"No matter what relative is coming to town, you can wow 'em on one of Chicago Food Planet's Culinary Tours. You'll be treated to tidbits about local history and architecture and, of course, make half a dozen pit stops to sample cuisine from local eateries."
Chicago Food Planet Tours do much more than just take guests into restaurants, they talk about local history and culture and we discovered some things about an area (Chinatown) even we thought we knew everything about. You'll not only be fed, but educated as well. It's a lot of fun, and you meet new people who are interested in food and travel too!
- Steve Dolinsky, ABC7's Hungry Hound Food Reporter
"Foodie fun! These tours offer up town's tastiest treats. Both tourists and those sticking around for a staycation are finding there is much to explore in Chicago's culinary world."

"Sample Chicagos finest foods (and learn a few culinary secrets) with these dining-savvy gourmet guides. Includes multiple stops for samplings, demos, and storytelling about local culinary history. And unlike in a cooking class, on a food-tasting tour, everyone can succeed at the same skill: eating."
"Deep dish pizza, Chicago-style hot dogs, Jewish delis... it's hard to eat your way through the Windy City in one trip. With Chicago Food Planet tours, hungry visitors don't have to choose. A $45 ticket buys a three-hour tour of the city's most delicious neighborhoods."
"Trying new places to eat can be a difficult task amongst a busy schedule. Thankfully a Chicago Food Planet tour can take you out of the everyday and open your eyes to a part of the city you never noticed before."
"This is better than just plunking down in a restaurant because they allow you to get the lay of the land and see what's going on behind the scenes-and you'll likely meet a few local residents, too."
