Explore the River North and Streeterville neighborhoods with your taste buds! We will share our knowledge of Chicago and showcase the diverse history, architecture and culture of downtown Chicago. In the colder months, we'll keep you warm on this tour with limited outdoor exposure, while also giving you a short opportunity to see Chicago’s streets that are home to both modern architectural gems and historically important landmarks. Enjoy the energy of Michigan Avenue and the revered Magnificent Mile which houses historic landmarks including the Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower, the Chicago Water Tower.

When visiting Chicago there are leading restaurants that are “must visits” and this tour is the only one that visits them all. You’ll start with an ample serving of Lou Malnatis Chicago-style deep dish pizza and then graze on the Chicago staples from Al’s Beef (Italian Beef Sandwich), Garrett Popcorn (Chicago-style Popcorn), and Portillo’s (Chicago-style Hot Dog). End this classic Chicago experience with a modern finish at Copper Fox where Chef Courtney has prepared a nutella brownie that pays homage to the chefs at Chicago’s Palmer House Hotel, who created the tasty treat for the World Columbian Exposition of 1893.
