. Learn what makes a Chicago deep-dish so special before heading over to another historic spot to taste the dipped Italian beef sandwich. Hear about the origins of this classic sandwich and its founding right here in Chicago.

Next up is a classic Chicago hot dog, topped with seven specific items, and never ketchup. Then, stop by a bar founded in 1898, which made it through Prohibition and Al Capone's bootlegging reign. See some examples of Chicago's famous public art, including a Picasso, a Miro, and a Chagall, before stopping for a salty-sweet mystery 'secret food' beloved by Chicagoans. 

Stroll through Millennium Park to see the famous Cloud Gate sculpture.

Too expensive
, Jun 2021
Too expensive for the food they provide. The tour guide was a nice lady providing some art and architecture information, but it was way too expensive.
Great day

Deanise was very nice and knowledgeable. It felt like walking with. Friend from Chicago versus someone paid to show us around . The food places where delicious , would recommend taking this tour.
Awesome Food Tour
, May 2021
My husband and I do food tours every time we visit a city that has them. This one was right up there with the best. Our tour guide, Denise, was very knowledgeable about the Windy City. The beautiful buildings you pass by and learn about, the stories she tells, and of course the food you eat, makes this a must do tour. Trust me this is not a tasting, do not eat before you go.
Denise & Al Capone’s Drink
, Oct 2020
Denise was such an excellent tour guide, she made this such a fun experience! It was part history and part food tour. Each location was interesting in either a historical or pop culture context as well as all the delicious food we sampled. I can not recommend this tour enough!
Fab Food with Jordan
, Feb 2020
Jordan was fantastic. Kept the group on our toes and very engaged from start to finish! My one thing is that we have rather tried a hot dog (or other native food) than 2 desserts.
Amazing Food Tour!!!!
, Dec 2019
Denise our tour guide was wonderful!! She was knowledgeable, professional and funny. We saw so much of the city, ate the most amazing food and went to secret places we could have never found on our own. My college son had never been to Chicago and is a foodie so he was thrilled with this tour. We would highly recommended it to everyone. Ask for the Denise.. best tour guide ever!!
So Much Fun!
, Oct 2019
The food was great, the guide was great, the tour was great! This was my first food tour and I would definitely do one again! I liked that we saw sights and learned about the city in addition to food sampling. The guide was knowledgeable and the food samples were delicious. The secret restaurant was amazing!

We ate some good food, learned some interesting history, and a nice walk in Chicago on the Secret Food Tour. Our group of 4 joined 6 other nice folks and started at Gino's pizza - yum - from there - well I don't want to spoil the surprises so... Our guide Kylie could not have been more enthusiastic and everyone really enjoyed themselves - recommended!
