Wonderful Team Outing!!
Nov. 2021
As a team outing we took the Gateway to Chicago's West Loop Food Tour with Dave. It was an absolutely wonderful and delicious experience!!! Dave was so informative on the history behind the West Loop and kept us laughing throughout the tour! We left full of amazing food, drinks, and knowledge! Highly recommend taking this tour. It was the best way to get together as a team away from the office and we'll definitely be back for the tacos and tequila tour! :)

Iconic Foods of Chicago Tour
Oct. 2021
On our last full day in Chicago, saved the best until last! The Iconic Food Tour of Chicago was worth the wait. Not only was the food at every stop delicious, the history surrounding the origins of each was incredibly interesting. Leah was our guide for a wonderful fun and educational afternoon. No supper needed :)

Great food and storytelling!

We had an awesome time on this tour. Food was delicious and David is an amazing storyteller! My only feedback is that the sampling from Urban Belly felt a little out of place.

Loved everything about it!
Aug. 2021
Our host, Terry, was awesome. So fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our group was made up of some locals and some of our friends from out of town. It was great for everyone! It was so hard to pick a favorite from what we tried, we can't wait to go back to all the places! I'm a picky eater and this tour was great for me. Awesome opportunity to try hidden gems in West Loop.

Great food and tour
Jul. 2021
This was an great tour. Dave did a great job as the guide. So much history in the individual neighborhoods of Chicago. And the food was amazing. Going to the "Time Out" food plaza was a great experience, one which we will do again on our next trip.

A great tour of the West Loop
Jul. 2021
This was a great experience. We had a fun group and got to try a lot of different food. Biggest surprise was the Roman style pizza. Never heard of it before and it was incredible. Dave was a great tour guide and he had lots on information about the food and the city.
