This tour was great and the food was fantastic, but it was Dylan who made the experience memorable. He was a really fun guy and gave really great info about the history of Chicago food and the city in general. I would 100% recommend this tour and suggest that you ask for when Dylan will be giving the tour!

Our guide Teddy was extremely knowledgeable about Chicago architecture and history. He was on time, courteous and the tour was just as it was advertised. It was priced appropriately and I would recommend it for all adults visiting the city known for deep dish pizza (#1 stop), the Chicago all beef hot dog (#2 stop) and Chicago Italian Beef (#3 stop). The last stop was for a chocolate covered treat for dessert. Where your most comfortable walking shoes!

We had a fabulous tour with Julia as our guide. She was upbeat, knowledgeable, and fun. She tried to get to know each and everyone one of us at the beginning to help us be comfortable with each other. This helped when we sat down to eat all the yummy food so we can have nice conversations too. Lots of opportunities for photos, resting our feet, using the restrooms, and, of course, stops for food. We didn’t feel rushed and Julia gave us a lot of history about the buildings, Chicago, and the food. We would highly recommend this tour, especially if you want to experience just about everything and have just a few hours.

The food and the information were both great. We felt like we got a true taste of the city. Our guide Julia was fun and informative and was even able to take on a tornado warning in the city without missing a beat. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting.

This was a lot of fun. The food was great and I really liked learning more about that area of the city. Our guide did a good job negotiating and changing things up a little when the restaurants were too busy to accommodate us at the originally planned time.

Our guide Chloe was very knowledgable and engaging! We enjoyed all the food (my fave was the deep dish pizza), the architectural and historical information, and the overall experience! We’ve been to Chicago many times but it was our first time doing a food tour and 2nd time experiencing an architectural tour, though the first one was on a cruise along the river. The Chicago skyscrapers still never fail to amaze me, no matter how many times i’ve seen it and from how many angles i have viewed it from. I definitely recommend this tour if you would like to learn about the history of some of the most famous Chicago buildings, love to try new food, love sightseeing, and don’t mind walking along the busy streets of Chicago!

Dylan was our tour guide & it was AMAZING! This was my first time in Chicago and he gave us a beautiful tour of the city that had some amazing food & he gave us a lot of history behind the food staples of the city. The tour was perfect start to finish honestly. We arrived just a few minutes early and he was already present waiting for us to check in. We started with the pizza stop that was sooo delicious followed up with Italian beef as we sat riverside and followed up with a Chicago dog!!! Lastly we ended the tour with a brownie. All while Dylan explained the root of each of these. He was amazing. Tour was amazing. Definitely an experience for any first time visitors.

We had a hiccup at the end of our tour. The restaurante where we were scheduled to have the Italian beef sandwich was too busy and unable to seat us. Our tour guide, Hannah, said she had never run into this problem before.
She did not panic and found us another place to get an Italian beef sandwich, which turned out fine.
The walking tour part was a bit slow. I think Hannah could have had more facts and stories about the city of Chicago to share along the way

Tour guide was fun, gave some info on history of food in Chicago. The tour consisted of walking around the area, stopping to eat four times and ending up several blocks from where the tour started. Recommend this for those who want to sample different foods but not for the one who wants a strong tour of history or architecture .

Thanks for taking our tour and we apologize that the tour was not up to our 5 star quality level. As many of our online reviewers have expressed, typically our tours are high quality with not only food, but plenty of history and architecture from our fun, informed guides. That is the high standard we expect of our tours and our guides. So it doesn't sound like your tour was up to our level. That said, we do have a lot of guides on staff and some of which are fairly new to our company. We send out a survey after the tour that allows you to rate your specific guide, the tour itself and provide us feedback. Unfortunately, we did not receive your feedback from this tour, only this review. And the review doesn't give us much to go on with whom to work with on our team to improve their quality level. If you have some time, could you please email us at tours (at) bobbysbikehike.com and give us this feedback and include your guide's name so we may work with them to improve. And for future reviewers, we do have a survey after the tour that we wish you will take, especially if you think something on your tour was not up to our high quality standards. We continuously work with our guides to help improve their craft. But we need the proper information to do so. It helps all of us when this feedback is provided; our business to improve on our services and our future guests' experience if we all work together to help improve the future of our tours and travel in general. So let's use reviews to be constructive and work together. Would you please email us. We would love to get the specific feedback so we may help get this corrected and ensure future tours are always at our five star quality level. Thank you.

I've been to Chicago many times and I firmly believe they have some of the best food in the country. I was excited to hear some history about the food I love. We started with Gio East pizza and it was some of the worst pizza I have honestly ever had. My slice was dry and hard as a rock. It had no meat! It was spinach......the whole group said it was their least favorite pizza they've tried in Chicago. The next stop for the Italian beef was alright. I'd prefer mine soaked. We had hardly any broth and we were in such a rush it ruined it. The hot dog we had was okay. A corner vendor will be just as good. The brownie we had at palmer hotel is not good at all imo. I'd prefer a little Debbie's. We paid extra for beer and never saw any. The tour itself was nice because the guide was knowledgeable but the food sucked for the price tag. I'd look elsewhere for a food tour.
