Best in Chow: Chicago River North Food Tour
Chicago's famous food scene is a huge part of its identity but finding the best of all the options can be daunting. Let a foodie-guide show you the way on this culinary-focused tour of the River North neighborhood. Fill your belly with six tastings of the famous cuisine and avoid waiting in any queues with skip-the-line VIP privileges.
What to Expect
Naturally, the meeting point for this Chicago food tour is Lou Malnati's pizzeria, where you'll get to know your guide and group and get your taste of Chicago's famous deep-dish pizza. This tour allows you to skip any waiting lines and sink your teeth into that piece of pie right away, which will fuel you up for the next 1.4 miles (2.2 kilometers) of walking. 

Learn about the origins of some of Chicago's famous dishes while you walk, a commentary often missing in do-it-yourself food tours. Your guide is well-versed in the history and culinary culture of each tasting you'll have over the next few hours. You'll also see some major landmarks as you try some Mexican street food, hot dogs, popcorn, roast beef, and other local specialties.

Mark walked us though the neighborhood, talked food, buildings, history. He knew it all. We learned about the various deep dish pizzas that the city offers. We learned the 7 requirements of a Chicago hot dog. We ate Nutella brownies, Garret popcorn, sliced beef sandwiches....More

Food and tour guide (Luke) were equally good

Not only did we get a chance to try the iconic foods of Chicago (delicious), but our tour guide was friendly, had a good sense of humor, and shared a lot of information about Chicago.
