Welcome to My Chicago. It’s Delicious Here.

Just like you, when I have friends in town, I want to show them the parts of the city they wouldn’t find on their own. I want them to see my Chicago, to get a taste of what this place means to me.

I started hosting food tours for hungry locals and visitors more than 15 years ago. Over that time, I’ve put down deep roots in the community which means we can offer an experience that no one else can – a Chicago food tour that’s authentically us.

At Chicago Food & City Tours, I’ve put together an amazing team of local experts passionate about our city’s food and history. They put a lot of work into making you feel like you’re part of Chicago’s story, and they make it look fun and easy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Way more than Deep Dish & Italian Beef (but we got that, too!)

Absolutely! More than half of our guests are local to the Chicagoland area, and they always say the same thing: “I learned so much about Chicago’s history and restaurant scene that I didn’t know!” Locals who come on our tours will find their new favorite date night spot, and can impress their visiting friends with all their Chicago “insider” knowledge.

Yeah, we hate that, too. And, no, no umbrellas or bullhorns. Our guides feel more like part of the group. They’re friendly without being annoying, and they don’t just recite a script. We hire people who love this city, and we train them extensively to make their job look effortless. No cringey tourist stuff, we promise.

No need to make reservations for after the tour. You’ll enjoy the equivalent of a full meal or more on our food tours.

Rain or shine, you gotta eat! Unless the weather looks like it’ll threaten the safety of our guests or guides, the tours will run in most conditions. If it’s too wet or cold, we’ll just spend more time indoors at our restaurant partners. And we’ve got some snazzy ponchos for you just in case.

If you let us know when you book your tour, we CAN provide vegetarian-friendly tasting, but we CANNOT offer alternatives or substitutions for any other allergies (including lactose intolerant) or dietary restrictions (including vegan and gluten free). Vegetarian-friendly options must be requested in advance during the ticket purchase process.
