Best traditional chicago food tour but beware
Shailaja_I
, Jun. 2022
Beware when they ask you if you feel comfortable on a bike in the beginning - if you raise your hand they make you ride at the back and wear a safety vest. Wish they asked for volunteers first, because i missed a lot of what our guide pointed out on the tour. Other than that, its a great biking food tour in chicago. Burn a little calories while getting a great view and some history from different neighborhoods! All the food was good, as was the beer. Saw some cool places that i probably wouldn’t have gone to as someone visiting. Our guide Nate was great!

Wish we had another beer spot or beer with the hotdogs. Hotdogs needed a drink to go with.

Tour guide had to fix his own flat tire within first 10 minutes and it slowed us down 15 minutes or more and caused us to skip a stop.

The tour was excellent. Brooke was a great guide, keeping us safe and informed during the entire tour. The food stops were great and had a lovely story for them. The beer stops were fine, but nothing special. Mostly we enjoyed the biking itself and the wonderful sights along the way. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone to join us.

Made great new friends and memories. IF I had to complain I'd say it was too short but for most people 4 hours is plenty, but I was willing to go all day this experience was the best city experience I've ever had.

A fun tour but few food options

Definitely a great way to see the city but if you’re used to typical food tours, the restaurant stops were minimal. To me There is better value for the price elsewhere. Tour guides were excellent and equipment was well taken care of

Best Mix-- Carbs and Cardio!
Barbara_R

Great ride, led by Julia. I highly recommend because you get to eat and drink while adding a little cardio. You can't beat that with a stick. I only had one full day in Chicago, so this tour allowed me to maximize my time!
