Chicago is so much deeper than deep dish pizza! Let us prove it to you on our food & culture walking tours through some of Chicago's past and present immigrant neighborhoods. Enjoy Vietnamese, Middle Eastern and Swedish foods on our popular Saigon to Stockholm Food Tour through the Northside ethnic enclaves of Argyle and Andersonville. Comfort food fans will love our new Little Italy Food Tour in the University Village/Little Italy neighborhood on the city's Near West Side. In addition to enjoying a 6-course Italian menu, you'll get to browse the first rate memorabilia at the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. Each tour is 3 and half hours and covers 1 and 1/4 miles of walking through charming Chicago neighborhoods.
